Ry Cooder was once asked what was the most difficult task he had ever undertaken, without any hesitation Cooder replied "Trying to recreate that old valve sound in the recording studio". Every time I recall this I am reminded of recordings like Virgel Bozman's "Way Down Here In Mississippi", in which you can hear the lovely rounded tones of the unidentified guitarist.
