The best of the best!

Unfortunately, we who need our dose of Burton on a regular basis will have to be satisfied with what's out there now, which is much more than itunes has. Burton was diagnosed and died of cancer this year and was a dear friend and fellow musician whom I am sorry I didn't spend more time musically with. Another case of regretting squandered time, don't get caught in the trap.

Burton is just wonderful, his voice, his bass simplistic phrasings, his combination of those musicians on his recordings whereby you can just feel their 'positive vibes. His other songs and albums are as good if not better, and I have it on good sources that there are tons of material, some very recent, some old, that has never been released. His legacy will be remembered, God Bless you, brother.
