My guest this week is the superb fiddle player, steel guitarist, sideman and composer David Mansfield. At age 18, David joined Bob Dylan's band for four years, starting with the legendary touring spectacle "Rolling Thunder Revue". He recorded three albums with Dylan and appears on numerous compilations and live albums, including "Biograph" and "Bob Dylan Live 1975 The Bootleg Series Vol. 5". David went on to form The Alpha Band along with fellow Rolling Thunder Review members T-Bone Burnett and Steve Soles. He later produced the soundtrack for numerous films including "Heaven's Gate" and "Year of the Dragon".
