Shall I let you into a little secret re the fox? ........................................................... :-)

From Wikipedia -
“Area Code 615 was the name of a Nashville country rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s, taking their name from the telephone area code, which at the time covered all of Central and Eastern Tennessee. The band was made up of session musicians, recording only two albums before resuming normal session work. Their best known work was "Stone Fox Chase", which was used as the theme to the British Broadcasting Corporation's music programme The Old Grey Whistle Test.”

Wayne Moss: guitar, bass, engineer, studio owner
Charlie McCoy: harmonica
Weldon Myrick: pedal steel guitar
Bobby Thompson: banjo
Buddy Spicher: fiddle
David Briggs: piano
Norbert Putnam: bass
Mac Gayden: guitar
Kenny Buttrey: drums, producer, occasional cross cut saw
Elliot Mazer: producer, engineer, occasional Farfisa organ

I did not know until I bought the cd reissue of the only two albums they released that Wayne Moss played the famous guitar riff on Roy Orbison's “Pretty Woman”and that Wayne, Charlie and Kenny were the rhythm section on Bob Dylan's “Blonde on Blonde”

And, somewhere I have the 45 rpm of “Morning Glory” released by Mac Gayden.........a classic :-)

It is also so sad to find out that Weldon Myrick (born 10 April 1938) passed away on 2 June 2014 following a stroke.

RIP Weldon

Nice rural scenery, Roger. The fox is a clever addition to the composition.
