About 2 months ago, while we were doing a jigsaw puzzle and drinking coffee at 8 o'clock at night (because that's the extent of my exciting life), we dug out the old Neil Young CD, Old Ways. We hadn't listened to it in many years, like before I started playing banjo in 2003. The song, Back to the Country came on and there was some great backing banjo. I looked on the song info and it's none other than the great Bobby Thompson. If you want to hear some great, tasteful complementary banjo playing, check it out! Back to the Country

Was listening to an mp3 of Area Code 615 yesterday, totally headed the correct direction ,with super pickers . Certain Neil songs I can't get too much off. I call him the king of the whiners

Judy Thompson once showed me a list of Bobby's recording credits. It was several pages - typed - single-spaced - three columns per page. The names on the list are a Who's-Who of coutry and rock (including Neil Young, Paul McCartney ... and many others).

But ... being a child of the 1960s - the name that really caught my eye was "the Monkees"

It would be wonderful to see that list if it's been "published" or put anywhere online.

yeah the monkees used bobby and buddy spicer on the album "the monkees present" 1969 a few numbers on "the missing link" album recorded in 1968,, who also had glenn campbell,, and james burton on it.

in the mid 70s bobby played on a project that paul mcCartney and chet adkins did in a mock band called the country hams,,,  and on a soundtrack  for a movie called ethel and ernest.
