If you listen to tunes when you run or exercise, one of the greatest motivators is the old standard, “Orange Blossom Special”, as done by the Hellecasters. It was released on their 1993 debut, ‘The Return of the Hellecasters’. As you can probably guess, the Fender Telecaster plays a big role in the group. All three members of the Hellecasters are respected Telecaster players in their own right: Jerry Donahue from Fairport Convention, John Jorgenson from the Desert Rose Band, and session man Will Ray.

These fellas ride the “Orange Blossom Special” at blistering speeds. It’s 7 minutes of supercharged instrumental hillbilly rock n’ roll.
