"...I have a friend who likes to refer to musicians of unprecedented skill, especially guitar players, as witches. Richard Bennett, who co-wrote some of the songs herein and anchored the Guitar Town sessions, is a witch of the first order. With an arsenal that includes an oversized hollow body Gretsch, a white Telecaster, a six-string bass, Bennett scrawls and etches tone and shape and feeling on Earle's Everyman psalms and ravers. Liquid in one place, bottomy in another, it is a muscular thing being done - and Bennett provides much of the structure."

From article on Steve Earle's Guitar Town by Holly Gleason, who has written for Rolling Stone, Creem, Musician, Interview, Pulse, the New York Times, the L.A. Times
