No need for fancy explanations about this one: Two master guitarists, Leo Kottke and Chet Atkins, perform a sublime version of the Santo & Johnny’s instrumental classic from 1959, “Sleep Walk,” on Prairie Home Companion back in 1987. The video is less than ideal, but the audio is excellent and the performance sublime! —Blair Jackson


Santo and Johnny Farina scored a #1 hit with “Sleep Walk” in September 1959.
