Looking for group playing in an episode of A Mind to Kill
22 January 2006 | by shirleyafranklinSee all my reviews

I love the music being played by a country and western group, song seems to be Guardian Angel, I am not sure of the episode as I have it on an old tape and no title. It has to do with a bunch on vigilantes who drag a boy behind the truck and he gets strangled, they think that he killed one of their sons in a hit and run.

I would appreciate any help, I am going to take the music off the tape but their is a lot of talk going over it.

I really like the series, I am not sure how many we have on our great pile of tapes and must have more on them.

It is difficult to understand sometimes but he plays such a good part, I liked the ones with his daughter in them.
