At the end of track 10 on CD3, Scotty introduces Ron Elliot, who was inducted into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in St Louis this afternoon. (9/5/09)
Hearing another version of Jimmy Day do "I love you because" is a dream come true.
Before CD3 track 17, Scotty says Lloyd Green is up next but, it sort of sounds like they let Jimmy Day play one more. (I have not made it through the entire thing yet)
|John, Lloyd Green plays on the Disc 1 tracks at the top. On Disc 1 track 3, at the end, the MC (Scotty?) nearly comes out of his shoes over Lloyd's steel-playing. He re-announces Lloyd's name end of track 4. It's very possible that Tape 1 is actually Tape 2, and visa-versa, as far as the correct chronological order goes. I have not listened to these tapes in over 30 years. I doubt they were ever dubbed or copied. Maybe they had 10-playback passes on them. Mint condition.
I can't remember much at all about the venue. It was a very busy year for stellar venues for me -- they came one after the other. I was fulltime soundman at this time. I was living with a house-full of talented musicians in Louisville, KY. I met many - if not most - of the best performers and players. And I was taping many of them during live performances. I explained this to the folks at the Pedal Steel Convention in 1976. I told them I brought my taping gear with me and I was hopeful I could tape the best players there. They made every accommodation for me to get my Taper's kit setup, hooked in, and taping these players. I listen to these tapes now, and I am speechless.
thanks so much for digging them up and sharing!!!!
|thanks Monte! the amsassador, fox theatre, kiel opera house, kiel center, and st. louis arena were the big ones during 1976. then, there was the mississippi river festival at siu in edwardsville...nothing like a trip down memory lane. personally, i will always miss the ambassador. appreciate the gem!
|wow - so much steel, so little time!
thanks Monte - looks like a treasure trove of great music :)
and I'm gonna guess d3t16 is Scarborough Fair, made popular by Simon & Garfunkel...
way cool! -Zeb
|I've listened some more, and read your comments. I'm more than 50% sure I have Tape 1 and Tape 2 reversed in order chronologically. I'll say 3 more things about 5 famous pedal steel players and their tapes.
