Bob Taillefer produced this wonderful CD by some of Canada's top steel guitarists. Seventeen master players contributed tracks to the project, producing an astonishing variety of musical styles. There's not a bad track on this album!
Produced by the legendary Pete Drake in 1987, this is a collection of steel guitar instrumentals by some of Nashville's hottest players. The songs are all pop standards. Excellent arrangements and top notch steel playing ... Thank you, Mr. Drake!

Sacred Steel Convention"
For those who attended in 2002, I'm sure it was an event they'll always remember. For the rest of us this CD will have to suffice. Packed full of rockin' spiritual energy, this collection is a great introduction to the Sacred Steel movement. It features most of the best SS players in the world, playing for an enthusiastic crowd. Note that while several of the songs include vocals, only the steel players are listed below.
OUT OF STOCK
On this avant guarde collection, 16 different steel guitarists explore the outer reaches of the instrument.
Sorry, sold out
"Northern Steel II "
Another Bob Taillefer production, this is the 2007 followup to the ever-popular Northern Steel CD. 20 tracks by Canada's best steel guitarists. The steel guitar brands used are listed in the credits, for those of us who enjoy trying to differentiate between the tones. Music made by steel players for steel players!
"Stars of the Steel Guitar"
The original Starday LP of this was my first steel guitar record. I was amazed at all of the different styles that performers had back then - you could instantly identify a player by his tone and phrasing. Everyone had their own special tuning and copedent to get their own sound.
I have every track from this CD in rotation on my iPod. Many of the players have passed away, but I still love listening to them. They just don't make instrumental records like this anymore.
