"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.
