Guitar Spectacular - The Incredible Steel Guitar Stylings Of Speedy West
The Incredible Steel Guitar Stylings Of Speedy West
Capitol Records ST 1835
West's last Capitol album. Group members included Roy Lanham, Billy Strange, Billy Liebert and drummer Earl Palmer.
One of my favorite tracks is a beautiful tune titled Afternoon Of A Swan.
West was so prolific that is hard to fathom how hard working he was. He played on some 6,000 recordings with a total of 177 different artists. And this was only between 1950 and 1955!
Check out West's wiki page for the details.
Of course this LP can be had on CD, so I won't be posting samples here.
