Cool Sounds to Hear

No, these cuts are not me playing the steel guitar!

Rather, these are some obscure, way-cool recordings from my collection that I feel should be heard by those who cherish the great steel players of days gone by.

Call The Hounds Andy Parker and the Plainsmen from a live 1946 Hollywood Barn Dance broadcast, with George Bamby on accordion and Joaquin Murphey on steel guitar.
Kid With The Rip In His Pants Roy Rogers recording featuring great steel guitar by Joaquin Murphey. This song was written by Jack Owens, a Methodist minister who also wrote the Hawaiian classic "Hukilau."
Buddie's Boogie A 1950's live radio cut of Buddy Emmons with Little Jimmy Dickens doing a different version of this tune than the one recorded for Columbia
Throw A Saddle On A Star A great song by Ozie Waters and Hank Caldwell, recorded by Ozie with the Plainsmen and featuring a great solo by Joaquin. This is Speedy West's favorite Murph solo.
Yearning A 1955 Decca recording by Spade Cooley, from the Dance-O-Rama series. Fantastic Murph solo.
Jimmie's Jump An instrumental done at a Jimmie Widener session from the late 40's, don't know the personnel except for Joaquin.
