ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1975, Pete Drake, a huge fan of Jimmy and Speedy's asked them to record this CD in Nashville, Tn. Musicians watched for hours during the week of recording sessions in amazement at their technique at Pete's Place Studio.

Speedy West: His uniquely identifiable style, combined with chordal executions single string riffs, achieved public recognition of the steel guitar and Speedy's name. He pioneered the "Crash-Bar" technique, composed instrumentals that became classics and was "Steel Guitar's Foremost Showman". Speedy was inducted into the Rockabilly and Steel Guitar Hall of Fame.

Jimmy Bryant: This self-taught guitarist made a name as a top session player with his country-jazz style playing alongside Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Gene Autry and many, many more. Alongside steel guitar legend Speedy West, Bryant pioneered the modern country music style and technique commonly referred to as "chicken-pickin" which is far more difficult to perfect than Bryant made it seem. He never conformed, having a gift for improvising. He always found new and exciting ways to play arrangements in studio sessions, giving recordings a much needed flare.
