Shoot’in The Tube:: How ‘Bout The Sweet Sounds Of The Ole Steel!

Welcome to another fine edition of P&S’s “Shoot’in The Tube” – where we unearth choice clips from the trillions of videos via www.youtube.com/. Whats in store this week?

Gotta admit, we’re all suckers for the sweet sounds of the ole pedal steel guitar. It’s not just the instrument for country music. One of our favorite steel players was OrvilleRed” Rhodes. He’s most notable for his work with Michael Nesmith – both in The Monkees and later with The First National Band. Rhodes later did all kinds of session work in the 60’s and 70’s for artists like James Taylor, John Phillips, Carole King, and Seals & Crofts to name a few – he also played on these very fine timeless songs…
