My friend David turned me on to this tune. Lots of time for the pedal steel to shine on the intro, fills and solos. I thought some of you might be interested. I'm usually late to the party so this may be old news to some of you.

I'm not usually a fan of covers, but I think this is like what PF's Wish you Were Here would have been on the original cut with a little more country edge. [I know that David Gilmour plays steel guitar too.]

Maybe someone can tell us who played steel on this recording? I believe Austin Tripp is currently touring with Cody Jinks band.

Anyway, Cody and his ilk are doing way more country stuff than so called country music artists are doing. Is it all country? No, but there's a lot of traditional sounding stuff and gobs of steel guitar.

Cody, Whitey Morgan and the 78's, Jamey Johnson, Sturgill Simpson, Mo Pitney, Lera Lynn, Margo Price et al. are using steel players, some are producing the music too, like Josh Grange did with Lera Lynn.

Then there's Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, Big Sandy been around for a while, so I'm hearing a lot of steel guitar around. I see and hear most of it on PBS...shows like Austin City Limits, Music City Roots, Bluegrass Underground, Michael Jonathan's Old Time Radio Hour etc.

There's a lot of steel guitar around. Just don't expect much from broadcast radio.

Here's a live version with Austin, I think, playing steel. https://youtu.be/Pwzbhp2qOfo

Pink Floyd was and is still my favorite group.
Their music/lyrics have always been different and imaginative.
I still remember the first time I heard "Dark Side of the Moon" back in '73.

.........and I really like this version of "Wish You Were Here".
I had no idea.......thanks for posting it.

Dierks Bentley also did a nice cover on the Fallon show. Too bad they decided they needed to talk over the intro in this youtube.

Hey Jerry! Yes it was me that recorded the steel on the track! I'm very fortunate to be working with Cody in the studio and on the road and he loves the steel guitar!

Thanks for the reply Austin. Love your work. Must be a fun gig.

Like I said earlier, I'm so glad to hear some honest music from the country field for a change. I'll be listening and looking for more.
