One of my favorites steel solos is on Ely's "Because of the Wind"- just beautiful by Lloyd.

Thanks, Olaf. Lloyd really does that here. And very nice to hear Joe at his best. Too bad bands don't stay together forever.

Yeah, that'd be Lloyd Maness, Erv. Neutral

Honky tonk masquerade is one of the best albums of all time in my opinion, 'west texas waltz' alone is worth the price of admission.

'Because of the wind' especially captures the west Texas vibe, and Lloyds steel steels the show.

As a young kid going there from New Jersey to study at Texas Tech, it was totally appropriate, I realized how big this great country is and how diverse it is. Compared to home, I felt like I was on the moon.

Sadly Ely had gone to Austin by the time I got there, but his music filled the Honky Tonks, and his presence was still there.

Would love to see Lloyd play again with Joey, just missed Joe last week in Lubbock playing with Jerry Allison.

Lloyd Maines is a superb player. Saw him first with Joe Ely. He must enjoy playing with the Dixie Chicks, with his daughter Natalie Mains in the line up Very Happy

Lloyd Maines has been on my list of top players for ever. But while were talking about his work with Joe Ely and the Chicks, he also played with Jerry Jeff Walker.

Here is a clip from The Texas Connection:

He's on it throughout the whole song, but from about 2:52 and out, he really rips!

Search Youtube for Jerry Jeff Walker Texas Connection and you will get several more great clips.

Classic stuff, thanks. There are legendary musicians from The Hub, Ponty Bone and Taylor included along with Maines....


So many Lubbockites (is that the correct demonym for folks hailing from Lubbock?) came to Austin during the 70's and early 80's. Do y'all forumites from Lubbock remember the The Hub City Movers? I believe John Reed (later to be known as John 'X' Reed of the "keep Austin weird" band, the Uranium Savages) was a member of the Hub City Movers. Ah, those halcyon days in Austin - long gone, but not forgotten. Smile

Keep on pickin'!

Correct on all counts, Glenn. Mass exodus.

(I had only copied Joey's lyrics, whether correct or not.)
(It's on the internet, so... no mea culpa.) (Just don't forget I'm hip.)

I do not remember when Maines moved to Austin. I became aware of the migration maybe 1973 or 4. It was like they all leaped together.

I want to say that Lloyd moved to Austin around 1975. In 1973-74 I had done some recording with Jerry Jeff and the Lost Gonzo Band, and that went away when Lloyd came to town to live, and I divided time between MMMurphey and Alvin Crow.
