I got an advance copy of Steve's Texas Dance Hall Classics III last week, and have been enjoying playing with it a lot since I got it. The play list includes favorites that would be good for any steel player to have in their repertoire. The production and performances are great, and it is mercifully done without cheezy synth patches and gobs of midi. Just sounds like human beings playing good music, with lots of room for a steeler to work around the vocals,(fills,pads,comping) and room to solo as well. Steve tells me the package will include chord charts. He further informs me that for a ridiculously small added charge, he will include a separate disc of the tracks without vocals, for those who wish to work on voice leading and melody work, as well as extended soloing. I think not purchasing this option would be a false economy. I believe that this package would be a great tool for self instruction and advancement. I also think that it could be a very helpful tool in a more structured instruction/lessons program. It's also just a lot of fun!

This disc is all live musicians playing real instruments, and is structured as if the player is playing a set with a band that doesn't rush or drag, and wants to hear as much steel as possible.

I too got the advance mixes a couple of weeks ago, and they sound Great! Real instruments played by real musicians... excellent practice tracks and I highly recommend them. I particularly like the clean tones of the acoustic guitar and acoustic bass, and brushes on the snare for a lot of the tunes. Good vocals, and plenty of open space for steel guitar solos, intros, fills, etc. These tracks will improve your playing.

These tracks are outstanding - I've
been using them a lot for practice
as well as teaching since getting
them from Steve a short while back.

Nice vocals, and the Rhythm Section
has a great 'feel', makes ya wanna 'dig
in', as if you were on the bandstand,
not to mention a well-chosen songlist.

Thanks, Steve, for taking on another set
of tracks for us with this project.

A bump for all three of Steve's CDs. In fact, the vocals are so strong that I play full cuts from time to time on my "Swingin' West" radio shows.

Steve, I'm getting a check out to you today for V3.

I strongly endorse these tracks by Steve, the song selection is great, you get vocals so you can figure out the melody, and the solo sections are nice and long so you can practice taking rides.

For all the jam sessions taking place around the country, if they'd base a lot of songs on any of these classic songs, I think a lot of players who'd ordered these songs could come in much better prepared, since they'd learn the melodies in advance.

In Los Angeles, we jam to BIAB, but if you don't know the song and how the melody goes, you're pretty well sunk.

Steve, I hope you can release all songs in V1 and V2 sans vocals as well, then jam sessions could just play the tracks, with or without vocals, and anyone who owns the tracks would be on the same page, same key, etc.

Thanks for the endorsement, John. I'm looking into a no-vocal version of Vol. I; it depends on a couple of esoteric (to me, anyway ) computer issues. I'll find out about Vol. II, which was done at a different studio on different equipment.

I have made arrangements to release a no vocals version of Vol. I. It will be $10 by itself and $5 if ordered with any other of my discs. It should be ready in a couple of weeks.
