By request here's a look at Toy Caldwell's intro on "Fire On The Mountain". It's off the Marshall Tucker Band's "Searchin' For A Rainbow" album. I'll check out the break next. See what you think and as always, corrections and comments are welcome. Great band, great album Smile
Here it is on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uMWbZj-gWg

Wow. Yet another song from my youth that I haven't heard in years -- and never realized there was steel on. Heard those sounds when we were young, but never really thought about where they came from. It's obvious to me now.

Then again, it wasn't easy to hear stuff that well on the AM radio in the car...

Nice choice, Jeff.

Thank your for posting! This is the song that got me into learning pedal steel.

Thanks guys...I think a bunch of us must all be about the same age and have similar backgrounds (and have had the same record albums!). My introduction to pedal steel was through country rock...New Riders of the Purple Sage, Commander Cody, Flying Burrito Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Grateful Dead, etc. This was long before videos so I wasn't even sure how they made that sound but I knew I liked it. It wasn't until later on that I discovered traditional country like Ray Price and George Jones.
