I've often wondered if these ladies were hired for the shoot or if they just found the 2 best looking gals at the pool that day and asked them to pose with a steel guitar and 2 plastic shovels. anyone know where this was shot?? it's quite a pool

Where are they today? They are residing in my album collection as well as the steel guitar section of my CDs. That album has absolutely stood the test of time.

Doug being a steel guitar hero and all.

That's no ordinary swimming-pool, it's the Fountain of Youth.

It has to be because, even on my CD version of Doug's album, they haven't aged one bit.

Doug's 'My Funny Valentine' has to have been the first out-and-out classic American jazz-orientated standard I ever heard played on a pedal steel. I was overwhelmed to say the least; fifty years later, it's still one of my favourite steel recordings.

I'd have guessed the Sheraton, at Waikiki?
Anyway that's two lovely beauties, right there!

They actually look like sisters if you look closely at their eyes.

Somebody has to know! Has anyone ever talked to Doug about this photo? I thought about asking him one time but was too timid.

Back of album says "Front Photo Courtesy of Emmons Guitar Co." Do you think they built the Emmons guitars?

I heard from Doug, he said that picture was taken in 1970 at a motel in Myrtle Beach SC. He does not know who the girls were, he said the picture was taken by Ron Lashley. The album is still owned by Emmons Guitar.

I would wager that all four of 'em are just a tad closer to their navels than they were 52 years ago.
