I'll never forget when I heard "The Happy Goodman Family" Live album in the late 70's. I was overwhelmed with the emotion, sustain, deep clear tone that I heard through the speakers. After several songs of steel guitar heaven, I immediately flipped through to the credits and discovered Lloyd Green at the helm. Add Green and Spicher's fiddle, and the sounds of the Happy Goodmans, who by the way all of them had Great Vocals, Rusty, Sam, Howard, Vestel with good ole Gospel music, and you have something special.

This is my favorite Steel "fill/feel" album of all time, even of today.

Ken:

For a live album, one of my favorites is Gary Stewart "Live at Billy Bob's" with the fantastic playing of Steve Palousek. He plays lots of 'fills' and lots of 'rides', too. Great tone as well as execution.

On a studio album, Ray Price's "Time" with Buddy Emmons is a 'must have'. The very first song on the CD, "You Just Don't Love Me Anymore" still blows me away. The Big E is on every cut, including some dobro work.

I think that message you left on Dad's phone the other day of you playing was my favorite! Razz

The intro on "What a Lovely Name" is killer Lloyd . . . and I can't find it online. (I'd like to point a country-gospel artist to it.) Can anyone help? (YouTube has a lot, but not everything, maybe.)

Roger Miller’s A TRIP IN THE COUNTRY is a contender. Emmons.

Right now Ray Charles’ “Volcanic Action Of My Soul”, with Buddy Emmons and a stellar band, comes to mind. But there are so many...

I’ll second Johnny on the Live at Panther Hall album with Lloyd Green. I think I wore out my, wait for it, 8-Track tape of this great album.

Ken listen to the Happy Goodmans "Wanted Live" recorded in St. Louis in 1971. Jack Smith was their steel player and some of the best steel playing on record. Jack stated he was 16 years old when it was recorded.

Norman,

That's the song but not the specific live track with Lloyd Green.

Thank you for the reply.

Reggie Duncan found a different cut from the 1977 The Very Best of the Happy Goodmans Live! album with Lloyd Green: I'm Nearer Home.

What Heaven Means To Me (That fill phrasing, following the intro!)

Hallelujah (chicken pickin') from the same record. Sound like Lloyd's Ten Shades of Green tube rig?

(Plenty of copies of the album on eBay. Should sound dandy in your 1978 Chevelle . . . since they are 8-track! I got the low-fi, inconvenient-format blues.)

I am with Greg Jones. It don't get no better than this Buck Owens Live at Carnegie Hall. Tom Brumley just has an instinct to fill at the right place. His tone and touch are just amazing. I never tire of listening to this album. It is just so exceptional. J.R. Rose

I have a new favorite. I stumbled across a cut from Gene Watson's "My Gospel Roots" album and I was blown away by the guitar and steel on the old Dottie Rambo song "Build My Mansion Next Door To Jesus" Paul Franklin played steel on this cut and Gregg Galbraith played electric guitar. I just downloaded the whole album and haven't listened to all of it yet but I'm sure the rest of it is just as good. Dirk Johnson did some nice piano work too.

A trip in the country was a real bell ringer for me. Bold use of the instrument and Buddy Emmons genius, combined with the songwriting genius of Roger Miller..all in service of the song.

Yeah seminal for me.

I agree, Alan! Nesmith with Red Rhodes. I still listen to them A LOT. My fave albums are Magnetic South and Loose Salute.

Doug Sahm's "The Return of Wayne Douglas"...Tommy Detamore's steel on every cut. An encyclopedia of great licks.
