Stu, unless you're referring to the vinyl version, it's still around.

I haven't heard those tracks in probably 35 years. Thanks for the post. Tom Brumley was a very strong early influence on me. I loved his playing.

What a great talent Ricky Nelson was, and what an enormous shame he died so young. Sad

In the open air concert clip he had Dennis Larden on guitar.
Bobby Neal was on the other ones. He died with Rick Nelson in the plane accident.
Although without steel guitar the "Live 1983- 1985" is worth having.

I was lucky to hear Tom Brumley play with the Desert Rose Band in the early nineties, I still regret that I didn't say hello Sad

There was a used ZB in Ray Hennings Heart of Texas in Austin many years ago when I was looking for my first steel, and I used to sniff around it every time I went in there. I had asked Ray what he wanted for it and he told me it belonged to Tom Brumley, and told me a story about he and Tom. Said he would have to ask him about the steel. Came in there a few weeks later and asked Ray if he had talked to Tom and he said, "No, but he's right back there messing with it so go ask him." I walked back in the back area and he was bent over the case and I said "Excuse me Mr. Brumley." He politely asked me to call him Tom. We got to talk for a few minutes, I don't remember any of the conversation cause I was star struck, probably made a "real impression" on him! I do remember that he talked to me like I was a friend from the first word he spoke to me. What a nice guy, and an amazing steel player. I've kicked myself many times for not dropping the money on that steel when I had the chance.

Hi Doug, Loved your story. Yes, Ray was a good friend of ours. If it's the one that has a plaque on the front, saying Tom Brumley, I still have it. I'm selling it for $8000.00. It has so much history with it. He used it with Rick Nelson, and many many others.Thanks, Rolene Brumley

Hi Rolene! It could be the one, but so many years have passed, I can't be sure. I remember it had a pad on the back like this one, but... too many years ago!
What a great piece of history. That one should be in a glass case! God Bless you Rolene!

That pix seems to show 6 keys on one side and only 5 keys on the other.

Are my eyes deceiving me??

I have moved and cannot place my hands on the copy of FRETTS with Tom's interview. However, if memory serves me correctly, he had an eleven string tuning at the time of the interview.

Leroy Riggs, A long time ago I read an interview with Tom Brumley where he told how he had an 11 string E-9 guitar built so he could cover Don's rhythm parts while Don was soloing. The interview might have been in the Steel Guitar Record Club LP or in Guitar Player Magazine.

I did not know that. Interesting!!

What a beautiful guitar!!

Thanks Rolene for the new pix. It also seems to show 11 strings.

I just learned why I can't play like Tom -- I have 12 strings -- not just 11. Wink Smile

Thanks to this thread I just picked up one of my all time favorite recordings from Amazon! Been looking for a long time. A brand new copy, although an overstock with a small notch in the cover, unopened. I can't wait to hear She Belongs to Me again.I'll take the notch for the pristine vinyl Thanks for the info

I just ordered the LP and should have it next week. Will let you know if its the fold out or not. Worth the 20 dollar price just for the music though

I have had the pleasure of seeing this ZB SD11. It`s a stunning guitar with a tone to match. For the active player, this combines great looks with that classic ZB tone, and for the collector, - well, this one won`t exactly depreciate over time!
And like it was pointed out, Tom Brumley used 11 strings so as to be able to duplicate Don Rich`back up licks when Don himself was busy singing harmony with Buck.
But aside from that, the expanded E9th. tuning with 11 strings offers many possibilities. Tom himself said that the 11th. string made the C6 neck superfluous, since he got the jazzier sounds he wanted. And hearing him do "Take the A Train" during a Joey Riley show, I could have sworn he was playing C6!
This ZB is a rare treasure from Hall of Famer Tom Brumley and a good investment

I've just found out that there is an extended version released from the "Troubadour" gigs. It's a double cd.
This should be very interesting for fans!
