I'm looking for some pedal steel heavy live albums to listen to. I have Pride's "Live at Panther Hall", Parsons "1973", Boland's "High in the Rockies", Paycheck's "New York Town". What do you all suggest?

This one was mentioned on the forum just a few months back -- New Riders of the Purple Sage w/Buddy Cage, "Home, Home On The Road":

Sounded pretty good to me!

You can't go wrong with the two LPs Buddy Emmons recorded in St. Louis at the convention way back when.

Gary Stewart "Live at Billy Bob's". Doesn't get any better than Steve Palousek's honky tonk steel.

Here's one I did with Dale Watson, years ago.
Johnny Bush said this is his favorite "LIVE" show to listen too.

Ronnie Milsap with Dickie Overby is a great album also.

I agree about that Milsap record, John. The whole band is terrific but Dickie is exceptional. I've always loved Ronnie's work no matter how 'cross-over' he gets.

What about that ending lick he plays on 'Country Cooking'?

I saw them at the London Palladium in '74. I'd never heard of him up until then but Milsap was the support act to Glen Campbell and he just had himself on piano, bass, drums, guitar and Dickie O. What a great sound they had and they easily held their own next to Glen with his orchestra, rhythm-section and singing group.

I was going to mention the Dale Watson "Live in London......England!" cd, with Ricky Davis. Outstanding.

Also, Rick Nelson "Live at the Troubadour" with Tom Brumley is killer.

Waylon Jennings "Waylon Live" with Ralph Mooney is essential! Get the expanded reissue, for sure. All killer, no filler.

I love a good live album.

Ween Live in Toronto w/Stu Basore

also check out this incredible Ray Price show from '65 with Buddy Emmons... not the best sound quality but man oh man. recorded by the forum's own Kenny Dail, may he rest in peace.

Oh, and let's not forget Commander Cody's live albums "We've Got A Live One Here!" and "Live From Deep In The Heart Of Texas".

Steel is by the great Bobby Black... One of the most under-rated Hall-Of-Famers. On these, Bobby plays many very fast licks and runs similar to Buddy or Doug that have since become common, but most players were not yet playing that way back then. Plus, he executes everything very clean and precise.

They should be 'Required Listening'!

I think there is also a "Live in London" album by Bill Anderson & the Po Boys, with Sonny Garrish on steel.

Kind Regards, Walter

I'll add Emmylou Harris's "Last Date" one of my all time faves, with Steve "Fish" Fishell playing steel. I've a lot of miles with that record.

Bobby's playing is equally phenomenal on The Black Brothers Band "Pickin In A Skull Orchard"
https://steelguitarmusic.com/music/bobbyblack.html

Also, Ricky Skaggs "Live In London", with Bruce Bouton on steel.

"The Amazing Zigzag Concert" (Disc 5). Just Michael Nesmith and Red Rhodes, live at The Roadhouse. Great stuff. Here's "Roll with the Flow" (only Mike Nesmith can use a word like didactic in a song and make it poetic Cool )

Keep on picking'!

Three very hard to find Buck Owens albums from 1974 with Jerry Brightman on steel:

Live At The Sydney Opera House

Live In New Zealand

Live In Japan

Ernest Tubb - Live in Seattle - 1965 - Buddy Charleton on steel. Two other future stars were in this band for this recording - Jack Greene and Cal Smith.

Jack Greene & Jeannie Seely - Live At The Grand Ole Opry - 1978 - Ron Elliott on steel.

Willie Nelson & Curtis Potter - Six Hours At Pedernales - 1994 - Buddy Emmons on steel.

Oh yeah, forgot these three!

Just a quick correction... the 'Redneck Jazz Explosion' albums were produced with "Danny Gatton" as the artist. If you are looking for these, that should help you find them easier. But yes, Buddy & Danny are like Charleton & Rhodes on steroids!

The live Tom Morrell one is great as well.

Very Happy

True Danny Gatton was an underrated but awesome guitarist. As was Buddy on his Steel Jazz album. "Still am in shock that the Jazzers for Quincy weren't that impressed with his ability" Damn they must be so Coltrane hot its crazy.
