This is a song I wrote called "Paris". I play rhythm guitar and the fuzz steel, Buddy E. plays steel (C6th), Terry Wedding on guitar, Raymond Blanchet-piano, David Smith on Bass and Bob Mater on drums: http://picosong.com/wFhhK/

Sounds great! Is Buddy using a Pitchrider or some kind of synth converter?

Thank you, Jim. That's a Korg unit that came out before the Pitchrider. I can't remember the model name.

Thank you, Fred. A 6/8 shift on the ending. An E9 song for you, Fred: http://picosong.com/wFAed/

Chris - Thanks again for posting all these find recordings. Can I ask what year this was cut?

I enjoyed Blues and Greens, Chris. Thanks for giving us a listen.

I'm always surprised at the range of things Mr. E played on. You never really know what to expect. This particular tributary in jazz is one that's familiar and comfortable to me. I dig hearing Buddy as a 'session player.' Smile

Thank you, Charlie.
Robert, "Greens & Blues" was cut in 1986 at Hilltop Studios, in Madison. The engineer was John Nicholson.
Here's Buddy from that session:

I'm pretty sure that is an MCI guitar Buddy's playing.

Sweet! Very lyrical playing. Thanks, Chris.

That pic of Buddy - for all our chatter about posture and proper arm positioning - is he deliberately doing everything wrong here just to show that even a slouch with crappy technique can sound great? Cool

Fine composition Chris. I enjoyed listening to both tunes. I also revisited your 2012 post with the photos of all those legends. Thanks for that too.

Since its Buddy, there is absolutely nothing wrong. In fact, he looks like he's having a wonderful time, and that's what it's all about, isn't it?

Yes, Fred, the fun. I've posted this picture before. When the first Batman movie came out, somebody on the Everly Brothers road crew got a hold of this cardboard promo thing and set it on Buddy's pac-a-seat, so when he arrived for soundcheck, this is what he saw. I think there was an inside joke that went along with it. Maybe something to do with something Buddy played. I don't know

This was at the South Shore Music Circus, in Massachusetts.
