Well, by now, anybody bothering to read my posts may be fairly frustrated with my run-on sentences that have little or nothing to do with the respective musical offering. So I'll try to spare you here a bit and simply say, this album is one of those calls where it may have been best to leave it to posterity and free of the internet. But I found it in a record store in Florida and was more than a little intrigued to see "Little" Roy (I'm a complete sucker for great steel guitar) along with the well respected studio guitarist, Kelso Herston, and the next thing I know I had parted with ten bucks and was anxious to give a listen. Well, it's a disappointment overall I'm afraid. I had high hopes, ten dollars worth, but Roy does very "little" here to impress. While there are some moments for him and some of his cast, the playing is largely elevator fare with a generally regrettable vocal chorus that repeats the featured lines from many of these tunes. But I love the pedal steel / steel guitar so much, and this understandably being OOP and uncommitted to CD, I figured, what the heck, here you go. For once I won't apologize for the 128kb rip from this dated LP. Proceed with caution but maybe a few of these tunes will hit the spot. Roy sure can play, he just makes it hard to be sure on this one....

I make every effort to ensure that each recording is OOP and not in conflict with commercial recording sales. I do not accept donations or any considerations in return for my efforts on this blog other than welcoming individual comments. I will immediately remove any content that is reported to me as conflicting with copyright claims and do not want to violate any such restrictions. I have invested a great portion of my hard earned money in purchasing music by many different artists over the years and this blog hopes to only add to encouraging everyone else to do the same. Sharing otherwise unavailable material, I believe, will only help proliferate the value of quality music and the success of the respective artists.
