Though My Path Is Planned, It's Not Rehearsed
Previous country-rock albums I've posted have gone down well (and believe me I'd love to post 'Too Stuffed To Jump' but it's available from Amazon - GO BUY...) so here's a bit of a rarity I think.
From the musicians behind the first 3 Mike Nesmith albums (go buy them as well please - for less than twenty quid you can get the first six albums on 3 CDs).
O.J. 'Red' Rhodes was one of the two or three *great* pedal steel players alongside Sneeky Pete, and - arguably - Garcia. And because of that he did a lot of sessions. Just take a look at some of the great albums that this guy played on - all the Nesmith albums up to The Prison (including the magnificent 'And The Hits Just Keep On Coming' which was just the two of them), Notorious Byrd Brothers, The Wolfking Of LA, Sweet Baby James, Valley Hi, L.A. Turnaround, Diamonds & Rust, the list goes on.
This is the only album of his that I have, though apparently there are others. I've no idea how representative this one is. It's real sweet, though. Lovely bass playing, too, right up in the mix where it oughta be (listen to Lunar Nova...sweet...)
Sorry about the crackles & surface noise, I've had this album a long time & used to play it a heck of a lot). Q: Does anyone have any of his other albums they'd be willing to rip for me?
