random notes

     From: Ed Flinn (flinn@redwood.birdhouse)
But maybe you say "What do I care about brassy Norwegians playing an oddly familiar arrangement of Dog/Meat?  Where can _I_ find a more domestic form of peripheral entertainment?"

Perhaps the unique version of Peaches en Regalia presented on Joe Goldmark's "All Over the Road" (Lo-Ball 6) would better serve.  Mr. Goldmark plays pedal steel guitar.  I haven't enough experience to judge whether he's a particularly good pedal steel player or not, but it's not a wretched interpretation of the song.  I can't quite forget, tho, just _why_ the dancing bear is a wonder.

The album title is intended to convey the breadth of the origins of the various selections here, including a couple of Steely Dan songs, Edgar Winter, Elton John, and the theme from "Route 66."

Oh, and some originals.

The notes say "The pedal steel, with its guitar-like attack, organ style sustain, and pleasing chord changes, provides the perfect vehicle for interpreting a melody.  Many tunes work as steel guitar instrumentals, even if they're not country.  I try to play with feeling and expression (as God intended!), but I like to expand the boundaries."
