The sound of Nashville nightlife, circa 1962! Steel guitar pioneer Pete Drake slides and glides through a glimpse of what Music City instro sounds were like mid-century—the kinds you might hear at any neon-draped honky tonk—including everything from sexy-swing to country-cool on a dozen original tunes, ranging from the playful swing of “For Pete’s Sake” to the honky tonk shuffle of “Loves I’ve Known” to the hip jazz menace of “The Spook,” and on through the hillbilly cosmic in the album closer, “Galaxie,” in which Drake trades licks with steel guitar legend, “Little” Roy Wiggins. Mastered from the original analog mono reels and pressed on red vinyl, Modern Harmonic brings this essential U.S. steel from Nashville to your record collection!
