Modern Harmonic is proud to have begun its exploration of the vast and eccentric Starday catalog with a triple decker of classic steel guitar instrumental long players.

Longtime Eddy Arnold sideman “Little” Roy Wiggins explores the Hawaiian roots of the steel guitar through an album worth of island-influenced tunes, steel guitar pioneer Leon McAuliff brings his classic musical direction and accompaniment to a slate of Western swing classics, and steel guitar innovator Pete Drake throws off sparks with a dozen dazzling self-written instrumentals. Remastered from the original analog mono master tapes and pressed on colored vinyl, three platters of essential U.S. steel that only Modern Harmonic can deliver!
