“The JET Age”   Features the “speedpicking” of Julian E. Tharpe on Steel Guitar.   Midland Records.   This was recorded at the Johnny Cash Studio in Hendersonville, TN.   The Alabama Steel Guitar Association inducted Julian Tharpe into The Alabama Steel Guitar Association Hall Of Fame on February 26th, 2006 at The Hank Williams Museum, Montgomery Al.     But it’s the crazy, DIY art on this relic from the early Seventies that speaks to me.
