Speedy West-Steel Guitar Wizard


In the early 1950’s, Speedy West burst upon the scene with his crazy groundbreaking steel guitar sound. Along with guitarist Jimmy Bryant, the duo recorded a nice body of high quality work for Capitol Records, also appearing regularly on the Hometown Jamboree television show, and backing up Tennessee Ernie Ford on hits such as Sixteen Tons. If you’ve never heard Speedy West, hold on to your seat- you’re in for a real treat!
