Dunn Bob- (2CDS) Master Of The Electric Steel Guitar 1935-1950
[ Ojl1004 ]
Price: $28.00

One of the most important figures in western swing history, Bob Dunn was the first country musician to use an amplified instrument on a phonograph record. He performed with Milton Brown's Musical Brownies from 1934 until 1936 but then left to begin a nomadic career with a variety of Southwest string bands. This 2-CD set features 53 rare recordings featuring Dunn and also include, for the first time, unpublished family photographs.........................

"When Dunn solos, you don't hear the sweet and dulcet tones of the familiar pedal steel (which had not yet been invented), You hear a lurching, perpetually off-balance-sounding cascade of bent broken tones, raw trombonelike swoops and smears, advanced harmonic substitutions that occasionally make Dunn sound like a proto-bebopper, abrupt squeals of feedback, bell-like harmonics, and above all, a sense of delighted discovery and bemusement, as if the unlikely sounds coming out of Dunn's amp were startling him as much as his listeners." - Robert Palmer
