Alvino Rey, "Sleepytown Train" 1942

Got a real fun treat for today.  Alvino Rey was a guitarist and bandleader with an innovative bent.  Thirty years before Peter Frampton was blowing our minds talking through his guitar, Rey devised a way to modulate the sound of his pedal steel with vocals.  A few of his recordings from this period demonstrate the new technique, but none more wildly than this live recording from 1942.  Enjoy!
