Thanks guys, that's really helpful. Any specific Dwight Yoakam? OR Vince Gill?
+1 the song "Ooh Las Vegas" will blow you away
Also check out James Burton with Emmylou Harris on the album "Elite Hotel"
+100000 on the first Paul Butterfield album
and the Booker T....man, you have some darn good taste
The Bill Withers album "Just As I Am" has Booker T playing some sweet tele stuff himself.
The Dwight Yokam stuff with Pete Anderson is some of the best modern tele type stuff.
A great place to see Burton in action is the DVD
Elvis: That's the Way It Is (1970).
The band is hot, the music's great and Burton
and Presley are in top form.
Some of these are abit more diverse than those suggested- what sort of music are you looking for? That's quite a large time span! These are the obvious ones (for me) with dominant tele usage.
The eighties in particular was very diverse- probably why you're abit lost with it- there was metal, glam, punk, new-wave, inde (pretty much any indie music is either a tele- a strat or a ricky)- thats just popular british music, and a tele was pretty much always used somewhere!
Radiohead- OK computer (or any other radiohead album- but this is the best to start)
The Police- Reggatta de Blanc (or any other)
The Clash- london calling
Jeff Buckly- Grace
Jeff Beck- Having a Rave-Up with The Yardbirds (or other early beck)
Block Party- Silent Alarm
Pink floyd- animals (or any syd barret or early gilmour stuff)
Led zeppelin- early albums (and the solo on stairway to heaven)
Good stuff on 5th gear, personal favourite is probably Mud on the Tires though. Or even his new instrumental album Play.
go for the lot in fact!
Great CD's from http://www.cdbaby.com
Forrest Lee Jr: Telethon
Matt Rae: Tele-Pathic
Michael Hawley: Tele Talk
Darrell Toney & Friends: Jerry Reed...Revisited
Among Darrell Toney's friends is Brent Mason, who delivers several blistering solos on that album.
The Band "Rock Of Ages"
Another +10,000 for Bill Hullets "Two-Lane Blacktop"!!
Other of my Fav's -
Arlen Roth's Landscape is a killer tele CD.
Matt RAe - High Strung
anything by Redd Volkaert
...what I would like to add to the list:
Jim Weider: "Bigfoot" and "Remedy"
Arlen Roth: "Toolin' Around" and "Toolin' Around Woodstock"
Danny Gatton: "Cruisin' Deuces"
What? Did you guys forget about Dan Baird's "Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired"? You have to at least listen to it once.
Last Chance for a Thousand Years is a great Dwight album - it's a compilation of many of his hits and Pete Anderson is prominently featured on them. Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. would be a good choice also, as would Hillbilly Deluxe.
for pete anderson, i'd go for buenos noches from a lonely room or the aforementioned guitars,cadillacs, etc.- for james burton, the first two emmylou harris albums are great- alan jackson's here in the real world has brent mason on it, i think-
graham coxon: love travels at illegal speeds
blur: 13, self titled
nick cave: dig lazarus, dig!
My favourite all Tele album is:
Jason & the Scorchers - Midnight Roads and STages Seen.
A live Country Rock album with a Tele through a 4x12 cab just roaring. That's what I'm talkin' about.
