Bo Dud and Freddie Roulette

With all the attention on sacred steel players and their progeny like Robert Randolph, Freddie Roulette's contributions that date nearly fifty years old are sometimes overlooked for lap steel playing. Here he was at the Ponderosa Stomp backing Bo Dud(ley) who he played steel guitar on "Shotgun Rider."

Here is "Shotgun Rider"with some mind-blowing steel guitar.

Here is a track from a terrific album by Freddie with the late Willie Kent that came out a number of years ago. A follow-up album of more strong blues was recorded but the label never issued it.
