Forrest Lee Jr and Friends - Higher To Go (tribute featuring Albert Lee, Johnny Hiland, Redd Volkaert and more)
A tribute to Country legend Forrest Lee Sr (1927-2009) featuring his gospel songs from 1968-1973.
"Among Forrest Lee Jr's buddies on this album are guitarslingers Albert Lee, Johnny Hiland, Redd Volkaert, and John Pettifer – often all trading licks and solos on the same song.
They’re swapping those leads with pedal-steel maestro Jay Dee Maness, who played with Gram Parsons and on the Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo, with Ray Stevens, Vince Gill (as one of the Buckaroos), and with the Desert Rose Band. And pianists Bobby Teesdale and Joe Lamont also add in their two cents.
The result is one of the hottest country guitar albums of the year."
