This group are in no danger of being mistaken for Santo and Johnny. This is some of the worst lap steel I've ever heard. Thanks for sharing the bad example. I appreciate S&J all the more for this!
Super cool tune!
Was it lap steel or merely a rusty saw? Or maybe prehistoric synthesizer?The verification magic word seems appropriate for this tune: "shemook."

Maybe it's Harold Bradley,Orville "Red" Rhodes, or even Roy Smeck, who had some albums issued on ABC-Paramount at the time around 1958-1965. Smeck was a self-proclaimed "wizard of the strings" who could play every stringed or fretted instrument from the ukelele to the banjo; His best-known record was a 1942 release of "South Of The Border" on ARA Records.
