A pair of rare later moments from Sand
y Bull – the revolutionary guitarist who made some amazing records in the 60s! Steel Tears is from the mid 90s – a record that has Sand
y Bull very firmly established in the Nashville scene, after making his big early waves on the west coast. The record is completely different than before – not long instrumental songs with plenty of effects, and instead these shorter, tighter tunes that feature lead vocals from Sand
y alongside his guitar, banjo, and pedal steel. Most of the tracks have a small group of friends – and there's a nicely intimate feel to the record, which keeps these straighter country songs from ever sounding too commercial. Titles include "Arabalabama", "I Don't Care", "Can I Get A Witness", "Sideshow", "Steel Tears", and "It Should Be Easier Now". Endventions & Tributes is an album of previously-unreleased tracks – material that sometimes recalls the sound of Sand
y Bull's earlier years, with some elements of Eastern music and trippier guitar coming into the mix. Titles include "Nagra Sarod (take 1)", "Rhumba", "Strat 1", "Love Is Forever", "Jesse James Jam", "Sand
y's Last Word", and "Nagra Guitar (take 1)".
