If it's "The Return of Wayne Douglas" that'd be Tommy Detamore

I purchased the Doug Sahm, Rhino box set a few months back, and they list Charlie Owens as the player. Not sure if he's the same as who's on your album, but he played on several Doug Sahm albums, so could quite possibly be.

Bob, I've got that CD and it's forum member Tommy Detamore for sure. If I'm not mistaken, he also co-produced and served as recording engineer on the album. Our forum's own Bobby Flores also played some incredible fiddle on the album. Definately a great album with some awesome steel and fiddle! Maybe Tommy D. or Bobby F. will drop by and tell us a little more about it.

... and Bobby Flores' CD, "Just for the Record". I got to looking at the pile of CDs in my front seat the other day and realized that about half or more came from Tommy's studio. If you aren't hip to what's going on down there at Cherry Ridge, you're missing out on some good stuff.

I agree that this CD has a bunch of good steel playing on it!
I have two Zums that Tommy D. use to own - the one he used on this cd were a 1987 Zum.

Tommy D. and Bobby F. should make a C.D. of 4/4 shuffle tunes without a singer. Many of us are hungry for some real hard core Jimmy Day and Emmons 4/4 hard core shuffle songs!
Few bands today can get the bass or drum part right to the hard core 4/4 shuffle tunes. Seems like the drum and bass section of this type of tune is becoming a lost art. Of course the fiddle needs some Tommy Jackson influence. Just my opinioin.

Be sure to check out Tommy's work on Clay Blaker's CD's also.... These are full of Tommy's excellent steel guitar & guitar
playing, all the way through, and Clay's tunes are the best you're gonna hear anywhere.

Don't know where to get Clay's stuff nowadays, but to start with.

I have the last 3, and been trying to figure out how to get the re-issued one.
