The Steel Guitar Hall of Fame, a collection of instrumentals by some of the top country and western steel players, has a long history, beginning with the Starday label release from 1963 pictured above. It had 14 tracks.
The album surfaced again on a Starday subsidiary, Nashville, in 1968, but with the number of tracks cut to 10.
And finally the 10-track version was issued on CD and as a download in 2013, with different cover art.
One selection that appears on both versions of The Steel Guitar Hall of Fame is Tennessee Plowboy by Little Roy Wiggins (1926-1999), who played with Eddy Arnold in the late 1940s and early '50s. "Tennessee Plowboy" was a moniker bestowed on Arnold early in his career and this is Wiggins's tribute to him. The MP3 is taken from a cassette copy of the 1968 release.
Little Roy Wiggins recorded instrumentals for Starday, Dot and several smaller labels and later worked with such Grand Ole Opry acts as George Morgan, the Willis Brothers and Ernie Ashworth. In later years he operated a theater and music store in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
Here's a song from Twin Steel Guitars, an album Wiggins recorded in 1970 with Kayton Roberts, who was the steel player for Hank Snow's Rainbow Ranch Boys.
