‘Memories of Steel' ~
Bobby Estes & Billy Cooper
Here is a collection of songs that we feel
will stir many emotions within you. There are classic
country favorites, gospel songs, vocals and instrumentals,
all of which feature the pedal steel.
"I had no idea that this CD would
be the outcome when Billy Cooper asked me to sing a few
songs for a steel guitar course that he was preparing.
Billy and I played in a band together for many years and
in my opinion, there is none better on the pedal steel.
As we got farther into the session I realized that the
songs we picked just naturally seemed to reflect the
time periods of our lives. The title "Memories of Steel"
is meant to express the significance of the chosen songs
and mutual regard the two of us have.
I want to thank Billy and Wanda for
all the hard work they have put into this project. But
most of all, I want thank my Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ, for the grace and mercy He has shown to me!"

"It was in a small
club in Virginia in the mid-sixties that I first heard
Bobby Estes perform. From the very first I was impressed
with his singing. Years later, I felt privileged to be
able to work regularly with him in a group. A mutual
friend, Rudy Gabriletto, once told me that to play steel
guitar behind Bobby Estes was like being in Paradise. I
could not say it any better. Thanks, Bobby, for sharing
your talent and for being such a good friend and brother
