The Left Coast Band was a blues trio that played Saturday nights at the Union Hotel Bar in Occidental, California in the 1990s (and nowhere else). These recently discovered recordings are from a mono cassette made on December 11, 1993.
- Sandy Nelson, vocals, upright piano
- Bobby Lee, pedal steel, occasional vocals
- Dan Smith, electric bass, tambourine (“Joe the Toe”), harmony vocals
Influenced by south the south Asian steel guitar style, this recording has a tabla loop, 3 steel guitar tracks and some ambient road noise from a drive to Point Reyes. If you have 11 minutes to spare, put on your phones, close your eyes and enjoy the trip.
