Perhaps the greatest pedal steel guitarist of all time, Jimmy Day worked countless sessions and played on the road with Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Jim Reeves, Lefty Frizzell, Ray Price, and Willie Nelson. In 1961 and 1962 he recorded two incredibly rare steel guitar albums for Philips Records, "Golden Steel Guitar Hits" and "Steel And Strings". On them, he tackled 24 songs that feature his beautiful tone, dazzling technique, and bottomless fund of ideas. The titles include Steel Guitar Rag, Panhandle Rag, Remington Ride, B. Bowman Hop, Bootheel Drag, Steelin' The Blues, Wild Side Of Life, and Texas Playboy Rag. Day, who was inducted into the International Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 1982, continued to perform around Texas. He also played selected dates with Ray Price, until his death on January 22, 1999.
