Norton Buffalo, who died of cancer in October 2009, played on hundreds of albums and everybody he played with thought of him as a friend; from the Doobie Brothers and Bonnie Raitt to Roy Rogers and Steve Miller, whose demo of Buffalo’s “Desert Highway” is heard in public for the first time.
Hit records by Joe South, Box Tops, Stevie Wonder, Steve Miller, Steely Dan all had the Coral Electric Sitar in common. This electric sitar was manufactured in the late 60’s. Even long after Danelectro stopped making this wonderful instrument, it was an integral part of many great recordings.
From the forthcoming DVD special feature to his new video release, Steve Miller takes a cab ride around his old stomping grounds and recalls the glory days of Chicago blues.
