Subject: RE: Help: Ian and Slyvia collaborations

Bill Keith played pedal steel in Great Speckled Bird, the country-rock band that Ian & Slyvia organized, circa 1970. Jim Rooney was not a part of that. However, about 25 years later, Jim produced one of Ian's solo albums.

Rich R,

"David Rae" is indeed David Rea, Ian & Sylvia's longtime guitarist. It must have been a typo. I spent some time with David last month for the first time in about 25 years. He's still a great guitar player.

I heard from Tom Russell a few days ago. He was on his way to play some concerts in BC and Alberta and do some songwriting with Ian right after.
