If you guys/gals have never heard Japancakes I urge you to check them out. Fantastic instrumental group from Athens that use pedal steel, drums, cello, keys & guitar to create very soothing tunes. I really can't compare them to anyone offhand. I really like their Belmondo album a lot. They have 2 brand new albums out right now one of which is an entire cover album of My Bloody Valentine's album Loveless. BJ Cole is another killer player. For something WAY off the beaten path I recommend the album he did with electronic weirdo Luke Vibert titled Stop The Panic. Crazy drum 'n' bass/sampledelica with BJ's awesome pedal steel over the top. Sounds like it wouldn't work but it does.
You are prolly thinkin of Leon McAuliff of "steel guitar rag" fame. Noel Boggs, "here's herbie" Remington are among the gruop of about 600 musicians who played with Bob

The 2nd self titled "Asleep at the Wheel" album is one of my favorites for pedal steel.
If you like that pick up their 1st album and maybe the 3rd.
Same player for the first 5-6 albums, I think, but I lost interest after their second LP.
Saw them in a bar (Gabe & Walkers) in 1974-1975 and then picked up the 1st two albums.
