Pete Drake – Forever

This video and song nearly seem staged in the present trying to appear as though it were shot in late 50’s. But the truth of the matter is that this clip of Pete Drake playing the song, “Forever” off his 1959 self-titled album,  is so far ahead of its time it still sounds extremely fresh and futuristic today. Guy basically invented the vocoder for chrissakes…and applied it to a slide guitar? Easily one of the most strangely alluring and immediately infectious songs I’ve ever come across. I highly recommend tracking down his full album Forever. You’ve most likely heard his slide guitar work all over the place such as on George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” and Dylan’s “Nashville Skyline.”
