  • STRONG LIKE BULL...BUT SENSITIVE LIKE SQUIRREL
    STRONG LIKE BULL...BUT SENSITIVE LIKE SQUIRREL Half originals, half covers. Soulful! Joe Goldmark has released eight steel guitar albums, and he is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about the history of his instrument. With this latest CD, he brings us yet another spectacular release that includes both eclectic covers and strong original material. Ranging from classic R&B numbers ("These Arms of Mine") to country favorites ("Lonely Weekends"), Goldmark recreates the popular perception of this versatile instrument. His ongoing quest is to prove to the world that "the steel guitar can be used in all types of music with great results!"

  • ALL HAT, NO CATTLE ALL HAT, NO CATTLE
    Critically acclaimed. Joe is best known for taking the steel guitar out of a C&W setting, and instead using this awesome instrument to play pop, rock, and soul music. On this album he also ventures into World Music with tunes like "Highlife" & "Skokiaan" (African), "Rico's Lament" (Caribbean), & "Sabor A Mi" (Mexican). However he still can't resist rocking on "Eight Miles High" (The Byrds), "Her Strut" (Bob Seger), "The Way" (Fastball), and on "China Cat Sunflower" (Grateful Dead). He also mixes in some oldies like "Sweet Dreams" (Don Gibson), "Hey Girl" (Freddie Scott), "Whispering Pines" (The Band), and "Because They're Young" (Duane Eddy). Joe is backed by some wonderful players including Jim Campilongo And The 10 Gallon Cats, with whom he has also recorded two albums. If you like the idea of a pedal steel guitar playing some fun music, you'll love this album.

  • STEELIN' THE BEATLES STEELIN' THE BEATLES
    12 rocking Beatles tunes. ...updated to the pedal steel. Joe gives his treatment to a great selection of fab four numbers. The wonderful songs created by the Beatles sound like they were written for the pedal steel guitar on this rockin' CD, which also features the excellent playing of some great Bay Area talent. Engineer and guitarist Garth Webber is an alumnus of the Miles Davis band. Mac Cridlin played bass on Stephen Bishop's "On & On" and Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy", and was in Tony Williams' band. Billy Lee Lewis played drums with Marty Balin, Gary Potterton is a top country-rock guitarist, and Pete Elman on keyboards has three of his own highly acclaimed CDs.

  • THE GOLDMARK ROUND-UP "THE GOLDMARK ROUND-UP
    CD Reissue of the best of Joe's 3 LPs: "Pickin' My Pleasures", "Vertigo", and "Rockin' It". These 20 selections exemplifies Joe's unique melodic treatment of the pedal steel with 9 originals, and covers of songs by The Beatles, Elvis Costello, The Stylistics, Link Wray, and others. Takes the instrument beyond the strict C & W boundaries and into the realm of pop music.

  • ALL OVER THE ROAD "ALL OVER THE ROAD"
    Ground breaking music with tunes such as "Third Stone From the Sun", and "Peaches En Regalia". As the title of this release implies, Joe plays music that is not traditionally associated with the pedal steel guitar - great rock and soul tunes played by some of the best musicians in San Francisco. Pedal steel guitar fronts this wacky & well produced album of rock & soul faves. First CD by this virtuoso who has accompanied David Byrne, Michael Bloomfield, Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur & Norton Buffalo.
