Trying to figure out who played the pedal steel on this album. Was it Clarence White?
We were having a discussion in another thread about some of the solos and we were wondering.

Not Clarence White. But Clarence did use a string bender that could at times sound like a pedal steel. Probably Sneaky Pete.

Yeah, if it’s a pedal steel, it is probably Sneaky Pete

But if it is a guitar, I would say Clarence White for the reasons you stated. And which is why I said what I said here (on the other thread):

The album cover doesn’t mention anything about a pedal steel but it does mention Clarence White as one of the guitar players (but doesn’t specify which songs and such) so I am gonna go with Clarence White. I remember listening to Sneaky Pete Kleinow on pedal steel, and man, it was like the wind......…

Hey Arlo,
I'm a session musician/composer in Nashville who was heavily influenced/inspired by your albums, particularly "Running Down the Road", "Hobo's Lullabye", and "Last of the Brooklyn Cowboys". I've always wondered about your version of Pete Seeger's "Living In The Country." What is the muted, plucked instrument that starts the song, playing the main melody with a three-finger-type picking pattern? And who played it? (I'm guessing Ry Cooder?) And what is the higher, mandolin-type instrument that enters at :52? (Might be Ry Cooder on mando, but it sounds like it sustains much longer than a mando.) Both are beautiful instruments and I regret I've never heard them on other recordings!

We met a few times many years ago and I told you that you inspired me to become a musician. As I remember, you replied, "There's another life I've ruined!"

Thanks again, it's been a great life and I did just fine. Enjoy your retirement!
