Michael Hedges: Strings of Steel

Strings of Steel1993, Windham Hill WD-1136

A compilation created for release only in South America to accompany a tour there, this 1993 retrospective includes selections from Michael's Windham Hill albums through 1993 (both instrumental and vocal), plus three previously unreleased covers*: a live recording of "Gimme Shelter," a tongue-in-cheek live rendition of the Fine Young Cannibals' hit "She Drives Me Crazy," and a studio version of The Who's "Pinball Wizard."

An abbreviation in parentheses following a song title represents the album on which the song originally appeared.
