They Passed This Way: Junior Brown

      Junior Brown finally got his due in 1993 with the release of  his alt/country "Guit With It" album. Which was followed in 1995 by the ep. "Junior High" and in 1996 by the highly successful "Semi Crazy" album.  This run of success propelled Junior Brown onto the national scene after years of playing with bands like Santa Fe's Last Mile Ramblers and Texas swing legends Asleep at The Wheel.  Junior's other claim to fame is his instrument of choice, a standard stringed guitar coupled with a lap steel guitar, that he calls the "Guit Steel" Junior Brown was a key member of the Santa Fe/Cerrillos based  Last Mile Ramblers for almost three years.  He was featured on their rare 1974 album "While They Last", leaving shortly before they recorded their second album "LMR" in 1977.
