R.I.P.: Elyse Steinman

Saying goodbye to Prince last night, now have to say farewell to the slyly inventive slide guitarist of one of my all-time fave stylistic mash-ups, Raging Slab:

From the debut.

 

PS: [April 4]: Sorting and storing and discarding vinyl this after noon I was reminded that the band Junkyard — esp. S/T debut (Geffen, 1989) was in most ways a West Coast equivalent of Raging Slab. Except it was made up of members from established previous bands and never had quite the lifetime-commitment vibe of Raging Slab. Indeed, I never liked anything else I heard by these guys as much as the debut. It should be played right along with Slab, though.
