Eldon Shamblin sings

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Via Tyson Wynn, a wonderful clip of legendary western swing guitarist Eldon Shamblin playing and singing "Changes Made," following a bit of banter with steel guitarist Leon McAuliffe. This appears to be from a performance by The Original Texas Playboys (the drumset you'll see in the background is on display at Cain's Ballroom). According to YouTube user jsham66 (a relative of Eldon's?), the clip is circa 1986.

And, posted by the same user, here's the tribute video from Eldon Shamblin's 2006 induction into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame:

If you don't know much about him (or even if you do), you should read this tribute to "The Greatest Texas Playboy: Eldon Shamblin," by Buddy McPeters.

Hi Jim! Thanks for reposting my tribute to Eldon Shamblin - I appreciate that a lot. I thought I would let you know that the Oklahoma Hall of Fame induction video above from "jsham66" is indeed a Shamblin relative, it's James Shamblin of Dallas, TX who is Eldon's nephew. The link to the video of Eldon singing is a dead link but here is the url of a replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcAjVGubf_s

Thanks for your comment, Buddy. I enjoy your writing on texasplayboys.net.

I would love to see the rest of the performance where Eldon sang, if anyone has it on video.
