Pedal steel legend John David Call, the man who co-founded PPL and brought his brilliance and PPL to the forefront of country rock, continues to perform his magic !!
At a few recent shows and again at last nights show , JD filled in for Fats Kaplin, who had a prior engagement. What a treat for fans to catch Craig and John once again doing what they started back in the late 60's in Waverly, Ohio where they both resided.

Since Fats Kaplin was unavailable, Mr. John David Call treated us to the steel that had us roaring from the 60's right through today. It was written in the 70's that "Call continues to raise the bar with his inventive, superb pedal steel..." . John put a match to that bar Friday night and jumped over it once more.
...
Donnie and John had this tune rockin' , outstanding !! Donnie sang lead on a number of tunes, all the Gill songs as well as the Curtis Wright song from ALL IN GOOD TIME, IF YOU SAY WHAT Iv¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢M THINKING.
...
John David Call ! My God, this guy put me in a time warp that I don't think I've left yet !! TEARS, KC SOUTHERN, TWO LANE HIGHWAY, all had the classic trademark pedal steel licks that catapulted PPL into the national music mainstream in the 70's and brought us here today. John continues to amaze and thrill audiences with the same brash approach to the pedal steel that had steel purists shaking their heads decades ago. " You just can't do that on the steel", " That's not the way it's meant to be played" are just a few of the many phrases thrown at John many years back. Fortunately for all of us, John chose to blaze his own trail. He was nothing short of magnificent Friday night, and it's even more amazing when you consider that he's only popped in sporadically with PPL the last few years. But what really got me going was what he did on the tunes that he never recorded with PPL: MISERY TRAIN, a song I've stated before I felt was often overlooked, blew the crowd away.
...
John turned this song into a monster Friday night, along with the superb lead guitar and vocals of Donnie LEE. These two carried on all night in the same tradition of Fuller-Call and later Goshorn-Call. And yet they've only performed together a few times ! SIX FEET OF SNOW ( an old Feat tune) was yet another song where John's riveting steel roared through the venue, the crowd clearly pumped up. Throughout the night, John displayed the creative touch we've come to love, from the inventive, melodic licks to the scorching ones which ripped right through you. He still flies on that thing and hits those high end notes with an amazing clarity like no one else. The chance to finally see this legend again provided all of us with a magical evening. Fuller- Call.
...
Mr. Call, in true Prairie Dog tradition, proceeded to treat us like we were all old friends, and then suggested that we go inside and say hi to the rest of the band, as well.
...
Last, but certainly not least, I got my first opportunity to experience the incredible John Call in person. He acts as though he's lucky that people will have him around! That's par for the course, for a group of really nice, and down to earth people. His playing? Unreal. So beautiful on the mellow songs, and hasn't lost a thing on his fastball.
...
John seems to be off somewhere else, not even aware of how great he's playing.
Anyway, I've gone on long enough. Thank you again, Tom for making it a special time, and thank you Craig, Rick, Donnie, "Stick", and John, for your incredible graciousness, and for putting on a whale of a show (two actually.) The only thing that could have topped it off, was if I could have been in Kentucky the next day.

Here are some priceless shots of John David Call, courtesy of fanzine.
They are from what several on here have mentioned, a show at Marietta College on March 20, 1977.
It was held in the student union, known as The Pit.
After John had to quit touring with PPL due to severe back problems, he played locally now and then. Here he's captured in one of those appearances.
