Old Corrals and Sagebrush
Been catching up with country and western music since I turned 40 and it looks like I may just never catch up at all. Growing up some in Motherfucking, Alberta and spending many of my young boy summers in the country right here in B.C. turned me off C&W. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing and there were no alternatives to old time country and western music in those places then.
Got to it 32 tears late but this weekend I got to listen to Ian Tyson's "Old Corrals and Sagebrush." All sung under the big sky of Canada. I am not going to try and describe it any further than that. If you like cowboy music or if you are getting old and adventuresome enough to give it a try search this record out. It just might be the best fucking thing you ever heard.
Copy I have is on cassette and was released by Stony Plain Recording. Hitching Post Supply (I am not making this up) will be happy to supply you with a cd or two of Tyson's should you wish to contact them about making a purchase.
