"I grew up watching "cowboy movies" with Roy Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers . . . Gene Autry . . . and so many more. And I listened to the songs . . . the songs that were the soundtrack to the movies . . . and so the soundtrack to my childhood memories.
No, not "kiddie songs" . . . but "cowboy songs" . . . songs of the west.
And one of the "folk singers" of my generation, "the Woodstock generation" must have grown up loving these same songs, because Arlo "Alice's Restaurant" Guthrie (Woody's son) has laid down twelve unforgettable tracks . . . and like a good "out west scout" i can easily follow these tracks to where they lead: a place that existed both "for real" and in my memory "fanatsies" as well: the American West.
Arlo jump-starts this cd with the rousing saloon-stepper "Buffalo Gals" . . . you just have to start singing along . . and mabe even dancing.
Then there are classics like: "Streets Of Laredo" . . . "Shennandoah" . . . "I Ride An Old Paint" . . . and the tear filled "Red River Valley".
Arlo has the perfect voice to deliver these songs with the feel of the real west. And his simple instrumentation, yet artistically sophisticated, underscores the lyrics and feel of these songs.
This album is a dream come true. If You love "the western" part of "country and western" music. you MUST get this cd. You will thank yourself for getting it . . . and you will thank Arlo for recording it.
Thank you Arlo Guthrie for all of your great music and recording over the years . . .and this "old buckaroo" says 'thank you' for recording these classic songs . . . and doing them just right! :)
(now over to the chuck-wagon and the camp-fire for some "vittles".) ha! :)"
Coming from Arlo, it was not a surprise

"Great CD. Not being an American I think the American public underestimate this guy. I just can't find anything in the shops. Thank God for amazon.com.
So, I wasn't surprised by it. It is a great CD. I never have enough of listening to it. I have got about seven of his CDs and I have to say this is one of the best. Of course, the songs are classics, but Arlo lends something to them that makes them legendary, sad and tangible. It almost makes you want to cry. Thanks amazon.com again for enabling me to purchase Arlo's CDs."
