Lost Herd not one of his best
Elaine Priday | 03/29/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I really like Ian Tyson -- when he's good, he absolutely wonderful. However, I don't want to listen to songs I don't like seven or eight times before I can tolerate them. I want songs that touch my heart and soul first time out. I like real country with steel guitars and fiddles, not the stuff they're calling country now (which certainly isn't country and isn't even good rock and roll). In my opinion, there are two good songs on this CD, La Primara and Elko Blues. If you like Ian Tyson and want some really good songs, try "I Outgrew the Wagon" -- Steeldust Line is such a wonderful 'story' song! The only song I didn't like on this CD was one he didn't write himself! Or try "Cowboyography" -- 'Navajo Rug,' 'Summer Wages,' Fifty Years Ago,' (this song brought tears to my eyes the first 30 times I listened to it -- not because it's too sad, but because it's just so beautiful!) 'Rockies Turn Rose,' Own Heart's Delight,' and more. And "Old Corrals and Sagebrush" is wonderful too. The title song will grab you the first time you hear it. And there are some great traditional oldies on it.
Those are the three CD's I have now that I think are great, much better than "Lost Herd.""

"Ian Tyson is definitely a "one of a kind" story-teller. His music is not only hauntingly beautiful, and his voice is not only rich and resonant, but the words to his unexcelled music really hit the meaningful targets of the west-- the Cowboy, the Indian and the Terrain. Having grown up in Canada and Alaska, and having met Mr. Tyson a long time ago in Medicine Hat, Alberta, truly, Lost Herd is a masterpiece. Additionally, I have never liked the "worn-out" song: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," however, you are in for a very unexpected surprise when you hear his performance. Country-western music covers a lot of basis, but much like the incomparable Harry Chapin--America's Storyteller, Mr. Ian Tyson holds that title with honour in Canada as, "Canada's Storyteller.""

"This is an amazing CD of Ian Tysons. I absolutley love the haunting saxophone in "Summers Gone" and other wonderful ballads. This is my favourite CD and gives a more personal look into Ian's songs, and the soul of cowboy life. This CD is a must have for any Ian Tyson fan and rings with the true sincerity and compassion of all Ian's other recordings."
