Truly western music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a Willy Nelson, or a Tracy Nelson fan, you should know Mary McCaslin. She sings in an unaffected folk manner, and she is witty, to boot. This album personifies what the girl the cowboy is waving to on the cover of Quicksilver's "Happy Trails" album would sing on her front porch swing. The beautiful "Cole Younger" piece haunts like Emmylou's "Pancho and Lefty", but is less refined and more gritty, "campfirey"(if that's a word), and sung in a very persuasive first person. This is a fun album, especially if you toss into a shuffle play mix on the CD changer with Riders in the Sky, Bob Wills, and Willy Nelson. Enjoy!"
Haunting lyrics, memorable melody

"I first became aware of Mary McCaslin after hearing "The Last Cannonball" on another CD. Her melancholy story of riding "The Last Cannonball" was an immediate favorite. Much to my surprise, I found her other performances on this CD to be equally compelling. If you like songs about the west, ballads with just the right mixture of folk and country, or superb background guitar work, you will like this CD. Turn up the volume to get a full appreciation of all of the background nuances. Several of these songs will raise goosebumps on your spine, and at least one will have you blinking back a tear or two. Extraordinarily fine folk music from a very talented performer!"
