Synopsis

Amazon.com
Michael Martin Murphey rides at the front of the current Western music revival. As founder of Warner Western Records and originator of the popular West Fest concert series, the one-time pop star has done more than anyone in the '90s to bring greater attention to traditional Western music. With Cowboy Songs Four, the latest installment in a theme-album series that started in 1990, Murphey launches a new venture, WestFest Records. Over the album's 15 songs, Murphey regains his stature as a consummate singer of romantic Western ballads and story songs that explore the cowboy lifestyle. He also enlivens the album with a few Western-leaning pop songs, including a fine duet with Lyle Lovett on "Farther Down the Line." -- Michael McCall

Very Good, But Quite A Departure From Cowboy Songs 3
Mark | San Francisco, CA | 01/15/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album has a very different sound from his other Cowboy Songs Series. Not that it is bad but be prepared for a more "pop" sound on some of the songs, especially "Born To Buck Bad Luck" which is not really a true MMM cowboy song. I really think this album is good never the less. "Born To Be A Cowboy" is a classic while "Utah Carroll" is true to the traditional sound. "The Bunkhouse Orchestra" is a "square dance" type song that reminises "The Cowboy Christmas Ball" from his "Cowboy Christmas Album". I highly recommend this along with his even better album, "Cowboy Songs 3"."
The best song on this album is Born To Be a Cowboy, song #3

"The best song on this album is song #3, Born To Be a Cowboy! (but, it's not on your song list) It was written by a true working cowboy and fellow NM singing buddy of Michael's, R.W. Hampton. It's great traveling music, dance music, and it sums up how most of us cowboys feel when we think of all those good memories. Michael has come along way from his rock and folk roots, it seems he understands a cowboy's heart."
