Synopsis

Amazon.com
The over-the-top comedic style of Robin Williams lends this Rabbit Ears tale high energy and hilarity. Williams, a master of many voices, twists and twangs through the wild, wild West as the legendary Pecos Bill, who, raised by coyotes, becomes the quintessential cowboy on his mustang, Widow Maker. The larger-than-life Bill befriends and amazes the other riders on the range, organizes the first-ever cattle drive, and rides a cyclone across the West, creating the Great Salt Lake in the process. Ry Cooder, who had a hand in scoring Paris, Texas and pulling together the classic Cuban Buena Vista Social Club extravaganza, provides a fun Western soundtrack. Kids of all ages will enjoy Pecos Bill and are bound to try affecting Williams's vocal tricks as John Wayne, a wild cougar, and any number of high-spirited cowboys. This CD is a rooty-tootin', belly-laughin' kick in the pants. --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Williams and Cooder combine for a good yarn
Steven Lynch | Chapel Hill, Tennessee USA | 04/07/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Robin Williams and Ry Cooder collaborate for an enjoyable rendition of the Tall Tale of Pecos Bill. My little boy who's 2 1/2 enjoys the howling of the coyote-raised Bill and Mom and Dad haven't tired of hearing it even after the 30th play with Williams humorous tone. Cooder's music sets a fine West Texas tone (if dry dusty brush covered land has a tone). Kids learn by repetition, and since our little one is learning to converse its a good purchase for us since we can listen over and over again. If Mr. Williams sees this, my son approves of this CD with all the howl a little boy can muster, AWOOOWOWWOOWWW!"
