CD Reviews

The Best in the West!
12/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a RITS fan for years and heartily recommend them to everyone. They are not "just" a cowboy band, but excellent musicians and overall entertainers (even better in person than on CD). The tunes on this CD show a wide range of flavors from jazzy ("Sands of Texas") to the always great cowboy tunes ("Riding Down the Canyon", one of my favorites). Give them a listen, you will not be sorry. Check out their website!"
Simply Wonderful!

"Better than ever Gene Autry favorites updated and beautifully done by the melodic, sing along, Riders in the Sky. Gene would be thrilled, in fact he was when the Riders performed these songs for him after recording the album. He just smiled and sang along to all the tunes (liner notes). Back in the Saddle Again, and Souix City Sue are real standouts. I just wish the Riders would do Volume 2 of Gene Autry."
Great cd
