CD Reviews

This album offers a real taste of cowboy music.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first Michael Martin Murphy album I purchased. The songs on this album cover a wide spectrum of cowboy songs, real Western music which is distinctly different from Country music. Some of the songs evoke real deep emotions, the kind that a cowboy would experience whether he was alone on the trail, riding a cattledrive or in a frontier town where anything could happen. The album contains a lot of favourites like Tumbling Tumbleweeds and Happy Trails. It has a few that have become favourites. There are a couple that will make you laugh like Cowboy Logic and especially Where Do Cowboys Go When They Die/Reincarnation. Murphy is accompanied by many well know artists and the album insert has a small writeup on each song revealing some very interesting information about the songs development and history. Murphy has a easy listening quality to his music and has given me reason to buy three of his other albums. Cowboy Songs III, Cowboy Songs IV and Sagebrush Symphony. I am currently looking for his Christmas album which is Cowboy Songs II. I've learned that there is a lot more to Michael Martin Murphy since I first heard Wildfire back in the 70's and I would recommend his music to anyone who appreciates the real music of the west."
A career defining album and reinvention

"Murphey has always been a cowboy...his second solo album was titled based on his classic song "Cosmic Cowboy." But early in his career his cosmic cowboy persona was a modernizing of the cowboy myth, a guy as he said could work cattle in the day and discuss philosophy in the night. This album was a return to his western roots, a tribute to the cowboy myth. And a very effective tribute it is. A mix of new songs celebrating the cowboy lifestyle and traditional cowboy songs, the album is very effective and is not only a highlight of Murphey's career but a good introduction to western songs. The booklet is almost scholarly in it's description of the history of the traditional songs. However, it is not dry, but a very entertaining and detailed filled stories behind the songs. Very highly recommended."
