A Great Big Western Howdy!

A Great Big Western Howdy!

by Riders in the Sky



On the big scale you can call this album Western music, but on individual cuts it throws you some curveballs. It has harmonies and rhythms reminiscent of the Sons of the Pioneers, and it also has stretches of country -- and they sure can yodel. With the Irish-flavored "Sidekick Jig," and the beautiful "A Border Romance," and "One More Ride" being main highlights, Great Big Western Howdy! covers wide territory. Fine vocals are contributed by everyone, but enhanced by the addition of Marty Stuart's cowbilly voice. There is also some of the finest three-part yodeling to be heard. Then, as if this isn't enough, there is the absolutely smoking mandolin break contributed by Stuart, after a fine fiddle break contributed by Woody Paul. This is a great release for one and all.
