Andy Hedges - Roll On Cowboys (2-CD set)
Cover CD Andy Hedges-Roll On Cowboys
Like his late friend Don Edwards, Andy Hedges is a preservationist when it comes to origins of Western Music and Cowboy culture. His releases are important and noteworthy for their quality. But this one may go all the way to “Landmark!” Drawn from episodes of Hedges’ increasingly popular podcast “Cowboy Crossroads,” the people guesting here share his zeal for keeping the past alive and relevant. An exceptional, annotated booklet is included that not only offers histories of these songs, but also histories of some of the specific instruments used to render them! Finally we get to hear an expanded treatment of “Dodgin’ Joe,” the song fragment that first sent Jack Thorp on his collecting quest! We experience vintage treatments of the real stuff, about as “campfire” as it gets. Words fail!!
Beyond very highly recommended, this double CD set is a must-own!! Twenty-two amazing tracks.
