The Dan Canyon Band – Purple Sage (And Other Tales From The Plateau)

Admitted outriders of the Western genre, the Dan Canyon Band continues to follow their avowed mission to push things further along, musically speaking.

The band’s album offering from last year gave us a look into where they want to go, and the new one once again features thoughtful lyrics and colorful Western imagery from songwriter Dennis Coile placed in somewhat “Rockier” terrain than some Western purists might be expecting. Overall, I’m along for the ride. The beat I buy, the fuzz guitar I buy. For my ear, though, the jury is still out on the preferred vocal filtering used on many of the tracks. It strikes me as not taking the material anywhere but….“there.” Pick tracks include “Dreams Out Here Are Never Wasted,” a saga song with a surprise ending “Ride Hard (For The Hills,” “Strawberry Roan” (not the Fletcher classic) and “If I Could Love A Girl” (with its poetic recitation). I would add the good retro-style Fred Moore co-write “Ridin’ The Range Tonight” except for that filtering!




For the value of the words in particular, I do recommend it! Eight tracks total.
