Year: 1994

“He seems to have been born to be a cowboy singer. Gormans’ singing is perfect for the music: a smooth, down home voice that can stand beside that of Carl T. Sprague or any other cowboy singer.” -Dirty Linen Magazine.
With Skip Gorman (vocals, guitar, fiddles, mandolin, mandolin banjo) with Mary Burdette (acoustic bass), Jeff Davis (banjo, spoons), Gordon Peery (piano) , Stacy Phillips (dobro), Molly Stouten (harmony vocals), David Surette (bouzouki), and Ken Sweeney (harmonica).

 

“There is a powerful variety of cowboy music here. There are songs with roots in England; songs that predate the battle at the Alamo; nightherding songs; waltzes; love songs; homilies; sentimental classics. And Skip has written a few new tunes and a grand epic. These are songs with their chaps and boots on, sung and played by one of our very finest Cowboy singers.” Jeff Davis , Cambridge, MA

“Brilliant tapestries of the Old West… a most learned understanding of the romantic West, playing fiddle, mandolin, and singing with great verve and skill, without any hedging, I’d unreservedly name this as one my favorite cds of 1994, an album I’d walk barefoot over hot ashes to obtain.” Rock ‘n Reel Magazine, England

“…Masterful and flat-out gorgeous… Gorman’s voice is so real, so full of splintered sobs, soft gravel and high, whooping sustains… his yodeling is so fluid and easy that even the most ardent yodel foe is bound to sigh.” Scott Alarik, Boston Globe
