New Review Mike Gross Rusted Spurs West - Tumbleweeds and Old Horses"

This very enjoyable new CD features 14 varied tunes from multiple fields of music by three talented musicians, all heard on vocal. Tex Hamel plays acoustic and lap steel guitar. Patti Hamel is heard playing accordion and Bob (Slim) plays bass.


The opening song is the Johnny Bond classic, Cimarron. That is followed by a wonderful version of Laurie Lewis' memory, Texas Bluebonnets. Western gems include Bob Nolan's magnificent Tumbling Tumbleweeds from the Sons of the Pioneers, from the public domain, I Ride an Old Paint, and from the Girls of the Golden West, My Love is a Rider. The group also brings back some more recent items such as Steve Earle's Hometown Blues, Be Here to Love Me from Townes Van Zandt and from Almost Perfect Stranger, So Long Arizona. There are also Western Swing gems from the great Bob Wills hit parade, Cindy Walker's Miss Molly and It's All Your Fault and Bob's own Take Me Back to Tulsa. Another gem that is brought back this time from Ella Mae Morse is Cow Cow Boogie. There is some really nice steel work by Tex on this one. Dark Hollow comes from Bill Browning and bluegrass and the album closes from the great Patsy Montana library with Cowboy Sweetheart.


This album is available for $15 plus $2 shipping from Bob Denoncourt, 24360 E. Cholla Rd., Florence, AZ 85132
