Allll-righty! something a newcomer can illuminate, I'm holding the CD right here by Tom Russell, "Song of the West" , 1997 byHMG/HighTone records. (www.hightone.com) FYI this disc includes other gems you may have heard on alternative radio; Gallo Del Cielo, Claude Dallas, El Llano Estacado, Navajo Rug (written by Ian Tyson, didja know, not Jerry Jeff Walker as some think...)
If I ever found a Tom Russell site I didn't bookmark it. I found music and lyrics to some Russell tunes on Tabs Planet but didn't archive this particular song. Here's a URL (hey I'm new don't ask ME to create a blue clicky) you can copy to your browser to get right to Gallo Del Cielo which would put you in the hood:
If you can't turn up the lyrics to TSA,TMB bribe me on PM and maybe I would input them to you off the liner notes... And here's URL to Internet Cowboy, an Ian Tyson site with info on him + other Canadian "cowboy" musicians - I didn't even know of this acknowledged genre until a bit over a year ago, and was surprised how many Tyson songs have been made (more?) popular by artists covering them... say la vee, nyet?
now let your fingers do the walking,
hasta cerveza, michael
