Some of the very best include The Older I Get, the Better I Was by Mudcat's own Art Thieme. Here is his Discography. If you can find one that has Blue Mountain on it, be sure to listen to it whilst in Utah. Another favourite of mine is his "Cowboy's Barbara Allen," learned from an old cowpoke in a bar in Cheyenne, WY.
There are also some of his works available at Folk Legacy Records co-owned by late Mudcatter Sandy Paton's wife, Caroline Paton, and family. The link includes a song about "Zack the Mormon Engineer."
Art's picking, delivery, easy to listen to voice and great mix of songs are a delight and will have you singing along the way. VERY enjoyable.
Not coming through Western Colorado are you?
