Ian Tyson has dropped below my radar since his Ian and Sylvia days on Vanguard Records. I've got a feeling that I should be listening to his music. Where would you suggest I get started? Are any of his recordings "unplugged" so to speak? I prefer minimal production values whenever possible. I'd prefer a few acoustic intruments over a full band treatment anyday. Do any of his recording fit that description?

Wesley,

Go to Amazon.com (there is a link at the mudcat home page) and search for Ian Tyson. He has quite a few albums/CD's. I do not know the content of any of them, but it would be a good place to start. There are reviews that might help you with the content. P.S. If you order through the Mudcat link, the Mudcat gets a small cut of any purchase you make.

He has a website at www.iantyson.com

He has not been as publicized as Gordon Lightfoot, but he has more of the Canadian plains cowboy in him and in his music. I cannot imagine him getting caught up in the overdone studio-driven sound.

Hi, Wesley -
Yes, you've missed some good music. Take a trip to Ian's Website, http://www.iantyson.com/, to see what he's been doing.
Since he split from Sylvia, Ian Tyson has written and recorded a lot of cowboy songs - not traditional cowboy songs, but good songs that are in a traditional style. I think you'll like them.

-Joe-

The most acoustic record from his "goodn's" is "Old Corrals and Sagebrush" which has a lot of nice "doghouse bass" work.

Everything he did since "One Jump Ahead of the Devil" is worth owning.

I have had good luck loaning people "Eighteen Inches of Rain" which may be his most accessible effort, at least to the general Country Music public, although one person I loaned it to couldn't get past the "yodeling" on the first song.

"I Outgrew the Wagon" is recorded in Canada and has a nice acoustic guitar player, but most of his work is really straight Country. It just happens to be of superior quality and good taste.

For me, the title and the music on Cowboyography sum up what Ian Tyson is all about.

For me, Ole Ian is "da man" when it comes to Western music -- not C & W like they make today but WESTERN meaning COWBOY music. He is the only artist in any performance field that I've joined a fan club for.

Although "18 Inches of Rain" is probably his most "produced" album since he recorded it in Nashville and there are some studio musicians instead of his cadre of Canadian friends playing the accent instruments, e.g., fiddle, I like it best of all the albums. I think the somewhat eclectic mix of musical styles and subjects include some of his best material. Heck it don't get no better than "MC Horses"! Second to me is probably his somewhat long album "Old Corrals and Sagebrush and Other Cowboy Culture Classics" probably because it's a mix of his material and traditional or otherwise old cowboys songs. His last album "Songs from the Gravel Road" is probably my least favorite since he gets a bit away from the cowboy style and throws in a little jazz. "One Jump Ahead of the Devil" was sort of the culminating effort in his brief foray into country-rock. Although the material on that one isn't bad, I didn't care for the sound mix and other production touches; to me it sounds muddy on most every song.

I think I now have everything Ian has ever done except possibly a couple of the special issue collections that are nothing more that mixes of material from the other albums. That includes all Ian and Sylvia and Ian solo. When I occasionally perform songs for small groups, I always throw in a few I&S or Ian cowboy songs unless the event is specific to another musical genre, eg Celtic.

So my recommendation is if you liked Ian's work with Sylvia, you should like most of his solo work.

I think "Live at Longview" would be your best choice if you prefer a relatively stripped-down sound....just Ian on rythym acoustic,one lead acoustic,a bass player....there's fiddle on one or two cuts,drums on only a few,trumpet on one....but it's the most acoustic of all his solo recordings,and I think I have them all...it was done in 2002 in his hometown, before a hall full of hardcore and knowledgeable fans...songs are:

Najavo Rug/Old corrals and sagebrush/Desert motel/I outgrew the wagon/Jerry Ambler/Sorta'together/Fifty years ago/Someday soon/Smugglers cove/Casey Tibbs/Blue Moon/Somewhere in the Rubies/M.C.Horses/Horsethief moon/Little High plains town/Bob Fudge/Magpie....

Many of us regard him as Canada's greatest songwriter,in that he can write a heartbreaking love song along with intelligent songs about the cowboy and rancher's way of life;a life he sees slowly disappearing....those songs convey a sense of place in a particular part of Canada that most people here in the east know,or care,little about....hear him while you can....

Tom and Tyson write together when they have a chance, "Navaho Rug" being an example... Danny Greenspoon produced his last CD in Toronto about 2 years ago... haven't heard it yet... but Danny does fine work
