Stephanieâs "Track by Track" Notes â Western Bliss
1. MONTANA COWGIRL: Mid-May, Daggett Canyon: The eastern sky blazes pink, purple, orange, and red above the still-silhouetted piney hills. A meadowlark on a cedar post trills his first âgood morning,â as the little brook at his feet gurgles in cheery agreement. The clean, sweet scent of sage wafts in the breeze, as the little bay colt between your knees twitches his ears to the rhythmic jingling of your spurs. A coyote, no doubt returning from his all-night hunt, appears on the ridgeline. He pauses, studies you for a long moment, then tosses back his head and wails the coyote equivalent of, âItâs a good day to be alive.â You grin, toss back your own head, and, in your best coyote, wail what you hope passes for, âIt IS a good day to be alive.â A little rough around the edges. Okay, seriously lacking in pitch and tone. Simon Cowell: âStick to punching cattle, or whatever it is you do.â But the raven overhead caws "Encore!" The little brook chortles. The cottonwoods nod and murmur appreciatively. And to think people wonder why you live out hereâ¦
2. HITTINâ THE TRAIL TONIGHT: Another fine song for belting out on the trail, in the shower, on your rider mower, or, if youâre like me, while waiting for a highway patrolman to hand you a speeding ticket (âMaâam, if you donât slow down, youâre going to be Hittinâ The JAIL Tonight.â) Blame Rich OâBrienâs blissariffic, pedal-to-the-metal twin guitar riffsâthat, and this blisstastic gem of a song. The words are from the magnificent Bruce Kiskaddon, one of my favorite cowboy poets. Music by Hal Cannon, one of my favorite people.
3. SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO: Late afternoon. The plaza. Tantalizing scents of chiles, meat frying, corn tortillas, drift through the warm desert air. Wildly cascading baskets of fuscia Bougainvilla line the street. An ornately dressed trio of Mexican musicans--fiddle, trumpet, guitarron--have just finished âCietolindo.â Your favorite. Maybe itâs a sign. You sigh, silently wishing you could stay in this beautiful place forever. You turnâ¦someone smilesâ¦and says, âHello.
4. BRONCO BUSTERSâ BALL: No, in answer to my dyslexic friend Bradâs nervous inquiry, this songâs title does NOT refer to an unfortunate incident involving a saddle horn. Now that weâve cleared that up, let me unequivocally state that if you havenât been to a real cowboy dance, you havenât lived. And weâre not talking about Tuesday night line dancing at the Rusty Spur. A real cowboy dance is a major social event. EVERYONE goes, from Grandma to baby Mikeyâ¦Youâll dance until your legs pert near buckle. Youâll make new friends and catch up with old ones. You might even find yourself sharing the beautifully boxed lunch you bid half a monthâs wages on at midnight with its equally beautiful maker. Just be sure to comb your maneâgirls hate burrs.
5. LEANINâ ON THE OLD TOP RAIL: I learned this wonderful classic as a pup, off an Eddy Arnold record. Infectious melody, great lyrics, and Cindy Cashdollarâs steel put the bliss in this one. DAY-YAY-yippie-tay-OH-tee. Saying it three times fast has been rumored to lower blood pressure and cure bunions.
6. NAVAJO TRAIL: There is so much to love about this track â Paul Danielsâ silky background vocals, Reggie Reufferâs sultry, soulful fiddle, Richâs exquisite guitar, and of course, the song itself â dreamy, blissful, a delight to sing. Fifty bucks says youâll be humming this one for days.
7. TEXAS BLUES: Well, itâs not Montana, but over the past few years I have found much to like about Texas, starting with the musicians and ending with the barbeque. Hereâs one of my favorite Bob Wills tunes that Rich channels Junior Barnard on. Salty!
8. OLâ FAITHFUL: Youâve heard the saying: in a lifetime, a cowboy is lucky to find one good dog, one good horse, and one good womanâ¦I would add one great guitar player to that list, and Rich OâBrien is it. One listen to this track will tell you all you need to know.
9. TRAILâS END THEME SONG: âYou should do a radio show.â âA radio show? Me?â âYou should.â âI couldnât.â âYou could.â That little exchange between me and my hero and friend, Garrison Keillor, took place several years back, and has haunted me since. I could? I should. I will! And so, next February or so, the pilot of Trailâs End Ranch Radio will make its debut. Sketches, sound effects, monologues, the Trailâs End Ranch Hand Bandâ¦The details are a bit overwhelming, but it all starts with a theme songâ¦Have I mentioned that we need sponsors?
10. IDAHO: This little Count Basie/Benny Goodman ripper took to our âWestern Blissâ treatment like a musician to an open bar. Check out the blistering, first-take guitar solo by our friend Clint Strong, who has worked with everyone from The Hag to Herb Ellis. Guitar players everywhere will be tempted to convert their axes into cheese slicers when they learn that Clint actually talked and laughed all the way through the take. Can you say, âmulti-tasking monster?â
11. THEREâS A GOLD MINE IN THE SKY: Yes, Iâm an old prospector, promising my one-hoof-in-the grave mule all the grass and good times he can stomach on the other side if he can just keep dragging his sorry, exhausted carcass toward the next Mother Lode on this side. A charming old crooner made popular by Gene Autry, among others.
