Sleeve Notes

THE cattle are fed and watered: the horses tethered. The sun's gone down and the stars are appearing. Grub's come and gone and it's time to sing a song round the camp fire.

Instruments appear, throats are cleared, and voices are tried. And here are the songs the cowpokes sing: songs about the life they lead, the places they visit, the trails they follow.
