Title - ‘New Riders of the Purple Sage’ (Columbia/Legacy)
Artist - New Riders of the Purple Sage
For years and years, I've enjoyed the self-titled first recording of the New Riders of the Purple Sage. If you’re a fan of some of the cowboy music ("El Paso", "Me & My Uncle", "Jack Straw") the Grateful Dead played in the early '70s, then you'll love NRPS. John "Marmaduke" Dawson, David Nelson and Dave Torbet join forces with Dead musicians Jerry Garcia & Mickey Hart to create a perfect mixture of cowboy/country rock with a touch of psychedelia thrown in for good measure. In the mix we get a number of light hearted stories of cowboys, dope runners, train robbers, old girlfriends and the ecology of the planet. My personal favorite song of the CD is the fast paced, bouncy smuggler's tale - simply entitled "Henry". But really all the tunes are great!
