Rearranging some shelves the other day, I noticed a CD I'd forgotten about that I am pretty sure I picked up in a used bookstore a few years ago: Tell the Truth, by a band out of Canada called the Reggae Cowboys. As the name suggests, they are (or were, at least until last year) a western-themed reggae band.
[Oops! I just noticed that embedding is disabled for each of the YouTube videos I was going to post here, so you'll have to follow the links to "Searchin' for de Outlaw" and "Jed." Each clocks in at around eight minutes.]
I'd forgotten how much I like their music. To give you an idea of what their sound is like, I'll borrow from a blurb on their press page: "reggae mixed with blues, country, R&B, and jazz." Enjoy!
P.S. This sure makes me miss Texas.
Today: (1) Minor edits. (2) Added PS.
