5.0 out of 5 stars cowboyography May 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not just for the lover of Western music,but I do rate this CD as the best album of Western music ever performed, maybe one of any class of music performed.A rich voice, the words of the true West. Ian is a treasure of the North American Cowboy culture( Canadian and United States). Anyone whom has worked cattle, rides a horse, or loves what is the West, and does not have this CD, has not one clue of what life is all about.Ian is a modern day troubadour, whom can write and sing a song with such heart and merit, he stands alone. Any music performed by Ian is sure to please. If I had only one CD, this would probably be the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my all-time favorite June 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
I encountered this album by chance, many years ago, when a roommate was playing it in the living room. I'd walked in the back door, heading for my room, when I heard, "...and I have watched that mornin' star..." I spun around and said, "WHO'S THAT???"
I'd heard of Ian & Sylvia, but I hadn't known about his subsequent solo career. When I got a tape of Cowboyography, I was playing it in my truck and it got stuck in the tape player. I played it over & over for years and never tired of it.
He's an enlightened, literate cowboy, and a musical genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless April 23 2004
By EDL
Format:Audio CD
This album, which came out a few years ago,is a critical and abiding piece of the remarkable Ian Tyson story and a testament to a unique talent who has produced some of the best music ever to come out of North America in the past 40 years. As many listeners know, Ian Tyson was part of the seminal Candian folk duo, Ian & Sylvia, who produced more than 10 albums of their startingly unqiue folk harmony sound for Vanguard in the 60's and 70's. When the couple parted ways and the folk era waned, Ian took some time off in Alberta and re-emerged with this album which launched a stunning new phase in his development as a cowboy and Western singer, producing numerous award winning albums since and many steadfast fans. The comments on this album are straight on the mark : this is honest, pure Western music unpolluted with the commercialism of Nashville and an eye for nature and musical imagery in the lyrics which hit the soul and stick there - "...And the sighing of the pines/ Up here near the timberline/Makes me wish I'd done things different/ but wishin' don't make it so " - how true can you get ? And there's a lot more rolling poetry like that, in songs about lost loves in the backrooms of roadstop cafes, the pain of working for summer wages, and wry comparisons between the life of the cowboy and the coyote. Ian & Sylvia's music lives on, timeless and unique ; Ian Tyson is an established genius in his own right as well. What a record. What a life, together and apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great "REAL" Western Music May 21 1998
Format:Audio CD
This CD, as well as Tyson's others, are filled with wonderful solid music. Don't confuse Tyson with a County Western Singer, you won't hear songs about a dog running away or a truck breaking down. This is traditional Western music; songs about everyday ranch life, rodeos, cowboy life, with American and Western history mixed in. It's touching, humerous, sad, and at times baffling. Get a cowboy to translate for you or just have fun trying to fiqure out some of the cowboy lingo he uses yourself. (You don't need to be a cowboy to enjoy the music. But, it is even better when you understand what he is singing about).

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowboy Music at its best! March 4 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you love the simple music and words that make cowboy music much different than country music, then this album should be in your collection. Songs like "Navajo Rug" and "Cowboy Pride" will will stay with you long after you've finished listening to the album. This album also proves that great cowboy music is also excellent two-step and waltz music. Editor, Colorado Country Connection (members.aol.com/cwdancn)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST COWBOY MUSIC March 29 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to cowboy music for over 50 years. This music from Ian Tyson is the best ever. It's authentic, up-to-date and beautiful.If you ever lived on the Northern Plains, and moved away,this CD will make you SO homesick.If you never lived there or are just a wannabe cowboy this is the music you want to hear. It's the real thing.My CD changer holds 5 and this magnificent CD has never been taken out since I got it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent folk music about cowboys and ranch life July 19 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This folk artist brings out the real heart of living the life of a cowboy. How a cowboy feels, what he does, what he sees, even how the ranch wife deals with her cowboy is portrayed. Mr. Tyson has a deightfully mellow voice. If you have any knowledge of what it is like to work the range, cowboy-up, and be around horses and cattle, listen to his songs and you will long to be there yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest artist ever....period!! Oct. 4 2000
Format:Audio CD
Ian Tyson's music IS the west. You can tell in every song that he lives the life he sings about. Having worked on ranches throughout the west for a good portion of my life, I find Ians' music to be absolute magic.....every verse paints a vivid picture in my mind that brings back memories of times that you can only know of if you've been there. To truly appreciate his music, I believe living the western ranch life is essential---it would always be fabulous music, but if you haven't seen the herds of cattle, gotten caught in a sudden thunderstorm high in the Bighorns, or ridden the trails into the rimrock with only your horse as company, it just couldn't be the same. I've worn out at least two of every record he has ever made, and I'm now switching to c.d's. I've also seen him in concert twice, and let me tell you, it just doesn't get any better. If you think the albums are good...seeing him in person is awesome! He's got a sound that you just don't ever get tired of. It's kind of like hearing the wind blowing through the pines and the sagebrush up outside of Longview....you could sit and listen forever. This album, COWBOYOGRAPHY, is in my opinion the greatest collection of songs ever assembled...in any genre. And the song entitled SUMMER WAGES....well it's absolutely the best song ever written---pure, plain, and simple. Keep 'em coming, Ian.

Ian has lived the life of a cowboy and he knows what he is talking about. It comes out in all of his songs. I have been a fan ever since I first heard him in the 60's.
