I have a pretty complete collection of Ian Tyson; and, while I would not rate this as his very best, I still give it five stars. Why? Because when he is good on this album, Ian is at his absolute best. And, at other times, he is still better than 99% of your other choices. To my mind, there are four songs on this one that are must-haves: Heartaches Are Stealing, MC Horses, Bighorns and Old Corrals and Sagebrush. And, of these, Bighorns is my very favorite. It is a ballad about horsethieves hiding out in the Bighorn Mountains of NE Wyoming. The music is beautiful. The story is so real and compelling it begs a music video. Ian's voice is absolutely perfect. And the harmonies are so subtle yet so absolutely right that it gives me thrills to hear it. One thing I love about Ian's work is how he evokes the country he writes about. His imagery makes you see it and feel it. And in Bighorns, he does this as well has he ever has. Don't miss this CD if you are an Ian fan, a country fan, a Western music fan or if you just like good music, no matter what the genre.
