After a three year hiatus (at least from recording), the duo known as the Panhandle Cowboys has returned. Better engineered and mastered this time around, this album pretty much lets them be them.

Farmer Dave Fulfs is an accomplished Burl Ives-type singer on these original tracks. J.B. Barber contributes poetic narrations on eight of them, with nice support from Bodie Dominguez (guitar, bass & harmonica) and Elliott Marks (fiddle). The traditional style songwriting here strikes me as being particularly intelligent and suits Fulfs’ delivery well. One technical puzzlement: I don’t fully understand why Barber’s EQ (tone on his voice) and presence varies from one track to the next, but, whatever.

Picks include “Prairie Waltz,” “Coyote Swing,” “Blackfoot Joe,” “Cowboy Trail,” “The New Outfit,” “Thirty & Found” and “A P{lace Called Idaho.” It’s a nice little collection, and should find favor with the folks who take their Western Americana straight. Sixteen tracks.

CD: $15 ppd through farmerdave@turbonet.com or by calling for arrangements (509) 336-1616 and downloads are available through cdbaby.com.
