The title song was chosen on purpose. This release will draw the final curtain on the remarkable musical journey of the Sons Of The San Joaquin.
Jack, Joe & Lon Hannah have led charmed professional lives, traveling the world, singing with symphonies, and their efforts have given us classic recordings. From the fertile brain of Jack sprang several modern standards of our repertoire. Theirs was one of the first contemporary acts chosen for induction into the Western Music Hall of Fame.
These previously unreleased recordings are from 1996 and 2010 sessions, mastered in 2016. Those famous harmonies are featured on “One More Ride,” “How Great Thou Art” and “The Searchers.” A haunting solo from Jack on “Don't Ride Away” and the classic Hannah big west song construction of “Down Where The Saguaro Grow” are among the the collection's high points.
Now Joe is turning 85, Jack is 83 and Lon turned 60!! The Sons have served Western well, and will stand as one of the greatest of its trios. Happy Trails, Gentlemen. Recommended. Twelve tracks.
