Right flippin' on, Willie-O. I couldn't agree more.

As for Midchuck's comments about Ian Tyson, I heartily agree with those too. Ian has probably written and performed the finest body of cowboy or "western" songs ever penned, from the album "Cowboyography" on, and it's that period of his work that I find most impressive of all. His early stuff was great too, though. "Summer Wages" and "Four Strong Winds" are among the finest folksongs of the modern era.
