Les Buffham and Friends – Writes and Co-Writes Vol. III

My life has been really busy lately and it took a few days to find the time to sit down and listen to Les Buffham and Friend’s “Writes and Co-writes Vol. III.”  What an incredible collection of songs and voices!  It’s too bad I have already picked out music for next week’s show…I could just play this CD!!!  All of it!!!

When you have singers and musicians like Devon Dawson, Trails & Rails, Sally Harper Bates & Suzy Killman, Pat Meade, Richard Elloyan, Hank Cramer, Patty Clayton, Jon Messenger, Prickley Pair & Cactus Chorale, Marvin & Austin O’Dell, Mary Kaye, Chuck Cusimano and Dave Stamey singing songs co-written by the same folks and Les Buffham and throw in a little Jean Prescott and Juni Fisher writing too…you have a winner!!!

Add this CD to your collection by calling Les Buffham at 661-388-8535 or email him at lesbuffham@yahoo.com.  You’ll be so happy you did!


Dancin’ In Denver – Patty Clayton

What a great way to spend a cold windy day…listening to Patty Clayton!  What a treat!  Her new CD “Dancin’ In Denver” has a wonderful variety of music.  From the opening song, “Let’s Dance” (Patty Clayton) to “Heart Beats For The Boogie” (same writer) you are entertained!  Great banjo pickers along with all the other talented musicians, dance music, Hawaiian Music…you’ll love it all!  I guess I never associated Hawaii with Western music…but you can’t get much further west…can you???  Between the first song and the last one you will hear: “Black Hay,” “Arizona Moonlight,” “Dancin’ In Denver,” “Your Saddle Is Empty Old Pal,” (As recorded by the Stanley Brothers) “Pa’U Riders,” “Lookin’ Glass” (Marvin O’Dell), “Wanda Walker” (with Les Buffham), “Cowboy Hula” (Sam Kamaipelekane), “Montana Cowboy” (Ray Park).

“Joining Patty in the dance” were Ernie Martinez, John Bubb, Linda Erickson, Johnny Neill, Lesley Kline, John Magnie, Daniel Jones, Rich O’Brien, Hannah Alkire, Stuart Yoshida, Neil Javerstick, Mary Sribling, Sarah Lincoln, Butch Hause.  What a group of musicians!
