Album Notes
Cliff Dutton's baritone voice and these authentic songs
will send your imagination back to the cattle drive days of the 1800's.

"Hittin' The Trail" is an anthology of old-time cowboy songs which includes old classics as well as some lesser known selections that colorfully describe cowboy life during the era of the open range in the American West. Cowboy poetry enthusiasts will recognize poets Henry Herbert Knibbs, Curly Fletcher, Bruce Kiskaddon and Allen McCanless whose words became lyrics for some of the songs. Common threads in the lyrics are the cowboys' grievances of a rugged way of life as well as their acclamations of pride for their trade. A cowboy's bond to his horses and his desire for freedom in the wild prairie and big western sky, prevailed over the hardships as did his camaraderie with his fellow trail hands who shared in the struggle. Songs on the album are: I Ride An Old Paint; Whoppee-Ti-Yi-Yo, Git Along Little Dogies; The Pot Wrassler; The Brazos; Little Old Log Shack I Always Call My Home; Wyoming Home; Punchin' The Dough; Ridge Runnin' Roan; Pimento; The Cowboy Soliloquy and I'm Hittin' The Trail Tonight.

Singer Cliff Dutton has been a ranch hand, on guest and cattle ranches for twenty years in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Arizona. He has taken part in talent shows singing his favorite western songs a cappella as well as performing in evening campfire shows. He taught himself to play the guitar and has played in weekly performances for guests. Many guests have encouraged Cliff to make a recording so finally he produced this, his first album.

Cliff also had the privilege to be one sixth of a six member band of talented folks in Virginia City, Montana called "Way Out West" who plays antique songs for an antique town.
