Album Notes
November 21, 1995 Original Liner Notes:

Joseph H. “Joe” Baer
1940 - 2010

Inspired by the traditions and heritage of the western cowboy, Joe Baer started at a young age singing and playing guitar around campfires with family and friends. Growing up and working on ranches with names like the Triangle Z, Nine Quarter Circle and the Flying Diamond, Joe learned the traditions and heritage of the West. With songs like his Headin' for the Ranch and in bands like the Cowboy Fiddle Band, Joe keeps the spirit of the American cowboy alive. As a member of the Arizona Cowboy Poets Society and The Orpheus Chorus, Joe has received numerous awards for his music and authentic vocal renditions.

From toe-tapping bluegrass to country swing, this collection of classic cowboy songs highlights the traditions of a bygone era, when drovers and ranch hands alike, soothed their lot with their distinctive musical stylings. With the guitar and the fiddle as the orchestra, cowboy music derived from a blend of styles as diverse as the roots of its authors. While the rhythm guitar laid the foundation, the fiddle provided soaring solos and fills around the vocal lines enhancing the melodies.

Influenced by the likes of The Sons of the Pioneers and Bob Wills, Julianna Waller demonstrates the versatility of her fiddle, from bluegrass improvisations in tunes such as John Hardy and Bluegrass in the Backwoods, to sweet renditions of Let the Rest of the World Go By and Memories. Joe Baer's cowboy singing spins the stories in a voice so authentic it evokes the images of life on the western range. The yodeling in Headin' for the Ranch and Texas Plains reminds the listener of the lonely cry of the cowboys symbol, the coyote.

Swing tunes like Anytime and Whispering show the influence of ragtime and early jazz on cowboy music. In the adventure story Great American Cowboy, the fiddle's high pitches add an erie suspense building to a dramatic conclusion. And finally Ghost Riders in the Sky hauntingly presages the cowboy's demise and transformation into legend.

The songs on this album reflect Julianna's love for traditional fiddling styles and authentic Cowboy songs.
