ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tom Peterson IS Black Hills Gold. He's survived a major heart attack and is finally releasing a record.

His songs have been the soundtrack for South Dakota lives since the early 1970's. Red Willow Band had dancers swinging to "Magic Bird" and "Hell Or High Water". Blueberry Buckle rocked "Say Yes To Love" and "City Song". Albert and Gage from Austin, Texas even recorded an entire album of Tom's songs called "Dakota Lullaby", prompting blues Hall of Famer Marcia Ball to start singing "Say Yes To Love" in her live shows...

But...it's Tom's uniquely emotional voice that carries these new compositions out into the world. A little Americana, a little hard country, some western swing, an epic folk ballad (The Muddy Muddy Mo), and some humor thrown in on "Global Warming" and "Iowa Driver". His stories are historically accurate right down to the opium dens that thrived in Old Deadwood. His lyrics evoke the loneliness of the prairie and the wideness of the Missouri River that splits the state in two distinct sections; East River and West River.

Produced by Chris Gage, the album features the finest of South Dakota musicians teamed up with Austin's A-team. Players include Kenny Putnam, Boyd Bristow, Charley Smith, Lloyd Maines, Spider MacKenzie and Chris Gage. Vocalists include Bristow and Gage along with Christine Albert and Jaimee Harris. Check out the samples, and buy this CD!!
