ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The Cowboy Iliad reaches back to the spoken tradition of storytelling — designed to have no simple resolution, but a mix of history, nostalgia and speculation. And, of course, we wanted to honor the tradition of the Western…
In other words, Bobby Woods and I had a couple of shooters and made a record.” - Walter Hill

In this spoken word album, writer/director Walter Hill, well-known for his westerns (The Long Riders, Geronimo, Wild Bill, Deadwood, Broken Trail), makes his recording debut at 77, telling the story of a shootout that occurred in Newton, Kansas in 1871 and its legendary aftermath of violence and controversy.
