Album Notes

Rex Rideout Time Travel Music

---The Yampa Valley Boys have done it again with a round-up of songs you might hear around the cow camp. Steve and John have obliged their fans by recording some of our favorites that they sing. The title track, Second Guard (based on a poem) by Bruce Kiskaddon sets the feel of the whole CD.
They've thrown in some old standards as well beloved by all like San Antonio Rose and Sierry Petes. I especially love the sounds of the banjo but they surprised me by including my other favorite, the highland pipes! You'll find more surprises in this collection sure to please any lover of the West.

American Cowboy April/May 2011

Steve Jones and John Fisher cover a lot of ground on their seventh album – from traditional Cowboy to Western Swing, with a dab of cowboy poetry for good measure. It’s far from being a mishmash, however, thanks to expert musicianship.

The Western Way - Western Music Assocation Magazine Spring 2011

Once again Colorado’s Yampa Valley Boys ride in with a rustic, folksy winner!
Warm as a wood fire, the CD starts off with Sandra Reay’s WMA-nominated Song
Of The Year “Already Gone” (also present is her creation “One Lonely Rider”).

For the title track the Yampa’s Steve Jones has given Bruce Kiskaddon’s poem “Second
Guard” an appropriate musical setting. Other Jones originals on the CD “Colors Of The Fall” and “Callin’ Of The Pipes” should find favor with their fans.

He and partner John Fisher are joined by Leon Littlebird on his “Home Of Light,” inspired by a Navajo poem.
This particular track marks an interesting stylistic departure for the Yampas, who say they feel this disc
represents some of their best work to date. I concur! Thirteen tracks total. by Rick Huff
