When Cowboys Dream - available cassette or CD
This collection of songs loosely follows the theme of dreams. There are as many different kinds of dreams as there are different sorts of cowboys - from working cowboys to singing cowboys. It includes our contest winning yodel in a new recording of the song Sagebrush Symphony.
     Here's what Ranger Doug, of The Riders In The Sky, says about it:
"KG and the Ranger are among the best known proponents of the western style and it's easy to hear why:
        they sing with charm and style, they yodel spectacularly, choose great material with unerring taste, and write
        fine new songs as well. Their growing and continuing success is well deserved."

   Song Titles:
        Wide Rolling Plains
        Will There Be Sagebrush In Heaven
        Move Along, You Lazy Cattle
        Along The Santa Fe Trail
        Happy Dreaming Cowboy
        Song of The Rover
