Ian Tyson: Yellowhead to Yellowstone and other Love Stories. Ian Tyson has been singing his songs for what must now be at least a half a century and in so many ways he remains true to the roots he sang from with that iconic “Four Strong Winds”. Ian is getting on in years (aren’t we all) and his voice has become frayed, some say for the worse. Dissenting opinion has it, though, that his voice has become enriched with greater character than ever. Ian remains the cowboy but he’s an honest cowboys: he works his own cattle on the eastern range. His music is equally honest: no fancy amplification or electronics. Just a guitar, three or four backup guys, a couple of amps and away we go. The album contains an interesting, maybe eclectic, mix of songs, some contemporary themes, some about days gone by :” Yellowhead to Yellowstone”: the song of a wolf transplanted from one to the other;” Lioness”: a tale of later in the day; and my “Cherry Coloured Rose”, a paean to a favoured horse. Perhaps more than ever, Tyson is packing a lot of nostalgia, sadness and retrospectivity into his work. If you’re new to Tyson you’re in for a treat. What’s the worst that could happen: that you’d investigate his other CDs? You could do worse.
