Sue Harris, well-known vocalist, in her new, eagerly-awaited CD "Tall Tales and Treasurers" delivers the original
western music with verve and a touch of dry humor. Songs include the beloved "Quail Sisters" (Young/Maloney/Norris), and also tunes by Dean Cook, popular Arizona song writer - - "The
Minstrel's Song", "Saddle in the Pawn Shop", "Where Do You Go", "Kokopelli" and the title song. Sue also honors classic cowboy poets S. Omar Barker and Badger Clark by singing
lyrics from their poetry. A definite must for your collection and a great gift.
" Fresh, original Western music sung with verve and a touch of dry humor."
Aaron, Cowboy Joe's Radio Ranch, WBAI Radio, New York City.
"It's probably obvious that I am pretty much a traditionalist and a picky old cuss. I know what I like and
what I don't like. I guess it's what they call mule headed. Well, Tall Tales & Treasures got this old mule moving. This one now holds a cherished spot
in my all time
Western music seems to be running the course of many other genres of music -- it all gets to sounding the same after a while. This definitely is not the
case with Tall Tales & Treasures. Sue Harris has a masterful touch with "true western music". She conveys the feeling of what this music is supposed to be about -- wide open
spaces, a type of life style and a particular type humor indigenous to the west. Tall Tales & Treasures succeeds where other attempts seem to fall short. It's WESTERN and
traditional sounding to boot. Plus, Sue gets the Lone Hand Golden Saddle Award for knowing how to play a waltz. Tall Tales & Treasures is a must have recording for fans of western
music or great music in general."
Mark Bridge, PhD, Lone Hand Western
"Against a backdrop of hot instrumentalists and superb production,
unique and glorious voice embraces each song as she would a
loved one. Sue clearly treasures and deeply cares for these well-crafted songs
from the pens of a range of western
songwriters and poets and her true voice
flows over them like desert honey. It's been seven years since Sue's debut
album and all I can say is, itís been worth the
P.J. Curtis, Irish broadcaster, author and record producer.
