Description

Songs of the Untamed West on CD

Frank Fara's songs are perhaps best described as Frontier Americana ~ His singing captures our imagination and catapults us back in time to some of the most defining moments in the history of the American West ~ His tunes often target the turbulent decades following the Civil War, when gun toting soldiers returned home to make a living on the new frontier ~ Some put on a lawman's star, as the Earps did to clean up the deadly streets of Tombstone ~ Others lived outside the law, like the Daltons until they were shot down in a vain attempt to rob two banks at once The stark visual imagery in Fara's songs has often been described as three minute movies ~ His cast of characters include both the famous and the forgotten ~ Billy the Kid at 17, with his boyish charm and smoking gun, became a worldwide legend before Pat Garrett ended Billy's young life at 21 ~ George Armstrong Custer, seeking the ultimate victory in the Indian Campaigns, led the 7th Cavalry to their date with destiny at the Little Big Horn ~ Pancho Villa was a beloved hero of the Mexican revolution to many, but a glory seeking bandit to others ~ Isom Dart, a dashing black cowboy whose adventures in the west are often left untold ~ Diamondfield Jack, a range detective, caught in the middle of the cattle and sheep wars, spent ten years in prison for a crime he didn't do Frank Fara rounds out The Songs of the Untamed West with a lighthearted tune about Stagecoach etiquette ~ A soulful ballad of the ill-fated Donner Party wagon train ~ And a special song that transports us to that magical place featured in so many western movies ~ The Red Rocks of Sedona.
