Cowboy Worship EPAmen Dunes' Love took close to a year and a half, 16 musicians, and five different
studios to complete. It was a song cycle that required broad experimentation before
it was clear what was essential underneath the surface. In that process, much
of the sound that might have made it onto the album was lost. There was just too
much to say for one record.
Cowboy Worship is an attempt to give life to some of the music that didn't make
it past the scalpel. From a blown-out version of "Green Eyes" featuring Harvey
Milk's Stephen Tanner, to a darker and mellower "I Can't Dig It" as Damon
McMahon originally arranged it upon writing the song in China, many of the
original intentions for the music that were lost in the Love sessions are revived. In
addition is a band version of Through Donkey Jaw's "Lezzy Head," featuring Dunes
mainstays Jordi Wheeler and Parker Kindred, and most significantly, a shining
cover of This Mortal Coil's interpretation of the Tim Buckley classic, "Song to
the Siren," featuring Ben Greenberg (Hubble) on guitar.
Tim Buckley, along with several other singers, from Elvis Presley to Marvin
Gaye to Tim Hardin, were the beacons that guided the making of Love. McMahon's
cover of "Song to the Siren" is an homage to the spirit that directed those
One description that seemed to work for Love was that it was an album of devotional
music, and even more specifically, a type of devotional music McMahon
called cowboy worship.
Cowboy worship as a concept certainly did not begin with Love, but instead Love
began with cowboy worship, was born from it, and in turn added a new link to

Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early
fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs,
of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide
superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract
and signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King of Rock and Roll" trademark
to his name.
Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star
in over 35 top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all
time. In 1977, his career ignited even further thanks to his highly successful tour and his much anticipated newly released LP Moody Blue.
Already gaining popularity in advance thanks to two chart single smashes Moody Blue and Way Down, this masterwork album
included a treasure trove of studio and concert performances that captured a very great time in the musical history of this iconic legend.
In addition to the wonderful hit singles aforementioned, The King reaches back to his early Memphis days with a tribute to Johnny Ace
with Pledging My Love and more fifties classics like The Diamonds' Little Darlin' and Jim Reeves' country smash He'll Have To Go.
Even more hits abound with sensational interpretations of Al Hibbler's classic Unchained Melody which also hit the top ten of the
country music charts, a gospel rockin' version of Let Me Be There and a brilliant reading of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice's classic It's
Easy For You.
Sadly, this was Elvis Presley's final album as he passed away suddenly on August 16, 1977. The world was never the same after the
tragic news was told that day, as hoards of fans journeyed to his beloved Graceland to pay their heartfelt tribute to The King of Rock and Roll.
Elvis Presley's Moody Blue album, of course already a huge seller prior to his death, would go on to become one of his biggest albums
ever, as fans rushed to the stores to buy his final masterwork. Initially pressed on BLUE vinyl, this amazing album has been out of print on
vinyl for several decades that is until now!
