Both concepts come together on Tall Grass & Cool Water: Cowboy Songs VI/Buckaroo Blue Grass III. Some of the material here is surprising in that it wasn't recorded earlier, namely classic tunes by Bob Nolan including "Cool Water," "Way Out There," and "Blue Prairie." Most of the rest are age-old story songs that have been in the public domain for decades; and though Murphey plainly states this in his liner notes, he nonetheless claims songwriting credits on virtually every one of them, including, "The Santa Fe Trail" and "Springtime in the Rockies!" He gets away with it by rearranging these tunes, some of them radically. A stand-out cut is opener "Texas Cowboy," the stellar bluegrass stomper set to a Celtic melody, with some serious mandolin playing by Sam Bush, whining dobro by Andy Hall, soaring fiddle by Andy Leftwich, and the careening banjo of Johnny Cushman.The album's true treasure is the James Gang trilogy
