Ray Mason Band - Lonesome Cowboy's Lament

from by Various Artists



We're such huge fans of Charlie (Motorbikes, Scruffy, Harmony Rockets.....) and have been for years. We played many double bills with the Motorbikes and I've always considered them to be one of the best rock n' roll bands anywhere! Picking out one tune was tough as there's so many that I love. Charlie's writing has definitely been an influence on and inspiration to me. Listen to the story he tells in Lonesome Cowboy's Lament. Charlie has a way of saying things that is totally his own and this tune is a prime example. I could go on and on but put the records on and hear for yourself the magic that is Mr. Charlie Chesterman!!
