Gospel and Sacred Selections from the Buffalo Songbook. All original music....various recordings from different eras. The title song was recorded at Junior's Motel with Kirk Kaufman engineering and originally released on A Bird On The Wing In Iowa cassette in 1988. Most are newer, recorded here at Big Blue Sound in Fort Dodge, some recorded alone and multi-tracked, and some with various Billy Buffalo Band members joining in. Special thanks to Dolor Adams on drums ( Halo For A Hatband ), Denny Osburn on multiple instruments like piano, organ, mandolin, lap steel & drums ( Halo For A Hatband, Halfway Home To Jesus, We'll All Meet Up Again Someday ), Dave Hearn on piano and accordion ( Home Sweet Home, Tombstone Cowboy ), Kris Karr on drums and harmony vocal ( Home Sweet Home ), Brian Nelson on bass ( Home Sweet Home ), Jan Vroman harmony vocal ( Thank You Grandma ), and David Parker on drums ( Tombstone Cowboy ). Even though Tombstone Cowboy isn't exactly a gospel tune it seems to fit with the rest of the songs. Special thanks to Dave Hearn for coming up with the idea for that one, cowriting the tune, and coproducing the track at Dave Haldin's recording studio in 1996.
