Retro Vinyl Find: Tex Ritter - The Texas Cowboy (Music For Pleasure,1970)

Here's another recent vinyl find, again on the diverse budget Music For Pleasure label...

Tex Ritter was well known for his country flavoured cowboy songs, his best known hit perhaps been his recording of High Noon, his recording career carried on well into the 1970s, and MFP recognised his appeal with a reissue of his 1960 album Blood On The Saddle around 1971 this time renamed The Texas Cowboy (MFP 5245) .

Evidently the cover art was a modernised approach to the original with a nameless cowboy sitting by a campfire, but the atmosphere was set to revisit such tracks as Boll Weevil, Billy the Kid and Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie.
