"Princess of the Rodeo"
a long playing musical album, that features 11 songs written
in October 2003 on a segment of the Buffalo
Bill Wild West Prayer trip. The album was
designed to be a "Far Eastern Psychedelic Spaghetti Western"
musical experience. The music is inspired by basic American
music styles such as Rock, Folk, Country, Western, Blues,
and good old Hillbilly music; but is influenced by travels
to Tibet, Japan, and other far eastern countries.
W. Dire Wolff made the album, Princess of the
Rodeo, with some well known Marin and Sonoma County musicians.
The album has Mario
Cipollina along with Marin County’s Kurt Huget (Moonlight
Rodeo), Phil Richardson (fiddle with Norton Buffalo and
now with Marin’s Danny Montana & the Bar Association),
Michaels (drummer with many other bands and sessions -
recently recording in Marin with guitarist Mark Karan) as
well as Petaluma’s, Neal Carson. You can find the album
on web sites like CD
Baby and Amazon.com
