Yippie tie jah!! Mit Tomahawk und Friedenspfeife

German cowboy tunes!! Featuring many famous German stars of the day... Gus Backus, Peter Alexander, and even James Last!! Many Americana covers here, also some original tunes including the scariest version of Ghost Riders In The Sky i have ever heard. The Max Gregor Orchestra pounds out Memphis Tennessee with a sax leading the charge and Missouri Cowboy is reminiscent of The Fendermens' Mule Skinner Blues. Gus Backus sings his huge hit "Da sprach der alte hauptling" (click here to visit my myspace profile and watch the video of the song). Enjoy!
