"Poor Lonesome Cowboy" is an original arrangement by Norman Luboff of this famous cowboy's lament. "All The Pretty Little Horses" is a traditional Southeastern American folksong featuring canonic imitation, vocal ostinati, and delicately intertwining melodies, this a cappella setting is stunning. "Sacramento - Sis Joe" is a wiry, spiky combination of two American folk songs; one very well-known; one somewhat obscure. The better known is Stephen Foster's "Camptown Races" but it's appearance here, however, is with a completely different text that captures the excitement of a mid-1800's trip to California in search of gold! "Sis Joe" is a traditional railroad song that was used by Aaron Copland in "Rodeo".
