Buckaroo Gal, One Track Mind 
Crazy Love Records CLCD 6448
  

I actually don't know why I didn't review this album before, because it was released early 2003 already I think. Maybe it's because I always got a huge stack of CD's on my desk that still need reviewing, and nobody ever asked me to review this one, I found it on some record market last year and thought I'd give it a try. And I've been givin' it a try ever since. Whenever I'm not reviewing any records, and just wanna play some real gone music for myself, this is the album I slip into the machine and turn the volume up to max. It's definitly my favorite CD of the past few years. There's not one poor track on it, all are great, greater, or the best. Esepcially the opening track "Unmarked Grave" gives me goosebumps everytime.

Somewhere in 2001, famed cats Lee Gocher (ex-Rapids) and former Untamed member Mick Cocksedge (no, seriously!) decided to kick up some dust by bringing a new sound into town. Along with Chris Weeks & dave Prince "One Track Mind" was born and they roamed from town to town playing their music to every dude that would listen. As with all good western tales, some good men were lost travelling the dusty trails. Chris & Dave hung up their spurs for a different life.

Mick & Lee were left to travel the prairies alone, searching for a new rhythm section. Day by day they rode and very soon two new guns were hired. Nick Hoadley (ex Bob & The Bearcats) on double bass and Robin Scottow on drums. Unfortunatly One Track Mind are have split up. Mick Cocksedge did an excellent album with The Cordwood Draggers in september 2003 titled "My Baby's Like A Rocketship",  and Lee Gocher and Nick Hoadly have reformed their old band The Sundowners, but I can still recommend you to get this album. A bit late maybe, but I felt that you didn't wanna miss out on this one...
