Description

A real gem of a solo album recorded by Andy Roberts during the formation and subsequent demise of Plainsong. "Urban Cowboy" was recorded piecemeal during sporadic 1972 sessions, yet emerges as a true gem of an album. Working with his Plainsong colleagues - Iain Matthews, Dave Ronga and Dave Richards - and guest musicians like Richard Thompson, BJ Cole, Martin Carthy, Neil Innes and Dick Parry, Andy Roberts explored a series of beautiful original songs and a powerful cover of Jim Hall's barroom classic, 'Elaine'. Later in his career Roberts would work with the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Grimms, Roy Harper and Pink Floyd, not to mention Roger McGough and the Hank Wangford Band. "Urban Cowboy" and "The Great Stampede" (FLED 3064) serve to document an extraordinary creative period in Andy Roberts musical journey.
