Southwestern Souvenirs is pure Rich O’Brien, nine instrumentals and three vocals with spicy taco sauce poured over the top. This wonderful recording represents O’Brien’s long admiration of the sounds that have been a part of Western Music since the explorers, settlers, gold rushers and cowboys ventured into the Southwest.
Legendary songwriter and Country Music Hall of Famer Cindy Walker calls him “A full blooded guitar man!” Two of Cindy’s songs are featured on this release including “Rose of Mexico,” a song found on the flip side of Al Dexter’s 1948 hit, “Pistol Packin’ Mama.” Also included is the theme to “Gunsmoke” with the original lyrics sung by Don Edwards.
