We gave it a B

No self-respecting fan of hillbilly calls the music country and western anymore, but this contemporary cowpoke hope to change that with a new album on the new Warner Western label. That leaves cowboy poet Waddie Mitchell album, Lone Driftin Rider, to tote home the golden saddle — his stories, accented with the requisite use of ”I reckon” and ”t’weren’t,” range from the comical (how to kill a cat) to the affectingly solemn (a cowboy’s view of suicide). With Mitchell, at least, you’ll want to throw another stick on the campfire.
