A NOTE ON ELSEWHERE & Sid Marty
Elsewhere, published by Centre Peak Productions is the title of Sid Marty's second album of original songs, the first being Let the River Run released by Centre Peak in l990 and long out of circulation. Some listeners might recall two songs in particular from that first effort, the cowboy song "Down Along the Livingstone" and a comic effort "The Lonely Moose"
Produced by renowned Calgary-based blues artist Tim Williams, the songs on Elsewhere include a lament for third world child soldiers, a paean to melting mountain glaciers, tributes to Alberta's vanishing ranching culture and passionate love songs and up tempo celebrations of Rocky Mountain days and nights. Guest appearances by Ken Hamm, Ron Casat, Amos Garrett David Wilkie, John Campbell and Paul Marty give the album a real western edginess and vocal support from Tom Wilson, Denise Withnell and Myrna Marty augment Sid's baritone voicing.
