Ακόμα μια ηχογράφηση, όχι απ’ τις πιο γνωστές, του κλασικού γουέστερν τραγουδιού. Από πρόβα του Βασιλιά με τη μπάντα του, τον Ιούλιο του 1970 στο πλαίσιο των ιστορικών εμφανίσεών του στο International Hotel του Λας Βέγκας.

Another recording, not among the best known, of the classic western song. From a King’s rehearsal with his band, in July 1970, in the context of his historic appearances in Las Vegas’ International Hotel.


❝ An old cowboy went ridin’ out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows, he saw
Plowed through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw
As the riders leaned on by him, he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Tryin’ to catch the devil herd across these endless skies
Yipie I ay, yipie I oh
Ghost riders in the sky
Yipie I ay, yipie I oh
Ghost riders in the sky. ❞


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
