Editorial Reviews

NEW for 2008 "How The West Was Sung," a collection of Royal Wade Kimes favorite western songs. Wonderment Records asked him to do "The Best Of Royal Wade Kimes Western." The label has enjoyed lots of email and phone calls asking for a best of Royal Wade since his first appearance on XM Satellite Radio. Timing is everything, Royal Wade had started the project not knowing he was going to be asked by XM radio to have his own show "Tails From The Trail." This album could not come at a better time from an awearness stand point to making it available to the public. The first track "Faster Gun," a man who is caught up in a profession he wishes he was not in, and knowing there is only one way it can end, is the right out of the gate example of what a ride your in for when you have "How The West Was Sung." "Jacob's Well" is so vivid and by the time you get through "The Stranger and Clyde" your so in the west your looking for a place along the trail to rest. Then comes "Ponies" the only cover song on the record and no one has ever covered it like Royal Wade Kimes. Royal Wade said "To sing a song and sing it believeable you have to understand the subject, experinced it in some way." Royal Wade grew up riding the range in the AR.OKLA badlands as it was called. He hales from a long line of family outlaws, has been riding horses since the day he was born, which gives him the knowledge of what he sings about. We "John Doe Public" are beyound fortunate to have this one last chance to really get a glimpse at the old west from the eyes and heart of someone who has been there. To think this is the 21st century and we actually have someone who can tell us about this our most famous history, "The West, The Cowboy." Were fortunate in several ways, just in how it happened at all. Royal Wade was signed at a Warner Brothers Record Label, didn't like what he saw, felt and knew, so he walked away to do what God intented him to do in the first place. To write, record and perform Cowboy Country and Western Music! In "How The West Was Sung," you can hear Johnny Cash in "The White Horse." RW does not sound like Johnny, but you sure think of Johnny Cash in the song. Listening to "Shooting Star and Senorita" a person cannot keep from thinking of Marty Robbins. Then there is the co-written tune with the Great Sheb Wooley who starred in High Noon and Rawhide, "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone." Sheb is gone now, but Royal Wade was asked to sing that song at his passing, something RW said was an honor but extremely hard to do. Now we come to the most ingenious song in years, a song that talks about an outlaw, a different outlaw, the one the Calvery could not catch. The song "Apache Kid." it is so well crafted, lyrics and melody. The haunting flute and then the hard driving down beat. Listening to this record is like being on a journey. Royal Wade Kimes knows how to end a journey too. How clever to end the whole theme with "Boys It sure was a ride wasn't it?" That line coming from the song "I come To Dance" which by the way was dedicated to Sheb Wooley and Chris Ledoux. RW sings "I see you standing over me, hats in your hands, don't look sad the ride was grand." "Just think on the good times the things that we done, every ol cowboy rides a setin sun." What a way for a cowboy to say goodbye. "How The West Was Sung" is the best collection of western songs available today. Do not live your life without them in your library of songs. Garth Brooks once said of RW, "When listening to the record you learn something about the guy, it's an artist record, we lost that in this business. What do you add to that? If your 15 or 90 you'll dig this CD. What do you add.. "I got to have that!"

I saw Wade in concert and afterward he signed a CD of How the West Was Sung. It is a very good sampler of his best work and the new song, Apache Kid, is very good. I have all his work.

One late night while driving home listening to the radio a song came on that I had never heard before. The singer was Royal Wade Kimes who was also unknown to me. His voice and the song immediately grabbed me. I went on Amazon to find out about this guy and listened to samplings of his CDs. He is the best I have heard in years, akin to the likes of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. Now he is my favorite country singer. I have all his CDs, and just wish I had come to know about him long before now. A lot of my friends are getting just as hooked as I am! And we are all fans from Massachusetts!

I've bought many of Royal Wade Kimes mp3's from his cd's and have really come to love his music. I have never heard him on radio, but I often go searching for new music that is not always mainstream and found him through searching through Amazon's music. He is a great artist with a classic country style and a unique, captivating voice. My favorite song of all is "The White Horse." This song just touches me every time. I really like all of his songs, but a couple other favorites include "In My Land" and "Flower in the Wind." Thanks, Mr. Kimes, for the music.
