Every show, every performance, was so charged with energy and fun.
Garnetz
Norton is a "musician's musician," and is by far one of the best living harmonica artists of our day, as well as an innovative songwriter.
T. Gibson
Get this Album, it is a steal for all the good tunes, and look for the new one by him and his new band the Knockouts coming soon!

I was first introduced to Norton Buffalo (literally!) and his music in 1987. This hip, extremely talented musician, best known for his rippin' solo on Bonnie Rait's "Runaway" and for his 20 year + stint with the Steve Miller Band, truly deserves more recognition than he has actually received over the years. Norton is a "musician's musician," and is by far one of the best living harmonica artists of our day, as well as an innovative songwriter. These albums were unavailable for years...all I had was a bootlegged copy on cassette, which I completely wore out. I am SO delighted to have access to this music again, and on CD! I really enjoy all of Buffalo's songs, but my favorites include "Nobody Wants Me," "Eighteen Wheels" and the infectious "Hanging Tree." Norton is also offers some of the most dynamic live performances you will ever see. His music is a real treat and comes highly recommended by yours truly.

We had the great pleasure of catching Norton Buffalo (with mighty guitarist Roy Rogers) in concert last night where I had the opportunity to ask about the unavailability of this classic album.

I learned that Capitol records won his trust over 3o years ago and were able to purchase the rights. Norton has been trying to get them back ever since. Capitol sold them to another (european) company which has now gone under, enabling the artist to re-acquire the rights to his own work- YEAH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will, once again, be available later this year.

We can hardly wait to hear this truly classic album again!

Nortons first two albums are just the greatest, covers a lot of styles on this double album set, My favorite is "Nobody Wants Me" but all the songs are good. If you don't know, Norton is one of the greatest blues harp players int he world, and he doesn't only play the blues. You will hear tropical (like Buffet) type sounds "Puerto De Azul", old west kind of western sounds "Hangin' Tree"&"High Tide in Wingo", even a truck drivers song! "Eighteen Wheels". DONT get me wrong, I love rock/blues not country, but Norton has a way of making anything sound good, with his Amazing harmonica riffs, and a pationate wide ranging, voice (With funny voices too!) Get this Album, it is a steal for all the good tunes, and look for the new one by him and his new band the Knockouts coming soon!

I was first turned on to Norton Buffalo in the 70's when he some work with Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen. I also went to see him at the Sonoma County Fair and at the Inn Of The Beginning in Cotati, CA. My LP's have gotten a lot of play over the years, and the music still stands up as some of the most original, innovative & infectious stuff I have ever heard.

HINT: If you watch the Bette Midler Movie "The Rose", that's Norton playing the harp in her band - in fact, the song "Midnight in Memphis" is her cover of a song by The Moonlighters (a band consisting mainly of Cody alumni), whose album (if you can find it) is also one of the best albums in my collection!

In the mid '70's I went to a Steve Miller Concert in San Diego. I was dissapointed with Steve Miller but his opening act blew me away - Norton Buffalo. Being a harmonica player myself, I sat up and drank in everything that came from that stage. Shortly afterward I bought Norton's first album, "Lovin' In The Valley Of The Moon" and followed that with his second "Desert Horizons". My albums are worn out and I've been slightly dissapointed with his latest works with Roy Rogers. I'm thinking the producers of his earlier works brought a fuller sound. Now I'm glad to see that these works are finely available on CD and I can once again enjoy the rich music these two albums have to offer

I first heard these albums in 1978-79 and have loved them ever since. Norton has an natural talent for playing the harmonica. His lyrics are related to a time long ago when Cowboys and then truckers ran the land and the law. All his songs relate to the San Francisco Bay Area and Mapa Valley. Just to let you know occasionally you can catch Norton at one of the local clubs, and alway playing with Steve Miller when he's in town.

Sounds of Norton remind me of my father and I, Norton's music filled our house, and my ears through my childhood. One Kiss To Say Good-Bye is 77 all over again, and the nostalgia of it is overwhelming. Great lyrics and melody through the whole album, all the songs are great. I would recommend this to anyone who truly loves, and appreciates Good Music! No Teeny Bopper BS!

There just aren't enough words to describe the talent of Norton Buffalo. I've been turned on to him pretty recently, but, man, I'm hooked!
