5.0 out of 5 stars truly western music April 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you're a Willy Nelson, or a Tracy Nelson fan, you should know Mary McCaslin. She sings in an unaffected folk manner, and she is witty, to boot. This album personifies what the girl the cowboy is waving to on the cover of Quicksilver's "Happy Trails" album would sing on her front porch swing. The beautiful "Cole Younger" piece haunts like Emmylou's "Pancho and Lefty", but is less refined and more gritty, "campfirey"(if that's a word), and sung in a very persuasive first person. This is a fun album, especially if you toss into a shuffle play mix on the CD changer with Riders in the Sky, Bob Wills, and Willy Nelson. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting lyrics, memorable melody March 9, 2002
By arkrail
Format:Audio CD
I first became aware of Mary McCaslin after hearing "The Last Cannonball" on another CD. Her melancholy story of riding "The Last Cannonball" was an immediate favorite. Much to my surprise, I found her other performances on this CD to be equally compelling. If you like songs about the west, ballads with just the right mixture of folk and country, or superb background guitar work, you will like this CD. Turn up the volume to get a full appreciation of all of the background nuances. Several of these songs will raise goosebumps on your spine, and at least one will have you blinking back a tear or two. Extraordinarily fine folk music from a very talented performer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Friend! October 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this on vinyl and my kids trashed the turntable years ago so I got it on CD. It's so nice to have her back in my studio! For me, Prairie in the sky was her very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Country/Folk Jewel August 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's such a pleasure to read reviews that reveal a deep appreciation for albums such as this, a true country/folk jewel that we would hope many folks could have the opportunity to hear. The Amazon reviews open up a lot of new possibilities for audiophiles. I've had "Prairie in the Sky" for years on vinyl and just picked-up the CD concerned it might fall out of print. This is a classic that could so easily fall through the cracks. Mary McCaslin comes through with such a sincere love of the material and subject matter. While this would probably get tagged as "Alternative", it's country music far more honest than most of what we hear on the radio. Mary's voice, clean guitar playing, and well written songs all combine to take the mind to other times and other places. The songs offer a range of emotions and images from light-hearted to melancoly. This is a great old favorite for me, and I highly recommend it.

In the late 70's, High Fidelity Magazine did a review of this album, and raved about it. I took a chance, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Recently I realized I missed having female voices around, & rather than call rent-a-niece, I returned to this old fave. Sometimes you can go home again, and it's not close to stalking!
