This album "Cowboy Favorites" is such a great showcase of Clint Eastwood's great voice and some of the greatest cowboy songs ever written. Anyone who is a fan of "Rawhide", can't miss this album, especially the song about Clint Eastwood's character, "Rowdy".
A Great Album You Won't Want To Miss!

Hey - I didn't know Clint could sing. Saw that the album was coming out and had to check it out - WOW - he has (had) a voice. A great collection of classic cowboy tunes from the era when cowboys ruled. Well worth the purchase - wish they had it for download, though. Try it - you won't be disappointed. I wasn't. Happy Trails !

With so much incredible material in the Cameo-Parkway vault, most of which hasn't seen reissue in fifty years, one has to wonder why Collectors' Choice decided to make this 1963 television tie-in one of the first C-P original album reissues. When originally issued, Eastwood had been starring in Rawhide since 1959, and though he'd become one of the most famous actors and directors of his generation, his singing career (which also included the 1969 film version of Paint Your Wagon and hit duets with Merle Haggard and T.G. Sheppard) remained mostly a sidelight. This album was the joint product of Eastwood's background as a pianist and the early-60s penchant for cashing in on television popularity. Unlike the pop and rock records of Ricky Nelson, Shelley Fabares and others of the era, the 33-year-old Eastwood and his producers put together a set of western songs that played well to the actor's voice. It was a good fit for the times, with Bonanza climbing to its mid-60s peak, and Marty Robbins' "El Paso" and Gene Pitney's "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" having dented the pop charts. Eastwood proves himself a passable crooner (rather than simply a television actor stepping out), and the unnamed New York band (which seems unlikely to have been the hard-charging Philadelphia-based Cameo-Parkway house combo) is sharp but bland - even Eastwood's jazz background can't move the band to swing Bob Wills' "San Antonio Rose.Read more ›

Saw Clint Eastwood's new film Jersey Boys. (He's the producer with a cameo role on TV set in hotel room.) But the real secret is that Clint Eastwood is great singing cowboy favorites on this album from years past, "Rawhide's Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites". When I saw the musical version of his hit film with Meryl Streep, "The Bridges of Madison County" on Broadway, I couldn't help but notice the resemblance between actor Steven Pasquale's voice (playing the Eastwood film role) and Clint Eastwood's. Uncanny! BTW, "Bridges" on Broadway won two Tonys June 8, 2014 for Best Orchestration and Best Original Score. IMHO, actress Kelli O'Hara although nominated, should have won Best Actress in a musical for her "Bridges" role (played by Meryl Streep in the film version). Just saying, Tony voters...you know who you are....

"RolI`em, roll`em, roll`em....Rawhide!" I suggest that everyone, who like Clint Eastwood creation, every fan and everybody, who like to discover him as a singer and a musician should have this recording. I personally have never heard him singing and that is why I bought it. The second reason was that I felt in love with the song "Bouquet of Roses" so much, that I even bought a sheet of music for to play it on a piano. I am really happy, that I managed to get it. And I discovered, that we both like Bing Crosby. I have to agree that perhaps Eastwood is a better musician, composer and pianist as a singer. Anyway, this set of the folk songs are representing a branch of American culture, the western cowboy song. Those songs are identified with the spirit of America. During the long watches of the dark night, as the cowboy rode around the milling herds, he sang colourful ballads and melodies. Alone with just the moon, the stars and the herd, the songs of the cowboy were often plantiff, sad and emotionally moving. He sang of his home, his girl, his land of dreams and his hopes for tomorrow. Clint's strongest effort on the collection is San Antonio Rose, written by the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills. Since Wills was the first western artist to weave elements of jazz into his work, it was only natural that Eastwood would feel a special kinship to this song since his musical interests were heavily steeped in jazz. A talented vocalist, a pure origin american soul Clint Eastwood and America's most popular "cowboy favorites" are an unsurpassed bouquet that spells "entertainment."

If you watched Rawhide when it was on T.V. and are an Eastwood fan, you have to add this to your collection.
