Come Ride with Me
From the Review by Margo Metagrano at Cowboypoetry.com: 'With a great stable of backup musicians and his own guitar wizardry, the CD includes many songs that have already become audience favorites, including the title track, 'In Old McGee Canyon,' 'Used Rough,' 'Geronimo's Children,' 'Sharon Littlehawk,' and the outstanding 'Ruby Could Sing.' The collection showcases Dave Stamey's remarkable range in his sensitive and intelligent songwriting, words that come from years spent in the real working West, often with passionate themes of piercing honesty about that endangered world. Those words are expressed with both seriousness and ironic humor, and, always, with his brand: integrity. Just as in his performances, where he gives it his all, and then somehow, more, Come Ride With Me offers a final gift to fans. The last (hidden) track, 'One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)' is a masterful interpretation with a startling depth of feeling, a perfect example of Dave Stamey's complex and compelling attraction as an artist. He sings, 'I'm a kinda poet and I got a lot of things I wanna say....' We're listening.'
