Comments about the CD:

Love the CD!
—Lynn G

Check out Sandy and Colorado Sandstorm Music online. Buy Bring 'Em Home, her wonderful new record of western and cowboy songs--it is pure, authentic and charming.
Ed

Your lyrics are really great......
—Tom C

I'm impressed at the collaboration you've achieved, both in writing and performance. I found it all to be polished, including the engineering, no mean achievement. The songs each have their own distinct personalities, unlike for many albums and artists I've heard.
—Owen N, songwriter

Wonderful record!
Ed

I received your CD. It's great!
—Randy Huston, Cowboy singer/songwriter

I do like it!

I like it.

Sal and I both, separately, listened to your record today, more than just once.
Lots and lots of lyric and emotional depth all over the project.
We were both really impressed. Congratulations!
Jim Ratts, songwriter

Been listening to the CD. I love it.
Robert Spiller, author

I was looking forward to seeing you and telling you how much I enjoyed your CD. I really like the mixture of poetry and songs and I especially appreciated your fine storytelling of your cowboy and western styled songs. It was very well recorded and really nice musicianship throughout. Very nice job, Sandy!
— Steef S, songwriter

I love it.
—Tim D

I played your CD three times and love all the songs and poems.
—Tom C

I keep meaning to tell you that I'm really enjoying your CD. I think Stitches is my favorite, but it's hard to say because I like them all. Thanks for sharing it with me!
—Rona G, photographer

Hi Sandy: I got your CD a few days ago – well done! It’s great to have a well-produced version of our songs [Melinda Rose, Ride For The Win, Down At Joe's], and I enjoyed the whole project. Thanks for the effort.
Best regards,
John

Just sat down to listen... nice work y'all. Thanks for letting me ride along.
Let Tom and the others know "I Appreciate Y'all!"

Bring 'Em Home

I love that one, too. (3 notes)
—Deb Ewing, poet, artist

Excellent!!!
Ernie (smile) (2 notes)

My goodness. Y’all sure did good! I like everything about it. I can picture this as a lead in song at the beginning of a Robert Duvall movie!
Thanks for your expert contributions everyone!
I especially love Ernie’s mandolin and the rest!
Terry

TRACK LIST

Melinda Rose

Melinda Rose is my favorite.
—Deb Ewing, poet, artist

You should have heard Sandy Reay hit it out of the park with her new song of Melinda Rose. Absolutely wonderful and beautifully done!
Floyd

Oh yes, the emotion and passion was there big time! Very nice.
Floyd

Beautiful song.
Your song writing is some of the very very best of the very very best I have heard!

Black Day

Although the poem is quite, quite dark, I like it.

Glue-lot Cowboy

"OK, that actually made me cry..."
—Becky M, songwriter, artist

Thanks to Sandy, Tom and Spencer for letting me be part of the “Midnight Feedlot Cowboy Band”—and for bringing one of Chuck’s great stories back around.
Of course, I never asked Chuck if they were riding bareback!
But I must have laughed at his feedlot story a thousand times...as a introduction to one of his gems.
Ciao,
Gordon

Sandy,
     First of all, brilliant...just brilliant. And second, thank you so much for sharing this with me. It speaks to me on a few different levels. The melancholy, bittersweet theme of these horses going to their demise, but yet being ridden, happily, one last time, is quite moving.
      My dad always used a wet sponge to seal envelopes and one day (I was probably 10 years old at the time) I asked him why. He told me he couldn’t bring himself to consume the glue possibly made from horses’ hooves on the envelope. That’s always stayed with me.
Thanks again!
—Keegan Pyle

Keegan,
Glad you like it. I tried to channel your dad as much as I could. I miss him.
Tom

I like your CD. I listen to it while processing photos. I especially like Glue-lot Cowboy and Stitches. Chuck had told me many times about riding horses at the slaughter house. I wondered when I heard the song if that's where you'd gotten the inspiration. I suppose that's one of the reasons I like your song so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Chuck.
—Bill Patterson, photographer

Sandy,
thank you for sharing your "new" song with me. i do appreciate your kind and thoughtful gesture.
the song is a lovely tribute to chuck, his stories, his music... 
chuck brought to us the landscape of possibilities..
a place for our spirits to run free...
thank you sandy..
and tom, gordon and spencer for helping with this one; with your music, finding the 'right' something in one of chuck's stories...
it tugs at our hearts in our remembering...
most sincerely,
always, his sweetheart
—terri watson

Oh, yeah! I like it! Gordon, you really make the song!
Tom

Thanks y’all for letting me ride with the posse. Goes well with our morning coffee...
Nice mix and tunes.
Gordon

TRACK LIST

Spitting Seeds

It's a fine poem, I especially like,
"How what you want and what you get
Are held in different hands."
Your meter is exemplary. It's so nice to read a poem written in proper meter.
...I like it. And I know there's an excellent poet in you which should be writing more.
—Dale P, Cowboy poet

That was a nice piece of work!
—Mike B, songwriter

I like the harmony on Down At Joe's.

Another Horse to Saddle

I Loved Your Poem!!!
—Andria K, Cowboy poet

I like the poem / story as far as subject and delivery, and it seems like one verse wants to be the chorus in a song.
I really like I'z and 'fi - like true pronunciation.
My only complaint is that it ended too soon - I wanted to hear another adventure before he headed for the "final roundup".
Keep up the good work!
Best,
J.J. Fraser, songwriter

San,
Great poem. Thanks for sharing.
—Bill Patterson, photographer

Enjoyed 'One more Horse...' a lot!
Lynn Kopelke, Cowboy Poet

Your rhyme and meter are impeccable! I can't remember saying those words, by the way.
Well done, young lady.
—Dale P, Cowboy poet

TRACK LIST

Wish You Were Here

Wow. I like it all. I like the ending with a flourish. I like the balance of vocals with instrumentals, and the killer instrumental break.
You've devoted a lot of work to making this track fabulous. Pretty amazing.
