Among The Possessions Of An Outlaw Of A Low-Class Kind. . .

I remember the first time in 1985 that I heard the High Country Snows record. I was amazed at the new direction Dan was going and bought a copy as soon as I could. It is listed as one of my “Top 10 Favorite Albums”

About that time, a new invention called the CD player was introduced and I was an early adapter back in the days when there were only a dozen or so CD titles to select from when you bought a machine.  

When I purchased my first player (a Pioneer) there were a few Depeche Mode CDs along with Dan and Tim’s “Twin Sons of Different Mothers’  The choice was easy.

When High Country Snows was released on CD, I quickly scoffed up a copy and marveled in the stereo separation and clarity, especially on the studio version of this song.

Herb Pederson’s banjo playing jumps out and gently hugs you and Dan’s vocals make you feel the outlaw’s pain.

Take your pick, Live or Studio.
