Subject: RE: Rex has another new CD-Jack Thorpe Cowboy Songs
I wanted to let you all know that the trade copy of the book and CD are finished. Mark and I are quite happy that the Museum of New Mexico Press was willing to publish the project. It appears in their online catalog:
https://secure.nmsites.com/museumofnewmexico.org/order.cgi#book395
It has been sent to the printer and word is that it will be available in September. We are going to be doing a couple of fandagos in Santa Fe with the publisher. The special limited edition from the Palace Press is expected to be available in the Spring. More on this as it develops.
Sorry to be so scarce on the 'Cat. Lots going on. I was a "fishing guide" for the Neversummers Ranch at Rocky Mountain National Park for the year 1925 last week. Then my bluegrass group played for the Gospel Grass festival over the weekend. Yesterday I was a part of 17 artillery units firing in time to the 1812 Overture as performed by the Denver Municipal Band in Clement Park. Friday I depart for Bent's Old Fort in LaJunta and will be there over the weekend as the Army of the West prepares to invade Mexico in 1846. Hey you Souther Colorado folks, come see me. Just ask for Rex when you get to the fort. Folks will know where I am. I'll be at Kit Carson's Rayado at the Philmont Scout Ranch the following week. Then the College Rendezvous in Lost Park. Any of you wanting to know what Mark Gardner and I are up to, check out our website:

Hope to see some of you somewhere along the trail,

Rex
