Ski Songs

Elektra, 1959

By the late '50s Bob was living in Aspen and doing a lot of skiing. At some point he got together with three women who worked at the Denver Post and set out to write a musical all about skiing. Though he admitted to thinking it kind of a sophomoric venture, he was proud that out of the project came a couple really good songs which are included on Ski Songs - In This White World and What'll We Do. Bob continues the practice of using some of the finest session players on bass, banjo and electric guitar, and although Ski Songs is not really folk, his roots are most evident.

Note: If you look around at Amazon or Itunes, ignore the other, possibly cheaper album of Ski Songs; I don't know where it came from, but the recordings are different and don't sound as good.
