Discovered  by Allman Brothers Band founding guitarist Duane Allman, the Jacksonville, Florida-based group COWBOY was introduced to Allmans producer Johnny Sandlin and a beautiful musical relationship was formed. Brimming with a laid back country gait and a Muscle Shoals vibe, the reissue of this 70’s treasure is a welcome prospect for fans of rock and roll genuine down-home music.

5’ll Getcha Ten, the second recording made by the group , is one of those unique albums obscured by the dusty winds of rock history — only to be unearthed years later to be celebrated and reintroduced to a new era of fans.   Revitalized, remastered and reintroduced, 5’ll Getcha Ten can now claim its rightful place as a standard of country-rock and a pillar of early 1970s songwriting.

While the appearances of legendary pianist and Allman Brothers Band alumni Check Leavell and band founder Duane Allaman increase the interest in Cowboy’s legacy, the true magic to be found is in the songwriting abilities of founding members Tommy Talton and Scott Boyer. There is a craftsmanship on display that illustrates just what attracted Allman to the songwriting duo. The hallmarks of the record are to be found in the relationships between sweet acoustic picking, spring water pedal steel, tightly woven harmonies and Leavell’s tasteful saloon piano which appears on over half of the albums tracks.
