Concept album. Back in the late '60s and early '70s, country maverick James Talley wrote a song-cycle about the Hispanic people in New Mexico. Finally, those songs have been recorded, and they're paired with a coffee-table book of haunting, evocative photographs by Cavalliere Ketchum. Together, they are a stunning tableau of music and image, and a deeply rewarding experience for anyone prepared to open their eyes and ears to the Hispanic underclass of the Southwest. A 106-page book printed on art paper is included, 32 touching pictures by photograper Cavaliere Ketchum, faces and landscapes, framed by citations from those ordinary people. 30x30 cm format.
