The concept album features classics of the western songbook by songwriters such as Cole Porter and Roy Rogers. "This album pays tribute to some of our favorite songs of the American West" according to Boats captain Isaac "Slowey" Stanford.

"This collection of tunes will take our listeners on a musical journey across the western deserts and beyond," continues Stanford. "There are classic cowboy songs like "Tumbling Tumbleweeds” and “Don’t Fence Me In”, and also a few surprise selections such as Duke Ellington's "Warm Valley."

The songs were all recorded to tape live in the studio in Northwest Philadelphia during a two day session at Retro City Studios where they made their first album Set Sail 10 years earlier. They are joined by Steve Stanislaw on vocals and Rob Curto on accordion.
