Album Notes
For the past six years, Johnny Maddox has spent his summers in the old-west town of Durango, Colorado. Durango is a town close to the heart of the Old West. It has Indians from the neighboring Navajo nations, and cowboys from the local ranches. In honor of the these spirits of the West, Johnny plays piano solos in a program of Cowboy and Indian songs, with a tango, some flappers, and an extra waltz thrown in for slow dancing.

This CD is part of a three CD set of Johnny's solo sessions: Back Home in Tennessee, Cowboys and Indians and Where the Southern Crosses the Yellow Dog. Each CD includes a 16-page booklet featuring full color reproductions of original artwork covers of the featured songs along with histories, backgrounds and stories on each song.

Johnny Maddox was already America's number one jukebox artist when in 1954 he recorded the first all-piano record in history, "The Crazy Otto Medley". It spent 14 weeks at the top of the charts, and became the first ragtime record to sell over 1,000,000 copies, eventually selling over 2,000,000. An accomplished ragtime piano player and musicologist, Johnny even has his own star on Hollywood Boulevard, right next to Will Rogers.

Johnny Maddox was born on August 4, 1927 in Gallatin, Tennessee. Johnny's love of ragtime and early American music has led him to amass a collection of over 30,000 78rpm records, wax cylinders and piano rolls. His sheet music collection is conservatively estimated at 200,000 pieces, 3,000 of which he knows by heart.

Key Selling Points:

* Johnny Maddox has recorded 50 albums and 87 singles - 9 gold singles - with record sales of over 11,000,000.

* Johnny knew and played with most of the leading Ragtime artists as well as many of the major artists of the 50's including: Patsy Cline, Eddie Arnold, W. C. Handy, and Joe Jordan.

* First major release in 30 years

Hard to find old West Piano music
This was exactly what I was looking for. Perfect for late 1800's themes.

Ellis Carrter

This is saloon piano music...western style
This CD is western saloon music (western style)played very well. It sounds even better with beer.


Cowboy & Indians
I bought this CD for my 8-yr-old grandson who has taken piano lessons for three years. He asked me to find him a CD with old piano music. I searched and searched and finally found it here. He loves it and said it was just what he wanted. I like to too. Thanks so much.

I needed some ragtime music for a cookoff my company is having this weekend. Our theme is Wild West Saloon. I wanted this type of music and was having a hard time finding it. Thanks, it is perfect!!!

I was having a very hard time looking for old west music until I ran across your CD. Perfect!! When I close my eyes I can envision a saloon with the roudy cowboy crowd and the gamblers. Its exactly what I wanted. Thanks!

Great 1800's saloon music
Very lively and catchy piano playing. It's perfect for a recreation of an 1800's saloon.
