This western tunesmith,  playing guitar and synthesizer, works creative  magic in combining  his music with a wide variety of themes.  Hear the secrets a time traveler might share with a circle of friends.

"I met a time traveler; a living ghost that somehow has been able to step back far into those lost yesterdays and bring them to us through his music.  If you have ever dreamed of tramping along on that last great  stampede or simply yearning for the life of a solitary prospector , then sit back and listen. His name is Gene Ralph and he has lived those lives in his music."   John Freeman

Beauty In The Feast

It was the year that said two-thousand
         On your calendars upon your walls.
       But far beyond this fearless computer age,
           I see clearly and recall...
    a savage past...Such a primitive time
            When herds of ancient beasts
      Grazed peacefully in such numbers,
                     There was
Beauty In The Feast.  
The man who sat on the ground in his tipi meditating on life and it's meaning, accepting the kinship of all creatures and acknowledging unity with the universe of things was infusing into his being  the true essence of civilization.  And when native man left off this form of development, his humanization was retarded in growth. 
                Chief Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux
