January 22….Cactus Theater presents: Willis Alan Ramsey -
Over 40 years after the release of his wildly influential self-titled album on Leon Russell’s seminal Shelter Records, Willis Alan Ramsey returns to touring in advance of a long-anticipated follow-up. Ramsey’s debut in 1972 earned scores of accolades from artists ranging from The Allman Brothers to Shawn Colvin. The album was mined by many artists for their own projects and performances, including Jimmy Buffett (“Ballad of Spider John”), Jimmie Dale Gilmore (“Goodbye Old Missoula”), Captain & Tennille (“Muskrat Love/Candlelight”), Jerry Jeff Walker (“Northeast Texas Women”), Waylon Jennings (“Satin Sheets”), New Grass Revival (“Watermelon Man”), and many more. Many of his other songs have received major critical acclaim, including Lyle Lovett’s recordings of “Sleepwalkin’ ” , “North Dakota” and “That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas)”, cowritten with his wife, Alison Rogers, as well as Eric Clapton’s recording of Willis’ “Positively”. “His cozy, orderly, tiny-detail songs express a willful turnabout from hippie chaos, a visceral reaction particular to the early 1970s,” wrote Ben Ratliff for The New York Times. “His songs are sweet, emotionally guarded and often musically complex, fitting strains of melody together that seem as if they ought not connect, expertly using rhythmic displacement as the words and chords unspool…. Perfection is terrifying, and some of these songs felt spooky.” “I learned every song off his record. I went to see him every time he played, got tennis shoes like his. I wanted to be Willis Alan Ramsey.”—Lyle Lovett. Please contact the box office at 806-762-3233 to reserve tickets. Reserved seating. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; 8 p.m.
