+1 on Promontory (also great to get you going in those first few hundred yards after you've just hoisted your pack on your back)

Man, I just found a three-hour Promontory loop on YOUTUBE.  Listening to it as I work is really nice.

Great thread.

Music sounds better in BIBE.

I actually have a playlist on my computer and all devices called Big Bend. It includes: Marty Robbins (El Paso), Merle Haggard, Crazy Heart soundtrack tunes, R.E.M. (Murmur), Emmy Lou Harris, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi John Hurt, the Stones, Dylan, The Orbans, Poco, Amos Lee, The Flying Burrito Bros, My Morning Jacket, Tom Petty, Gram Parsons, Lyle Lovett, Chris Isaak, John Hiat, The Pixies, Zeppelin, Beck... among others.

Sarcasm? 

A cat I play tennis with turned me onto both of those bands when he heard I liked Gram Parsons.  I listen to many different genres of music, but BIBE brings out the folk/country twangy side of my collection.

I found the Jeremiah Johnson soundtrack on Youtube.

Some say he's up there still - in the High Chisos.

Not sarcasm amigo - it's envy

Yes, it does.

The solitude. The alone time.  But, to be honest, I really only like to listen to music when I'm driving with Jeep doors off, the bikini top on (the Jeep), and the engine growling in the back ground whilst crawling over basketball sized boulders. After that, I just want to listen to what ever nature offers me.

Seems like when my son and I are in his Jeep we listen to Kings of Convenience. Or Avert Brothers. But as CG said, it's the quiet of the park that's the best 😀

I thought you were being sarcastic since those bands are from the late 60s /early 70s and today's 25 year olds have never even heard of them (I know because I work with kids this age).  To be honest, FBB and Poco are from a bit before 'my time,' but not by as much as you had speculated!  A part of me wants to say, "I wish," but in reality I'm just fine with where I'm at in life!   

Also: I liked the comments about the Handsome Family.  I really liked the tune used for True Detective season 1.  I can imagine that matching well with BIBE.  Kings of Convenience and the Avett bros too!

Doesn't necessarily remind me of Big Bend, but it sure gets me pumped once I get there.  Warning, this may be too much for some of you to handle..

Like someone posted earlier in this thread, to me it's something that I've listened to in the park that will pull up memories of the trip.
On my first trip out i was listening to my Chuck Mangione.  Now whenever it comes on again, I can't help but to get that feeling of heading west again. 
Now coming home on my last trip out, my Weird Al came up and we listened to it all the way home.  I don't think the same thing will happen with him.   :icon_smile:
