A song written by Stan Jones which a lot of people would regard as the greatest cowboy/western song ever written. It is a stunning song and even when it's done as an instrumental it never seems to lose any of it's appeal. Without wishing to name drop, I actually asked Marty Robbins when he was in the UK in the 70's why he hadn't recorded 'Ghost Riders.' He told me he had recorded it but it hadn't come out as well as he would have liked and so it had stayed in the 'can.' He never saw it released and I believe I'm right in saying that it made it's debut on his great 'Long Long Ago' album which came out shortly after his death. Stan Jones by the way, never wrote another song of any note apart from a song called 'Ride Away' from John Wayne's 'The Searchers.' I don't suppose it mattered as the song must have made him a fortune and create an old age pension a lot of us would have liked!
