The Year of the Cow

Sam Russell & the Harborrats

“The Year of the Cow” is the sixth release of Sam Russell's Blue Moon Bible project, an ongoing series of 8 albums with 8 songs apiece inspired by" The Odyssey" and James Joyce's "Ulysses." (hah just kinding, mostly).

"The Year of the Cow" is the most atypical of The Blue Moon Bible albums in being primarily acoustic, hushed and serene as a counterpoint to the preceding albums of the project. Recorded in musically-stripped fashion so there's nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, "The Year of the Cow" chases the elusive magic of Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" and Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks" to the inevitable endpoint of fully personal and confessional revelations.
