Does anybody know if these were released at the show, or only by Todd on his website?

I grabbed a red. I LOVE this print. Slater definitely seems to crush his Young prints. I didn't even know a blue existed until I saw one on ebay.

I saw it and thought it would go well near the Horkey True Grit as well... glad I was around my email when Slater sent the heads up. Didn't take long for this one to sell out.

drymount! I just moved this weekend and couldn't get internet hooked up until this morning. I just don't have any luck when it comes to Slater and Neil.

ISO Red.

Trivia: Some of the buffalo seen in the movie Dances With Wolves belonged to Neil Young.

A few of the lyrics from the song that inspired the print:

One day shots rang across the peaceful valley
God was crying tears that fell like rain
Before the railroad came from Kansas City
And the bullets hit the bison from the train
Shots rang across the peaceful valley
White man laid his foot upon the plain.

The wagon train rolled through the dusty canyon
The settlers full of wonder as they crossed
A gentle creek where two old oaks were standing
Before the west was won there was a cost
A rain of fire came down upon the wagons
A mother screamed and every soul was lost.

Change hit the country like a thunderstorm
Ancient rivers soon began to boil
People rushed like water to California
At first they came for gold and then for oil
Fortunes were made and lost in lifetimes
Mother earth took poison in her soil.

I don't remember to vote for AOTW too often, but I voted for this. I like the buffalo, the arrows, the mining tools, the drop of blood (or possibly rain/teardrop on the variant). And a great job on that radiant moon collage. Job well done, all around.

I just had to get the blue:
