Dear friends and associates of Ian,

Some good news to share. Ian recently saw a new physician, Dr. Tom Gillis who is a voice specialist, to try and figure out why his voice was going away again. Dr. Gillis did a preliminary consultation last week and discovered a cyst on one of Ianís vocal cords. A biopsy was performed yesterday and the prognosis is excellent. No talking for 10 to 14 days, then c
omplete healing in about 6 weeks. We have also found a voice coach who specializes in rehab and, together, they hope to have Ian back in full singing mode by the first of the year.

Please keep Ian in your thoughts and prayers for a full recovery and Iím sure weíll see you down the road, sometime soon.

All the best,

Paul A. Mascioli

Wonderful news! I interviewed him back twenty years ago and he was such a gracious person. Love his cowboy albums.

Dear Friends & Associates of Ian,

I wanted to share my delight with you in the results of Ian’s recent voice surgery. The following note sums it up and is addressed to his new vocal coach, Katherine Ardo. Katherine is a Singing Voice Specialist based in Calgary, and associated with the Canadian Voice Care Foundation. She fast-tracked us towards Ian’s new voice specialist, Dr. Tom Gillis, who took swift action in removing a polyp from his vocal cord.

We are obviously in store for much more great music from Ian in 2013 and beyond.

Cheers,

Paul

Good morning Katherine,

Well, Ian called me last evening and I could hardly believe my ears. His voice hasn’t been that clear since before he fought a losing battle with that fateful rock ‘n roll sound system on Aug. 19, 2006. Ever since that day, he has sounded more like the Godfather than Ian. This is truly very exciting and I can hardly wait to hear how Ian’s singing voice rolls out in the New Year. He is beaming with anticipation!

All the very best,

Paul A. Mascioli

As most of you know my name is Vickie Mullen and Ian Tyson and I have been friends for about 25 years after first meeting in Elko. Like most friendships it has its ups and downs but supporting or trying to change each others choices has always been part of it.

When the "new voice" became a reality and was not going away I was very proud that Ian did not give up and continue to write. When he decided to produce and distribute his own product while in his mid-70's Hitching Post Supply (my company) was glad to help.

His friends and fans continued to support him through sell-out shows, buying books, music and DVDs to which he and I are very grateful. Now another phone call has come from my friend that has left me smiling but never speechless. He has had throat surgery and vocal lessons and sounds just wonderful. No more of the gritty, grainy, and more authentic voice the reviews wrote about the Raven Singer.

The new year will start with yet another voice for Ian. We have yet to hear what singing will be but great things are anticipated. I am over the moon, over the rainbow and just thrilled. In fact he did say I could stop gushing and going on about it. For a little longer he needs to rest his voice and work on his lessons but he just sounds incredible and very happy. So as many of us approach Thanksgiving this year I am giving thanks for yet another "new" voice for Ian.

Ian Tyson ★★★1/2
All The Good ‘Uns Vol. 2
Stony Plain
As he nears his 80th birthday in September, the legendary
Ian Tyson looks back with All The Good ‘Uns Vol. 2, a
generous selection of 19 songs from five albums recorded
between 1999 and 2012.
A Canadian native and rancher whose work has influenced
such artists as Neil Young and Tom Russell, Tyson
draws inspiration from the open land and the people who
worked it. “Jerry Ambler” and “Bob Fudge” are tributes to a
real-life rodeo champion and trail rider, respectively, a reflection
of his longtime interest in Cowboy culture. “Elko Blues –
The Roan Mare” is a shuffle with a loping beat that’s rooted
in the West. “Little High Plains Town” examines the collision
of tradition versus progress as change ultimately wins out.
Tyson blends country and folk in his music and has continued
to challenge himself. “Yellowhead to Yellowstone” recalls
a miniature symphony with its changes in musical
movements. Tyson’s version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,”
is wistful and stripped down with just a guitar and
bass, a fitting conclusion for this collection.
