“The Year of the Cow” is the sixth release of Sam Russel'sl Blue Moon Bible project, an ongoing series of 8 albums with 8 songs apiece, with styles ranging all over the Americana map from rock n’ roll, soul, country and gospel to doo-wop, punk and funk. "the Year of the Cow" is unique in The Blue Moon Bible series in that it solely concentrates on folk and country music for overall musical style.
The Blue Moon Bible albums together tell one big story of love stumbled upon then lost and found over and over again, with different characters “portrayed” by Sam and his fellow Harborrat singers.
