Short Hut today; blame the Spurs/Lakers game (GODDAMMIT!), an acting piece I'm trying to get ready for Sunday and my continuous machinations toward finishing my moving in and spiffing up process. Hopefully I'll be done tomorrow and can look into shoehorning some themes into this space. Meantime, here's a pretty sweet (if scantily clad) doubleplay:
Leadbelly and the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet - "Rock Island Line"
Purchase "Alabama Bound" from Amazon
Ledbetter's "Songwriter Hall of Fame" listing
Some background on the history of the song.
The Lead Belly Page
Johnny Cash - "Rock Island Line"
Buy "The Essential Johnny Cash: 1955-83" from Amazon
Rarely has the word "essential" been so appropriately used.
Buy posters of Rock Island Trains
