Here is another great one from Prairie Home Companion. Somber lyrics and theme, but what energy in the performance by The Avett Brothers!

True Sadness . . .

Thanks again for Gretchen Peters' cover of Tricia's song, "On A Bus To St. Cloud," on the other thread.

A bit somber, in keeping with the theme on this thread, but really fine music!

Happy Fourth of July.

Peter

Thanks Brian for the Townes Van Zandt song on the other thread. What a talent -- left us at too young of an age!

I see he wrote Pancho and Lefty, which I think of as a road song, albeit a more sobering one.

Peter


"Living on the road my friend,
Was gonna keep you free and clean
And now you wear your skin like iron,
And your breath as hard as kerosene."






Nice cover and interview with Emmy Lou Harris and Willie, with TVZ sneaking in at 2:42!

Yes Peter Towns was tortured soul for sure, if you haven't seen the documentary about his life "Be Here to Love Me" it is well worth the watch. In my opinion his best recording of Pancho & Lefty was live at The Old Quarter in Houston.

Thanks Brian.

Here is a nice live cover of Kate Wolf's amazing tune, Across The Great Divide, live with Nancy Griffiths and Emmylou Harris, plus Nina Gerber and Pete Kennedy on guitar. Kate is another talent who left us too young!

"Life is short, shorter for some than others . . . " quoting Gus [Robert Duvall] from Lonesome Dove. [See Post #30 on the OTRA I thread for more LD stuff.]

Too somber? Nah!

Cheers,

Peter





Kate's original is here:

Never knew this was a TVZ tune -- Tecumseh Valley!

Another cheerful number . . .

Wow thanks Peter, Nancy Griffith is one of my favorites and I have the Other Voices Other Rooms CD. My Townes collection is extensive, I probably have it all.
I am leaving for NM within the hour here, will be going over Raton Pass and up into Trinidad. I'll be reminded of another TVZ favorite;

Nice one, have a great trip. What takes you to Trinidad if I may ask? Always looking for places to stop.

Researching my genealogy. My ancestors settled the New Mexico Territory starting in 1605 when my 8th great grandfather Francisco de Madrid came up from Spain. He was 10 years old and working on a Spanish military wagon. My great grandfather Manual Sandoval built a church in Chacon, Mora County, then known as el Rito de Agua Negro, in 1879. The church is still there, although rebuilt in 1920. We will attend on Sunday morning.

My great grandfather ran freight through the Raton pass from Trinidad with horse drawn wagons.

Safe travels . . .

In honor of your ancestors Brian. Hope the trip is going well.

Thanks FAN for this fine work.

Thanks to CruizinDux Bob for the reminder of Creedence Clearwater Revival with Stuck in Lodi on the OTRA I channel.

This more somber tune from CCR takes one back . . .
