was hard for me. I'm in my early 20's and I've seen him once at the first Ramble at the Ryman, but one of my goals in life was to make it up to NY to see one of his real Midnight Rambles in the barn.
To stay on topic of the war, Anyone interested in the war who likes good music should absolutely purchase White Mansions. This is a compilation of artists such as Eric Clapton, Waylon Jennings, Steve Cash, Jessi Colter and John Dillon performing songs written by Paul Kennerley. Its a concept album about people during the civil war. It has been regularly finding its way on my turntable ever since I got it.
Kennerley put out an equally excellent sequel called The Legend of Jesse James. Levon Helm plays Jesse James, Johnny Cash plays Frank James, Charlie Daniels plays Cole Younger, EmmyLou Harris plays Jesse's wife Zerelda. It also has Clapton on guitar, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell and Albert Lee... The first track Ride of the Redlegs is epic.
