Re: Crank up the Victrola again

Enjoyed an astonishingly good performance by a local country-western band at the the county fair on Monday,  so somehow I'm in the mood for more (I'm actually not a big fan of the genre, but the best of it is unequivocally  great, great stuff).  Here's a marvellous story-song by the late, tragic gen...
