I just saw this for the first time. I was impressed by the sound of the piano at the end, It sounded like  the original, then saw it was Hargus Robbins. Then it hit me, he played the original piano at the end. Sounded the same. I was impressed by the steel player, that was close to the original too.

The first time I heard this song was by Carl Story, and My father had the Flatt and Scruggs version on 8-track, so I wore both them out. Then I heard this version and fell in love with it.

 Thanks Mr. Whittaker for the kind words. I was raised on bluegrass music. My father loved it and Jimmie Rogers The singing Brakeman. I like Bluegrass, Honkytonk and Rockabilly. Had a Flatt and Scruggs 8 track in the truck.

There is talk once again about the different generations, and how Generation X, the supposed slacker generation is growing old. I wrote an essay about this subject some 20 years ago. So let me preface this by saying that I ha...

My father took my sister and I to see this movie on Christmas Day 1973. That was the last time I saw it.

I was sitting and thinking yesterday, and it dawned on me that I have been in Yuma now for 40 years. I came in on a Trailway's bus with my grandmother from Indiana at 4 am on or about January 31, 1975. The first stop was Gary...

swinedance, his song, is about the Brasero program. So yes things have changed. The workers have more rights and better working conditions, they have had for the last 40 or so odd years. I know a few of these men who worked that program, and became citizens legally.

The early Dolly music is the best of her music. The pop stuff is ok, but I don't listen to it. This is the essence of Dolly right here. She writes like no other. I grew up on this music.

Actually there are many that came after this. For example, Meat Loaf's "Bat out of Hell" :U

I come from a card carrying union family. In the last 60 or so years there have been including me, 10 members of the last three generations in 10 different unions. So I am well aware of the history of unions. I have though, f...
