Living Free

I posted this to accompany a post over at The Gnostic World of Candy Minx. This is Utah Phillips, from back in the Ray-Gun years, singing Railroading on the Great Divide, with commentary.

I love this piece. I hope Utah doesn't mind me posting it. Please buy all his CDs. He's a special guy and he deserves your support. This cut is from a fabulous album called Legends of Folk, featuring Utah, along with Spider John Koerner and Ramblin Jack Elliott, live in Minnisota, in 1990. Among the highlights are Ramblin Jack's performance of 912 Greens and Utah doing Hallelujah, I'm a Bum, as well as a scary little Spider John tune called Creepy John.

That was a very nice song.

Ramlin Jack must have some good travelling songs.
