His Starlight on the Rails: A Songbook CD box set is available for about $35 at Amazon and "other fine stores"...
I especially like the part where he says some guy named Kendall Morse, a sea captain from Maine, is the greatest folksinger who ever lived - or something like that. But anyhow, the "songbook" is four CD's full of songs, with Utah's explanations of the stories behind the songs. He said he put the songbook on a recording because the singers he knows don't read music.
