Subject: RE: Songs of the American Civil War
If you are interested in an excellent album of Civil War songs, I would recommend SONGS OF THE CIVIL WAR, produced by Jim Brown, Ken Burns and Don DeVito for Columbia. It has a variety of songs by different artists including Kathy Mattea, Waylon Jennings, Ronnie Gilbert, Kate & Anna McGarrigle et al. Kathy Mattea does a beautiful rendition of "Vacant Chair" which both the North and the South adopted. Regards to all, John
