Outstanding. Best track I've seen of that song. Audio crystal clear with as good a mix as anyone could ask for.

Read an article Sting wrote for Men's Journal, years ago, about taking his teenage son to Bhutan, in the Himalayas. What a modest, down to earth, family centered, guy?!

This musical arrangement reminds me of a number of songs in the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's album.

Acoustic roots? Yep. James Taylor always at, or near, the top of the list.

Great duet with Carly Simon. Close Your Eyes.



Up On The Roof.



One of the great songs of my generation: You've Got A Friend.

West Virginia bridge to be renamed Hazel Dickens Memorial Bridge
Posted on May 31, 2019 by Richard Thompson



The locally known Montcalm Bridge, carrying County Route 11 over the Bluestone River in Mercer County, West Virginia, is to be named the Hazel Dickens Memorial Bridge.

On March 9, 2019, the West Virginia legislature voted in favor of Senate Resolution 24, thus creating the Hazel Dickens Memorial Bridge. A dedication ceremony is to take place at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow, June 1, 2019, marking the anniversary of her birth in Montcalm in 1925.

Bill Archer, the county commissioner for Mercer County, West Virginia, shares this summary of what is planned for this dedication ceremony ….. .

“It will be a rather simple program with only recorded music. The recorded music will include four of Hazel’s songs, Mama’s Hand; Beyond the River Bend; West Virginia, My Home; and Hills of Galilee, from the Matewan [film] soundtrack.

I will also include a 1975 recording of When the Roses Bloom Again, by my late brother and I. He passed away in 1991 but, was dedicated to preserving old time music, and loved Hazel.

I will make some brief observations between the songs, and prior to playing West Virginia, My Home, I will read an essay that Ken Irwin [Rounder Records] sent me last week.

I hope to have Reverend Arnell Churchwell there to offer prayer.”



In honoring Dickens, an internationally renowned singer and songwriter, she will be remembered for her representation of the plight of miners and families of southern West Virginia, wherever in the world that she went.

As well as the long career of personal appearances, Dickens has a considerable catalog of original songs and outstanding recordings. Hazel made an appearance in the film Matewan, in the 1976 documentary Harlan County USA, and the film of her life, Hazel Dickens: It’s Hard to Tell the Singer from the Song (Appalshop, Inc., 2001).

Dickens passed on April 22, 2011, at the age of 85. She was laid to rest in Roselawn Cemetery in neighbouring Princeton.

Hazel Dickens, with sometime singing and recording partner Alice Gerrard, was inducted in the IBMA Hall of Fame in 2017.

I've been listening to Dream Syndicate's new album that just dropped in May. Glad to see they still have it after 37 years. Their first album back in 1982 is fantastic, and was a forerunner of the Paisley Underground. By the time I discovered them in high school they broke up!
