    Good choice. It’s early for me but I have a feeling I’ll wander over to Youtube next.

    In the spirit of Woody Guthrie – great stuff. Thanks.

    How do you like the album? I’ve been thinking of picking it up or slapping it on my Christmas list.
    Ry’s music’s been all over the place for the past decade or so. I used to buy his stuff automatically but now have become a bit more selective.

      John,
      I like the album though I am still more partial to the younger Ry music, but I’m thinking it would make a great stocking stuffer!

    Hi,
    Not visited your blog for some time now!! Been a busy year, but, … wow, this is great. Just the other day I was chatting with a friend about “where are the 21st century protest songs? Who’s singing about the economic, and moral, crisis we’re living?”. Thanks for offering this answer!

      Welcome Back, Brian!

      After I first heard this, I knew it demanded posting, and you’re right about the dearth of protest songs.

      PP&M and Joan could be counted on in the old days, but I’m glad Ry took it on.

        Until now it never came to my mind that Madonnas “Material Girl” could be a new protest song 😉
        Sean Lennon and Rufus Wainwright at Occupy Wall Street

    Birgit,
    I would never have thought it a protest song either. The, “I’m a material girl,” throws me as she is part of the material world, not opposed to it.

    I’ll have to give that one some thought.
