And to add to that set of 3 is 'Leaving El Paso' by Tom Russell where he references the song and Feleena...

Hi Tony,
yes El Paso City always intrigued me - it was more spiritual than the other two.
Tom Russell's cowboy ballads were clearly influenced by Marty Robbins.

Thanks for that, Kush. How could I forget that when I have the cd?! It brings us nicely back to Tom Russell again.

Tony, Bev, Karren, Kush and all other 'other music' visitors, thank you and Merry Christmas!

Another Tom Russell, a live clip of The Light Beyond the Coyote Fence (which narrowly defeats The Last Time I saw Hank as my most played from Folk Hotel):

A Merry Christmas to you too, Diane, and thank you for the live clip. This Tom Russell and Katy Moffatt song takes me somewhere long ago and far away, although it seems like yesterday, to people who are no longer here. Bitter sweet.

Having seen my words, 'long ago and far away,' in my previous post they reminded me of a Harvey Andrews song with that title. Another sad song.

Long Ago And Far Away

Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings Happy Holidays to Tony, Diane and everyone else - us 'The Others' and also to 'The Main Ones' - I recall a Nicole Kidman movie by that name.

I came across this awesome Christmas song by Tom Russell that I had not heard before - Streetlights and Snow. As always he keeps it real ! A story about Joey Bones and Angel. TR is truly a 'worker in song' - he keeps churning out these great songs year after year (or I keep discovering these hidden gems year after year). I believe this is an outtake...
