A Son Volt Tribute to Ralph Stanley for Endorsing Obama

Chip Shields

She's More to Be Pitied... A Stanley Brothers tune covered by the talented Jay Farrar and the original lineup of Son Volt from my hometown. Thanks Chris Lowe (see below) for bringing the endorsement to our attention.

Okay, now get out there and canvass...elect Merkley and beat back the Gordon Smith-Steve Doell slime machine and help expand the Oregon House Democrats majority!

    Thanks Liz. Have you ever heard this ram file from the Gumbo Pages?

    Chip. Does this mean you are actually from Belleville? Birthplace of the great Uncle Tupelo.

    Not quite Belleville, but St. Louis, where Uncle Tupelo was the local talent. Not far from Sauget...

    Oops. Was trying to embed a few tunes, but typepad won't let me in the comments section evidently.

    <h2>Yes, I own that album--and am also a Wilco fan. I didn't know you were from St. Louis--Chuck and I lived in Webster Groves for three years.</h2>
