3. "Mermaid Avenue" It's a great CD.
There are a half dozen songs on that CD that really stand out.

"Against the Law" comes to mind.

Bragg also has a song titled "No Power Without Accountability", it's VERY good.

4. I've had this song going through my head for weeks
I'm gonna tell all you fascists you may be surprised
The people in this world are getting organized
You're bound to lose, you fascists are bound to lose

Race hatred cannot stop us this one thing I know
Your poll tax and Jim Crow and greed have got to go
You're bound to lose, you fascists bound to lose

All of you fascists bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose
All of you fascists bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose
You're bound to lose! You fascists!
Bound to lose

People of every colour marching side by side
Marching 'cross these fields where a million fascists died
You're bound to lose, you fascists bound to lose

I'm going into this battle, and take my union gun
We'll end this world of slavery before this battle's won
You're bound to lose, you fascists bound to lose

5. I Love Woody...

...haven't listened to him for a long time, and have to admit I like the modernized versions of his songs. Ever read any of his books? Seeds of Man is great!@

7. Yep, "Seeds of Man" is a pretty thick book...


..I read Bound for Glory a long time ago. Did you know that when he was pretty young still, he wrote a book out by hand and put it in his little public library (forgot which town in Texas), but the copy got lost through time. Sad, huh? Would have loved to read that!!!
