Starlight on the Rails, and Other Songs
U. Utah Phillips
This is a wonderful songbook with a generous amount of biographical information about the songwriter. It contains melody notation, chords, and lyrics, of songs composed by the unique and treasured folksinger U. Utah Phillips, sometimes referred to as "The Golden Voice of the Great Southwest." Also Included are many song introductions transcribed from his live concerts. This book was organized by Utah Phillips' son Duncan Phillips, and without a doubt is the most authentic collection of songs and information on the life's work of this songwriter, storyteller, and politicized folk singer.
