    Remarkable! The perfect gift for anyone!

    This 2-CD biography of Mark Twain is unlike anything you've ever heard. Part story, part song, the album chronicles Twain's life with Clint Eastwood as Twain, Jimmy Buffett playing Huckleberry Finn, and the voice of Prairie Home Companion - Garrison Keillor - narrating. There is a small passage of Twain's daughter played by Angela Lovell. Excerpts by Twain tell his life story with perfectly selected songs to correspond with each. Emmylou Harris opens with a song about Halley's comet, which was visible when Twain was born and later when he died. Ricky Skaggs sings the closing song, "Comet Ride," which sums up Twain's life. Every word and every song is simply perfect. The music is flawless and includes Sheryl Crow and Brad Paisley among others. I loved listening to the story and each song really added to the overall narrative. This is a brilliant way to illustrate a writer's life - using his actual words and then playing a song that goes with that particular aspect. I have to confess that I cried twice. Twain's life did have some heartaches. But I also laughed and enjoyed the lighter moments. I received this as a gift and can't wait to share it with others. Also, it comes with a beautiful book attached that includes stories, lyrics and amazing pictures. This should win a stack of Grammy awards. It is my favorite CD!
