Compilation accompanied the film '' The Ballad of Rambling Jack '' made by Aiyana Elliot (daughter ). It starts out hard with a cover of '' Muleskinner Blues '' (J.Rodgers ), recorded on the Johnny Cash Show, where Jack Elliot holds a note for 30-some-odd seconds, as Jeremy Irion timed. It's all about folk music. There's a few cameos, like Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and there's some dialouge from the movie, containing a snip of former President Clinton, which leads to the-second-to- the-last song '' 1913 Massacre ''. '' Cup of Coffee '', an Elliot original, is truly one of the best, as it's life-lived. Elliot didn't get the name '' Ramblin' '' for nothing and as the movie portrays, a hard-luck was felt as a result by his family. You ought to see the movie and for Pete's sake, get the album.
