MP3: Sparklehorse – “Dark As A Dungeon”
I just stumbled across this on the Sparklehorse site. It’s from a tribute CD to Johnny Cash from MOJO Magazine back in April 2006. Merle Travis wrote it, but Cash popularized it by featuring it on his live At Folsom Prison album.
So consider this a belated birthday celebration to the Man in Black. I’ve got some strong opinions about the release of American VI: Ain’t No Grave, but I’m keeping them to myself for now.

this just in: Mark Linkous, main man of Sparklehorse, has died from an apparent suicide. That’s some sad, sad stuff. Talented guy. RIP
That’s terrible. New York Times says, “He shot himself in the heart in an alley outside a friend’s home.”
Good Morning Spider is one of my favorite albums of the 90s.
