NYC Lincoln Memorial Diary

Op-Archive: Lincoln Memorial Diary
This is a fascinating piece of history, which was documented by this nameless reporter. He recorded in his diary the makeshift signs posted by mourners in the shop windows of New York City after the tragic assassination of our greatest president - Abraham Lincoln.

Duke Ellington - Take The "A" Train (Live) [Lyrics]
I was listening to Take The "A" Train by Clifford Brown and Max Roach in my car CD player and I wondered what versions of this classic song were available on YouTube.  I liked this one best by the great Duke Ellington.  I think this is Duke with his quartet, but I'm not sure.  I'm also not sure of the date of the recording.

Jimi Hendrix - Hear My Train A Comin' (Acoustic) [Lyrics]
While searching for Train, I found this little acoustical gem by Mr. Hendrix.  I wish he would have recorded more non-electric blues numbers like this.

Tom Waits - Downtown Train - 1985 [Lyrics]

If there is any justice in this world, I think Stephen Colbert deserves an Emmy for this sketch below lampooning the absurd anti-gay marriage commercial "Gathering Storm".
