The power of You Tube delivers some very cool, historic Tony Trischka & SKYLINE videos
to you from TNN's Fire on the Mountain Show (circa 1982) and the 1987 Philadelphia Folk Festival


** We Believe in Happy Endings
      A great country duet by Mary Olive and I written by Nashville songwriter Bob McDill
      from the latest project with Mary Olive Smith
      Previous versions by Emmylou Harris with Earl Thomas Conley
      and The Dry Branch Fire Squad

** Emerald Eyes
      An original guitar instrumental with Skyline

** I'll Never Be Free
      A 'Sophisticated Country' duet with Mary Olive
      Originally recorded by Kay Starr & Tenn. Ernie Ford in 1950
      with the great Speedy West on steel guitar (but we've got Andy Gibson)
      written by B. Benjamin & G. Weiss

** You're Still On My Mind
      from George Jones, and the Byrd's "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album
      This one, written by Luke McDaniel, and the next 3
      bluesy Honky-Tonk numbers are from the
      Sheriff & the Goodtimer sessions

** Lost Highway
      A seminal Hank Williams tune

** Mind Your Own Business
      Another from Hank

** Sugar Moon
      A Bob Wills western swing tune I learned while
      playing with the great fiddler Tex Logan

** What You Don't Know
      A wonderful Jim Lauderdale song (Just right for librarians)
      from Silk City's 'Time' CD, with Rob Ickes on dobro

** Quiero Ser Tu Sombra
      "I Want To Be Your Shadow"
      A haunting & beautiful Mexican melody from the same disc
      Thanks to Bola Suriana for the inspiration

** Lonesome Wind Blues
      A bluegrass classic with Mary Olive

** To A Girl In Trouble
      A live cut from the MONROE DOCTRINE circa 1978
      more than likely from a gig in Jackson Hole, WY
      This was the band I was involved with from about '77 - '79
      This song, written by Syracuse, NY's John Cadley, features:
      me on guitar, Bill Millet - banjo, Greg Root - fiddle
      Wayne Beezley - mandolin & Mark Hembree - bass
      Thanks Bill for dredging this up and
      moving it from its cassette form to the modern era!

** I'll Be A Gambler
      More MODOC live at the Timberline Club,
      Evergreen, CO - Jan. 14, 1978
      This one's written by David Nichtern of "Midnight at the Oasis" fame

** Dark Hollow
      Still another live MODOC masterpiece of the same vintage
