There’s a village, hidden deep in the valley

Dinosauric Preception Roadmap Blues No. 22

Story songs in the fifties didn’t get any better than this: cradle to grave in under three minutes. And the Browns’ plaintive Arkansas harmonies put this little saga across with such gentle power that, though I’ve probably listened to this hundreds and hundreds of times since it first came out, it turns my insides into a quivering mass of ecto-emotion every time I hear it.
