Sparky & Rhonda Rucker

 

continued

The last track on the album combines two songs about the sinking of the Titanic and one old gospel tune into a memorial that is heart-stopping in its simplicity. When I was done weeping, I thought about all the millions of dollars spent on that movie a few years back, the not-to-scale ships that were built, the thousands of actors and extras, the computers and technicians and costume designers and lawyers and Celine Dion. And I'm just not sure that it was any more powerful than two people singing three old songs for just over six minutes.    (end of article)
