Asleep at the Wheel Remembers the Alamo

Thanks to Big Tex for this tip. I'm a big fan of Asleep at the Wheel, but I somehow missed this one:

1. Remember the Alamo
2. Green Leaves of Summer (featuring Tosca String Quartet)
3. Billy and the Low Ground
4. Ballad of the Alamo (featuring Tosca String Quartet)
5. Deguello
6. Ballad of Davy Crockett
7. Yellow Rose of Texas
8. New San Antonio Rose
9. Eighth of January
10. Across the Alley From the Alamo
11. Stout and High:
12. Don t Go There
13. Soldier s Joy

Along similar lines (well, at least it involves a tribute to a hero of the Alamo), you may recall that a while back I reviewed and highly recommended an effort by Colonial Williamsburg musician Dean Shostak titled Davy Crockett's Fiddle, which has become just about my favorite recording of Early American music.
1. Perry's Victory
2. Yankee Doodle
3. Amazing Grace
4. Speed The Plow
5. Hunters of Kentucky
6. Shenandoah
7. Turkey In The Straw
8. Haste To The Wedding
9. German Waltz
10. The President's March (Hail Columbia)
11. Home Sweet Home
12. Durang's Hornpipe / College Hornpipe
13. Jefferson And Liberty
14. Soldier's Joy / Bonaparte's Retreat
15. Duke of Kent Waltz
16. Cindy
17. The Girl I Left Behind Me / Leather Breeches
18. Rock of Ages
19. Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes
20. Star Spangled Banner
21. The Legend Of Davy Crockett
