Originally released in 1997 to raise funds for medical bills when Ranier was diagnosed with brain cancer. He died in 1997. Released again as a tribute with four additional tracks. One of the best tribute albums I have heard. Great songs by the artists who were influenced by Ranier. Every track is a gem.

2: 5:36 slow to mid, Lucinda Williams
