Bruce Langhorne

Way back in 1969, country and folk artist Bruce Langhorne scored Peter Fonda's directorial debut "The Hired Hands," and the result was a beautiful and desolate sounding piece of Americana.  Country music has always carried with it an air of sadness, but Langhorne's score takes it to its lonesome, desperate, and anguished conclusion.  The fine folks at Scissor Tail Records are reissuing the album, which you can pre-order here, and God bless them for it.  Listen to "Opening" below.
