Tom Russell's The Rose of Roscrae is the final album in a trilogy that began back in 1998 with The Man from God Knows Where. That recording explored his family's origins in Norway, Ireland, and the American West. He followed it with 2005's Hotwalker, which looked deeply at post-WWII American culture and mythologized sometimes marginal figures from the worlds of art, film, literature, and more. For Russell, no myth is larger than life; it is life itself.

The second phase of the Wars of the Roses was fought between Henry VI of Lancaster and Edward IV of York. Henry defeated the Yorkist army at the second Battle of St. Albans in 1461. Later that year, at the Battle of Towton, Edward slaughtered the Lancastrian army during a blinding snow storm. His victory gave him the crown by right of conquest, not by the death of the king. Parliament finally recognized Edward IV as king of England.

A songwriter, painter, essayist and thriller writer, Tom Russell could never be described as unambitious. Among his exceptional back catalogue of driving country, folk and sand-speckled Tex-Mex ballads, Russell has released a couple of albums – The Man From God Knows Where (1999) and Hotwalker (2005) – which used a combination of original compositions, spoken word, guest voices, refrains and folk recordings to explore aspects of America’s past. Russell is a hell of a songwriter, and here are several fantastic examples of his craft: Johnny Behind The Deuce, a rollicking country anthem; Rose Of Roscrae, a gloriously sentimental Irish ballad; He Wasn’t A Bad Kid, When He Was Sober, a brilliant rocker; the southern boogie of Doin’ Hard Time In Texas ; and the gospel love song Resurrection Mountain.
