This post was prompted by news of a tribute album to be released June 8th. Andrew Bird and My Morning Jacket, among others, lend their time and talent to pay homage to a true great in the creative world. From his best known work writing poetry for children, to his work for playboy, to his song writing, Shel Silverstein has had an impact on so many, including me. His positive message and always interesting delivery make him one of the most unique artists of the 20th century. Enjoy this touching moment with Johnny Cash and song to Shel's father.
