Jack Gladstone - Tappin' the Earth's Backbone (CD)
Music CD by Jack Gladstone, 15 tracks.
The storysongs spring from the eastern slope of the Rockies bordering the Blackfeet Indian reservation. A somber highlight is the haunting Sometimes Eagles, a ballad of heroism, sacrifice, and tragedy stemming from aerial combat over Nazi Germany in WWII. Tappin' the Earth's Backbone is a phrase that, according to Jack, can be interpreted several ways. “We tap the Earth when we walk and dance. We tap into something for deeper understanding. Tappin’ the Earth's Backbone implies we are reaching for a deeper awareness of our being -- physically, emotionally, and spiritually.”
