4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Dave Van Ronk's scarifying 'The Outcaste' and Ramblin'' Jack Elliott's 'The Sky Above And The Mud Below' that capture the sad, vivid realism of his best work."

Although Tom Russell remains a cult act, the folk-based singer-songwriter has had many well-known admirers. WOUNDED HEART OF AMERICA is a well-chosen compilation of covers of Russell's songs, including performances by Johnny Cash, Joe Ely, Iris DeMent, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, and Dave Van Ronk. Highlights include a spoken-word reading of Russell's "Stealing Electricity" by the renowned beat poet Lawrence Ferlingheti and four previously unreleased tracks by Russell himself.
