Originally published on Mon November 25, 2013 6:59 pm

Divided & United is the name of a new, two-disc collection of songs from the Civil War. The selections tell tales of fear, loneliness, exhaustion and triumph. All recordings featured on the album, which was produced by Randall Poster, are new takes on old songs; historian Sean Wilentz wrote the liner notes for the record.

The collection features lesser-known songs of the Civil War, some by a songwriter named Henry Clay Work. According to Wilentz, Work was a key member of a group of composers that wrote the history of the era through song.

Results? The Albums Everyone Can Love

A while back (a long while back), Bob Boilen and I were sitting around the office, chatting like we do about music and life, and got to wondering: Is it possible to come up with a top ten list of albums that everyone can agree on?

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Photosynthesis"

Photosynthesis

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hip Hop

LYRICS

Yo, yo listen up. I’m gonna tell you ‘bout the process of photosynthesis.

I’m a tall green plant sitting in the sun, absorbing nutrients and having fun! You may think it’s boring, you may think it’s lame, but I’m a plant and that’s my name. Now, how I got green that’s a story to tell. It’s my little friend called chlorophyll.
