"Lost on the River (of Life)", Hank and Audrey Williams Duet, with Bouzouki-Like Mandolin Solo; "The Battle of Armageddon"- a Song for Greece



The "Lost on the River" duet was recorded on 22 December 1948.

The mandolin solo, played by Clyde Baum, sounds almost like a bouzouki solo:

Note on Clyde Baum, mandolinist


Compare the duet with Hank singing solo:

Tyler Durden:

"It was in May 2012, just around the time of the second Greek bailout, that Charles Dallara, who as head of the International Institute of Finance (IIF) spent months in Athens negotiating the largest ever sovereign debt restructuring, said that "the damage to the rest of Europe from Greece leaving the euro would be "somewhere between catastrophic and Armageddon."

Yanis Varoufakis:

“We constantly hear, ‘if you don’t sign on the dotted line there is going to be Armageddon’. My answer is ‘let it happen!’
