Aragon Mill Video by David Eustice
The Red Clay Ramblers' recording is the soundtrack for a collage of band pics, Bobbie Thompson's drawings, and scenes of mill towns and workers.  Bobbie was Tommy Thompson's wife, and David is married to Tommy's daughter Jessie.

Mike Craver, Bill Hicks, Jim Watson and Joe Newberry
In the olden days before YouTube, these very amateur videos shot by your webgal with a digital camera at the shows were available for download from this site.  We still think they're fun and a way to share the band with our readers beyond still images.  The files are "WMV" format and play in Windows Media Player and Winamp for sure.
