Age of Legend
Book Four of the Legends of
the First Empire
by Michael J. Sullivan
Wow, this series has been a powerhouse. Michael J. Sullivan knows how to tell a story, and as a result I've read just about everything he's put out (it's all really, really good - I usually read/listen to his books more than once.) This series has been a roller coaster, and because I've gotten to know the characters so well at this point, it's going to be a sad day when I finish the last book of this series. Highly recommended.
The original's good, but the acoustic set they did in NYC (below) is fantastic. I love the feel of the song, how it moves.
When you strip away all of the production that goes into a lot of recorded music, and still have it sound great, you're the real deal. That's these guys.
