Bat Goddess, "Ain't No More Cane on this Brazos" can be found on the CMT's "Singin Our Mind" album - probably my favorite of the dozen albums they released over the years. It's usually available on Ebay for a very reasonable price; seems the bids don't go too high unless John Denver's in the lineup.

BobP, I agree that the CMT's achievements are under-recognized. They went out on a number of limbs in performing and recording material containing strong social statements ("The John Birch Society," "Alma Mater," "Twelve Days," "The Ides of Texas," "Barry's Boys," and even "Blowin in the Wind" - yes, they recorded it first! - to name a few). For their trouble, they were banned from some radio stations and wound up never having a "hit" single from which people might remember them. They were extremely talented singers whose harmonies and vocal arrangements couldn't be touched by the more "popular" folk trios. Yet, today they are best known as the group where John Denver got his start, when they're remembered at all. They deserve better.
