"Tom Juravich's powerful collection of traditional and newer songs about the life of coal miners is a testament to the human ability to overcome dangerous working conditions, fatigue and low wages by banding together and working for a common goal. In "Breaker Boy", Juravich addresses the problems of child labor in the mines. "The Coal Tattoo" speaks to the danger and allure of mining life. This is a soundtrack to the award-winning film, "Out of Darkness, the Mine Worker's Story". Tom Juravich, who also works as a university professor when he is not recording or giving performances, has captured the traditions and aspirations of the American worker in this CD."
