Ghost Riders In The Sky – A song written and first recorded by Stan Jones in 1948.  It was based on an

                                           old Native American story told to him when he was 12 years old by an old

                                             Apache. In 1949 it was recorded by Burl Ives, Vaughn Monroe, Bing Crosby,

                                             Peggy Lee, The Sons of the Pioneers, Spike Jones, and Gene Autry.  This song

                                             was recorded nearly 150 times since then by a very diverse list of artists

                                             including: Kay Starr, Marty Robbins, Tom Jones, Elvis, Jonny Cash, The Blues

                                             Brothers, Concrete Blond, and Dean Martin.  There have also been many

                                             instrumental versions recorded by Lawrence Welk And His Orchestra, The

                                             Ramrods, The Ventures, Roy Clark, The Spotnicks (a Swedish rock group),

                                             and Duane Eddy. I have 12 versions on my I-Pad.

    Ghost Of A Texas Ladies' Man - Concrete Blonde (Walking In London album) 1992

                                                       Johnette Napolitano is the heart and soul of this group, which is not surprising since she is both the lead 

                                                       vocalist and songwriter.  Her voice is what makes it all work.  This particular song was also released as a 

                                                       single.

    Let My Guitar Do The Talking - Guitar Shorty (Blues Guitar album) 2004

                                                        This 70 year old blues singer was a great influence to Buddy Guy and Jimi Hendrix, especially the amazing sounds that he could coax out of his guitar and still be doing somersaults, back flips and standing on his head at the same time.  Shorty actually had family ties with Jimi at one time when he married his half sister.

    The One I Love - David Gray (Life In Slow Motion album) 2005

                                                   Surprisingly enough this song is of a mortally wounded soldier who, instead of mourning in his                                                         last moments of life, decides to focus on thinking of the one he loves.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
