An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story

(Blue Corn)

Award-winning documentary An Unreal Dream focuses on the unjust conviction of Williamson County's Michael Morton for the murder of his wife. The soundtrack, including songs not in the film but inspired by it, comes from guitarists Rich Brotherton and Chuck Pinnell. Their haunting instrumental work combined with traditional prison songs and spirituals – sung by Slaid Cleaves, Eliza Gilkyson, Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, and more – makes for an engrossing listen. ***.5
