Albert Morgan is a Pennsylvania miner, untrained as a musician, who recorded the song "Union Man" during a Library of Congress field recording trip. A folk music group called the Shoreliners later did a cover version of the tune, giving songwriting credits to Morgan but changing the title slightly to "U-Nee Man." The latter performance shows up on the first volume in the Work's Many Voices series of labor songs compilations issued by JEMF. Morgan's own performance can be heard on the Songs and Ballads of the Anthracite Miners CD.
