Thanks Andy, that did the trick.  

I also added some configuration to change the colors to be more high
contrast (it defaulted to a neon-green, which was hard to see).  So in the
interests of helping others, here is my final .emacs shell-mode
configuration:

(setq ansi-color-names-vector ; better contrast colors
      ["black" "red4" "green4" "yellow4"
       "blue3" "magenta4" "cyan4" "white"])

(add-hook 'shell-mode-hook 'ansi-color-for-comint-mode-on)


Thanks to all who responded,
Brad
