Train Time - 27 Blues Songs About Trains and Train
Traditionally, there has always been a profound love affair between trains
and roots music, as blues developed as a serious musical genre, during
the 1920s and 30s, many of its pioneers travelled from city to city, gig to
gig, by hopping aboard moving freight trains
Their hoboing/rambling 'adventures' gradually became absorbed into their songs,
along with metaphors and descriptive phrases like "riding the rails", "side-tracked",
"derailed", "living on the right tracks", "blowing your stack", etc.
This compilation presents twenty- six blues/ R&B legends, ranging in fame,
importance and infuence from Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James,
Tiny Bradshaw (who appears twice), Big Bill Broonzy, Lightnin' Hopkins, etc., to
lesser-known, mere mortals like Gabriel Brown, Silver Crooks, Willie Love, Soldier
Boy Houston, Cousin Leroy, Willie Love and many more.
The songs themselves include classic numbers like 'Mystery Train', 'The Train
Kept A-Rollin'', 'Mean Old Train', 'South Bound Train' and 'Train Fare Home'.
