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 influence 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?
