Posted - 18/04/2012 : 14:31:41 I was asked to supply a Train songs playlist to an American blog that ended up being not quite what I thought it was. Which, dang it, was a problem 'cause I was rather pleased with how it played. Not Bob standard of course, but here they are:
Detective - Train That Never Ends Nick Cave O Children Elbow - Station Approach Robyn Hitchcock I Often Dream of Trains Half Man Half Biscuit Time Flies By (When Youre A Driver Of A Train) Ray Wylie Hubbard Train Yard Seasick Steve & The Level Devils Hobo Blues Amanda Shires When You Need A Train It Never Comes Hugh Masekela Stimela Jimmy Smith Gwon Train Robert Earl Keen Whenever Kindness Fails

I'm sure there are many, many, more but I love all these and they just popped into my head!
Posted - 18/04/2012 : 20:01:25 ooo, thanks much for the Utube link. Such playing! Vocals didn't do much for me, though.
Gave a re-listen to Highwaymen too and I get the appeal but I have a bugaboo about that era when they turned country songs into production numbers. Like those early Townes albums.

Someone else contributing to that blog had already picked Desperados, damn them. Do you prefer Clark's David Alan Coe's or Jerry Jeff Walker's version (or another)?
Posted - 18/04/2012 : 18:54:15 Guy Clark - Desperadoes Waiting for a Train Wille Nelson - City of New Orleans Doobie Brothers - Long Train Running Mystery Train - Elvis (there's a great cover knocking about by Chet Atkins and Stanley Jordan)
