100 track collection celebrating the impact the railroad had on USA's population. The constant movement of people away and towards better or worse situations and the trains that got them there are a large part of the lyrical consciousness of all American Folk music. In this extensive Proper Records collection we have a cross-section of genres that perfectly illustrate the impact the railways had on the movement, sound, and consciousness of musicians from all strands of the Folk music of the USA. Tracks from household names such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley mingle with the obscure. Included are all the hallmarks of the series - a booklet filled with the "musical" story of the early American railroads, rare photos and discographical information.
