VARIOUS 'Treasury of American Railroad Songs, Ballads'

  • $13.50


This is a very nicely produced album of Railroad material with a generous, well-chosen 20 songs and very attractive graphics. All that would be needed to make it a gem is stronger picking & singing. The singing (by 7 or 8 different people) is pleasant enough but lacks the distinctive "edge" or character that could have elevated this to a higher musical level. Wayne Moore and Gib Guilbeau handle some of the more effective pieces here, but I for one sure would have preferred a bit less polite but tame over-production and a bit more raw power or soul.
