Full Description

A career-spanning collection of the finest honky tonk, country, and Western Swing tunes from Texas country legend Wayne “The Train” Hancock, pressed for our 25th anniversary. This is the first time these songs have appeared on vinyl—originally recorded and released with Bloodshot Records on albums from Wayne's first decade in the Bloodshot stable: A-Town Blues (2001), South Austin Sessions EP (2001), Swing Time (2003), Hard Headed Woman: A Celebration of Wanda Jackson (2004), Tulsa (2006), and Viper of Melody (2009), including Wayne's signature road dog anthem "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs."

When he's passing thru your town—and that day WILL come—make him feel welcome.

Songs of the romance of the road, the grind, the drunks, the miles and the run-ins with Johnny Law.

Full of band call outs and joyous, pure musicianship
