Snow on the Tracks
2008 release. Thanks to his career-making 1950 hits 'I'm Movin' On' and 'The Golden Rocket', the Nova Scotia-born Country singer Hank Snow has always been associated with railroads and 'traveling' songs. This collection gathers nearly every track from Snow's two popular RCA Victor albums of train songs: Railroad Man (1963) and Tracks And Trains (1971). Many are beloved railroad evergreens: some dating back to the 1800s, others hailing from Country Music's golden era. Even Glenn Miller's 'Chattanooga Choo Choo' and Steve Goodman's 'The City of New Orleans' get the distinctive Snow treatment. The seldom-reissued stereo versions of 'I'm Movin' On' and 'The Golden Rocket' are here, along with rare gems culled from the singer's '60s and '70s LPs. Bear Family.
