Cool Music Site

If you like roots music--authentic country, blues, R& B, you'll want to check out the cool site from the Lost Highways record label. Their are some tunes that play automatically. Look for the artiest and song title scrolling above the "Lost Highway" logo. But if you want the really cool, vintage suff, click on the the jukebox in the lower right corner.

Featured on the jukebox are tunes from Night Train to Nashville, a two-CD set which preserves the rich but fogotten history of Nashville as a blues and r&b city from 1945-1970. The CD--and a two-alubum LP--were issue in conjunction with March of 2004 launching of the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum exhibition Night Train to Nashville. The exhibit runs for 21 months.
Train To Nashville: Music City Rhythm & Blues, 1945-1970

Here's what the review of the CD on ALL-Music says:

"a treasure-trove of hits, misses, rarities, and smoking grooves"

"connoisseurs will be delighted to find these sides, many of them on CD for the first time. However, the appeal of this collection should not be limited to aficionados, as virtually every track is crackling with energy, verve, and raw immediate soul. Sound is better than decent, the selection is impeccable, and the track notes by Michael Gray are top-notch."
