• Railroad Man / Sings In Memory Of Jimmie Rodgers / Tracks & Trains / Jimmie Rodgers Story - Hank Snow

Hank Snow was one of country music's grand masters. Along with legends such as Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb and Eddy Arnold, he was one of the big post-war stars of Country Music. 

The four albums brought together for this double CD release present Hank Snow at his traditional best, covering titles from the Jimmie Rodgers songbook and tales of railroads and trains, both subjects dear to the singer's heart. Hank Snow Sings In Memory Of Jimmie Rodgers (1970) and The Jimmie Rodgers Story (1972) clearly show that the singer never lost the love for his idol's music.

It was probably Rodgers' persona as the 'Singing Brakeman' and songs like Waiting For A Train, that were an inspiration for Snow's contributions to the genre. Railroad Man (1963) and Tracks & Trains (1971) highlighted the fact that train songs always had links with traditional country music and these two albums collected songs that stretched over the decades.
