Freight Train Boogie

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
It's kind of a toss-up as to whether this or the German When They Let the Hammer Fall is the best compilation of the Delmore Brothers work from the late '40s and early '50s. When They Let the Hammer Fall is more raucous and up-tempo; the 20-track Freight Train Boogie, though, has more variety.
