Album Notes
Since the release of the single Little Joe by Artese N' Toad, fans have been waiting for a new album from the Pennsylvania duo. Well, wait no longer. Artese N' Toad have pulled into the station with a brand new album full of songs about trains that remain true to their traditional Americana roots.
Little Joe is at the controls on this train, anchoring a solid collection of ten new offerings from the tunesmiths who have recorded fan favorites Christmas Train and Daddy's Old Train Box. Artese 'N Toad are at their best when telling a story in classic style, and that is exactly what they have done on Little Joe. Wanted Old Toy Trains is also another very strong cut on this album, and certain to be released as a single. Even when the boys experiment and expand their style, they still come through with extremely likable songs, such as Voodoo Train and 34 Minutes. On Voodoo Train, they have captured the feeling and sound of some of the great old single Carnival by 1970's super group, The Band. 34 Minutes, while less rustic than most of the album, is none the less a terrific cut. Artese N' Toad never stray far however, and finish up the album with the extremely strong Hobo's Lament.
As always, the key to their success is found in a dedication to strong lyrics, a demand for second to none performances by the musicians, and an ability to keep everyone involved in the project on the same wavelength musically. Artese N' Toad have earned the trust of their fans with good reason, and they keep that trust by continuing to remain true to the Americana sound, and true to the fans that have supported them through the years.

Michael Hyatt of KXCI writes....

It's great to have another compilation devoted to train songs to play on my radio show ROUTE 66. Train buffs and music lovers alike will enjoy this batch, especially "Circus Train," which tells the story of how a tragic train wreck nearly derailed the circus, although just for one show. Just about every kid who had a train set will respond to the nostalgia of "Wanted Old Toy Trains." A cowboy and a hobo meet during the fine country arrangement "last Train Ride." Other highlights include "When Angels Ride Trains" and "Little Joe."
