Album Notes
This trio of seasoned musicians has been mining the history of transportation in America for almost ten years. This new collection of songs evokes a full set of human conditions. From the excitement of youthful discovery to the tragedy of loneliness in a fast moving boxcar of unknown destination. Wandering around the country....searching. But it's not all trains all the time, there's also trucks and cars and a fair amount of walking.

Dedicated to the memory of all those who played a role in America's growth through railroading. And to all who hold out the vision of a vibrant American railroad future.

"Put The Track Back" - Into Your CD Player!
A fine freshman effort from the (almost) legendary Connecticut band The Electric Trains, "Put The Track Back" is bound to please fans of American roots music, Folk, Bluegrass, and acoustic music. Containing nine original train and travel songs, along with a cover of Bob Dylan's "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry", a rousing cover of the Tom Petty mega-hit "Runnin' Down A Dream" along with a fine rendition of the traditional tune "Good Mornin' Mr. Railroad Man" this album will make you smile. Well recorded, with close harmonies and some really fine pickin', "Put The Track Back" is a great car CD for those long trips where you need something to tap your feet to. I'm looking forward to more from the boys, and urge anyone who gets a chance to see them live to not miss it. it's just fun - and what better recommendation can I make? Buy this CD NOW!
