Album Notes
As a small boy growing up in McComb, Mississippi I lived one block from the train tracks (THE OTHER SIDE OF THA TRACKS), and the high sound of the whistle, the low roar of the engine, and the jostling clanking movement of connecting boxcars were a symphony that excited, and inspired me.

When I got big enough I would hop the train, ride the rails, or some would say hobo from Burglund town to near downtown.
When I was about twelve years old the railroad police caught me hoboing, and that was my first case of "Train Rollin' Blues".
They took me to the jailhouse, and scared the mess out of me. My mother (Josie Jackson) came down to the station, and talked to the captain, and they let off with a warning.

That stopped my hoboing, but did not stop my love of trains, and the blues.

My paternal grandfather (Benjamin Joseph) work for the T and N Railroad Company, my maternal grandfather (Sammy Jackson) played guitar, harmonica, and sang the blues, and my maternal grandmother (Mary Jackson) loved country and gospel music.

I heard Britt Gully doing a Jimmie Rodgers tribute, and it awakened so many of those memories.
I went back, and listened to Jimmie Rodgers' originals, and they touched a deep place within my soul.

I humbly share these feelings with you.

The Soul Of Jimmie Rogers.
