Marty Stuart - The Making of Ghost Train

Biography

I came to Nashville from the land of Jimmie Rodgers, looking for a place, a place to belong inside the world of country music.

It was around 2:30 on the Thursday morning of Labor Day weekend 1972 when I first set foot in the city some refer to as the “Athens of the South.” I had ridden a Greyhound bus 430 miles from Philadelphia, Mississippi for what was supposed to be a ... Read more in Amazon's Marty Stuart Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 release, a traditional Country album from the Grammy-winning American music icon. With his 14th studio album, Stuart steadily continues to lead the charge in preserving the roots, culture and history of traditional Country music. ''What inspires me now, is traditional Country music,'' says Stuart. ''It's the music I most cherish, the culture in which I was raised. It's the bedrock upon which the empire of Country music is built, the empowering force that provides this genre with lasting credibility. It's beyond trends and it's timeless. With all that being said, I found traditional Country music to be on the verge of extinction. It's too precious to let slip away. I wanted to attempt to write a new chapter.''

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's Another Classic From Marty August 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Marty Stuart is best when left to his own devices. Since the "no hat" days of the early nineties, Marty has taken control of his records, subsequently producing the masterpiece, "The Pilgrim", as well as classics, including "Country Music" and "Badlands".

I suspect even those who aren't fans of true (or traditional) country music can still appreciate that Marty is the "curator" of the legacy.

This album is no exception.

From the opening track, "Branded", with its sly homage to Merle Haggard, including Roy Nichols-like guitar licks, to a remake of the 1965 Warner Mack hit, "The Bridge Washed Out", to a lovely duet with wife (and legend) Connie Smith, "I Run To You", the 1960's country music sound is alive and well, just a bit more bright and shiny.

Standout tracks on this album, in addition to the aforementioned, include, "A World Without You" (my favorite). This track, folks, cannot be mistaken for anything BUT country music in its truest form. Also here is an instrumental version of Ralph Mooney's "Crazy Arms", featuring Ralph himself on steel. "Hummingbyrd", too, is a nice, ringing instrumental. Marty and Ralph collaborated on "Little Heartbreaker", a bouncy ditty that features some Wynn Stewart-like steel guitar licks.

Not everything works, but the minor nits I have with this CD do nothing to detract from this superior effort by Marty.

Be forewarned: If your idea of country music is dirty dishwater that's lost most of its foam, you probably won't like Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions.)

If, on the other hand, you love music, and are able to discern between country music junkies and country music junk, you really can't go wrong surfing on over to Amazon and clicking the "buy" button.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stuart's "Train" Ride Not to be Missed August 24, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Prime Cuts: Branded, I Run to You (with Connie Smith), Drifting Apart

If Stuart is to be faulted, he's definitely not one to be faulted for being chary. Ever since he has left the major recording labels, he has had spread his trawl to encompass a plethora of genres: from his tribute to the Sioux American Indian culture ("Badlands") to his worshipful excursion to soulful Gospel ("Soul's Chapel") to his live bluegrassy experiment ("Live at the Ryman"). As far as Stuart is concerned, he is never constrained sonically by genres. This time round he isn't temerarious either. "Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions)" is a return back to tip back to the past -harkening back to the days where country music was melodically driven bolstered by heart rendering lyrics backed by a barricade of rustic instruments such as the banjo, fiddle, steel and guitar. In keeping with a rich heritage, these tracks were recorded in the historic setting of the legendary RCA B Studio where Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings, Eddy Arnold, Don Gibson, Donna Fargo and many other greats have had recorded there.

While Stuart has been known for his hillbilly rock, this disc uncharacteristically has a larger share of ballads. And those who have come to love Stuart's ballads will have much to rejoice here. A slice of brilliance comes with the Connie Smith's co-write "A World Without You" that is made even more gorgeous with the Jordanaire-esque backings. Stuart raises our social consciousness with the acoustic stripped down "Hard Working Man" where Stuart decries the fate of the blue collar in the midst of the today's faltering economy. "Drifting Apart" segues into some stone cold country moments: Stuart brings back those George Jones cry-in-the-beer saturated blues on this steel-laden ballad.

5.0 out of 5 stars MARTY STUART - GHOST TRAIN (THE STUDIO B SESSIONS) March 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Marty Stuart is not only a fantastic musician but as anyone who was lucky enough to hear his series of shows broadcast on Sirius/XM radio can tell you, he knows how to put together a show that is fun, entertaining, and chock full of great American music. The same can be said for his latest release GHOST TRAIN (THE STUDIO B SESSIONS). Here is true-blue country music the way it is supposed to sound, blazing bluegrass and rockabilly, heart-wrenching ballads, in other words everything you need to turn your own living room into that honky-tonk you used to love but which somehow got replaced by a fast-food franchise.
Along with The Fabulous Superlatives (drummer Harry Stinson, bassist Paul Martin and the always exceptional guitarist Kenny Vaughan) Marty Stuart has created another timeless masterpiece and one that will make any true music-lover a very happy camper.
(Also worth mentioning for fans of real Country Music is his Telly Award winning TV program "The Marty Stuart Show" which is one of the few watchable country music programs on television, and a breath of much needed fresh air in the relentless cycle of bland corporate Country Pop that Nashville keeps trying to convince the rest of America it really wants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marty Stuart Ghost Train September 23, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Growing up with Marty Stuart in hometown Philadelphia, MS was as exciting as listening to this new CD. Marty displays his wholesomeness, down-to-earth, spirtual person that he has always been. His compassion for his music and heritage is displayed throughout Ghost Train. And, I also enjoyed the reflections of good ole Philadelphia. I look forward to listening to more of Marty in the future...'Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions)

Exactly what I expected from Marty; some tunes more likeable than others, but none I didn't like. Very good production values and well-recorded.

Looking froward to this!
This is the best most real country album I have heard in at least 5 years! Marty and the Superlatives are in top form on every track. I loved The Pilgrim but this is a true work of art.
