Steve Earle's first record after emerging from artistic struggles, prison, and addiction, 1995's Train A-Comin' finds an artist starting from scratch and returning to the very basics of his musical vision. The low-key, charming, all-acoustic support comes from veterans Peter Rowan, Norman Blake, and Roy Huskey, while Earle's original material dates as far back as 1974--he wrote "Mercenary Song," he notes, while still working at Ciraco's Pizza. The mix of covers--Beatles, Townes Van Zandt, and the "Jamaican hillbilly" of "Rivers of Babylon" (with Emmylou Harris chiming in)--proves he had one primary listener in mind: himself. With no expectations thrust upon him, no labels involved, and very few at the time bothering to listen, Earle mined a raw gem. --Marc Greilsamer

Format: Audio CD
Steve Earl opens the album by declaring: "This here's the 'Hometown Blues' with apologies to Thomas Wolfe and Doc Watson," and then presents the listener with the warmest and perhaps most personal album of this country renegade's career. It had been four years since his last studio album, 1991's The Hard Way, and almost a decade since his 1986 debut Guitar Town. For this comeback effort, Earle strips things down to the roots. The band consists of a Who's Who of country, folk and bluegrass musicians: Norman Blake (guitar, Dobro, fiddle, mandolin and Hawaiian guitar), Peter Rowan (mandolin, mandola, gut string guitar and vocals), Roy Husky (accoustic bass) and Emmylou Harris (vocals). The album is a mixture of originals like "Mercenary Song" and "Ben McCulloch," and covers like Townes Van Zandt's "Tecumseh Valley" and a wonderful version of the Beatles' "I'm Looking Through You." If you enjoyed Earle's 1999 collaberation with the Del McCoury Band on The Mountain, you'll love Train a Comin'. In 1986 three artists released their debuts: Dwight Yoakam, Randy Travis and Steve Earle. I thought they would save country music. If they haven't succeeded, they at least have helped preserve its integrity. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

"This ain't my unplugged record!" Steve writes in the liner notes to this gem, originally released in '95. It's a collection of songs old and new, and a few covers, performed primarily on acoustic tours. There's nary a bad track; and the good ones... they'll haunt you long after the album's over. A case in point: "Goodbye." Emmylou Harris does a near-definitive version of it on her Wrecking Ball album, but here... Steve's understated vocals bypass the brain in favor of the heart, recalling all of the folks left behind but carried with us, still. For that song alone, this CD is a necessary addition to any self-respecting fan's collection; add in the story-song "Ben McCulloch," his masterful take of Townes' Van Zandt's "Tecumsah Valley" and his duet with Emmylou on "Rivers of Babylon"... this is one of those albums that you put in the CD player to listen to and end up listening to it two, three, four times in a row.

Train catches the essential Earle. Great musicians on this album. Fantastic stories, good music, wonderful "comback" compilation of old and new. I was priviliged to see SE in his first live show after getting out of the grey bar hotel at the Vic in Chicago. Still the best show I have ever seen. He was truely moved on several occasions and once had to turn his back to the crowd because of it. I have been to dozens of shows in my day but never experieced a show where they turned on the lights to the theater and turned on the recorded music, and nobody left. SE came on for a 4th encore and said " I don't know where your staying tonight but it can't be here, so I'll do one more and you got to promise to go". Well he went into a acoustic version of Someday and made everyones night. What a great album and eclectic talent.

I only know Steve Earle thru "The Mountain" and this album. To me, he is the world's greatest folk and bluegrass musician...even though most of his albums are made with other instrumentation. I just see a guy who's loaded with talent and musical intent. He picks up a guitar, he opens his mouth, and what comes out is just perfect. The way this album starts up..."Hear that train a comin', hear that train a comin'..." Nothing could be simpler, and yet it comes out like the very spirit of music. "The Mountain" deserves 6 stars. This one gets a 5. Great.

Format: Audio CD
When this CD came out in the mid-90's, all-acoustic "unplugged" albums where artists re-recorded their greatest hits with acoustic instruments had become sort of a fad, thanks to MTV. However, if you are expecting something like that, you are in for a surprise. This is just a kick-ass, hard-country album, with (almost) all original songs. The only album I would compare this to would be Waylon Jennings' "Honky Tonk Heroes" -- which is saying a whole hell of a lot.
The only song on this CD which I could do without is "Rivers of Babylon", which is an attempt at some kind of country reggae. However, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, I can skip this track without having to pick a needle up and put it back down without scratching the record, or even having to mess around with a fast-forward button. Is the 21st century great or what?
If you like country music, or if you just like good music, don't pass this record up!

I bought this CD several years ago because of one of the songs on it that I had heard someone else play and I'm still listening to it today. I don't know eveything, but this CD ranks this as one of the best of the 90's, It doesn't matter what kind of music you listen to Train is a masterpiece.I admit that while I new of SE before his vacation, I would hardly call myself a fan. But I can't tell you how many people I've turned on to the man simply by forcing them to listen to this CD. Just once and their all hooked. As good as this CD is you haven't lived until you've seen him live. If he ever comes to your town drop everything and go, you won't regret it.
