The Train I'm On
Label: Rhino/Warner Records
Before The Train I'm On, White's bread and butter was swamp funk so groovy you'd swear the handsome Louisiana man exited the womb wearing leather pants. Of course, he was always a great lyricist, but this is where he became a singer-songwriter with an eye for detail that rivaled Springsteen's. With his soulful croon and a warm backing band featuring some truly great organ, White introduces us to a cast of hard luck southern characters looking for peace, love, work and, most of all, understanding.
