GUEST,DWR Lyr Add: The Hell-Bound Train (18) RE: Lyr Add: The Hell-Bound Train 22 Jun 10


Yes, and if you are ever at "home" in Mountain View, AR, you can see Glenn just every now and then at the Ozark Folk Center. Upcoming dates are Thursday this week, June 24 and Wednesday, June 30 next week.

But getting back to The Hell-Bound Train, great song and a great book. I recommend it highly. It is out of print, but reasonably priced copies can sometimes be found in the shops or at eBay.

***********

Oooh, I lied, I just now looked at eBay and "reasonably priced" and Hell-Bound Train seem to have parted company. Five used copies are currently available in the $75-$80 range and a new copy is priced at just over $100. I think I paid about $15 for my most excellent ex-library copy.

It is one of a select number of books that are always at hand as I sit here at the computer. The others are Tony Russell's Country Music Discography and a small selection of Stamps-Baxter Hymnals,

OK, one more update. Amazon.com lists several in the $8-$25 range though you CAN get one for $999 if you are so inclined. Like I said, if you have any interest in cowboy music, this one's for you.
