"... a resounding statement on the foundation of one of the greatest achievements of American backbone and its influence on the world."
- PopMatters.com

"... a railroad trip to the blues ... the combination of background sounds and voices from Essex and North Carolina brings a Transatlantic feel to songs steeped in Americana ... it sounds like it was a lot of fun, the pair alternating and sharing vocals ... they’re more than train songs and brim with tales of capitalist enslavement and hopes of freedom ... the tender treatment of John Hartford’s Gentle on My Mind (is a revelation.)"
- The Guardian

In March 2016, British indie singer-songwriter Billy Bragg and his American counterpart Joe Henry boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station, guitars in hand, looking to reconnect with the culture of American railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along more than 2700 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train stopped to pick up passengers.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
