No. 9 Train

Tarheel Slim made his official entrance in 1958 with his wife, now dubbed Little Ann, in a duet format for Robinson's Fire imprint ("It's Too Late," "Much Too Late"). Then old Tarheel came out of the gate like his pants were on fire with a pair of rockabilly raveups of his own, "Wilcat Tamer" and "No. 9 Train," with Jimmy Spruill on blazing lead guitar. After a few years off the scene, Tarheel Slim made a bit of a comeback during the early '70s, with an album for Pete Lowry's Trix logo that harked back to Bunn's Carolina blues heritage. It would prove his last.

Great stuff here! This is my first visit (big thanks to bigrockcandymountain), I just wanted to let you know who was here.

That Adkins "Chicken Walk" track a few posts ago was a lovely thing.... but then, aren't most all songs about chickens so?!

Thanks, Rev, for the Good Word!
