Chris "freight train" Floyd / Press

“Christopher has a unique sound. The first song "There You Are" is actually still the most from Robbie Robertson (The Band) composition.

A rare combination that works wonderfully here. Listen to "Eighteen Wheels and a Padded Room" and you're with me. If I may highlight some songs, I prefer to "Long Distance Love" do a compo Lowell George, and two versions of "Fools Argument". But the catchy bluegrass song "Women, Music and Trucks" is eligible. In fact it is not fair to single out here and get the ereschavotje to post because they are all ten very strong. Some names that rise to me when listening to this record were Jimmy LaFave, John Mellencamp, Steve Forbert and Fred Eaglesmith. I would like Delbert McClinton "Pretty Woman" like to sing, the pieces would fly off.”

Track four "Fools Argument" this has got some pure country blues feel with solid bluegrass roots coming from Tony Wray on Banjo and Wayne Benson on Mandolin, excellent tune.Track six "I know you rider" is you typical twelve bar blues with a twist, the charm of a funky bass line and a sexy guitar riff does it for me excellent stuff! you can hear some Chicago Blues creeping into the mix but the Harmonica keeps the southern feel to the song. Overall Freight Train Deluxe have g”
