Description

‘TWISTED TALES FROM THE TRUCKSTOPS’ – German version, limited to 500 copies, for much better price and with better sound! Gathered here are some of the toughest cuts from the trucking genre, originally from the ’60s and early-mid ’70s. These tracks were taken from small label 45s cut by blue collar men who drove an 18 wheeler by day and picked up a guitar on the weekend to tell stories of highway mayhem, double clutchin’, gear bustin’ and coffee drinking. This collection will literally put you in the seat for a road trip you’ll never forget. You will almost smell the diesel fumes. That’s a big 10-4!
