These are all great songs, mostly about trains and the people who ride them.Billy Bragg and his buddy are good musicians. Everyone should listen to this music. On the other hand, I know all these songs because I have versions of each one of them by artists that I love. I have cherished the versions which I have for years and will continue to cherish them. They will not be shoved aside by these great covers.

Joe Henry and Billy Bragg make a great pairing for these moving renditions of railroad-related songs.

Shine a Light features Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, two fantastic voices, collaborating on one outstanding project celebrating the American railroad. They want us all to ride the rails, like they did while recording this album, and help keep our railroad system alive. Shine a Light is wonderful from start to finish, and it's near the top of my list of favorite 2016 albums. I recommend checking out their solo work also if you are unfamiliar with their long music careers. Shine a Light is also available to download and keep at a rate of five songs per week through Hennepin County Library's Freegal subscription; find Freegal under Online Resources.
