Union Train

Union Train

For decades Joe Glazer, "Labor’s Troubadour" inspired workers in mills, factories and on railways. In this collection of music, Glazer reminisces of the struggles and triumphs of the railroad worker. He writes, "This album is dedicated to all the workers who lost limbs and lives on the railroads, to the John Henrys who built the Big Bend tunnels and the Casey Joneses who drove the big eight wheelers, to the waymen and the brakemen, the telegrapher and the firemen, the conductors and the switchmen, the clerks and the craftsmen, the planners and the builders; and, yes, to the hoboes who rode the rods and the empty boxcars."
