Review

Review Text ASV/Living Era's Sounds of the Steam Age: Vintage Trains collects 25 locomotive-themed compositions from the years 1930 to 1961. From Peter Hanford's landmark recordings of actual British steam engines ("Sounds of the Steam Age") to Ragtime-era Glenn Miller, this anthology of the railroad is as diverse as they come. The sound quality ranges from excellent to dreadful, as many of these recordings are quite ancient, but the spirit of the rails is alive and well throughout, resulting in one of the oddest yet ultimately satisfying historical -- and genre-bending -- romps through the United Kingdom and the United States as they celebrate their unique railroad heritage. ~ James Christopher Monger
