October In The Railroad Earth

Both the album and the opening song of Tom Russell’s new (and fabulous) album are called October In The Railroad Earth, named of course after Kerouac’s fine and much-loved poem.

The lyrics of the song add nothing really new to the Kerouac canon, but it serves very well indeed as a celebration of and homage to Kerouac’s work by someone quite obviously very familiar with and in awe of Kerouac’s books and poems.
