To celebrate the release of the 12" 3 x track single 'Happiness Train' by Jessica Lauren Four feat. Jocelyn Brown on Freestyle Records on Monday 19th March 2012, here's a special railroad mix compiled from Jessica's record collection, an eclectic set of favourites and rarities all on a train theme. It includes the full album version of 'Happiness Train', together with a wide range of tunes including early blues and chain gang field recordings, ska, reggae, rock, folk, gospel, Americana, jazz and soul. Check the original Jamaican version of The Wailers' 'Catch A Fire' without the subsequent overdubs, and a version of Robert Johnson's 'Love In Vain' with speed correction - there's a theory that his recordings were speeded up for some unknown reason, and this slower version offers a tantalising glimpse of Robert Johnson as he may well have really sounded. See what you think...
