Information/Write-up

This record is the first Tom Russell outing, from Vancouver Canada. Other Band Members included Rocket Norton (Seeds of Time) and Rick Enns (United Empire Loyallists, Mock Duck). He doesn't particularly like this recording and doesn't often talk about it. He very begrugingly allowed the B-Side to appear on his "Museum Of Memories 1972-2002" album. This quote from Tom originaly came from his own website but has since been removed:

"One of the first songs I wrote as a member of 'Skid Row's Finest Band', Mule Train, in Vancouver B.C. It owes a little to Commander Cody's style, and to my working six sets a night in a topless bar on skid row. Financed by a well known porn king and put on 500 of his jukeboxes. Promptly removed by Mothers Against Drugs And Drunk Driving. So the 500 copies rotted in a Chinese warehouse". The A-side has still never been reissued.

Apparently, there were 25 of the picture sleeves printed.
