Truck Drivin' Son-Of-A-Gun

Haulin' Dynamite
The Land Rovers Truck Drivin' Son-Of-A-Gun
And Other Songs Of The Road
Diplomat DS 2367

Obscure early trucking album featuring a Johnny Cash sound-alike.

Songs about how horrible truck driving is set to country music. If the prostitutes, broken down trucks, bad food, lack of exercise, sleep and traffic tickets won't kill you... the day your truck explodes in a ball of fire will.

  3. This LP rules!!! I would say the singer sounds more like Red Simpson than Johnny Cash... which brings me to the point that I can't find anything out about this band! The singer is great, the guitars are ripping through the whole record... I would love to know who played on this album!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. If memory serves me, I don't believe the band received credit. Yes... on review not as much Cash sound as I heard the first time.
