Reissue of this rare 1979 album, giving this beautiful collectable piece the proper reissue it deserves, with an official license from Bruce Flett Production. The s/t LP from 'A' Train is hard to classify. The 6-piece from Louisiana really weren't trying to be a particular "style", and they just got together and started jamming on songs they had written individually. The name of the band came from Duke Ellington's theme song 'Take the 'A' Train'. Jazz, blues, R&B, and rock were what the individual members liked the most, so the music was a melting pot of musical gumbo. Disco and "Urban Cowboy" were the dominant music trends in local clubs, which helped 'A' Train become a popular alternative from the first time they performed in December 1977 at Humpfrees in the Square in Shreveport, LA.
