Viva la Vinyl: Whiskeytown's Theme For A Trucker

After setting up and installing my USB record player, the first piece of vinyl I reached for was probably my rarest and most prized piece.


Whiskeytown's Theme For A Trucker Double 7" was released in April of 1997. Personnel included - of course - Ryan and Caitlin, as well as Phil Wandscher, Steve Terry, Bill Ladd, and Chris Stamey. The 7" is comprised of 3 songs that would later see album releases in some form but begins with an otherwise unreleased title-track. A remastered version of each one of these tunes was released with the Deluxe Edition of Stranger's Almanac but just remember that these come straight off an original vinyl pressing - to your ears. The pops and scratches are authentic and provide an unmistakable ambiance. Enjoy.
