Robyn Hitchcock I Often Dream of Trains Covers




I cut my teeth on the Midnight Records release of I Often Dream of Trains, and so this package is sort of bittersweet for me. Adding the bonus tracks to this all but compelled me to bite on it and get it, and so, here it is. The best of the solo albums, the shimmering star in a catalog that rises head and shoulders above that of most artists.

There are albums with the Egyptians and with collaborators, and then there are the proper solo albums frrom Robyn and this is sort of the crown jewel of those. Definitely a piece of history from the vinyl era and no, I doubt very much whether the kids would get it, but oh well. Seek this out--any version of it is better than nothing.
