Americana UK Top Albums Of The Year - "I Wish I Was A Train "

"Lyman Ellerman - ‘I Wish I Was a Train’ (Woodshed Resistance/2018)

This is an album that after regular listening still lingers with and haunts me. Here is Lyman Ellerman’s personal record of life with its highs and lows. But it is an example of one of those Americana CD’s that deserves to reach a much wider audience. Ellerman movingly conveys feelings that range from “run down, tired and empty” to rejoicing in a new day: “Here comes the sunshine!” Just listen to the title track, its words and the music!
