The Train I’m On was the fifth album by Tony Joe White. It was produced by Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd and recorded in 1972 at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.

Acoustic textured for much of its length and built on a close, intimate sound overall, The Train I’m On is permeated with the dark side of White’s usual swamp rock sound, filled with songs about unsettled loves and lives, and men caught amid insoluble situations. Betraying surprising vulnerability for much of its length, he shows off an emotional complexity that wasn’t always obvious on his earlier work.

Dark, pensive, soulful bluesy rock, highlighted by some bristling acoustic guitar work. The Train I’m On spawned three singles, including “I’ve Got a Thing About You Baby”, which was notably covered by Elvis Presley.

The Train I’m On is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on yellow coloured vinyl.
