(Nov 19, 2013): Taj Mahal – Six Days on the Road

From the 1969 double LP, Giant Step / De Ole Folks At Home.  This cover of the Earl Green and Carl Montgomery classic — which at the time was only six years after Dave Dudley hit and the Swanee Caldwell version on a Truck Driver Songs compilation  — is one of the best.  A cross-over, break-out tune for Taj Mahal.  I first heard it in the early 1970s on K-SHE, which was then a progressive rock station.
