"The reason the CD has 23 instead of 24 is a CD only holds 700 MB of information. If you put all 24 songs it runs just over the 700 MB threshhold. Unfortunate as that is, because I love "The Gear Jammer and the Hobo". However you can find that song on the 2 CD collection called "Legends of Road Music" , the record label is "King". That collection has all the songs from Road Music and then some.
Now onto the music. I found this on tape in the early 90's when I was still a truck driver. I wore the tape out because I listened to it so much. Without a doubt it is my favorite country album ever made. For lack of a better word it is nostalgic. I am in my early 30's so the times that these tracks were laid down were well before I was born, yet they paint pictures of time when the world was a lot slower and family was the heart of America.
When I listen I get the yearning for a slower pace. It makes me want to fire up my old CB and give a break one nine call.
My 1 year old daughter loves this album as well. She gets the biggest kick out of the old sound and wiggles and jiggles her [...] with every song.
This is some of the best music and rarely heard music one could hear in a life time."
Missing one song....

"and Norman, there is plenty of room on this CD for Gear Jammer and the Hobo... the 23 track cd is 72-73 minutes long, Gear Jammer and the Hobo is 4 or 5 minutes long, and I have seen commercially released CD's that are 79 and one half minutes long! so there is absolutely no reason they could not have put the entire original album on the CD!"
