Product Details


Immortalized by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest songs of all time, this gospel-influenced Curtis Mayfield classic has remained relevant since its release in 1965. Part of a long tradition of African American freedom songs that use train imagery, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. considered this the unofficial anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. Kyle's groovy arrangement captures the musical style with bluesy vocals and a riff-filled piano part.
