Songs from Erin McReynolds’s Essay “Train Songs”

February 18, 2020

Erin McReynolds’s essay “Train Songs” appears in our February 2020 issue, and we thought readers might appreciate hearing the songs she mentions in the piece. From Skip James to Johnny Cash to Jimmy Cliff, the playlist spans multiple eras and genres, and putting them together as an accompaniment seemed like another way into the heart of her narrative. (The essay is part of McReynolds’s upcoming memoir, which she’s currently working on.)
