Waiting For A Train (1982)
Released in 1982 and reissued on CD in 1991 on the Peabody label, Waiting for a Train showcases Selvidge's eclectic taste in American music. "The first song I was conscious of as a Child was Tex Ritter's version of Rye Whiskey," says Selvidge. Trimmed and Burning is a bow to Bluesman Fred McDowell. Selvidge says, "Lee Baker played slide. I couldn't figure out why he attacked the guitar with such intensity until, years later, he told me he had had major dental surgery right before the session and had refused any pain killers."
