Promised Land (PB 10074)

Promised Land (PB 10074)

Released: Sep. 27, 1974

One of the highlights of the December Stax sessions, a rare and almost carefree excursion into rock territory with the classic Chuck Berry rewrite (with completely different, and always topical, lyrics) of Roy Acuff’s “Wabash Cannonball.” Once again good radio play for a song that was nothing if not radio-friendly, even if it failed to sell better than other recent singles.
