A s proof of my peculiar mania, I asked my brother for a stopwatch this Christmas (ask and ye shall receive, which I did). The attraction to time? Labels are notoriously bad about recording the correct track times, especially on singles. Case in point: “Whiskey Train” runs about three minutes (I could give you an exact amount, but why rub it in?) but is listed on the single as running 2:27. I know... who cares? (Me, and the stopwatch and I couldn’t be happier together.) In A&M’s defense, the B side has the correct time. But what does the single sound like? Bah! Minutiae to a mind that has tasted the Tardis of track times! Not really. “Whiskey Train” is a blues rock number similar to Steve Miller, “About To Die” is more in line with the band’s too-rich mixture of sound (think of a heavy Traffic). Both songs come from the album Home.
