Yes, swimming pool.

Rail River & RoadNightflyer announces the release of their sophomore recording “Rail River & Road.” The CD includes 13 cuts, eight of them brand new songs. After the success of the Paula Breedlove/Brad Davis original tunes the band recorded on their first CD, they went back to that well and found three more by this duo that they felt were a perfect fit for the Nightflyer sound. Rick Lang and Joe Richardson each contributed two songs, and the final original, “The Man I’ve Come To Know,” was written by Nightflyer lead singer and guitarist Richard Propps, honoring his late father. The cover tunes range from Hazel Dickens’ “Old River” to “Train, Train” made famous by the rock group Blackfoot, and later recorded by Dolly Parton.
