On The Road - The Mega Years Plus
Henson Cargill
A Stunning, Earthy Country Concept LP! First Time On CD!!!

Henson Cargill burst into the international spotlight with his controversial crossover hit Skip A Rope in late 1967. By 1971 (after further hits and a slew of great material) the wells at Monument Records had run dry and Henson moved to the Nashville independent Mega Records. It was here that Henson produced perhaps his finest material, the challenging, earthy concept LP “On The Road”.

Collected here is all Henson’s Mega era material plus a number of rare 45 only cuts, scholarly liner notes and period photos and ephemera. All tracks make their very first appearance on CD.

Unfairly neglected over the years “On The Road” is an artistic triumph and a compelling listen.
