The original version of "Railroad Man" is from the 1974 Bill Withers LP '+'JUSTMENTS'. It's amazing what the late Bill Withers was doing in 1974, isn't it ? It's also amazing what Mr. Beedle has done with his song. As you can listen from the original, Mr. Beedle didn't have to do a whole hell of a lot to the already monstrous album version, but his strokes are just right. It's my favorite edit of the moment from the second installment of the Cosmic Boogie series.
