Song: Train Train Train (Album: Vol. 3)

 





Written in the late 80s by sisters and musical partners Maxie Kinney and Inge Goodson, "Train Train Train" describes one woman's longing to stop her lover from leaving on a train and being lost from her forever.

Anyone who has been in a romantic relationship understands that feeling of wanting to make it right, to make up for some mistake to get the relationship back on track towards the bright future it once promised, especially when it means stopping them from leaving for somewhere far away.

This song was recorded at the Brentwood Studios in Nashville, TN; Inge is singing lead while Maxie is singing backup harmony. The fitting video was created by Maxie recently.

Song: Small Town Blues (Album: Vol. 3)

 





"Small Town Blues" is one of the most famous of Maxie's songs, co-written by her sister and music partner Inge Goodson. One of the following versions ("Alabama Blue") of this song was sold to a recording producer, which was co-written by 2 other writers and cut by a few different artists -- giving Maxie 33% of recording rights and a few royalty checks over the years; yet for true fans of Maxie and Inge's music, this version and the second "Country Blue" are the best.

This song tells the sorrowful tale of a young, small-town couple broken up by the allure of the big city life; the boyfriend next door whom she grew up with and planned to be married to decided to leave the small town to live in the big city, leaving his childhood sweetheart with a broken heart in a small town -- giving her a bad case of small-town blues. The melody and vocal expression helps us feel the woeful pain this broken-hearted girl is going through -- the mark of a genuine singer/songwriter.

This song and recording were created around the mid-1980s; the talented Spike Jones produced it. Inge Goodson is singing lead vocals while Maxie sings backup in an exceptional performance. The video was created by Maxie, and the picture is of Maxie in the early 1980s when she was in her early 20s.

Song: Gambling for Gold (Album: Vol. 2)

 





This is an interesting story Maxie tells us through song, based on the inspiration of her great-grandfather who lived in Mississippi and happened to be a gambler; he died of tuberculosis; Maxie explains "What I knew of his story I wanted to put in a song."

With some interesting details filled in and changed, "Gambling for Gold" tells a tale of Americana, the Old West variety, with guns a-blazing, gambling, and gold -- remember, there was Annie Oakley. In this version, Spike Jones helped with the production (incl. guitar) and Inge Goodson sang back-up in another quality and fun effort from this familiar ensemble of talented musicians and songwriters. Recorded in the early 90s. The fitting song art was created by Maxie Kinney.

Song: Captain Hook (Album: Vol. 2)

 





The early 90s was a prolific time of creativity for Maxie and her sister Inge Goodson, as this was when the dynamic musical pair was living in Tennessee and pitching their songs to producers in hopes of catching their ears to promote the next big hit. The unique and catchy tune Captain Hook tickled many ears and had some bites, yet never did get the big bite it deserved. The good part is the tune is preserved as it was intended, a short and sweet melody telling a woeful story many people can relate to, heartbreak in a romantic relationship. Maxie wrote the melody and sang backup vocals while Inge wrote the lyrics and sang lead in one of their best efforts. The talented Spike Jones produced the song and Maxie created the cover art in this inspiring team effort.

Song: I'm Coming Home (Album: Vol. 2)

 





The theme of coming home continues, as Maxie shares another classic song from the 90s that happens to relate well to the trucker's protest in Canada and around the world. While truckers and freedom lovers around the world are currently fighting for the rights of regular citizens from tyrannical rulers, they also want to say "I'm Coming Home" to their communities and loved ones when their protest is over and their cause is victorious -- we pray for this outcome. 

The talented Jimmy Crokett sang and produced this version of a tune shared by "Guitar Picken Man"; Jimmy also sang and produced "Life Comes Life Goes", both can be found in Volume 2 of Maxie's music. The song picture was created by Maxie recently.

Song: Life Comes Life Goes (Album: Vol. 2)

 





In a world of superficial influences, "words of wisdom are more precious than gold"; that is part of the message in this meaningful song, as the listener is asked to slow down from the bustle of modern life and grab hold of those valuable things in our lives we may be taking for granted. Maxie wrote this song in the early 90s while going through the nice one-horse town of Shaniko, Oregon. The talented Jimmy Crokett sang and produced the song in the 90s, giving life to the busy man whose life changed that fateful day in ole Shaniko. The cover artwork was created by Maxie.
