AllMusic Review by

An amazing large-scale audio cast album consisting of a drama/legend in folk music form dealing with Abraham Lincoln. Burl Ives' Lonesome Train: A Musical Legend About Abraham Lincoln is a creation that could only have been brought off properly and successfully in the LP era, and one that makes a curious period piece today, especially as narrator Earl Robinson was a blacklistee in subsequent years.
