Convoy – C.W. McCall (1975)
An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” novelty single of Convoy from 1975, by Country star, C.W. McCall. Released on the Epic record label, this vinyl single has been reworked into a haulage truck.
The song consists of a simulated CB conversation with CB slang, the narration of the story, and the chorus. The conversation is between ‘Rubber Duck’, ‘Pig Pen’ and ‘Sodbuster’. The song is about a fictitious trucker rebellion that drives from the west to the east coast of the United States without stopping, in a protest against the speed limit, log sheets, truck weights and toll roads.
