Thunderfoot

Released 1985

Thunderfoot is Hobo Jim's first album and samples true flavor of Alaskan Americana from iconic songs such as the Iditarod Trail, to the blithe sea shanty The Dramamine Fisher, and the touching Beauty of You.
NOTES
The name “Thunderfoot” was given by a fan for Hobo's foot stomping through many shows on many stages, sometimes stomping so rigorously he became somewhat renowned for breaking stages in his youth. As it was an iconic name it seemed fitting for an album title. This is Hobo's first recording and by far one of his most "Alaskan". An excellent album for any fan of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and other folk musicians.
