Super Slab Hits

All the excitement, danger and romance of the big trucks and the open road.

I have an enormous weak spot for Truck Driving music. There's just something about the lure of the open road, the excitement of the big rigs, the freedom, the danger, the women... well, you get the picture.

Super Slab Hits delivers a bevy of gritty truckin' mantras. You won't find me on a long road trip without the likes of these tunes available to keep the tempo up and add that extra flavor to the long haul.

You have to wonder whether they make records like this for truck drivers themselves, or if they're really intended for city-boy wannabes like me. After all, it would be pretty hard to keep the needle down when you're doing 65 MPH in an 18 wheeler on Interstate 80. (Perhaps an 8-track tape version was available at truck stops for the mobile crowd).

I don't know what super slab hits is exactly. But I do know something about truckin music. I drove those rigs for 7 years. I wanted to my whole life and I finally got my dream of owning my own truck and trailer. It was short lived though. The stresses today's O/O has to go through, were just too much to bear for me and my new family. I'm just 27 and I had to give up my dream of the open road for the truth in Family. I hope that whoever reads this, will give any driver they meet the highest respect. You will never meet any people on this earth, like the genuine Old Skool Chicken Haulers. Woop Woop!!!
God Bless those who write these tunes that I'll never forget. All I need is to hear Smokey Mountain Rain, or the Pinball Machine, and I can be in a place most have not. I can see what most have not seen. I can remember what I'll never be able to explain to anyone. The Pinball Machine was a favorite song of a great Uncle of my. He took a trip with me once and I remember this song in his memory. He was know to sing this song as well as the original recording artist who sang it. Now I try to sing it when the opportunity comes around "Oh Lord, if I could live my life over....and then he fell dead, the victim of an old truck, and a pinball machine.

This was one of five truckin' records put out by Gusto Records, which were sold on TV as a set, in about 1979. Super Slab Hits has the greatest name of the five, but the others are Forty Miles of Bad Road, Road Runner, How Fast Them Trucks Can Go and Truckin' On. The commercials were awesome. (08-06-2003)

Trying to find the name of a song abt 2 truckers driving and listening to the CB when this "strange voice" came over the radio ... it turns out at the end that the strange voice was a trooper tailing them. Its kind of a comedy I think. Looking for song name & artist. Any one knows please let me know... Thanks (07-23-2003)

Sid says:
Does anybody know who sang the song Overloaded Diesel? "This overloaded diesel's hauling too much freight, we're rolling into Memphis with an Olds 88....." (01-28-2003)

Holy crap! My best friend used to make me listen to all his truck drivin' tunes when we were kids and I used to think it was extra sucky Country and Western (he wasn't completely loopy, his uncle drove a rig and took him along sometimes). The poor guy was obsessed with 18 wheelers, he even got a tattoo of a Kenworth on his shoulder when he joined the Navy. I haven't heard Pinball Machine in over twenty years, I can't believe I didn't like it. Oh, my friend became a plumber, but he still flaunts his tat with pride! (01-28-2003)

I tried for a month or so to find the Pinball Machine song. I even sent into a request site to see if they could find it. Thank you for the song. And as far as the dude that said 'THERE SHOULD BE A SEPARATE ROAD FOR TRUCK DRIVERS, Well, He should think of how everything that he relies on to survive, is brought to him by a truck. Cars need to respect Trucks, and realize that it takes the length of a football field, in order for them to stop. That person is just another inconsiderate person that lets his Ego do the thinking. Anyway, thanks again for the song.. PINBALL... I am learning it on the guitar. (10-21-2002)
