King Solomon Hill (1897, McComb, Mississippi – 1949, Sibley, Louisiana) was a bluesman who recorded a small handful of songs in 1932. His unique guitar and voice make them among the most haunting blues recorded. Hill is speculated to have been Joe Holmes, a self-taught guitarist from Mississippi.

As of 2011, King Solomon Hill has eight known recordings which are as follows:

"Whoopee Blues" (Take 1)

"Whoopee Blues" (Take 2)

"Down on My Bended Knee" (Take 1)

"Down on My Bended Knee" (Take 2)

"The Gone Dead Train"

"Tell Me Baby"

"My Buddy Blind Papa Lemon"

"Times Has Done Got Hard"

 Popular culture references"The Gone Dead Train" was used as the title for a ninth-season episode of the television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and actually is briefly played in the episode, along with mention of King Solomon Hill as the artist.



The 1969 film Performance, directed by Nicholas Roeg and Donald Cammell and starring Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull, contains a song called "The Gone Dead Train," performed by Randy Newman. However, this is a rewrite by Jack Nitzsche and Russ Titelman and bears only a passing resemblance to "The Gone Dead Train" as performed by King Solomon Hill. As noted by rock critic Greil Marcus, the "dead train" in the Newman version is used as a metaphor for impotence.[3] In Hill's original, the train appears to literally refer to an actual locomotive, which Hill referred to as a "Death Train."



King Solomon Hill aparece en un box que contiene  tres Cd`s., que lleva por título : Early Blues Moods ( How The Blues was born ),con el tema Woopee Blues . Viendo los títulos de varias de sus composiciones, podemos apreciar que el ferrocarril está muy presente en sus letras.
El recopilatorio que citamos comparte protagonismo con otros artistas pioneros en el género como Lonnie Johnson, Texas Alexander , Tommy Johnson , Blind Blake, etc. y fué comercializado en 2003 por una firma holandesa ,bajo licencia de Charly Licensing aps.
