Notes:
The title track of the album, Road Song, was previously known as OGD, standing for organ, guitar and drums. This is believed to be a studio note and not a final name. The track was originally recorded by Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith while Creed Taylor was still with Verve, was not released until after Taylor had left Verve. It is featured on Various - Leonard Feather Encyclopedia Of Jazz In The '60's Volume One The Blues and the later Smith Montgomery compilation Jimmy Smith And Wes Montgomery - Further Adventures Of Jimmy And Wes in 1969.

It is not known when Creed Taylor decided to name the track and album, Road Song. The name though came from "one of the most iconic" Pete Turner (4), photographs, called "Road Song" and taken in 1967 outside of Kansas City airport. As used on the 1968 album cover, the picture was reversed effectively flipping the image left over right.

Omni Magazine, issue 1. Volume 1., used the same photograph for the cover of its launch issue, in its original perspective. Turner authorized 100, numbered, vintage dye transfer prints, these have sold for upto $3500 at auction.
