So when is the last time a "train song" was in the Top 100 chart. Good ? I found a few you havent heard
ever or in a long time except for Rock Island Line. Toot Toot.

I have that Neil Young record on red vinyl which means its a must have. I just scratched the surface of "cool"
train songs vs the folk kind but some of them are pretty cool depending on who's singing them. So many train
songs referring to the "steam era" and not so many in the diesel era. A few more adds that were easy to remember.

I guess I'm late to see/hear Tash Sultana. She did these "bedroom recordings" 5yrs ago.
Pretty amazing great music.

"I Feel Love" by Donna Summer. Loved it and have the 45rpm single to prove it. Then I heard "extended versions"
that were so full of great new electronical sounds that you had to get those as well. Thinking the 11-12 minute version
the one. So I include a Donna Summer live version. Think she's a Capricorn and after her hey days in disco went
religious sorta like Al Green. So what brought this song a rekindle from memory banks...the compressed files is
the "Blue Men Group" as it was a part of their act on one of their tours. I know so little about the "Blue Men Group".

"Son of Dave" is a one man band. Love everything I've heard by the guy. Great choices of cover songs.
Soul Finger a popular favorite and a pretty fucking decent cover of one of my favorite reggae tunes
"Double Barrel". "Carry On" is just great. Son of Dave has a lot of music on YouTube if you want to hear more.

Never thought I'd get a tip on the new latest/greatest bluesman on the Drudge Report.

How 23-Year-Old Phenom Named Kingfish Became Future of Blues...

Never heard of the guy. Visit YouTube and there he is. Jimmy Rushing did a song called "Mr 5 by 5" meaning 

5ft tall and 5ft wide. Kingfish pretty close. To see him play is a visual experience as it doesnt make sense.

The guitar around his neck looks like a toy.

"Theater of Hate" is a Canadian band I heard on NEON back in 1982. "Do You Believe in the Westworld" Why yes I do.
There was zero chance of seeing this band live in 1982. Just know I love the "western twang" to this song and the strong
drumming. FF to 36 yrs later and how it sounds.

Up Bustle and Out a band from Bristol UK. Had me fooled as the 1st song I heard by Up Bustle and Out was a
Cumbia tune. The band uses plenty of latin influence and it turns out great.

Will Epstein a composer/songwriter from NYC and a whole bunch of his music on YouTube now.
Really like these 3 selections. Sorta what rock music should be in 2022.

Think the only way one would even know the band "Agrupacion Ilegal Los Imparciales" even existed would be
by YouTube. It could show up in the recommended looking for something else. If you like....you will like this.
Thats how I discover new music today.

Billy Butler guitarist from the 50's-60's. I dont have any of his albums but he has played
with many jazz greats that I'm sure I can find his name somewhere. Lucky to find right away
much of his works on YouTube. The 3rd selection "Blow for the crossing" implies he has some train
engineer in him.

Discovered a new "vein" of tropical music thats pretty darn cool. "Azaxx" is not a household known artist.
The more listens to this track the more you likes. More tracks to add soon.

I first heard this song on NEON CBC one Saturday night in 1981. So catchy. Had to have it.
