Looking for this progressivly manic song and all I know is that it starts off with train effects. There is a Tuba for a base. This song gets more exciting as it plays. I heard it on dismuke one day, and the title didn't appear on my player window... It's the "song that got away"!!!

The song is "choo Choo" it was vvery popular in England The version you heard was probably the Jack Payne I think it's the best Jack Hylton also made a fine version of it. I believe Paul Whiteman recorded it as well as Frankie Trumbauer.

I have a version by the Marius Winter Orchestra too. It's a great piece of music.

Eddie I have that version also they do a good job with this very unusual song. BUT! you have to hear the Payne, It's incredible!! The best fidelity I have ever heard on a record from this period. If you wan't I would be glad to burn it for you along with the Hylton version.

The Jack Payne version I may already have somewhere (and can get easily enough, I'll get it from Dutton the next time I put in an order) but I'd love to hear the Hylton version. smile.gif

Ed, Interesting about the Hylton is that it has a vocal chorus. I think you'll like it a lot. Let me know where to send it I'll throw other recordings on it also.

Now that I would like to hear. I can't imagine where you'd add vocals to that song.
My e-mail is eddie*at*postaccesslite.com (just change the *at* part. This address should accept large attachments)
Thanks!

The Song "Choo Choo" is not the song I am thinking of. Yes Choo Choo is a great song (Whiteman, Trumbauer, Hylton), however the one I am thinking of is faster and starts off with what sounds like actuall train effects. This song has the feeling of getting faster and more lively as the song progresses.

Gregory,

I just checked my link to redhotjazz.com and it appears to be loading properly as usual. ( I checked it at 5:15pm PST).

Is there any particular page you would like me to try?

Ian

Hi Bob,

How is the restoration work going?

Are you able to load up RedHotJazz? Gregory was having trouble with it. It works for me though...

There are several 1920s and 1930s jazz numbers that try to sound like trains to a lesser or greater degree. Some that come to mind spontaneously (I'm writing this at work without access to my record collection) are "Railroad Man" by Irving Mills (fine sax solo by Jack Pettis), "Scratch" by the Blue Ribbon Syncopators, "Hot Town" by Fess Williams and "Daybreak Express" by Duke Ellington. Could be anyone of these the original poster was thinking about?

Fredrik, I don't think Railroad Man would apply It does start out with an attempt at a train whistle, but that's about the extent of the train sound there is no "choo choo" in that recording, One we missed is the Olsen of Beyond the Blue Horizon that starts and ends with a choo choo and train whistle. Based on his discription I whould have to say "Choo Choo" (the song) is what he heard.
