Train Overnight references


"...Of course we're now travelling by plane
If it's not a Canada of a pain
We'll entertain the idea of train"

Music@Work was supposed to be recorded on a moving train. The plan was to take a vintage rail car, customized and fitted with state of the art recording equipment, and actually record the album while travelling through the Southern United States. Johnny Fay was the man in charge of communicating with the owner of the engine and car. Fay recounted how the grizzled southern rail man called him shortly before the trip was scheduled to begin, and informed him that the old girl had ridden her last rail. With the train unable to roll, the band still faced a deadline, and found themselves back in their Bath, Ontario recording studio where Music@Work was completed.
