The Blues Project – Two Trains Running – Live 1981

Monday, July 16th, 2012

THE BLUES PROJECT -LIVE INTERNATIONAL CASINO,NYC MARCH 17,1981 One of the first album-oriented, “underground” groups in the United States, the Blues Project offered an electric brew of rock, blues, folk, pop, and even some jazz, classical, and psychedelia during their brief heyday in the mid-’60s. It’s not quite accurate to categorize them as a blues-rock group, although they did plenty of that kind of material; they were more like a Jewish-American equivalent to British bands like the Yardbirds, who used a blues and R&B base to explore any music that interested them. Erratic songwriting talent and a lack of a truly outstanding vocalist prevented them from rising to the front line of ’60s bands, but they recorded plenty of interesting material over the course of their first three albums, before the departure of their most creative members took its toll. The Blues Project was formed in Greenwich Village in the mid-’60s by guitarist Danny Kalb (who had played sessions for various Elektra folk and folk-rock albums), Steve Katz (a guitarist with Elektra’s Even Dozen Jug Band), flutist/bassist Andy Kulberg, drummer Roy Blumenfeld, and singer Tommy Flanders. Al Kooper, in his early twenties a seasoned vet of rock sessions, joined after sitting in on the band’s Columbia Records audition, although they ended up signing to Verve, an MGM subsidiary. Early member Artie Traum (guitar) dropped out during early rehearsals; Flanders would leave after their first LP, Live at the Cafe Au

Electric Suburban Tait Trains Sandringham Line 1981

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

The Melbourne suburban Sandringham line, was in reality, the last line on which the Tait trains ran. This video shows trains arriving and departing Sandringhan station and Prahran station as well as some scenes near Balaclava and some footage of the obliging but tricky railway gates at Union Street level crossing at Windsor, which were as many others over the system, hand operated from a signal box via a big wheel and under road linkages As newer type suburban trains were being introduced to the suburban system, the Taits were relegated to the Sandringham line which is one of the shorter lines with practically no grades. Before a sufficient number of motor, or powered cars became available, the Taits were running on this line as six car trains with only two motored cars, or as three car trains with one motored. This made them slow in accelerating after stops but as the line had no hills, this was tolerated although I remember a shower of sparks coming from the pantograph and overhead on one at South Yarra at one time, when a driver obviouisly became impatient and gave it far too much power which didn’t make the difference he would have hoped for anyway. After enough motors were released, there were furthermore no such troubles. In earlier years, the Taits had run on the Sandringham and other lines, generally as seven car trains with three motors with two motors being able to form a four car set once thee cars were taken off. This always occurred at Flinders Sttreet
