Help finding albums released by Swing Era artists?

Question by John: Help finding albums released by Swing Era artists?
I am a huge swing fan but only have songs on my ipod and listen to them online. I really want to start buying records (vintage or recreated if they exist) but I can’t seem to find any genuine albums. They are all modern releases that are “best of” cd’s. So can someone please list the actual albums artists like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman….etc released. The same thing you would buy if you grew up in that time period if you know what I mean.

“A Swingin’ Affair” is the best album I’ve ever heard.

Not one song in that album that I don’t love.

Would it be a good idea to power electric trains the way the Finding Nemo ride is?

Would it be a good idea to power electric trains the way the Finding Nemo ride is? Instead of having unsightly and unreliable overhead powerlines (catenaries) and instead of having a dangerous their rail, couldn’t an electric train receive the electricity wirelessly from something hidden between the tracks out of sight and out of reach? It seems to me that if electric trains are going to be built in cities at ground level an alternative would be used by now.

Any induction method like that wastes a lot of power, and the longer it is, the more power it wastes. That’s ok for an amusement park, but not for a 1000 mile length of track.
