SUNSET TRAIN: THE SONG.(on Stardust Compilation #60)

Before I wrote the story, I wrote the song.
And now we've released it as a single.
You can hear a preview here:
http://www.kokosuniverse.com/avi/jm/wma/sunset_train.htm

Here's a little background for DJ's.

We wrote and recorded THE SUNSET TRAIN in 1970, in a 4-track studio, with no overdubbing, so it may sound slightly different from today's digital recordings.

The song has never been released before, and we've now made it a Stardust single for historic and artistic reasons. In other words, we like it, and we hope you do too. It's been neglected for 36 years.

Many thanks to our good friend Col. Buster Doss, who knows music, and understands where we're coming from.

All the best.
Jack & Misty

Stardust Records...Stardust Compilation #60

"THE SUNSET TRAIN."

(Intro recitation):
"Since his wife passed away,
the old man spent a lot of time with memory things.
He'd sit by the hour,
and stare at the old picture of The Sunset Train,
and talk to her like she was still right there by his side."

(1st verse. She sings):
I remember the day you gave that picture to me.
You hung it on the wall and called me to come and see.
Our little apartment had windows looking out on an alley,
But the picture on the wall was like a window to a beautiful valley.

(Chorus. Both sing):
The picture on the wall Seemed like a windowpane,
with the steam risin' high in the sky above a lonesome plain.
We could almost hear the old locomotive strain,
And the red caboose was followin' The Sunset Train

(2nd verse. He sings):
Years of love went by and now you're gone.
I don't want to face another lonesome dawn.
When the mail and the papers start piling up in the hall,
The neighbors'll come in,
And find the picture still on the wall.

(Chorus. Both sing):
And the picture on the wall will seem like a windowpane,
With the steam risin' high in the sky above a lonesome plain,
And they'll almost hear the old locomotive strain,
(He sings):
But I'll be gone, and so will The Sunset Train.
(Both sing):
We'll be gone, and so will The Sunset Train.

We'll be gone,
and so will The Sunset Train.

A DJ TALKS ABOUT "THE SUNSET TRAIN".

"The Sunset Train" is not just another song from the distant past. It's a testament to how far ahead of the curve Jack and Misty were back in 1970. One of the best songs Jack Blanchard has written in his long career as a songwriter, the story is kind of like a country music take on the great Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray".

The story in a song just gets better with each listen. Jack and Misty turn in a top rate performance in a song that demands their best efforts to tell the story right.

Jack and Misty tell the tale as if they are the ghosts of the two lovers in the song... And by the end the listener will feel the love
that the two departed lovers still feel... as they look down upon the scene from the final destination of "The Sunset Train".

Dan Michel, DJ and Program Director

Ernie Ashworth

Hi every one,
ErnieAshworth.jpg (5562 bytes)It has been quite awhile since I have written a letter but I have been kept quite busy with taking care if Bettye.
I don't know if you knew it or not but Bettye fell a few weeks ago and fractured her pelvis bone and the cup it fits in. She was just getting her strength back from the lung cancer operation and then this happens. She was in the hospital for several days and since she came home she has a lady who comes to our house 2 times a week and does therapy. She has Bettye to use her walker and walks her down the hall in our house and this is really helping Bettye. I also I have her do this on days the therapy lady does not come. She will be going back to the doctor soon and I am sure he will be doing x-rays and I hope it will be good news. I want to thank Rhonnie Scheuerrman, Gary & Sherry Bradshaw for all their help for keeping the DJs world wide informed about Bettye and I appreciate all they do for me and I thank the E world wide DJs for all their support of my recordings. I want to thank the folks all over the world for their prayers for Bettye and they are appreciated. Hope all of you have a wonderful day.

Gousters-CD.jpg (6429 bytes)My name is Walt Cronin. I have collaborated with a friend and professional musician named Zander Schloss. Zander has been on the L.A. music scene for 25 years. He's the bass player for "The Circle Jerks" still on tour. He's also written with the late Joe Strummer of "The Clash," Scott Weiland of " Stone Temple Pilots," and a number of soundtracks of Alex Cox's films ( Repo Man & Sid and Nancy ) I feel very fortunate to have written with Zander on our new CD called "The Gousters" (pronounced gow-sters). It's a very eclectic sound with country, rock, traditional country and some really sweet ballads in the alternative genre. Please take an opportunity to listen and learn more about us at our website www.thegousters.com You can download our music at this website or I can mail you our CD for review or airplay.

Love Holds On

Lookin' out at the lights shinin' across the bay
Out there somewhere tonight you're a million miles away
My life's gone on without you and I hardly ever cry
But I still dream about you when the moon is full and the tides are high

In between the lines of black and white
Love holds on, love holds on
Stronger than the binds of wrong and right
Love holds on love holds on

Lookin' down at the sea from your house up in the hills
Do you ever think of me or are the memories lying still
We couldn't change our lives even if we wanted to
But when you close your eyes some restless night I'll be haunting you

In between the lines of black and white
Love holds on, love holds on
Stronger than the binds of wrong and right
Love holds on love holds on

In between the lines of black and white
Love holds on, love holds on
Stronger than the binds of wrong and right
Love holds on love holds on

This week's quotes:

"I just found out that I won Grand Prize in the God-Song lyric-writing contest for the second year in a row -- woo hoo! I truly and sincerely thank YOU GUYS for making me a better songwriter!" - quote submitted on 3/10/06 by SongU.com member, Kim M., TX

"I just have to say that after many years of searching the internet for a workable, usable, inspiring site for songwriting, I finally found it when I came across SongU.com. I feel like you really are interested in my career and want me to be successful in this business. The song evaluations have been insightful and empowering. And there is a real sense of community at SongU.com, so thank you all." - quote submitted on 3/2/06 by SongU.com member, Michael K., Canada


Hi everyone,

Remembering that life is short, Sara and I decided to give ourselves a little break and take our 3-year old daughter, Mia, to the "magical kingdom" of Disney World last week. Indeed there was magic...the beautiful weather, the amazing displays of fireworks and most importantly being able to see Mia's priceless expression as she whirled around on the spinning teacups, ran under a little waterfall in Dinoland, and hugged Winnie the Pooh.

Back home and back to reality, we have to look a little harder to find the magic. Certainly in an industry as tough as the music business, there is no magic formula. But at SongU.com, hardly a week goes by when a member hasn't written to say that they've just won a contest, signed a song agreement, been offered a contract or staff deal, gotten a hold or had their first song forwarded. And I think that's because at SongU.com, we believe that by learning to write better songs and providing outlets for those great songs, magic can happen. That's why we give our members as many of the tools they need to succeed as possible. So our members can take any of our self-paced or instructor-led courses for no additional cost. They also get their own member website and can participate in regular co-writing challenge. Plus they have regular opportunities to pitch their songs to music industry publishers, producers and artists (also at no additional cost).

Here's a bit of magic that our members have created in the past month by working hard, writing great songs and pitching them.

SongU.com Pitching: 12 Successes for 10 Writers In The Past 14 Days!
In the past two weeks alone, over 10 SongU.com members have received a note of interest and contract offers from one of our Spin N' Pitch guests. Way to go guys!

* Kendra L, Nita V, Donnie C., Shelley J, Lorna F., Bobby D. and M.B. for being offered single song agreements from a Los Angeles based hit-R&B/Hip-Hop publisher/producer.
* Wil H. whose song caught the ears of major music publisher.
* Mark K. whose song was chosen by a young and very talented female recording artist for her upcoming project.
* Donna G. whose song was picked up by The Slideshow Company for use in weddings, DVD's and other media use. Previous SongU.com members are already generating royalties from their use of songs placed with The Slide Show Company.

More Successes: Co-writing Team Sign Contracts and More...

* Congrats to the following co-writing teams we helped pair up on their recent successes: Debbie P. and John C. who recently signed two of their co-written songs to single song agreements; Rebecca H. and Bo L. who had their song "Just Like Lou" picked up by the ALS society (Lou Gehrig's Disease); Ed W. and Sandra J., who had their song recently recorded by performing songwriter Melanie Johnson.
* Way to go Bill E. who in the past month signed six songs with Nashville Publisher, Songtown Music.
* Applause for Rebecca H. on catching the ears of Skaggs Family Records...one of the bands they work with listened to her songs online at SongU.com and wants to perform her song, "California Freight Train". We hope it turns into a cut for you.
* Standing O for Anne M. who received offers for several of her songs from MTV for use in one of their TV/Network shows after hearing her songs on her website.
* Last, but not least, high-fives to Liz A. who received her first ASCAP royalty check for International airplay on one of her songs.

IT'S MAGIC: SAVE $25 NOW
Just sign up before March 31st and you'll get your first three months of courses, coaching and pitching opportunities for $55 (recurs at the regular rate of $75/quarter). As an extra signup bonus, you'll also receive a licensed version of Virtual Studio Systems Lyricist Software (a $50 value itself). And if you sign up before March 15th, we'll even throw in a complimentary song evaluation. Just use redemption code MAGIC when you sign up at www.SongU.com

Hope to see you "on campus" soon ;-)
