Hello and welcome to the world of the Trainiac! Im not sure about songs that are not on albums - but one thing you might want to check out is the solo album done by Pat - I haven't really listened to it, although I have all other Train albums. So, Ive been thinking I need to check it out.
Welcome! We are a great bunch of fans if i do say so myself! Everyone truly loves the band as musicians and people. THe Alive at Last disc is a great one and i highly recommend it too. I will become addicted to listening to them once they arrive!
You might also want to check out the DVD the band did with Martina McBride called CMT Crossroads. It shows the band's versatility and Pat's amazing range vocally. Other bands have done similar projects on this show but I think you'd enjoy it. I know I did. Got my copy on Amazon, if I remember correctly. Welcome to the club of great Train fans!
you have helped me identify a few cds/dvds i didnt know existed. im very tempted to click and buy them all now but none of my studio albums have arrived yet (post is just tooooooo slow round here!!) so im going to impatiently wait for them to arrive before i splash out any more.
thanks for all the comments and suggestions. im looking forward to coming back and discussing the music once ive given everything a proper listen :)
Welcome Paul. You will love the rest of the studio albums. They are far and away better than CA37. They show more complex song writing and a real edge, which CA37 has none of. I do wish Train (OK, Pat) would write songs with the band again, instead of writing with outside writers like he did for the new CD. Too many fluffy pop songs on the CD and a few songs really make your cringe.(geared toward a younger crowd, and that's where the money is) But if you like it, that's cool too. Give us your opinion after you hear them. Many import CD singles have bonus cuts, so look out for them. Also, get the Japan import of My Private Nation, as it has a bonus cut. And be sure to get Pat's great solo album.
I am listening to the Itunes Session by Train now. It's got a few acustic songs on it that are on the albums but it's a nice change and you can really hear the vocals in them. I'd recommend that too.
Hey Paul, The admin at Friends of Train answered your inquiry.
Thanks for your post. I am enjoying this music
