OT The Swanks - Ghost Train [Charm 6081] - 1968
http://youtu.be/5Hf5sgWKl28 great video :-)
Here's the video where I first heard it ... in 2007.



Although it was released in 1968, it was recorded in 1964.

Two of the comments on that page were posted by Lee Libby, one of the
members of The Swanks, giving quite a bit of background information on
the group and the recording.

Ken, I've now read those two comments made by Leon Otha Libby in 2015.
Many thanks for the interesting info.

I'm not surprised that "Ghost Train" was first recorded in 1964.
