Night Train To Munich

Album: Between The Wars (1995)
  • This track may have been vaguely inspired by the 1940 comedy thriller of the same name. Certainly any song that rhymes "Night train to Munich" with "Stain on his tunic" is not to be taken too seriously. As well as being very clever lyrically, it features some acoustic guitar dueling between Stewart and Laurence Juber - who also produced the album. >>

  • Lee from Test Valley, UkThe musical arrangement for this track was inspired by the Romani jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and his 'Hot Jazz' style. Al wanted to know if he could write a song which used this style as a tribute to one of his major influences.
