anglo italian

This is a song i 've been meaning to post on the block ages ago but somehow always escaped my intention.Not your usual balearic cut but after all it's quite a bummer deciding on what is balearic and not.This is result of a british hammond legend trying his luck on the 80's Italo scene wit ha track produced and made in Italy.Brian Auger needs no introduction i guess.One of the most gifted keyboard players to have walked this earth he is an iconic figure in modern music.Brian had flirted with Italy in his younger days as a mod with tracks like Gatto Nerro which was an italian version of his big hit Black Cat.Night Train To Nowhere is nothing less than what you would expect from such a charismatic music figure.Probably one of the best Italo singles ever even though produced by an English man.Check You Tube for a ''live'' version of the track recorded probably for Italian TV where Brian is trying too hard to look cool while some girls are lip singing behind him.Great!!

For some reasons, it flashes me to the first time I saw Luc Besson's "Leon" more than 10 years ago!
