Johnny Duncan & The Blue Grass Boys – “Last Train To San Fernando” –

In a recent article titled 10 Records That Changed My Life, Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson named “Last Train to San Fernando” by Johnny Duncan & his Bluegrass Boys, saying:

“Around this time, I heard a song on the radio and I really liked it, and I convinced my parents to let me buy a copy with my pocket money. It was folky and it had something of a skiffle beat, which was becoming the rage in England. It was Last Train to San Fernando, by Johnny Duncan and his Bluegrass Boys. It was an incredible piece of Americana music, but interestingly, it’s really a calypso song but done in a skiffle kind of way.”
