Is there anybody that holds this track, or do we have to wait till Eddie
throws this one on the Zealots lounge too ?

Ferry

This may be it!
There's Something About a Train That's Magic

One of the best commercial jingles of all time, sung by Richie Havens.

According to some material I contributed to Ron Chrisley's wonderful mailing list and UK fan resource in the 1990s, Eddie scored music for numerous commercials that won or were nominated for Clio awards, the industry awards for advertising.

Dedicated fan that I was, I had called the Clio organization back in 1994 to ask for all of Eddie's Clio nominations and wins!

They told me the following:

Eddie was the winner in the scoring category in 1988 for the Amtrak "California Zephyr" commercial.

He was a finalist in 1989 for the Amtrak "Empire Builder" commercial.

Eddie was a finalist in two entries in 1992: Bermuda Tourism (for a commercial entitled "Pink Places") and Martel Cognac ("The Art of Cognac").

Clio didn't have a website back in '94, but they do now! And if you do a search you will find other Clio citations for commercials with Eddie's work:

Mission Impossible :30
Gilbey's Gin
Krimstein/Clapps Ltd., New York
TV & Cinema, 1995

Thread :30
DuPont Lycra
Young & Rubicam, New York
TV & Cinema, Certificate, 1995

Amtrak California Zephyr commercial music (low-fi audio only, mashed up with Microsoft Train Simulator graphics)

Amtrak Empire Builder music (low-fi audio only, mashed up with Microsoft Train Simulator graphics)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHbsDvhwnSM

It's like "Theme of Secrets" for trains!

This YouTube video contains low-fi versions of three of my Amtrak commercials - 'California Zephyr,' 'Empire Builder,' and 'Southwest Chief': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0MIkduzGx4&feature=related
I will upload high-quality versions of these and the full "Something About a Train That's Magic" song at some point to the Zealots Lounge. The voice-over was the late stage actress Colleen Dewhurst who I recorded myself just a few years before her death.

You're welcome, Ferry. And thanks, Eddie.
M, I know you know how to keep things respectful.

@B: I think I will only be yawning AFTER the show, but my mouth will probably fall open DURING the show ;-).

Thank you, Master!
Amtrak it is...
I remember seeing your Clio Award at the Zinc studio 16 years ago.
It's like flashback!

Ben, thank you for the precious information.
