Red Train sings the blues with Hendrix in Sweden

My son calls almost every stuffed animal he has “Red Train,” after the color of the commuter train we take to our summer cottage.

This always makes me think of two Jimi Hendrix blues songs:

Red House

 

And Hear My Train A Comin’

 

I listened to these songs over and over while driving through the blasted Croatian countryside in 1998.   Now I like having another association, as I mix them in my head for my little Red Train.
