Trains and Boats and Planes

Burt Bacharach studied music at McGill University and the Mannes School of Music. In the 1950s and the early 1960s he was the pianist, arranger and bandleader for Marlene Dietrich with whom he toured. He is undoubtedly one of the all time greats. He teamed with lyricist Hal David and others to write many popular songs in the 1960s amd 1970s.

Trains and Boats and Planes was first recorded in June 1965 by Billy J Kramer, who was one of the big names in the Mersey sound of the sixties. He was part of the famous Brian Epstein stable and The Beatles wrote songs for Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas. He was also extremely successful in the states. Billy J Kramer was originally William Ashton, but at that time most pop stars had stage names. The name Kramer picked from a telephone directory and it was John Lennon suggested adding the J to make it more interesting.
