I became an instant Swansway fan when I first saw them perform Soul Train on The Tube.

Loved their only album The Fugative Kind and their singles especially  Illuminations, Soul Train and When The Wild Calls.

They only had two UK hit singles Soul Train at number 20 and Illuminations at number 57.

After the band split Rick and Maggie went on to form Scarlett Fantastic and Maggie later became Mighty K.

Robert Shaw released a couple of albums under the name Mighty Math

    ’84 was such an innovative year for pop music. Vaguely familiar with Soul Train, looking forward to hearing the album. Thanks again!
