'Boogie Train' - just a feel good rock n' roll tune. Music by Foghat and lyrics by contest winner Tom Mix who entered a contest asking fans to add lyrics to Foghat's originally all-instrumental tune, "495 Boogie," from their latest CD, 'Last Train Home
Best known for his classic hit "Just When I Needed You Most" Randy had been working on this project when he passed away on Jan 12, 2004. Always a lover of Stephen Foster's music, this CD is a moving tribute by Randy to these amazing traditional songs.

A Moving Farewell, June 22, 2006 By TLCSSD
This is a great and beautiful recording, with Vanwarmer's best singing in many years. Listen to it on the best quality sound system you can find. It's not only a respectful tribute to a songwriter he clearly admires but is also an unexpectedly innovative and at times witty one-man show (Randy plays all the instruments). That he completed work on this record a few days after learning of his illness, and that he was destined to die on the anniversary of Foster's death, gives the recording an additional element of depth and poignancy. This is Randy's best record since "The Beat of Love" and "Terraform", way back in the early '80s. He is missed.
