El Tajin El dia y La noche 10. Veracruz Take the ghost train from Los Mochis to Veracruz and travel cross country, coast to coast, Pacific to Atlantic. El Tren Fantasma, The Ghost Train, is Chris Watson's 4th solo album for Touch, and his first since Weather Report in 2003, which was named as one of the albums you should hear before you die in The Guardian. El Tren Fantasma is a 2011 album by Chris Watson. It was released on 14 November 2011 by independent record label Touch Music on CD and 12 vinyl record. On January 26, 1999, the fourth episode Los Mochis to Veracruz of the fourth season of Great Railway Journeys was broadcast. The episode was presented by chef Rick Stein and featured the Ghost Train which traveled over a now-defunct railway Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México between Los Mochis to Veracruz. Chris Watson spent a month on board the train with some of the last passengers to travel this route. As sound recordist he was part of the film crew working on a programme in the BBC TV series Great Railways Journeys. Now, in this album, the journey of the 'ghost train' is recreated, evoking memories of a recent past, capturing the atmosphere, rhythms and sounds of human life, wildlife and the journey itself along the tracks of one of Mexico's greatest engineering projects.

This is one of my favourite pieces of vinyl I own. Imagine train field recordings as the glue between musique concrete and dub techno and you are halfway there. Very subtly augmented by sensitive processing and harmonics, it really enters a space of it's own. The album and this make a wonderful pair.
Agreed—this is amazing.
