Transatlantic Railroad Discography

There appear to have been two groups called Transatlantic Railroad in the Bay Area in the mid 1960's. The group decribed here were formed at San Rafel High School in Marin County in 1965. The original line-up was Steve Myers (guitar), Kent Housman (guitar), Jamie Kindt (bass) and Ron Van Bianchi (drums). The group played in mid-sized venues in the area including shows on the same bill as The Warlock before they changed their name to the Grateful Dead. Vocalist Jim Monroe joined the band at some point in late 1965. Thr group recorded two track for a planned souvenir album which was not released. These tracks were eventually released on the What A Way To Come Down compilation. Mark Finch became lead vocalist in 1967 and the group released a single in 1968. At this time they also recorded material for an album but this was not released. The album material was released in 2001. The group continued with some personnel changes into the 1970s. They split up in 1971.
