"Midnight Express To Love City" by Spaceship Earth is a prime example of mid period private boogie. I know absolutely nothing about the group except they hailed from Los Angeles and this was their only release on the private Spaceship Earth label. This 12" and the post-apocalyptic cult film "The Quiet Earth" were both released in 1985. When I did an image search for the song, some images from the film came up as well as the crappy scan I found of the record sleeve. "The Quiet Earth" scared the hell out of me as a kid. In contrast, this jam is all about going on a space train to a chilled out place called Love City somewhere in the middle of the universe. One can only hope that the Earth's survivors will end up in Love City after the apocalypse goes down.
