The “Blues and Gospel Train” was staged on May 7, 1964 by Granada TV. Fans who were lucky enough to get tickets - some 200 of them - were instructed to meet at Manchester’s Central Station at 7:30 that evening for a short train ride to the abandoned Wilbraham Road Station in Whalley Range.
When the train pulled in at Wilbraham Road, the audience poured out and found seats on the platform, making their way past Muddy Waters, who was singing “Blow Wind Blow.”
Here’s the full list of performances, in order of appearance:

The taping was interrupted by a heavy downpour but fittingly, Sister Rosetta Tharpe who arrived by horse and cart played 'Didn't It Rain'.
