"The first review is right - this is the American Dream that did Frankford El. Todd Rundgren produced this album, and the 'Good News' track is also included on Todd's (unavalailable) Something/Anything deluxe edition."

"I hope this is the 1970 album by the band American Dream. Not much is known ( or should I say remembered) about them. However they have one song called "frankford el", about the local Philly elevated train, which very rarely gets played on the "classic rock" station. It's a typical hippie - country good-time tune that tells you why you can't get to Heaven on the frankford el,'cause the frankford el goes straight to... frankford. Fans of the Hooters might get the reference."
Beyond their first album.

"This CD seems impossible to get, so what I'm looking for probably doesn't exist.
The band use to perform a song called "Fishkin Blues" which was about their manager. It was suppose to appear on their 2nd album-which never happened. I have 4 copies of the original album (2 of them still sealed). Anyone out there know anything about Fishkin Blues?"

"This record was originally on a label called Ampex and Todd Rundgren is credited as the engineer on the record. The lead guitar player in the band, Nick Jameson, went on to produce some very successful records, including Foghat. He also released a solo record in the seventies that featured a remake of what is probably the best song on the American Dream record, a song entitled "I Ain't Searchin'". While the American Dream record has its ragged moments, overall it's a solid piece of work and I'm glad to see it's available in some form because other than old vinyl it is virtually impossible to find in the States."
