In one of those discographical glitches that tortures the want lists of unhealthily obsessive collectors, the 1960s group most commonly known as the Bold issued records under three different names. Their first single was credited to the Bold; the second to Steve Walker & the Bold, the billed frontman being their bassist and lead singer; and then simply Bold, under which name they released an album in 1969. The single credited to Steve Walker & the Bold, "The Train Kept A Rollin'"/"Found What I Was Looking For," was issued on Dynovoice in 1967. The A-side is a fierce cover of the classic most often associated with the Yardbirds; the flip is a comparatively dull Steve Walker-penned blues. Both sides of the single can be found on the Bold compilation Lullaby Opus Four, which also contains the entire 1969 album by Bold, both sides of the prior single by the Bold, and both sides of the mid-'60s single by the Esquires, who evolved into the Bold.
