1. Don Thomas (born Charles Thomas) is an African-American soul singer. He was a member of The Drifters between 1969 and 1971. He is best remembered for his 1973 single ‘Come On Train’ which achieved massive popularity on the UK Northern Soul scene.

2. Don Thomas. Acoustic, new age, instrumental music (1995 to the present). Known cd’s include “Sounds of Autumn”, “Sounds of Summer”, “Sounds of Spring”, “Sounds of Winter”.

About: Don began his music career at the age of nine playing in his school band in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Starting with brass instruments, then moving into drums and piano, by the age of 14 he picked up his first guitar. This is where he found his life’s harmony!

Through a kind smile and a soft spoken demeanor, Thomas continues to share his love for acoustic music. His all original compositions are delicate, light and clean in structure, exquisitely mesmerizing. Following a two year national tour across America, he became inspired to advance his experience and the ability to share his own music by learning the art of production and recording. He trained and studied with various music industry professionals while dreaming of building his own recording studio.

He married his wife and soul mate, Teri, and together they moved to New York in 1995 where he built and established his private studio.

    Ian Parton's version sounds better in my opinion. He has done a great job.

    "Come On Train" - yet another classic rediscovered Northern Soul track introduced to a new audience following a massive TV ad campaign. It's been remixed by Ian Parton for the 'Life Flows Better With Visa' campaign. It's always been a favourite of mine, and it's great to hear it on mainstream TV, featuring Bill 'CrutchMaster' Shannon, a dancer and performer. Disabled? I don't think so.
