Xylophone Track is the most direct descendant of the blues on 69 Love Songs.
It features two 'visual' metaphors for the xylophone: first a railway track, and then a ribcage.
LD Beghtol writes:
At the time we sang this, fairly early one morning, this song was the extreme high end of my falsetto and the extreme low end of Stephin's. I played my 1890s harmonium on it, then Stephin overdubbed all these clashing, out-of-tune and unturned stringed instruments. I remember a lot of port and scotch were involved in the making of this recording.
