A few new numbers added to the repetoire (with my fav artist version in parens):
We’ll Be Together Again (Jackie Paris, Sammy Davis)
A Fool Such as I (Hank Snow)
Change Partners (Fred Astaire)
You’ll Never Walk Alone (Christine Hamilton/original ’45 recording)
Here’s the original cast recording of You’ll Never Walk Alone, a delight to listen to.
If you’ve never heard the original cast recording of Carousel (not my favorite musical, mind you), this track, and especially, the singer, Christine Hamilton, a contralto who debuted the role of Nettie Fowler on B’way, are really fine, recorded at the apex of American popular culture.
I just love LOVE how Texans are so easy to get along with. In general, but here I’m talking about people in business. Open and friendly and constructive and problem-solving and accomodating and welcoming. Everywhere I go in this state!
Additions to the repetoire (with artist associated with the song in parens, at least in my mind):
♦ Someone To Watch Over Me (Gertrude Lawrence)
♦ Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell)
♦ You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You (yes, I know the Deano version, but I like Scatman Crothers best)
♦ Mr. Bojangles (Sammy Davis, Jr.)
Based on a recent analysis, webcasting (not terrestrial) stations have played our album “Richie Kaye’s Music & Mirth with Tony LaVorgna” nearly 65,000 times.
This is rather a lot more than we’d known before or even thought possible.
The revenue is a pittance in comparison, believe me, but the popularity of the tracks is truly heartening.
New songs added to the solo repetoire:
- Time Don’t Wait (Marty Stuart)
- That Old Feeling (Doris Day)
- Moulin Rouge (Line Renaud)
- Danke Schoen (Wayne Newton) — I’m not singing that high, believe me! But with a key change every 16 bars, when you’re not still in your teens, ya gotta start real low if you don’t want to be singing like a castrato by the end!
- Wish You Were Here (Eddie Fisher)
- The Trouble with Drinkin’ — Aaron Lee Tasjan
- Why They Call It Fallin’ — Lee Ann Womack
