New songs I’ve added to the solo acoustic/voice repetoire:
High Society Calypso (Louis Armstrong)
Rhinestone Cowboy (Glen Campbell)
Key to the Highway (Brownie McGhee)
You Put Something Better Inside Me (Roger Daltrey)
NOMA Music out of Los Angeles has taken into inventory several recordings Tony LaVorgna and I made for “A NYC Subway Christmas.” They’ll be made available for syndication in film and television programming over the next few years.
More great songs added to the solo (guitar/voice) repetoire:
You Put Something Better (Roger Daltrey)
You Can’t Fail me Now (Bonnie Raitt)
Still Learning How to Fly (Rodney Crowell)
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!
