More New Songs Added to the Solo Show Repetoire

April 23, 2017

New songs for the solo show:

Luther Played the Boogie Woogie (Johnny Cash)
You Do Something to Me (Sammy Davis, Jr.)
Wichita Lineman (Glen Campbell)
Me and My Shadow (Peggy Lee)
Jim and Jack and Hank (Alan Jackson)

Although I’ve known Wichita Lineman since it came out in ’67 (when still in the womb, of course), I’d never been able to do the song justice with just guitar and voice, but suddenly, I heard it — a Eureka moment after prolonged gestation. It took me 6 months to discover the right arrangement for La Mer (Charles Trenet). Far longer for this song!
