Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
When deciding what to post today I knew this new Mark Lanegan album covers record would start it but all bets came off as soon as his new version of the classic Brecht/Weill song "Mack The Knife" was placed. A timeless classic that has been recorded by so many that I simply had to post a few others. Enjoy!
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
It's been 21 years since my Dad passed and yet every year at this time I still get sad. Father's Day was always a marker of both our Birthdays, mine on June 20 and his on June 22. If like me, you have lost your Dad I suggest a box of tissues before playing this song, written and recorded by Peter Himmelman the night his Father passed.
This was my Father's favorite song... the great Coleman Hawkins.
This one always reminds me of my Dad, he really loved Francis Albert. This version was discovered when they were putting The Capitol Years box together, it was recorded the night before the session with Frank and the piano player working out the arrangement.
I've been waiting for this one... a bit different but I like it.
Here's a few mandatory tunes to start the weekend. Have fun, be safe and DON'T DRINK & DRIVE!!!!!
More to come over the weekend... Requests??????
don't be a jerk
