Thought I might share a snippet from a recent night at work. It's a song Willie Nelson did in perhaps my favorite movie, Honeysuckle Rose.
He's home from the road and singing it to his wife, played by Dyan Cannon. He told her "he didn't do that anymore", but later on he did and she caught him red-handed. He STILL got away with it! He's my hero!
Everything live on Korg PA4X.

Don,

A wonderful song and a superb rendition. As mentioned before your voice and the PA4X are a most enchanting combination apart from your craftsmanship. For the record:
"'Til I Gain Control Again" is a country song written by Rodney Crowell and originally recorded by Emmylou Harris in 1975.

I was inspired by Emmylou's version and recorded it in 2006 on my Korg PA80. Quite a different arrangement from Don's version , just meant as an illustration of how " arranging " can make things sounds different.............
I have included it temporarily on my youtube page:

regards
John

Don you are so comfortable in yourself – so relaxed, nice. If I keep listening to you I will get to like country more. (smile)

As hard as I may try my voice does not sound country.
Keep the songs coming Don they’re good listening.

John C.
PS, as soon as my Pa4x comes I’ll be looking for help; you did one great job with the Pa900.

John, I remember your version and it is just as good now as before!
I am a big fan of Rodney Crowell's writing and still in love with Emmy Lou! Did you ever do "Things I Wish I'd Said"? It is a another great "story" song Rodney wrote.
Thanks for sharing!

Tony, Gary and John C.,
Thank you for the wonderful comments! As my career winds down, each night is both more special and more tiring! Glad you enjoyed the song.

Don
another great song that would fit you like an old shoe would be
old rivers by walter brennen. It's a great story song and one of my favorites.

Thanks Don for pointing that out to me. I totally dig Emmylou but was not familiar with Rodney's repertoire, I am going to get into that allright !!!
