HERE'S TO ALL THE SINGERS plus BABY, COME BACK plus IN THE MIDST OF THIS




Three good songs  --- I'll add stories about them soon but later.

HERE'S TO ALL THE SINGERS  # 1

I wrote this song in Kingston, Ontario, thinking about all the singers I knew -- failing financially --- but succeeding in the gardens of dreams and loves.  Thinking of myself, also.

(2)   BABY, COME BACK TO ME (2nd of 3 song trilogy) What is very rare about this song (which I wrote natch like most of the others) is that IT IS A BLUES SONG THAT CHANGES FROM MAJOR TO MINOR KEY WITHIN ONE VERSE... THEN reverts to the MAJOR KEY!!! How often do U hear this, folks? Well, in this song U hear it every verse!




3.IN THE MIDST OF THIS (#3 of the trilogy) This is a fine song on its own. Written in the fields north of Brampton in a period when I was particularly lonely.... In the midst of this, WHERE ARE YOU? You get the drift... but I wasn't making the shit up. It was true and blue and as deep in my shaken psyche as we're allowed to toot... in any kind of public. FINE SONG, no question...
