Tins!

July 30, 2014

Dear Readers,

Somewhere along the line, I began to collect tins- decorative tins, English tins, collectible tins, all kinds of tins. Living in an efficiency apartment, a small efficiency, they began to take up room, then more room, then THE room.

Lately I’ve been able to go through them, save favorites and put aside those I could part with. Turned out there were about 2-3 hundred in all sizes that I could part with – without taking away any favorites.

I placed them on the floor, and invited neighbors in to fill a bag or two of any favorites they wanted to keep.

Six did. That was fun, but it still left me with quite a few.

Recently when I was in the Salvation Army Store, I noticed that on their shelves, they had ONE tin. So I thought to myself, they are going to have a few more if I have anything to do with it.

Today, after taking down the art work to CD #8 to the recording studio, I stopped by the Salvation Army receiving dock, and unloaded the car. It had a trunk and back seat full of tins. Turns out there were about 140 of all sizes.

NOW the Salvation Army has 141 tins! Can’t wait to see them on the shelves!

10 Year Music Project – DONE! 3:57 7/16/14

July 18, 2014

Dear Musea Readers,

Yesterday, July 16, 2014, I finished recording my 10 year and 9 CD voice and guitar project started in the summer of 2004.

My audio engineer Nolan Brett ran the machine after holding up 3 fingers, and I finished the third and last back up vocal harmony part to my original song titled “ROLL” with the line

“OH DARLIN”…ROLL” with my hands waving in the air!

Time 3:57 PM 7/16/14.*

I _ WAS _ DONE !!!

———————————————————

Today, for the first time, I counted up all the songs from the 9 different CD projects (7 done and 2 yet to release, then the total set will be released as my OUTSIDE THE BOX SET!) to see how many songs there were in total.

For all these years I never knew how many I would end up with. Basically I was recreating my song list from the 17 years of playing the Box Office Concerts at the Inwood Theater, Dallas.

I knew my first CD was 30 songs – I even titled it “30”. And I knew the last one we finished yesterday had 22. But the others varied, with usually closer to 12-15. So, I added them up (my secret aim was somewhere around 120 – 150)

Carried the so and so number …. WAIT … it’s looking to come out even….. NO!… FATE is STEPPING IN ….

FINAL TOTAL = EXACTLY 150 SONGS !!!!!

————————————————————–

This earlier instrumental from the set is a favorite and good for celebrating! (Grey Green Eyes)

Hit Song Challenge (3 to 6 String of Hits Club)

May 27, 2014

HIT SONG  CHALLENGE. Most of the music business (80%) is controlled by 3 companies, Universal, Sony, Warners. This is an open challenge for those three.

CHALLENGE: Here is a list of hit makers from 1955-75. Big 3 this is your challenge, see if you can match it from your roster of hit songs from 1995-Now.

BACKGROUND
When I was growing up we had a consistent stream of hits. We thought they would never end. (Time period about 1955-1975)
There were the major artists: Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Dylan, Beach Boys, etc.. There were also hundreds of one hit wonders.
But even more important, there were so many artists that had at least a string of 3,4,5 or 6 major hits. Never in history was there such an out pouring of hit records.
