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)
