I received a request from the Mysterious Muza to sing this song and I'm going to do it because she honestly frightens me!! Awwww...just kidding! I like the song, too! Hope you like it, too!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** This seems to be happening more often these days. I get a note from a 'Snapper usually asking me to 'open' an older song that I did so that he or she can join me. In this case, I received a note for the 'Hawk', my agent Julie (YANKEE_JULIE) who told me that this song (He Ain't Heavy...") has been closed for recording, and asked if I would mind re-recording it. Well, usually, I would not mind at all but I also had a note this week from NIGHTSONGS (David) who reported that "Let's Face the Music and Dance" by Diana Krall which I had recorded back in 2009 was also shut down. The original track that I recorded was by ChartBusters, and it was gorgeous, and when I looked in the available tracks, the ChartBusters track was still available. So I figured, "Hey, since it's such a nice track, I'll just play it again!" However, when I started to tag along on the new track, I noticed right away that this was NOT nearly the same quality as that of the previous track. In fact, it was amateurish and very much like the crap that SBI gives us. So, I was reluctant to redo "He Ain't Heavy..." by the Hollies because the available tracks kinda sucked as well. But I did find this one by Neil Diamond, which I hope you'll accept in it's place, Julie! Enjoy!!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Well, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mothers out there! I hope that everyone had as nice a day as I did. I spent the day 'helping' my wife do her spring gardening chores, and I can guarantee that she wants to get well even sooner than she did before!!! To be truthful, I'm not much into 'dirt' and 'growy' thingies.....except maybe for trees, because they pretty much just grow on their own. But, anyway, I found this pretty old thing (the song!!!) and thought it might be a good tune for Mother's Day! Enjoy!!!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** I was searching for a song to do tonight when I cam across this one by Rita Coolidge. I am actually surprised that over the years, I have NEVER received a request for this, nor have I thought of doing it myself. In my opinion, a great tune, and Rita Coolidge has a dusky, sexy way of singing that I always enjoyed! Hey, I hope that you enjoy this!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** This was a request fro MARYMAC (MAIR) and it's a toughie!! Great tune, and a nice arrangement, but I do have to admit that the Db section near the end REALLY caught me by surprise! Anyway, pretend I played the right note and it won't be too bad! Enjoy!

I haven't had a chance to sing lately, so I thought I take this opportunity. Hope you like it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Well, I bet you all forgot about me, eh?? I'm still around...and still have a few notes up my sleeve! Anyway, for those who have been asking about my wife...she is doing better, but she still has about 5-6 weeks in a wheelchair and then the fun begins. The worst part for her lately is the frustration of being so limited, especially now that the weather has improved here in Chicago. And then there's my cooking..... YANKEE_JULIE314 sent me a PM informing me that this song that I did several years back has been struck with the dreaded LIC disease and no longer can be recorded. She asked if I would record another version, and since this very fine SoundChoice track was available, here it is! Enjoy!!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Continuing with the 'Different' theme of this evening, this is a song that was sent to me about 2 months ago by SEXYSHA. I know you're all familiar with Sha! (No, I'm not going to do any "boobs' jokes, so relax!!) I don't think she meant it as a request, but it kind of fits my mood this evening! I hope you like it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Well, I haven't done a request from Moon Unit lately, have I?? This is one from 1962 by Mel Torme. Mel Torme????? You don't know who Mel Torme is? Well, lemme tell ya! Mel was a wonderful singer/songwriter and you probably have heard his most famous song ("The Christmas Song") thousands of times. He was a very fine singer as well, but, to be honest, I really never cared much for his recording of this song. I knew this song as it was done by Herbie Mann, who was one of the first jazz flute players. Hey, enjoy!!! You, too, Marva!!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Well, howdy, strangers!!! As I explained before, due to my wife's accidental fall, I've been (and will be for several months!) very busy caring for her. I'm learning all sorts of things I never knew before, like doing dishes, floors, and laundry. My VERY limited cooking skills are being put to the test, but there are no serious casualties yet! 'SnapTime has become scarce, but tonight my wife DEMANDED that I come down here and do some pretty music! I guess that I'm REALLY starting to annoy her! Hey, whatevah!!! This song was suggested by Misswillie because she knows that I love Randy Crawford. It's pretty, and the piano track is very nicely done. Hope you like it! Here's the Randy Crawford original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6vlSgaKeG8 Enjoy!!
