*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** "Hi, M..it's 105F headed for record breaking..I need something to cool me off. I thought about asking you to do a song called How'd I Wind Up in Jamaica with your oboe but instead maybe you might like a song called Through the Years, by Kenny Rogers who still sings fine even though his last face lift was a little snug. I am sending him a tweet asking the name of his doc so he can fix my derierre...I hate dragging in the sand when I go to the beach!" Well, okay, then. I'm going to let you all guess just whom of our very fine, SingSnap ladies this request was from. TOUGH tune, but I hope you like it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Well, I could have sworn that I recorded this one before, so when I received this request from NIGHTSONGS (David), I figured I could just send him a link to the older recording. But, surprise, surprise! This is a VERY nice track that I hadn't done yet! So, thanks, David! Great request! I hope everyone enjoys it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** I know that the music tonight doesn't sound like it, but I am REALLY still in a happy mood! But speaking of HAPPY, I got this request from MRSBOP (Moon Unit) just an hour or so ago, and her timing was just right! I was looking for a song to do on flute and this works pretty well. I like Willie Nelson a lot, but I confess: I never heard this song before. But like Moon Unit said in her request, "It is a simple tune, not a challenge really, but sweetly beautiful and poignant." Really. She said that. But she be the Moon Unit, so she can get away with talking (or typing) like that. Me...Not so much. (I wish I had her drugs!) Anyway, what she said. Hope you like it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** Ho, Ho, Ho!!!! I'm in a good mood this evening....my wife and I are celebrating 40 YEARS of married bliss today! Well, maybe not bliss, but pretty damned nice! So, you say..."Why are you hiding in your studio on your wedding anniversary, Mr. MLP??" And I say, "Because my wife REALLY likes 'Game of Thrones', and I don't!!" But, as usual, I digress... I recorded this song several years back, and it's another one of my tunes that SingSnap has made unavailable for recording. Thanks to CHAPLAINJUDYLYNN for calling my attention to this, and I'm going to record it again, in her key! Hope you like it!

*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS*****DUETS***** This was a request from PEGGYJOY (PJ) and although it's a wonderful tune by one of my favorite artists, I really struggled with it. Anyone who's ever worked 'live' knows that the most difficult types of song to perform is the dreaded rubato ballad. But rubato ballads are also absolutely some of the best music EVAH!! Onstage, there's always a lot of wordless communication that goes on among the musicians and singer, and we just don't have that opportunity here, do we? So anyway, it IS a gorgeous melody, and I hope that some of you join me! By the way, if my horn gets in your way, just kick me, eh??? Enjoy!! (If you don't like it, kick Peggy!!)

*****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!
