Recording information by PCSongmanGOLD

Duet version, as recorded before EQ & Reverb

This is for the...
Everyone's A Winner Music Festival Challenge/Showcase Thingy LIX
Please join us. No judging, just a great way to be heard on SingSnap.

If you've been following the Music Festival Challenge thread you'll recall that Heather posted an outstanding rendition of Creeque Alley. She also requested duet partners and I couldn't resist. This is also a work in progress as additional harmony may yet be added.

*Song Trivia
"Creeque Alley" is an autobiographical song written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas in 1967, narrating the story about how the group was formed. The title of the song is derived from the road Creeque Alley, home to a club in the Virgin Islands where the Mamas and the Papas spent time. The third song on the album The Mamas and the Papas Deliver, the song charted #5 on Billboard Pop Singles.

The lyrics of the song mention, directly or indirectly, many artists and bands who were part of the music scene at the time including Zal Yanovsky, John Sebastian, Roger McGuinn, Barry McGuire, The Mugwumps, and The Lovin' Spoonful. Several locations important to The Mamas and The Papas story are also mentioned e.g. The Night Owl Cafe in Greenwich Village.
