Hi Brian,
A nice tune well thought out and performed. :D :D (I can't think why I am thirsting for a coke. :) )

John,
A lovely tune and nice choice of voices. :D :D

Ken,
I do like that tune, nicely voiced and played. :D :D

I played this using the automatic accompaniment on the Lowrey digi piano, I hardly know how to operate it as I usually use the piano on its own. There is some hesitancy as my mind was focusing on how to change sounds etc. It isn't too bad though. :) :)

Hi Ken,

Nice simply but effective number you played there with some good voices.

Brian007 :D

Having a problem with my right elbow at the moment so giving the keyboard a rest for a few days till it stops aching as much
hopefully will get something posted then. :(

Hi Ken. Not one I can recall. From the title I thought it would be lively swing. However I enjoyed my listen all the same. Some dramatic sounds. John

Hi John,
A nice version of I Belong to Glasgow, I am about one and a half miles from the Glasgow boundary and you wouldn't be calling it dear old Glasgow town if you could see the weather right now. :roll:
Brian

Hi Ken, I was intrigued by "I've Told Every Little Star" and had a look on youtube. It goes back to the early 1930's and has been recorded in many different styles from Mario Lanza to John Coltrain.
I enjoyed your version.
Brian

I Don't know how to Love Him
I actually made this a while ago. I had the sheet music but was not happy with the arrangement so I made my own. I hope you like it.

Hi Ken,

Your first Post I love you dearly, I can remeber and you played that well. Your second post is
not a tune I to can recall but it has a nice melody line and you played it well and a good choice of voices

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Brian D.

That piano sure sounded very good to me, and you certainly played that well and with a lot of feeling, and the
arrangement sound perfect to me

Hi ALL,

Here`s my version of this classic ballad, "It's Only Make Believe" written by Jack Nance and American country music artist Conway Twitty.
easy enough to play but selecting the right instruments and arranging it is another story, anyway here you go.

Hi Brian
Your choice of voices fitted perfectly, well played. I remember Billy Fury singing a brilliant version, I think he was very underrated.

Hi Brian D.

Billy Fury was a fantastic singer and as you said very underrated, if I remember rightly he just started to make a comeback
and he had a heart attack and died, such a shame and a waste of such talent.

Hi folks, I am pleased to say that I am back. After a major computer malfunction requiring a new machine I am back on line. I am pleased to see so many posts from the regulars and I have had a quick listen to them all. Hope to get Audacity and Box installed this evening and if so will be recording tomorrow.
