"The Summer Knows" by Michel Legrand is the theme song from the film "Summer of '42", a 1971 American comedy-drama film. This song has since become a pop standard, being recorded by such artists as Peter Nero (who had a charting hit with his 1971 version), Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Andy Williams and Barbra Streisand, to name but a few.

There is a really nice instrumental version of this on YouTube:

Arthur .. you have done a great recording here. It cannot be an easy piece to play as there are some very unusual harmonies.

Peter S .. I reckon this would be your cup of tea if you can find the music for it!

In support of the Musical Challenge I would like to post here my first effort.

It's a lovely song by Donna SUMMER called 'Last Dance'

Recorded on my Roland AT80SL organ.

Hi Peter,
