This is my last one for this morning as the rain has stopped and the dogs need walking. Number 83 in the book it is, "I Will Wait For You."

Hi Keith,

My we have been a busy boy this morning, two good tunes you did.

The first one A Whiter Shade of Pale I knew from way back when I was in a band and it was a very good version, and the organ sounded very good.

The second one I Will Wait For You does not ring any bells at all but was still a good tune to listen to and nicely voiced.

Hi Keith Enjoyed both tunes. Particularly liked Whter shade of pale as it was on the go when I was courting my now wife. Brings back memories. Liked the organ sounds and the Sunday interpretation of it. May have one to post later. Off for lunch for retired police. Enjoyed my listens. John

Hi ALL,

Heres number 28 from said book, a really nice sloppy slushy one by Nat Cole, this is totally out of my comfort zone
but its good to try new things out now and again, so heres my version of Unforgettable and you may wish you could when you hear it

Hi Two Amigos. I am just wondering whether it is worth it to continue posting. However I have recorded another one written by Charles Chaplin and may be appropriate Smile. Hope you enjoy your listen, back to practice for tomorrow. John

Hi John T.

That was a nice version of that song, some real good voices you used in there and the choir coming in sounded good.
So I did enjoy listening to it, am I going to keep posting music in the challenge, yes definitely there's a few more
that I would like to put my stamp on, but just taking my time about it and not rushing.

Some, if not most of you, will be able to remember back in the 50's when a group of accordionists would play on the Saturday/Sunday night variety shows - Billy Cotton, London Palladium etc. For this next one, which is number 79 in the book, I have tried to emulate that act with, "Days Of Wine And Roses."

Hi Keith,

I can just about remember Billy Cotton band show but I can't remember that tune,
but it has a nice melody line to it and you played and voiced it very well.

Hi Keith Maybe it was the accordion which seemed to give it a Parisian feel. All for lots of wine and a few roses. A nice pleasant listen. John

Thanks to Brian and John for commenting.
No 68, "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" is a contemplative song with lots of minor chords., I like to think of it as a day of dark thundery rain clouds which finally part to bring a shaft of sunshine. Bowed cellos and basses predominate and are finally lightened by a solo clarinet.

Hi Keith. A little bit melancholy, you would think from the title it would be a jolly tune. Liked the sounds and style. Enjoyed the listen. May have look at one as the weather is poor and the golf maybe off. John

Hi Keith,

Updated list, and just listened your you post, a nice bouncy version of that song and using my favorite instrument the organ.

Was hoping to do some more post but , the emulsion tin has appeared, and a request for some backing tracks from an old mate
of mine who's doing a charity show in november has put a bit of a brake on things, will see how I get on.

Hi Everyone I seem to remember this one in the book. Played it as a swing and played it through three times just to lengthen it. Hope you enjoy your listen of Puff The magic dragon.

It is Sunday today so I have again chosen church (classical) organ for today's effort. It is No 48 in the book - "All My Loving." As it is such a short piece I have played it twice but the second time with a more sustained churchy feel.
