Hey Family Campers
Thank y’all for watching this mini-concert! I’m sorry we didn’t get to be with you this summer. We missed swimming in the Blue Hole and paddling down the Frio River (and the milkshakes that followed).
I have enjoyed some of the beneﬁts of playing shows from home: pulling out the vintage guitar I won’t take on an airplane, playing the upright piano of my childhood (recently fetched from Mississippi), or having my son sit in on drums. But since I don’t get to see your reactions or have a little in-person-chat, please feel free to follow up by email if y’all want.
I ﬂubbed a line on the last verse of “Spector” and wanted to give the correct lyrics here:
There’s a pretty little tune the Trio sings
You wrote it for your Dad I read among other things
“To know him is to love him and I do…”
Would you say the line still applies to you?
The Trio refers to Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris and their album release from 1987 where they cover a song by Phil Spector. If you want to learn more about the singer, Darlene Love, and her relationship with Spector, check out Twenty Feet From Stardom, a wonderful documentary about background singers.
Thanks so much to Cary and the staff at LLFC for suggesting this idea!
