I'm really enjoying your recent streak of youtube posts, Frank. The "one take" approach really appeals to me, as I tend to struggle once I see the red recording light staring back at me. There's something to be said for just laying it down then being done with it.

Love it Frank! As my cousin the Hematologist says when asked a medical question he can't answer, "I must have missed that lecture." So whose song is this anyway...I must have missed that lecture... ;)

thanks, fellas! one of the things i think i'm trying to do in the main  is to really identify with the stuff i like. maybe it seems like that's something a guy oughtta know at the outset.....

o'muck - tbe tune comes ftom joe callicott. it's something he recorded under this title and 'let your deal go down'.

...I'm having a hard time stopping...

Why the Hell would you want to stop for? They'll  be plenty of time for that after you're dead, as my ol' man used to say.

Fantastic singing and playing, Frankie! What you have can't be taught--it's an extension of a person's soul, and you either have it or you don't.

thanks, guys!

Stuart - I dunno about teaching, but I'm pretty sure I learned it...  :) I just paid attention to everybody I ever heard!

I'd say that it was "revealed" or drawn out by the process of listening, rather than learned--your great "musical sense" is what I was referring to. And I know what you mean about paying attention. It requires a certain "awareness" and at times seems like a lost art.

I'm sure this one has been discussed here in the past. fun to play, and to play around with. it's not something I'd describe as 'difficult', but it took me a while to find a way in (emotionally, i guess).

Great  as ever.  Surely time to stop teasing us, and to put a full Frankie album together...

Nice T shirt too- though yours fits rather less tightly than mine! :)

Frankie,

Enjoyed that great tune. Thanks for posting.

Bonus points for the hats(...good to get a practice run with the hat before March 8th! ;))

thanks, Colm & Slim.

Peter Keane got me to thinking about Bessie Jones the other day, which got me to thinking about a whole bunch of other stuff... not limited to how much I love her singing and songs in a general sense...  I used to sing one song of hers kind of obsessively, and while I haven't sung or thought about it for years and years, in my mind it belongs in a category of music I think of as:

"Songs My Kids Grew Up Thinking Were Lullabyes"

I'm not sure they would actually remember this one as much as others. I also used to sing it unaccompanied, but decided to try it with a guitar, and recorded it before I had completely decided what to do about the whole thing. One take:

That is really beautiful, Frank.  Wonderful tone on both the guitar and the voice and great matching of intonation and note-making.  Lovely free time--all the time in the world.  You sound completely in it and undistracted or preoccupied.  That is very, very fine.
All best,
John

thanks, john. i'm not sure where the free time (no pun intended) came from. of course, the original song is a work song and that alone hinges on a strong rhythmic component. when i used to sing it, i treated it with a strong rhythm as well. i can't even remember 'deciding' to treat it loosely... i just did it.

i'm glad you liked it.
