This is my first post to this message board. While searching for some Breton tunes I came accross a song that by its' title would seem ideal. Rond de Saint-Vincent it is the type of tune that migrated to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia and then to Louisiana with the Acadians. Here is a link to the score and a midi file: http://tonyupton.tripod.com/brittany.html
I recorded a Connie Smith song. Of course, in the end, we never know what will ultimately make the album.
Thanks for sending your suggestions. After our weekend break, I will hope to begin a recording journal; complete with photos and launch a studio web cam for our next session. Ben Hughes....let me know if you will be in Nashville, in the coming week, to host a LIVE studio web cast!!!

Beneath still waters
Today I stumbled across a live recording I have of the late Keith Whitley because a friend of me made me remember that concert, recorded just weeks before he died during a tour he made through Europe. Keith knew a good song when he heard it. Rarely he performed with this song, (lyrics below) but in Netherlands he did. I had goosebumps allover, after all these years I still remember that. Penned by THE greatest storytellers of them all: Tom T. Hall. and recorded on his album "The Rhymer and Other Five and Dimers" This song invites for close harmonies and lord knows that I would like to hear that from you ragers "I Flew Over Our House Last Night" That old Kentucky moon was shinin' bright as day The stars were twinklin' in the milky way The pilot said "If you look close, there's Frankfort on the right" I flew over our house last night Thirty thousand feet below me, you were fast asleep And thirty thousand feet above I almost stopped to weep So close and yet so far away, so wrong and yet so right I flew over our house last night For just one second I thought I was back in town The man your friends all say has only brought you down The airline hostess asked me sir "Are you sure that you're alright" I flew over our house last night Thirty thousand feet below me, you were fast asleep And thirty thousand feet above I almost stopped to weep I wondered did you toss n' turn as I roared out of sight I flew over our house last night

Good Rhonda; have you ever done a pure Gospel album? If not , maybe it is time. Just a humble suggestion.
Chorus medley; just sing the choruses of these songs in the order you choose; POWERFUL!!!!!!! Album title: WALKING At The Cross I Have Decided To Follow Jesus I'll Fly Away Just Over In The Glory Land Everybody Will Be Happy Over There Oh I Want To See Him We Shall See The King God bless you MIGHTILY!!!!!!! # 7 is God's number of perfection!
Thank you for the song recommendations.
I haven't heard some of those. I look forward to recording a gospel project someday.

I'd love to hear a studio version of "Last Best Place."
