    A 1977 song from Suzy and the Red Stripes. I added vibraphone and xylophone.
    BTW, that's my new Kala Tenor Travel Uke I bought in Hawaii!

    Here’s a lesser-known T.Rex song from 1977 - probably written just a few months before the untimely and tragic death of Marc Bolan.

    I've been working on this for a little while and magically it fits this season. So I couldn't stop myself.

    OK, I've been humbled by how much passion y'all have brought so far. Be sure you don't miss Rex here. I get lightheaded just trying to keep up with him and I'm not doing anything ...

    Special thanks to you both, Rick and Del, for those kind kind words! And Rick, I'm so so glad that your gift has arrived and that you like it! I thought about all those vids of yours with your beautiful cat stealing the show, and so...... May you and Felix spend lots of fun quality time in days to come! Linda

    For me, this was always just a Joe Stampley song that I liked to sing along with on the radio. But when I looked it up, I found that it had a long history of being recorded since it was written in 1962. It was covered many times, by artists such as Dusty Springfield, the Bee Gees, Ike and Tina Turner, and Johnny Rivers. The guy who wrote it finally recorded it himself in 1975 but it only made it #45 on the country chart. Joe Stampley had the biggest hit with it, making it to #14 on the country chart.

    All the overdubbed instrumental parts were with my electric Vorson tenor. I also used a finger slide for one part.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    a homemade song for the season, inspired by the long hot summer of '76 - we'd never had it so hot, here in the UK! (well, not since dinosaurs roamed these lands!)
