Yep. We were tremendously lucky to live where we live. Other than some downed tree branches, very full lakes, and some neighbors' roof tiles, there's barely a sign that a hurricane came barreling through here. And at its fortunate that as Ian passed through here, we were on the western side of the eyewall.
Hopefully today, I can actually sit and listen to SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET.
Just finished up the CD version which I bought at Barnes & Noble in Midland, MI. The CD total time is 35:55 in length. The first track "Childhood" when I heard it on headphones is kinda worn out or something like pops or scratches (did anyone noticed)?? Great remake of "Pata Pata". The song "Goo Goo Eyes" has that "Love Potion # 9" feel. The remake of "Time After Time" (sung by Lani Hall) is great. I thought it was the 1984 song by Cyndi Lauper (The late Miles Davis did Lauper's remake on 1985 "You're Under Arrest"). The song "Sneaky Pete" is a great instrumental which I thought it was a tribute to the late guitarist Sneaky Pete Kleinow. Co-writer Bobby (Hart) Weinstein remake of "Going Out Of My Head" has Alpert doing part of the vocals. I thought it was another great CD!!
Yes, those are on the two songs that are coproduced with Jeff Lorber -- Tickle Time and Just a Dream Away. The credits (including typo) must have been copied'n'pasted, with just a couple of changes necessary. (The word "Programmed" is spelled with only one "m" a few times, too. But both spellings pass spellcheck so that's probably why that got missed.)
This CD has lots of entertaining music. Very well done! Clearly Herb is still enjoying the creation of new musical art. I am glad that he is willing to spend the time and money to publish it so we can benefit as well.
If anyone has some background information about some of the musicians mentioned on the CD, with whom I am less familiar, such as Jon Gilutin or Mitchell Long, that would be interesting to hear about them.
