This record wasn’t on the radar but here it is!
This summer, forest fires and smoke kept me inside with nothing to do and really great idea hit me. Out of the blue last May, my old band Silver‘s hit song, “Wham Bam Shang-a-Lang” from 1976 was part of the soundtrack to the movie Guardians Of The Galaxy ll. The song got so popular on Youtube with close to 8 million views, I thought maybe it was time to reflect on all the music I have released in my 47 years.
As many of you know, I hated that song when I recorded it but the resurgence of the song and band being a part of this blockbuster hit movie and soundtrack CD has softened me up! As I have been touring now for the last 14 years as a solo act, I never played songs from the Batdorf and Rodney or Silver days I didn’t write mainly because I was forced to do them by the record company. I started messing around in my studio and came up with an acoustic version of Wham Bam and before you knowing I was onto “Somewhere In The Night”, “You Are a Song” and a song I was always meant to sing from the first All Wood And Stones CD, “The Last Time”.
This thing was really taking shape so I started asking folks for songs that they might want to hear re-done including some obscure Batdorf and Rodney and Silver songs as well as a Batdorf and McLean song. I have also recorded two brand new songs, “Thanks To Me” and “Time To Say Goodnight”. Now after close to a year, a seventeen song CD, “Me And My Guitar” is a done deal.
Thanks so much for the years of support enjoy the music, again!
