The Shirt is old. I think it’s 1972 vintage. That’s old. Is it a record here?
Part of the reason for re-recording it was to see if I could still remember it. Another part is that I owe it something: it was a bit of a “signature song” during the days when I was playing and touring regularly. Not that it was so popular - it got more of an “oh-no-here-comes-that-bloody-song-again!” kind of response. Still it stuck.
It was on an old vinyl album and I’m thinking of dusting it down for the next CD (stop laughing - I really am).
Here’s a thing. In an attempt to engage all my… er…fans, friends and even accidental visitors to my website, I’ve
hit upon the game-changing ploy of posting polls on my blog. See, you can vote each song on or off the CD. Fun, eh? I’m conscious that depending on how the voting develops it could be a short CD - but wanna play? Even if you wander over and arbitrarily click a button it’ll show the world my site is at least getting some traffic…
Here’s the link:
Will The Shirt get a second life?? Can you tell me what to fix in the recording??
