Sunday Pipes #76 (#TBS)

(#TBS = Throw Back Sunday)

I spent more time searching my  EHDs for this picture than I did writing the post.

As a young boy, there was an eclectic mix of music in our house; church organ, polka, big band, Top40 (77 WABC!), and in my room, and much to my parent’s dismay.. early Alice Cooper & Humble Pie.

This picture was taken approximately 50 years ago (give or take). I remember that mom and I were playing “Spanish Eyes” and I was learning the unique strumming pattern used throughout the song. Mom is playing the Hammond B3 we had at the house and I think that may be my youngest sister, Debra with  her back to the camera, but maybe not)

(Note: I was playing  an Antique White Fender Mustang long before Kurt Cobain made it popular. For you gearheads, it was playing through a Fender Priceton Reverb amp, (tube). My dad did good in buying that first guitar/amp combo for me. If I saved that pair, what would they be worth today?)

Anyway. . .

Sunday Pipes #76,  Charlie Singleton’s rendition of Spanish Eyes, recorded back in 2016.

What I wouldn’t give to have one more chance to duet with mom, (and that head of hair)

    Thanks for posting this, Ray. This song was a favorite of my in-laws; they were excellent dancers and always requested this song at weddings when Theresa and I were younger.
