Description
I have remixed this for the Summer of Love Challenge, though I posted the original last year at this time. I think it fits perfectly under that heading, though I'm not sure if I got the genre right. It's sort of a 'Light Rock', but I suppose Rockabilly comes close.

Lyrics
Lovely summer Days

Lovely summer days with blue, blue skies,
and seas of aqua blue,
Take me back to happy days, the time I first met you.
I never ever can forget, the day you first walked by,
All the guys just stopped and stared; all I could do was sigh.

So tell me little darlin' when you close your eyes,
Is it me, you still see before you?
And did the time just fly?
Do you remember how we danced, the sand between our toes?
While the Stars looked down, from way up high,
As the sea just ebbed and flowed.

Seems like only yesterday, Oh! How the time has flown.
'Never thought this love would last,
Yet it's grown and grown.

Lookin' back to times gone by, I wouldn't change a thing.
We've always found the time to laugh ,
Whatever life would bring.
Lovely summer days and blue, blue skies and the sea all aqua blue,
Are only mem'ries of the past, but what I've got is you.

(Break instrumental.)

Seems like only yesterday, we met and fell in love,
The time has flown. The love has grown...
An' I thank Heav'n above.

Lovely summer days and blue, blue skies and the sea so aqua blue.
All memories I've loved and kept... and so complete with you.

Blue, blue skies... Blue blue skies.... and an aqua sea,
So content, just to be... you an' me.

Maurice Vizard

Nice tune
really laid back time for a margarita and hammock under a palm tree or a pine if your not in the tropics. The slide parts makes it all the better. Great artist you are. Never stop.

Hi Richard
Nice of you to listen again. Believe me I'm not in the Tropics by any means, it's about the wettest summer we've had in years in UK. As regards your comment "Don't Stop", LOL I'm doing my best not to stop, but at my age it ain't getting any easier LOL, Thanks again for the nice comment, Cheers M

Probably
because that was my era ( the 70's) when I was at my prime and playing live. It must have stuck with me LOL, but I'm extremely pleased if it's still bringing pleasure. Thanks Ego B, regards M

It was really good last year,
Now it's even better Maurice. Love the slide guitar in it, but I don't seem to remember that from last year. Is that on of you additions for the Summer of Love Challenge?

What ever, it;s sound might good there my friend. Thanks for reposting it.

Be well and be cool,

It was there Ed
But as I said to Feter I brought it forward and I left a couple of other instruments out, so it's given a 'cleaner' sound. Glad you liked it. Thanks for calling in my friend, regards M

Lovely Summer Days
Maurice,

Your best vocal sound yet - love the harmonies, and the song is very uplifting.

From a production point of view, I think the dobro could come up a bit in the mix, and I'd like to hear less effects on the rhythm guitar. Maybe a little more volume in the drums and bass too while you're twiddling the dials.

Now although I've done it myself, I don't think the crowd noises add much to a tune, but hey, lots of people enjoy that so who am I to pontificate?!

Good post!
Neil

Thanks Neil...
The mic I used was my original Sennheizzer which I swapped originally because it tends to over pronounce the S's. I did raise the Dobro from the original, though it could go up a bit more as you say..... and the crowd was there to support me with it being an open air event LOL. Thanks for the visit and glad you liked it, M

Well, well into fall...
I just thought I'd take a trip back in time to summer. This doesn't bring back memories because I never had a summer like that but it is something to shoot for.
Great singing and a very evocative lyric and treatment. Cheers.

I enjoy movis
hearing your tunes on Friday, cause your music brings out the festive feeling of kickin back and I surely get a feeling WEEKEND :)

Thanks so much for doing this, how can you put a price on that, to get that precious sand between your toes, but it doesn't matter that the sand is not actually in my toes. I get the feel in the music with out the sand irritation :) Best of both worlds.

A joy movis,thanks much for sharing this precious style of music!
