Lately I acquired a reel to reel tape recorder from a friend so that I could search my old analog reel to reel tapes for songs I'd recorded in my youth. Most have just that bit too much echo as most songs did at the time between the 1950's to late 60's, which is when my songs were recorded onto a Grundig TK20 Tape Recorder. This is the first song that I wrote in the early 60's(I was about 19 at the time)before I ever had an amp or a mic', and I'd completely forgotten about the song, until I heard it as I ran the tapes.It was the only thing I ever did that my father ever liked and was recorded directly into the tape recorder mic', using a cheap acoustic guitar which I had only just learned to play in C,G,F and G7. I was surprised at the clarity after all this time, as other recordings had deteriorated quite a bit.I've had to take the songs I've managed to retrieve into Audacity to clean them up and get rid of most 'hum'. It's one of the first things I ever played and recorded; I never wrote another song until I joined MJ, so please give this performance a little lee-way if you listen to it.
