Description
I heard heard Paula Kelly sing this song last week, she blew me away with this tune I love the production of it, Glenn Miller and of course so much more. Just plain blown away by this video:

I hope you get a chance to hear this wonderful orchestra and Paula singing this. Of course my version is much more folk. But I guess with my dad being in a big band orchestra (Paul Law Orchestra) (sax) and playing Glenn Miller tunes when I was young, I grew a love for this type of music.

Dang...
Bill, your tunes are so sweet, and this one is no exception. Your vocal has now come to rivel your guitar. Oh my! Now you are, indeed, something to contend with. Love this song...

Folk Singing
Very nice. I checked out the jazz original, that is good too, but very different. I really like what you have done with this. It has a freshness and you voice is so clear it just plays so smoothly as a folk song. Thanks.

Another fine re-interpretation, Bill. Easy listening vocals and your quality picking. Some quality fills, too. A winning combination. The ending was a surprise :-) Thanks, Peter.

What a nice change of pace. Playing a folk style accompaniment to a Glenn Miller tune is unusual - and I like it! My dad also played in big bands to put himself through school and I grew up listening to Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald. You got me thinking......

Yeah
Bill another good one in your quite large catalog of songs. The echo on the guitars and your voice is just right and you do a nice job of singing.

I know why
I do love your guitar playing. t rolls along so well, but clean with it. Good to hear more than one guitar - love those fills! Warm vocal. Neat changes in the song. Plenty of joy in the performance. A bit of a "Music in the Night" ending. Good one, Bill.

Love it when you sing!!
Man, it's like listening to Leo Koettke way back in the day before he got famous and stopped singing. My mom was a huge Glenn Miller fan (dad was racier and like The Thundering Herd more, ha!) This takes me back and forward at the same time. A joy.
