Description
This is an old recording of me in my late twenties in the early 70's singing and playing on one track on my Grundig TK20 reel to reel tape recorder for my own amusement. That makes them almost fifty years old.
I managed to salvage a few of these old recordings and though they are not exactly studio quality I was surprised at how clear they actually play after years of lying in a drawer. The song is fromThe King and I', by Rodgers and Hammerstein and was sung and played through my 12 volt amp and Copycat echo unit, as I read the chords from the sheet music . The guitar is a little low I know, but it's perhaps as well, since I hadn't been playing all that long.

Amazing!
Maurice, this is just wonderful. You sound absolutely great on this recording, your characteristic vibrato and clear voice so beautifully on display in its youth. It is also so pleasant to hear just a simple guitar as accompaniment. This is such a treasure and it is amazing that the tape has lasted all these years...and that you actually have something to play it on. Get it on a CD soon so that it will never be lost! What a wonderful gift to share with your many fans here. Thank you so much. (And the song is one of my favorites, too. Nice choice back in your youth...and now.)

Thanks Paul
I do wish I still had that voice, breath and vibrato, but age is not so kind LOL nevertheless it made it so much more exciting when i discovered these recordings, a couple of which I've already posted here at MJ. I did actually have to borrow a working Reel to Reel tape machine, so that i could play them and transfer them to digital., Regards M

I have dreamed
Nicely done, Maurice. Lovely control over the vocal - the high notes are sweet. Guitar does well, although worth doing another guitar (and maybe bass) track should you want to go there. However, a delightful piece just as is.

Great idea
With the technology today, you could simply drop your old recording into a new digital landscape and then orchestrate it a bit. That would be an interesting exercise if nothing else. Paul

Wow!
50 years old. Just shows you. You should try to isolate the vocal and re-do it with new guitar/bass etc. Can you do it? Is the reel to reel two tracks? I don't know about these things really, never having recorded anything to tape.

Whatever. You have an amazing voice sir.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Blast from the past
Amazing that you can play this now and get anything at all! It gives me hope that some of my reel to reel tapes of the old days might still be playable - just have to find a reel to reel deck and I'm away.
Your voice sounds fantastic here. My dad would have loved hearing this - I think I mentioned once before to you that he was a friend of Chick Henderson - say no more.
Very enjoyable.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks Neil
for the great compliments and you know, I had the same trouble getting a recorder to play the tapes on. As it happens I still have the Grundig tape recorder, but I think i it may be past repair....maybe not. I managed to borrow a recorder from the girl I used to sing with, who dusted it off from her attic. We didn't know if the rubber bands would be stretched, shrunk or dried out, but it worked perfectly, so I got all the songs I could onto the computer while I had it.
Thanks again for listening and really pleased you enjoyed, regards M

Talk about a sentimental journey! This is really something special, Maurice. I wouldn't tinker with a thing. It has a fantastic vintage overlay and your voice is so pure and effortless. The simple accompaniment is all that is required. Just tops. Thanks for sharing it. regards, Peter.

What pipes!
Maurice you never ever cease to amaze. The note you hit at 1:01 is sublime. What control and mastery of a voice. The rendition is a gem sir and you have made my evening. I remember the original from the soundtrack but this one is my favourite.

Be well, and thanks for the dload.
