Description
Here's another song just in time for Autumn, from my reel to reel vaults. I recorded it in the late 60's singing with guitar when I was in my early thirties, and a couple of years ago I added a piano and some strings in GB to sort of 'pack it out' since it's a 'concerto' (LOL). Hope you like it as I've always loved this song since it was first published. I love those Italian melodies and It was written by C. Bargoni, with English lyrics by Paul Siegel, John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.

Autumn Concerto
Good to hear something from the vault. Reel-to-reel was so wonderful - the ability to record and mix multiple tracks! If only we had known then what was ahead of us! Nice warm melody that you perform with emotion, Maurice. Much enjoyed!

Thanks Philip
The recording does have a 'warm' feel to it your right. I only just moved my Grundig tape-recorder yesterday from one room to another (just wish i could get it repaired). This was originally recorded in one take, vocal and guitar, because my TK20 model only recorded one track as opposed to the larger model which recorded two. Anyway Philip, I'm really pleased you enjoyed listening to this, regards M

Autumn Concerto
A song style that always makes me think of the Mario Lanza record that my dad used to play and sing to in the 60's. Wonderful, fluid, rich rendition, Maurice. The reel-to-reel was such an organic recording medium. Thanks, Peter.

I Really
appreciate those superlatives Peter..... I really miss those wonderful melodies. I remember a guy I sang with at one time, buying a Yamaha digital amplifier and the first thing I noticed was the thin-ness of the sound in comparison to my Sound-City valve amp; to my ears, all the warmth had gone, Thank you for those very kind words. cheers M

Autumn
Lovely ambience in your voice. I get nostalgic for an era that I never even experienced.

Btw, who is the composer/lyricist? I'm completely not finding this with google.

Thanks Vic
Apart from the sound quality from the reel to reel tapes i also think the Sure (28?) mic' I had at the time helped. The composers names are in my notes at the top and they are written by C. Bargoni, with English lyrics by Paul Siegel, John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons. I also tried to find the song through Google and could only get some Chinese film named 'Autumn Concerto'. Thanks again, regards M.

from the vaults
for old reel to reel this sounds great. the later additions perfectly fill it out.

Yes Vic
I was lucky to have retrieved the few songs I have from that era and with that quality sound. Glad you like the 'filling out' though I did think it sounds a little thin on the strings at times, it was tricky getting a balance, cheers M

Reprise
M, I remember that you posted this a couple (or three) years ago. Very nice to hear it again. Your voice as a young man is just terrific and the recording holds up beautifully. I loved hearing this again and am glad you put it back up. Such a long and beautiful life as a musician. Our blessing that you fell in love with these romantic songs so long ago.

Hi Paul,
I didn't actually post it at the time, though i sent it to you to hear, that's why it's familiar to you, but thank you for listening once more, so pleased with your comment. Yes I always loved the romantic ballads.....always loved Vic Damone, Al martini and other balladeers who gave us these lovely songs, regards M
