EarReverence at the City of Lights

Here’s a video of my a cappella vocal quartet recording our new CD at the City of Lights studio in Lakeport. The sound is unmixed and was recorded by the microphone on my camera.

I’m the one next to Bill Bordisso (the lead singer for this song). The song is “Come Go With Me.”  Here’s some trivia about the tune from Wikipedia:

Come Go with Me” is a song written by C. E. Quick. The song was originally recorded by the Del-Vikings in 1956. It became a big-seller on Dot Records in early-1957, reaching number four on the Billboard charts in the United States. The Del-Vikings’ recording was featured in the films “American Graffiti” and “Stand by Me“. The song was later covered by the American pop band The Beach Boys and was released on their 1978 album MIU Album. In January, 1982, the single became a top twenty hit, reaching number eighteen in the United States. In 2004 Rolling Stone ranked the doo wop-styled song #441 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The Angel in Me

Paul Hoyt is an amazing man. He’s got both sides of his brain working, which makes him not only extremely intelligent, but also creative, spiritual and musical. You can find him on the web at http://hoytgroup.com, though I met up with him again after a long period apart at Border’s in Palo Alto, where he is now resident.

After our visit, he emailed me the “One and only song I have ever written”.

I share it here now with you. Paul is the composer and the singer – I’m not sure who the pianist is. It’s a marvelously simple tune with a profound message beautifully performed by Paul and his exquisite tenor voice.
