Distance : A Reading

I recently was lucky enough to hear a recording of a very talented poet’s work. You can find her blog here It inspired me to try recording one of my own pieces again, and so here it is. It’s of my recent new one, Distance, and I hope you like it.

To Rise : A Reading

Once again, my tatty little blog has been blessed by the dulcet tones of Fibee5 who has given me the pleasure of recording one of my recent poems – To Rise. I’m sure you’ll all agree she gives my words such a sheen of quality and meaning. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did. .

In Truth : A Reading

It’s been another little while since the wonderful Fibee5 has graced these pages with a reading, but here’s a new one from her, reading my poem “In Truth”. I hope you enjoy listening to her as much as I do. And don’t forget to pay a visit to her blog, you won’t be disappointed.

Birmingham Jail : A Recording

I’m updating this to include it in the Daily Prompt. It’s not about my love of an instrument per se, but it shows how I like to mix great words (poetry of sorts) with my favourite instrument. It’s a very old American folk song, covered by all sorts of people. This is my version. The recording quality isn’t all that, and as always my voice isn’t the best, but it’s a lovely, lovely song, if you can just focus on the lyrics. It’s called “Down In The Valley” or “Birmingham Jail”. Thank you.

I Also Play Guitar II

So I’ve decided to inflict reward you with another recording. Again, ignore the voice but listen to the lyrics. This is famous song, written by the wonderful Lennon & McCartney partnership. All music & lyrics copyright to them etc. It’s called “Norwegian Wood”.

I Also Play Guitar

OK, before anyone says it, I know I don’t have the voice of an angel. But I wanted to share something I get great pleasure from. Playing my guitar, and singing to myself. Hope you like it. This is a cover of David Gray’s “Sail Away”… all music & lyrics are his etc. If I get a positive response from this, I might post another… now there’s a threat.
