Wow. I wasn’t even sure I was gonna upload it. You know as a performer, artist (feh…whatEVER the word is..) you only see the mistakes. I’m really glad that you liked it.

honestly, i’d love it if you felt inclined to take on any other public domain traditional stuff and posted it. you’ve got an amazing gift in your voice, and these types of songs are timeless classics that really show off their emotional bang when sung by you.

only very minor glitch…when you hit the “i once was lost…” you redline for a split second. but that’s a minor thing compared to the performance and effort.

Well, I had planned to because of Fourstone’s heartfelt request. I just didn’t think folks would respond so positively to it. I remember J Lang posted a gospel song of some group he was working with. Then, a indiviadual took Lang’s upload and created a song that was so rude and disrespectful of the songwriter’s original intention that he unpublished it. I was so angry (& I’m not a religious person) because of the total disrespect for Lang’s and the group’s gift to CCMixter.

I gotta admit; I’m somewhat caught off guard by the strong positive reactions to these performances. Thanks again.

On another note, I’ve got to be more mindful of ‘redlining’. I’ve got such a big mouth that I forget myself!!! But I will be more conscious in future performances and uploads! Thanks for the heads up!

Awesome of my favorites. Huge regret right at this moment is that it is 11:44 PM in my house and everyone is asleep so I can’t sing along with you and do my own improv on this one that I occasionally do with the ears of the public safely guarded :-).

Yes, please mind those peaks, which are the recording device’s limits, not your own :-). I wouldn’t want to see you cut back your emotion one iota, just turn down the machine. I might have to remix this one. It hits home for me in many ways.

Bless you Songboy :-).

I love your performance of that song. I used part of it in a very processed way on my track
Thanks for inspiring me.
