Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Remember this 1956 Golden Oldie?
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSMP_VvzxJo - Since I Met You Baby - Ivory Joe Hunter
|"Since I Met You Baby" is an American
rhythm and blues
song written and recorded by pianist
Ivory Joe Hunter.
The song, which Hunter recorded in 1956, became an American
standard, and saw renewed popularity in 1969 when
artist Sonny James
released his hit version.
Hunter had already tasted major success with popular and rhythm and blues audiences with songs such as "I Almost Lost My Mind". He moved to Atlantic Records by 1954, and around that time wrote "Since I Met You Baby."
The song, a 12-bar blues, was described by Allmusic critic Steve Huey as "a masterpiece of smooth, bluesy elegance" and "decidedly removed from the tide of raucous rock & roll sweeping the country." In fact, compared to many of the other uptempo, rock-beat songs of the period, the song was "augmented by a wordless vocal choir (supervised by Ray Ellis who also did the orchestral arrangement) that's strongly reminiscent of traditional pop recordings of the period," wrote Huey. Saxophonist Jesse Powell provided the harmony on the second verse.

|“All of us experience various kinds of opposition that test us. Some of these tests are temptations to sin. Some are mortal challenges apart from personal sin. Some are very great. Some are minor. Some are continuous, and some are mere episodes. None of us is exempt. Opposition permits us to grow toward what our Heavenly Father would have us become.”|

|Before I moved to this
farm I had the idyllic notion of cows gamboling in the pasture and farm
hands dancing in the barn at sunset. Both were wrong. But you can enjoy
my piece for piano and cello, anyway, "Barn Dance, Late at Night, When
All the Work is Done".
WOWZERONI! Thank you so much, Charis!
