A spontaneous song, pics 

 

Just recently I finished recording a song which has been around for most of my life. I'ts a cover version of the Doris Troy hit "Just One Look" made famous in the UK & Europe during the early 60's by the "Hollies".

Over the years I 've been lucky enough to have & make good friends in the music business one of whom is Alan Silson who worked on this version of "Just One Look" with me.

Just recently Norman Osthus of "NormCast" (podcast prizewinner  2011) stopped by to record an interview about the making of "Just One Look",  Alan was here at the studio too, so one thing led to another which resulted in quite a lengthy interview & photo session with us both. 

Just for a bit of fun, Alan & me grabbed two guitars and  decided to play an acoustic version of  Chinn & Chapman's song"If you think you know how to love me" which had been the first hit for Alan's old band "Smokie" in the 70's.

We went outside on the balcony (despite the dull cold weather) and played this famous old hit for Norman . 

Below you'll find the link to the clip & a couple of photos  from the interview.  (Click for larger version).
