I'll take that one.  Good job, and live.  When does the tour start?

You really caught the Beatles feel with this number.  I'm not too familiar with his music, but I know he is very popular in the UK.  I have a friend over there who raves about him.  I should listen to one of his albums sometimes.

Great vocals.  I love the tone of the piano.  I've been meaning to ask you about the old organ you are playing on some of the songs.  Tell us about that.  I used to know a family that had one from the thirties.  Neil Young plays one - guess you've seen that, everybody's a fan of his... 

You should stick this over in Bubbly's Middle 8 thread - then you would be on the main board.  Might help to get folks to come over here more often.  And your comment on the like button is noted.  I've seen several people mention it.  I think it works very well out on the net-world.  It's positive, and makes everybody feel good from both sides.

Thanks as always, Will.

Yeah, neither am I to be honest. Just know of this one and "Clair", which I first heard done by the Singers Unlimited: https://youtu.be/mIHGb8Qm0IY
The original is really pretty too, though.

I love the tone of the piano. 
Agreed! Made the switch from REAPER to Logic late last year, almost entirely for the built-in software instruments.

Yeah, sure. It came from my grandma, she used to play it in church 30 or 40 years ago, then when the church closed down she brought it home with her. Almost two years ago my family moved into my grandparent's old house, and the organ came with. I'm not really sure of its history or anything, but I'd imagine it must be close to a century old at this point. Some of the stops don't work anymore and some of the notes are really out of tune, but overall it's a really neat instrument, glad to have it.

I raved this artist before who I found last year. "Clair" might be the sweetest song since dinosaur age. Back to vid, what you did with the song was good. I hear slight changes in the vocal dept, they sound rather jazzy. Actually, the piano chords are kind of different too. The orig. is less dissonant and you know beforehand what'll be next. Thus, well done.

Zach,  This continues to be one of my very favorite covers that you have done.  So this is where I'll say, the cake is on fire!

Happy Birthday!  ...the crowd throws streamers.  Have a Fun day.

Have you got something new?  Any new requests?  You probably hate requests.  I thought of one tho, while listening to The 5th Dimension's first album, Up, Up, and Away.  They do a version of the classic Johnny River's track "Poor Side of Town."  Do you like that song?  Think about it.  You would have to decide if it fits your style, but you seem to do a lot of different types of songs.  It's  a favorite song of mine.  Reminds me of the Four Seasons when I hear Rivers do it, but the Dimension make just about everything on their first album sound like the Mamas and the Papas.  Give the song a listen and get back to me.

Stay busy, Zach.  It helps the rest of us. -Will

Just saw and heard this - Top-notch work as usual!

Now for a bookend to this one, how about tackling Alone Again Or by Love? I heard Calexico do that live on stage when they played before Brian's live set in Philly at 'XPN last May, it's a great, great song that I think you'd knock out of the park.

Thanks, Craig! I'll add that to the queue.

It's included in the best 200 60s songs by Pitchfork; good taste. I like its rhythm the best. Invite 2 friends who sang "Darlin'" with you. Could be interesting stack of vocals. But gather you work solo.

I've tried to organize a few video recording sessions with friends over the last year, it's just always so difficult to find a day/time where all of us are free.

Goodness knows how I missed this first time round. Most appropriately I gave it a listen at the tail end of Christmas Day when all other folks were in bed. Zach (or zatch) does it again!

He seems to have moved on----luckily his videos are still around, although he's been quiet of late on YT as well, hopefully for no bad reason.

Anyway----thank you for the fine music, sir, and go well. :=)
