Selfies

As a child in the early 60s, I became a music fan, mostly thanks to The Beatles. It seemed that any music that existed before The Beatles was irrelevant. Fortunately, I grew up and became more open minded.

I came to realize that “old fogey” music was actually quite good. In fact, some of the greatest songs ever written were around long before I was born. I am especially fond of music from the early to mid twentieth century. I’ve recorded a handful of these songs, presented here in a simple form… just my guitar and voice.

This playlist is just the beginning. I will add more songs to it from time to time. Please sign up for my newsletter for the occasional updates.

Enjoy!
