Sunday Morning Coming Down

2011 saw David Dondero release A Pre-Existing Condition, thirteen songs, nine of which were cover versions: amongst others there’s Lowell George’s Willin’, Elizabeth Cotton’s Freight Train, Neil Young’s Don’t Cry No Tears, and two by Charley Pride – Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’ and today’s selection.

Without question my favourite Pride song, Dondero does just enough to make it different from the original without ruining it:

David Dondero – (Is Anybody Going To) San Antone

Oh, go on then, compare and contrast if you like:

Charley Pride – Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone

They don’t name albums like that anymore.

More soon.

Late Night Stargazing

Sometimes, late at night, all you really want is an old crooner in a cardigan and suspiciously garey shirt, leaning back the wrong way on a chair, like if Christine Keeler was your grandad:

Perry Como – Catch A Falling Star

I feel a Crooner’s Corner coming on for this series….

More soon.
