Description
Here's a song from 1926--thanks for listening! PS: It was 75 degrees in Minneapolis, Minnesota today--that must mean it's about 345 degrees around the rest of the United States for it to be that warm here, let me tell you!

Michael

"'Deed I Do" was composed by Fred Rose with lyrics by Walter Hirsch (1926, PD)
Arrangement and musical accompaniment: Alan McPike
Vocal: Slash Marx

Nothing is ever really free :-)
Hi Michael. Do the free vocal exercises come with an abs exerciser? And steak knives? Wonderful arrangement by Alan on this and your vocals are stellar as always. Take care, Peter.

Peter!
No, but I can throw in 2 Magic Tanning Gloves (value: $39.99 each, and if that's not enough we'll give you the amazing Showtime Pro Electric Rotisserie Oven (value: $39.99), but only if you call now. That's MUrrayhill-8-9222. Operators are standing by! But all serious aside, I learned that warm-up from a vocal teacher named Phoebe B. Beebe--one of the best! Thanks again Peter--you have a very good week, Michael

I was told you should warm up your voice before singing every time, but to be honest, I rarely do it (besides, I remember spending almost half the time during my vocal lessons doing these exercises and at the rate she charged, every week I'd run through them, each week getting faster and faster, yanno?) Thanks again for listening--take good care now! Michael

Well, I know where you've been and I'm not telling! Thanks for listening to this (as usual, I'm just dumbstruck at the response this got--seriously! But for me, it's letting people hear the music and the song that matters the most, so that's good!) Still no usable PC yet (I recorded this a few weeks ago incidentally) and on the old one we had from before; there's just not enough memory on this ancient one to install my music programs, etc. We are shopping around for a used, but refurbished Dell setup like we had and hope to have that situation resolved before too long. You take care now and thanks again! Michael

I tried the vocal exercise but I still sing like Bob Dylan on a really bad day. Do you have anything that can make me sing like you? I'd be willing to pay up to $19.99 for it.
Swinging and great as usual.

...let's see...for $19.99, I can teach you the fine art of singing with your mouth closed (this doesn't sound like much, but it's one of the higher disciplines of vocalizing and well worth the cash layout, trust me Mark). As per usual, coming from a master musician like yourself, the kind words and encouragement go very far--thanks again! Michael

Alas, it's never been quite the same since my singing partner, Kitty Litter, ran off with a bass player from the Jimmie Lunceford orchestra (ironically, last I heard she and Joe--the guy she ran off with--are currently working at a Kotex Factory in Selma, Alabama). Thank you for remembering Sophie Tucker, the "Last of the Red Hot Mommas" (although by the time she was making film appearances, which is how I first became aware of her, she was more like "The First of the Last Glowing Embers", yanno?) If you ever watch the film "American Graffiti", please note the temps Wolfman Jack forecasts over the car radios! Always a delightfully delectable experience dealing with your drolly delirious and oftentimes, didactical diatribes. You take care now Reggie! Michael

Hey, appreciated hearing from you partner! As usual, it is simply amazing the variety of instruments Alan so artfully captures on these arrangements; just baffling almost! Thanks again and yes, that picture depicts a couple dancing "the Charleston" (unfortunately, I did not knit that tableau, but interestingly enough, I am currently reading an instructional book on knitting. I've always wanted to knit myself a sweater and a hat--I set some truly lofty goals for myself, yanno?) Take care now Maurice--and I loved your latest! Michael

I heard about that Bob! Didn't they send out airlifts to drop Coppertone bombs on Florida to keep it under control? Well,the "bar rag" thing may have been just a joke on my mother's part (she had a sick sense of humor to begin with, so this story may be apocryphal). On the other hand, my dad always insisted they shook me out of a box of (broken) animal crackers. I'll never know! Thanks for listening and for the kind words--take care now, Michael

First!
I come to this as it sits neatly atop the chart over there on the left.... And oh boy! so it should.
If you were squeezed from a rag, I must have been squeezed out of a sweaty mawashi. Look out for my new tune "mawashi needs a washi cuz you wore it without showering first".
I'm currently on routine #24... on hiatus. I'll be back.
Superiffic tune boss. Snazzy intro vibe. Creamy ultra precise razor sharp vocals on this one. Again.

Mr. 23
Well, you are just too kind! Really, I'm kind of stunned to have seen this at the top myself (although being stunned is a rather prominent disposition of my character and physioillogical makeup). That song sounds like a surefire box office smash hit--will be waiting up many, many nights waiting for it to appear, trust me Ted. I do have to correct you on one point: You are actually doing a Routine #45 (Routine #24 is something else entirely different, which I don't wish to repeat here--let them buy the manual to find out, yanno?) THANK YOU again my friend--hope you are doing well during your Routine #45! Michael

The Chipmunk part of your warm up was on the first record I ever
purchased with my own money, so you had me right there. Hearing this reminds me how many great genres of music I've yet to explore. If I were this song, written in 1926, I'd be delighted to be re presented by you.

Well we've been having wonderful cool nights in the 50's and days in the high 70's here in Austin but we will probably hit that 345 sometime in August.
Another great song from the past. Didn't Guns and Roses do a cover of this? Oh wait, that was Weed I Do. Seriously beautiful smooth singing as always. We both do a lot of songs from the Way Back Machine but you do the slick city songs and I do those rough country ones. I guess between us we've got early American music covered.
