Description
I posted this for two reasons; firstly because it's exactly fifty years since I was 29 that I sat on a friends settee above his radio repair shop with my guitar and sang this in one take.
The second reason was to explain how the echo was produced. As I sat, he stood a mic about two and a half feet in front of me; another to my right and slightly in front about four feet away; another mic behind me about five feet and one near the recorder at the back and to the left of me about six and a half feet away and not an echo machine in site. It always amazed me what a nice echo sound was produced just by the placement of the mic's. Though I don't know who wrote the song, it was recorded by quite a few famous names of the time and I believe Tom Jones wrote the lyrics......Hope you like it, M

TRY TO REMEMBER
Nice to hear your take on this classic from 50 years back Maurice. It’s from THE FANTASTICS, an off Broadway show that ran forever in New York City.
It’s great that you still have your recording and were able to share it with us in 2015.
I enjoyed it.
Cheers,
Charlie

Thank you
for listening Charlie; i never knew it was from a 'Musical' or that it ran for so long. My main recollection was of hearing Andy Williams who was one of my idols singing it, cheers M

Really wonderful, soothing rendition of a fine song, Maurice. 50 years? It seems like yesterday :-) You are right about the reverb. Lovely. Thanks, Peter.

I absolutely love this! The echo created so naturally sounds so good ... I'm going to try that. Your voice sounds fabulous. Great gem here Maurice.
Nice to see you back around here.
Cheers

Yes Stan,
that echo does come across well doesn't it; who would have thought that just in one room with such short distances, it takes sound so much time to travel. I'd love to hear what you do with that method of dotting mic's around, cheers M

I love this song...
First heard it around 1965. Maurice, you create a mellow mood with your soft touch and heartfelt singing... Good one.
Moviz said 884 days ago (May 24th, 2015)
Hi Jack,
Yes it was around that time I first heard it and I always liked it's soothing melody....really pleased you enjoyed my (I must say, 'shortened') version, all the best M

How beautiful...
A true balladeer you are Maurice, this was so touching and full of such feeling. You've given this song so much of yourself. Thank you for bringing this to me this evening; it gave me time for much reflection. Also, I wish you the very best for the coming year head. You are my champ! Michael

A joy!
I loved it Maurice.

Fifty years? Time passes so quickly.

A lovely recording and an interesting process getting the echo.

Cheers

Thanks Dick
for calling in. Yes regarding the echo; I was thinking about it today and realised that really, the spaced out mic's are the same process as on the 'Copycat' echo unit I once had, with it's five recording heads/ The tape carries the recording to each head and plays it. Then as it travels its circular loop it is automatically deleting the first sound as it records the next and playing it. Cheers M

You're in good voice here....
So nice to hear your interpretation of this great song, Maurice. Your explanation of the echo effects is pretty cool, too. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment to pull off such a heart-felt and warm recording.

Sorry I'm so late with my reply to your always appreciated comments. That voice at the time was with me all the time, but I never realised at the time; just didn't hear it.........I wish it sounded like that now, regards M
