Hi George, I liked the registration changes, and an "ethereal" sound which i thought very effective. Shades of the old radio programs of yesteryear and Paul Robeson who seemed to sing little else if you remember him Ken (H)

Hi George,

That was a real good performance of that number, showed the new Genos off very well, voices were rich and full
and the new revo drums sounded good also, an all round good piece well played and voiced.

George,

Great sound you have got here. Change of rhythm, and that super-deep voicing ...

Ken mentioned Paul Robeson. I remember hearing him as a lad and thinking what a wonderful deep voice he had.

Ol' Man River was from Showboat.
Original version: Show Boat (1927) Music: Jerome Kern Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II
The clip below is from 1936.
