When my Little Girl is Smiling

Postby Brian007 » 12 Jul 2018 13:58

Hi ALL,

Here is my cover of a number recorded by the Drifters in 1961 and has been covered many times since then, I recently came across a version sung by Paul Carrack who used to be in the original line up of Mike and the Mechanics and his version inspired me to record my version, Played on the Korg Pa700 with guitar instrumental from the Yamaha MX synth

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.

Brian,

That is very, very good. Love the two voices you have 'blended together'. Dare I say it? I think this is the best piece you have recorded on your Korg.
