New Video

Written in 1977 for the daughter of his friend Duncan McGuire (bass player of

a band that Tommy worked with), this song was recorded on Tommy’s album

with the great (and original) CGP:  Chet Atkins


(Tommy isn’t wearing any headphones due to the cleverness of sound engineer, Brad Benge:  speakers playing the main recording were set equidistant from the microphone, making the playback soundless to the microphone yet audible to Tommy)

recorded with Chet Atkins on
