i have recently acquired what i think
is a complete list of heartsong's ever changing personnel. i will
do my best to identify individuals with their photos now.
more photos of heartsong, before, and later.... in no particular order
one thing we found out, after we
went 'pro', was that the number of male tenor vocalists who
aren't insane is-- well, zero. so we setlled for insane ones, when
we could find one at all. here's a picture of HEARTSONG with
tenor # 2 [ or was it 3, it's a blur ]
personnel : me, carol raynsford, alto, walt sayre,
tenor in the middle, then terry landis, soprano, and david
lord, baritone and rhythm guitar. walt was good, but
addicted to the trombone. he didn't stay.
and before walt and david there was dean. [ dean stevens ] he was 7 feet tall and
goofy as...well, goofy. nice tenor voice, not always quite in
tune, and he didn't like to
learn parts. big drawback..... had to let him go.
Carol, our alto, was a country girl, lived way out in the woods. here she is in front of the woodshed.
before Heartsong, there was the 'doowop' group, which include some
member of the 'original' Heartsong. i can't remember all their
names. confused? don't worry. just look at the
picturess. i'll sort them out later.
a friendly bunch. i did a nice arrangement of 'Rockin' Robin' for them.
here's Heartsong with one of our female 'tenors' . name gone. [
susan michael ] she tried, but it's just not the same.
here's a very nice pic of H'song with dean. don't we look great? 'cept for dean.
and here's that nice girl who sang tenor. [ susan michael ]
