Five amazing things about really awful records:
1. the writers thought they'd really come up with something great;
2. the people who played and sang on them were happy with their performances;
3.they listened to the studio playback and approved what they heard;
4. they agreed the recordings were of quality to press and distribute; and,
5. they honestly believed their records had hit potential.
Bob Gerard's "Snow Man" Leaves me pondering these five and about thirty other head-scratchers, not the least of which is "who gave that guy a bass?"
We struck gold on this fifth day. There is a bonus track, obviously a home recording, of a tempo - and pitch - challenged "ain't my kid cute" masterpiece. O Little Town of Beth-lee-ham.
BTW, the "five gold rings" refers not to five pieces of jewelry, but to five ring-necked birds such as pheasants. Stay with the bird motif, folks.
There are seven days of this madness left.
