Emile Champion - The Christmas Shoes - Daniel/Carswell/Ahlstrom/Newsong - cover - 12/12/19 The Christmas Shoes.. a challenge, on a few levels... changed the opening key... my Bridge is different... took two full "takes"... I think this is the better of the two, but just slightly... I was rushing, because the 8:45 Sunday Choir was starting to come into the church, and I kept expecting the big organ to be turned on... would have liked one more shot, but the choir voices started warming up... and they practice close to my “recording studio”... and they definitely have first dibs... I think it's pretty good... but please let me know your thoughts... thanks for listening...

Error Alert... in the beginning of the introductory comments about this song, I incorrectly stated the title, but stated it correctly at the end of the comments... it was late tonight, after a long, busy day at work. But, I think the recording of this cover is good enough, to not scrap it. Hope you agree, and enjoy it.... thanks for listening.... Emile

Emile Champion - Dream A Little Dream of Me - Schwandt/Andre/Kahn/Mamas & Papas - cover - 10/20/19 This is a do-over, of the song I uploaded a few days ago... I didn’t change any chords, though I eliminated one chord going into the first Chorus... however, I went higher vocally at the beginning of each Chorus, which I think offered a big improvement in the clarity of the lyrics... hope you agree, and enjoy this rendition... thanks for listening.... comments are appreciated... have a Blessed Week, my friends...

I’ll probably re-record it tomorrow night, but would appreciate your honest comments on this rendition.... part of me thinks that, perhaps the imperfections sorta illustrate the message of the song... hope you enjoy it... thanks for listening...
