New Cover of "The Balance of Nature"

Postby BB4LIFE » Sun Apr 08, 2018 1:25 pm

Hey Everyone,

Here I am performing one of my favorite songs by Burt and Hal with Jennie Cruse. I'd previously recorded a version on my own and put it on YouTube. She then took my version and added her voice to it. I like the result...even with the not so great audio : )

Thank you to those who take the time to have a listen/watch. I appreciate it and hope you like it.

Take Care,

Layne

Layne:

Your admiration for Burt shines through on this heart felt interpretation of this timeless song. Looking forward to you sharing some more of your own compositions in the near future!

Jennie - Thank you. I love the way you sing this song as well :)

Martin - Thank you very much. I appreciate the compliment and glad you enjoyed the two of us. Thanks again.

Ron - Thank you man...this song has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. And let me just say that it's looking to be a busy summer for me with a lot of time hopefully being spent in the studio :wink:. I've got a lot of unheard material that's waiting to be finished. Stay tuned and as always...thanks for the support.

Very nice thanks for posting.

That bridge I guess you would call it on Balance of Nature - ain't it pretty? .. It has that unexpected change in it that is kind of the hallmark of the best of Burt .. beautiful and kind of knocks you over too with its originality.

That Dionne / Warners record so very great. "I Just Have to Breathe" so fine too. One of those records that if you haven't listened to in a long time, and you are up for a long drive on the road, you pop into the player and it just makes all the scenery finer, even if you are driving in the Panhandle in West Texas.

Lawsuits! ... What fine music this trio could have made in the years to come. But thanks to all - everyone must find their way without the people they love at some point.

Hey igtmfo33,

Thank you for the kind words. Sorry its taken such a long time for me to get back to you. For some reason I didn't get the notification in my e-mail that someone else had responded to this topic. And it's just been a long, long, long time since I've checked in.

But thanks again for taking the time to comment. And, yes, who knows what else they could've done together...that's life though. We can only be grateful for what they did do together : )

Peace,

Layne
