LULLABYS FOR GG
CREDITS: Recorded and performed with deep affection by Reid Jamieson. Produced by Carolyn Victoria Mill. Dedicated to Gayle (Ladybabe/GG) McKool.
Brahms Lullaby adapted by Gayle McKool
Catch A Falling Star
written by Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss
Hush Little Baby
New Day Comin’ Round (Pappy’s Lullaby)
written by Gilbert Harvey Jamieson in 1976. Reido’s dad used to sing this to him, and we had no idea that he wrote it. Amazingly Pappy remembered all the words and the melody!
Little Pink Pony
Based on a traditional of various names, adapted by Brenda Bridge Jamieson. Reid’s mom used to sing this wee refrain to him and is one of the few things he has left of her besides his good looks.
written by Henry Mancini
I Guess I’ve Come To Live Here In Your Eyes
written by Willie Nelson from the 1980 Honeysuckle Rose soundtrack, and later on Spirit. A huge influence on Reido, Willie was always there for him when he was missing his mom.
My Curly Headed Baby
Written by George H. Clutsam in 1897, it was made precious to Merrill Bevan by Paul Robeson, and we recorded a different version for his bday.
written by Cliff Eberhardt (1990 The Long Road), but brought to our attention by the magnificent Buffy Sainte-Marie (Coincidence and Likely Stories 1992). She says it is her favourite song and we can see why.
written by Reid Jamieson. Originally recorded as the instrumental ‘Lullaby for the Lost’ on our record Me Daza, we intend to write new lyrcis for the official release, to express just how precious those children who do not share our blood can be. This version is new, but still awaits words. wish us luck.
