I Hope You Cry

from the CD "Final Frontiers

Many, many years ago I wrote the music to I HOPE YOU CRY . The original feel was Texas Blues meets ARGENT whilst I did some finger picking. The break was strictly psychedelic.

Years passed and the song was never a fixed piece ...more an ever changing base for improvisation in a blues medium. I actually tracked this for a local label but they went belly up after the radio promo but before the release so it stayed in limbo.

Beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing through the decade married and unmarried couples which were parts of our bands life began desolving like Mentos in Coke. This was worldwide.

This is the typical situation which has driven the " MY BABY LEFT ME" as well as the "GET YOUR ASS OUT" schools of musical thought. It was an unwritten mandate to do my part.

Ergo I wrote the lyrics and really fleshed out the music.

At our next rehearsal (in Jerry's trailer) I presented the piece. Jerry caught the feel immediately and gave the composition drive and momentum. Mike is great at this type of piece, caught the Beatlesque feel of the break/transition and fleshed out the instrumentation to achieve a more evident ebb and flow.

When Samson arrived we taught him the piece, he caught it immediately and added to the pulse of the song with a luxurious guitar line that accentuated Mikes lush lines.

This is one of those songs which ended up exactly where I envisioned it .

It was a solid crowd pleaser.
