Among My Souvenirs

Among My Souvenirs—E. Leslie/L. Wright, 1927 (Recorded September 21, 2011) Here’s a song that seems to have existed forever, at least to me. I have an early memory of Burl Ives singing it. Good ol’ Burl. He might have been needlessly worried about Commies, but he sure could croon a choon. For this recording I brought out the Arthur Godfrey-Vega “Father’s Day gift to myself” baritone ukulele. I tried to whistle during the break but my lips are chapped, or something, so I scatted. The singing is a little strained, too. Ah, well. If I were perfect, I’d have more money than that dog abuser, Willard Mitt Romney.
