Rex Origins: Spanish Is the Loving Tongue (95* d) RE: Origins: Spanish Is the Loving Tongue 29 Dec 11


I recorded this on my latest CD and could have offered it as most know it. I must admit, I like the more complex and pretty melody. Yet I wanted to offer it as Billy Simon might have done for his sake. I kicked it up a step from how he sings it in Katie's film, The Last Wagon. Thinking as he was in his 80s, he would have sung it higher in his youth. I also stepped up the tempo a bit. It is my best guess as to how he intended it. Now and then I get a pang wishing I had recorded a pretty version of it but not for long. Better to play it as Billy did.
