BH Lyr Add: Swimming to the Other Side (Pat Humphries (63* d) RE: Swimming to the Other Side 26 May 02


For starters Pat wrote this song some 10 yrs ago. I am glad it is finally getting the recognition that it (and her owther work) deserves.

We (Ron Olesko and I) have been playing it for many years on our program (TRADITIONS). Pat has also been a guest on the program. I usually term her "..l.my favorite anthem writer".

In the NPR piece an "expert" spoke of why this was a memorable piece. It has the bass notes in the sequence of the Pachobel Canon---says the expert--and hence the reason it is memorable. I don't know of the accuiracy of this---I just know the words and the sound is great. Now, try to hear her "Respit For My Soul". Great piece!!

All of these are on the "Same Rain" CD. Came out about 10 yrs ago.

Her new CD has a wonderful Phil Ochs piece---previously unreleased---Hands on it. Check Appleseeds Recordings web site and find out about it.
