Recording information by Gary_AGOLD

I took this photo at Biggs Park, in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, BC

I took this photo overlooking Bamberton on Saanich Inlet, from the top of the Malahat, north of Victoria, BC.

This song was written by Betty Wells and performed by Hank Thompson, an American country music entertainer whose career spanned seven decades. Thompson's musical style, characterized as honky tonk Western swing, was a mixture of fiddles, electric guitar and steel guitar that featured his distinctive, smooth baritone vocals. The primary difference between his music and that of Bob Wills was that Thompson, who used the swing beat and instrumentation to enhance his vocals, discouraged the intense instrumental soloing from his musicians that Wills encouraged; however, the "Hank Thompson sound" exceeded Bob Wills in Top 40 country hits.

To make this one different, I added 3 guitar tracks and a voice track to it..

Thanks for stopping by... Comments are most welcome....
Have a good evening everyone..
