Fue visitado por Antonio Salvador Bau Montoro, un conocido artista y amigo mio de Espana, y cantamos juntos la cancion “Amapola”.

I was visited at the office by a friend of mine from Spain, the well-known singer and Aloe vera farmer Antonio Salvador Bau Montoro, and we sang the song Amapola for your enjoyment together, the first of three Spanish duets we did off the cuff.

Unfortunately we hadn’t had time to practice, it was all off the cuff, and we weren’t anticipating the frequent key changes in the track. We also couldn’t hear it as well as the computer picked it up, so the last verse is truly discordant on this. That is probably why more folk have disliked this one than liked it. It was fun though.
