“If I say” by Jo McCafferty – video remix


Original YT playout date: 13 August 2008
Duration: 4:27

I was given permish by my talk radio friend and not exactly unsigned artist (she has her own label, but if Universal, Sony et al are interested, who knows?) Jo McCafferty who wrote and also performs this lovely song, among numerous others which you can find on her channel http://www.youtube.com/neosome and you can also see her talent on the Sunday night NTTBS shows on my channel.

I remixed the video a little bit, so you can go and see the original prior to the remix over on her channel! I’ll link to it off the video. There are also ways that you can buy the mp3s from her website.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E1 – Journey Over to Herts


Original YT playout date: 12 July 2008
Duration: 25:34

Ironically this is being uploaded on a day (6th May 2019) when I am making a similar journey from the UK to Poland in the reverse direction. Already for several years Stryków is less significant, as the motorways go right through now. Still, nice trip down memory’s country rther too narrow lanes.

It’s a second series of Uncle Davey’s Herts Content. This time we go there by car, unlike last time in the plane. Here we see Strykow in the days when the motorway didn’t go all the way to Warsaw.

“O Balalayka” with Van Gogh


Original YT playout date: 15 June 2008
Duration: 8:03

OK, this video is weird. On the one hand I have subscribers asking the perfectly reasonable question of how can they hear the full version of the song at the beginning of the Russian lessons (reminder to those who haven’t been hanging on every word in the comments to those – I don’t even know the artist here. You are welcome to add to comments if you know, and I’ll annotate and edit). On the other hand, I have a perfectly good bit of by-product video I made for the picture-in-picture effect on “”Huliganov’s Starry Night”” showcasing a bunch of lovely paintings from the Van Gogh museum which you don’t really see in all their fullness, only hints of them, in the above video.

On the third hand, for those of you with three hands, the Van Gogh was quite a bit longer than the Balalayka song, so I added Dmitry Hvorostovsky singing “”Nochenka”” which keeps a bit more to the starry night theme and maybe the mood of the paintings more than Balalayka.

The outcome is slightly weird and surrealist, but enjoy anyway!

Huliganov’s “Almost There”


Original YT playout date: 31 May 2008
Duration: 4:16

A rendition of the Andy Williams number “Almost There”. One of my perennial favorites.

My parents had an Andy Williams album and I used to listen to it as a boy and sing along to the songs quite a bit. So I tend to know some of this guy’s repetoire fairly well. Indeed I would describe myself as an Andy Williams fan and would be happy to visit his birthplace
one day. If there is one artist that deserves the london Philharmonic makeover more than any other (sorry Buddy, sorry Carpenters, I love you too) then this is the one it has to be, and it hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know if it’s in te pipeline, but if someone is in the know then maybe they can get this project going.

I remember once singing this number, or possibly “more” Read the rest of this entry

All the Psalms


For a change this is a Video not from my channel. et me know if it comes down or is unavailable or anything, but this video is truly remarkable.  Eleven hours long, it contains fine choirs, especially Kings College Cambridge judging by the static images accompanying, singing their way through the entire Anglican Psalter.

Beautiful. God be praised.

And here, if the above were not enough, is a wonderful presentation, voice only of 120 top Christian Hymns.

A little bit of experimentation on this as I often did, with regards to effects.
