Back in the early 1970s, we had a music room in the basement. My dad played the vibes (see photo), mom played the Lowrey organ, and we hosted musical accompanists from among my dad’s students in the military at Ft. Monmouth. We made lots of recordings, most of them were songs owned by others, so we’re not posting them online. But my dad did write two songs. This is a recording of one of those compositions, “Hey Kid,” with my dad on vibes and a young bass player named Dave Wilson.

Technical information: The original recording was made on a Roberts 771X reel-to-reel deck with Shure microphones. The tape was Scotch 203 Dynarange.

Let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy hearing it!
