Selection#2: And I Love You So (Composed and originally performed in 1970 by Don Mclean, who also wrote the Classic Pop/Rock anthem, "American Pie;" Perry Como's cover of "And I Love You So" rose to #29 in the US in 1973. Recorded August 5, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 3:06

Selection #3: Please Please Me (Written by Beatle, John Lennon; first #1 song for The Beatles in the UK, 1963; peaked at #3 in the US in early 1964. Recorded January 9, 2004; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:00

Selection #4: The Lonely Bull (One of the most famous instrumentals of the Pop-Rock Era. The first commercial, chart success for Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass, reaching #6 on the US Pop charts in the late Fall of 1962--composed by Sol Lake. Recorded January 30, 2005; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:04

Selection #5: Pomp And Circumstance (A famous tune known as The Graduation March in the US; composed by Edward Elgar in 1901; used at virtually every High School graduation ceremony every year throughout the United States. Recorded February 22, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:26

Selection #7: If I Fell (Composed by Beatle, John Lennon; one of his most beautiful and enduring tunes; appears on the third album The Beatles released in the US, "Something New," 1964. Recorded in April 29, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 1:58

Recorded August 10, 2000; 1976 Martin D-35) 1:30

Selection #9: Telstar (One of the great instrumentals of the Rock-Pop Era. #1 in the US for the Tornadoes, 1962; written by UK independent record producer, Joe Meek. The first television pictures broadcast across the Atlantic on July 11, 1962, had inspired Joe Meek to create the instrumental as a tribute to the Telstar satellite. Recorded December 3, 2003); 1976 Martin D-35 2:40

Selection #10: (Daisy Bell) Bicycle Built For Two (The famous Tin Pan Alley song penned by Harry Dacre in the 1890s. Film buffs might recollect that Hal the computer, in Stanley Kubrick's classic film "2001: A Space Odyssey," actually begins to sing "Bicycle Built For Two" while being shut down by one of the astronauts. This was somewhat of an inside joke, as a matter of fact; seems that the very first computer programmed to imitate human speech sang "Bicycle Built For Two" during its initial test run. Recorded November 7, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:27

Selection #11: (I'll Never Find) Another You (The classic composition by Tom Springfield, a song that the Australian folk group The Seekers took to #4 on the US Billboard charts during the Spring of 1965.

Recorded in May 29, 2002; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:13

Selection #13: Follow Me (A truly beautiful song written by John Denver for his 1970 album, "Take Me To Tomorrow," the LP that immediately preceded his break-out album in 1971, "Poems, Prayers And Promises," which of course contained the song that made Denver world-famous--"Take Me Home, Country Roads." #56 US Billboard for Mary Travers, 1971. Recorded November 10, 2004); 1976 Martin D-35 2:22

Selection #14: Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season) (The famous folk-rock song written by folk singer Peter Seeger; lyrics adapted from The Bible's Book Of Ecclesiastes--music by Peter Seeger. The Byrds soared to #1 in the US with "Turn! Turn! Turn!" in 1965. Recorded November 21, 2004; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:22

Selection #15: The Little Drummer Boy (The memorable traditional Christmas song written in 1958 by Katherine K. Davis; the version of "Little Drummer Boy" by the Harry Simeone Chorale made the US top 30 in December of each year, seasonally around Christmas time, from 1958 through 1962--highest chart position was #13 in 1958. Recorded December 12, 2002; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:55

Selection #16: Cowgirl In The Sand (A Classic Rock anthem written by Neil Young. First appears on his 1969 LP, "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere," recorded with his band, Crazy Horse. Recorded July 20, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 4:53

Selection #18: Tuesday Afternoon (Composed by Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues; a Classic Rock Anthem from the Moody Blues' 1967 LP, "Days Of Future Passed;" the single version placed at #28 in the US in 1968. Recorded March 9 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 3:20

Selection #19: The Times They Are a-Changin' (Written by folk and folk-rock master, Bob Dylan; first appears on Dylan's LP, "The Times They Are A-Changin,'" which was recorded in 1963 and then finally released in January, 1964; this was the very song that first generated my interest in the musical creations of Bob Dylan. Recorded September 25, 2002; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:09

Selection #20: Rebel-Rouser (Originally recorded by the king of "twang guitar," Duane Eddy, whose powerful, reverb-laden electric guitar production--with energetic saxapone, as well--soared to #6 in the US during the summer of 1958, eventually spending 12 weeks in the Top 40. One of the most famous instrumentals of the Pop-Rock Era, composed by Duane Eddy and Lee Hazelwood. Recorded December 30, 2005; 1976 Martin D-35) 3:13

Selection #23: Puff (The Magic Dragon) (The classic folk/children's song written by Peter Yarrow--lyrics and music--and Leonard Lipton--lyrics; Peter Paul & Mary took the song to #2 in the US in 1963. Recorded July 30, 2004; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:05

Selection #24: Eight Miles High (Original Byrds member Gene Clark wrote it--considered by many Rock critics to be the very first psychedelic-sounding single ever released--in early 1966; climbed to a surprisingly high #14 on the US charts that year, overcoming the fact that many radio stations across the land refused to play it due to lyrics that were suspected by not a few radio programmers to refer to drugs; this was patent nonsence, though. According to the song's composer, Gene Clark, the song merely describes a plane flight--hence, the phrase "eight miles high"--from the USA to London, England, and the dramatic culture shock and associated disorientation that ensued for Clark, an American. Recorded June 2, 2004; 1976 Martin D-35) 3:26

Selection #25: Apache (One of the most famous instrumentals of the Rock 'N Roll Era. Composed by UK musician Jerry Lordan in 1960--the first recorded version was by a then-popular UK guitarist named Bert Weedon. Soon after, a group by the name of The Shadows got hold of the tune--they were the back-up group for singer Cliff Richards; they were looking for a hit. "Apache" was suggested as a B-side to "Quartermaster's Stores." That song went nowhere, but the reaction to "Apache" was instantly phenomenal. In 1961, guitarist Jorgan Ingmann of Denmark took his own brilliant cover of Apache to #2 on the US Billboard Pop Charts. Recorded December 1 2002; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:49

Selection #26: California Dreamin' (One of the truly great Pop-Rock anthems of the 1960s. Composed by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips. An early version in 1965 by ex-folk singer Barry McGuire of the New Christy Minstrels went nowhere on the charts, despite the fact that The Mamas And The Papas were backing him on the studio recording. In early 1966, John Phillips recorded his own arrangement of the song with The Mamas And The Papas. That version soared to #4 on the US Billboard Pop Charts, entering the Top 40 on February 5, 1966. Recorded April 7, 2005; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:30

Selection #27: Love Is The Sweetest Thing (Here's a genuine forgotten gem, a classic standard composed by bandleader Ray Noble in 1933. Noble's version, with singer Al Bowlly, was the third-most popular song in the US for the entire year of 1933. Recorded November 14, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:13

Selection #28: Highwayman (Words and music by Jimmy Webb. Glen Campbell originally recorded it for his "Highwayman" LP in 1979, but The Highwaymen--composed of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings--took it to #1 on the US Country Music Charts in 1984. Recorded December 29, 2003; 1976 Martin D-35) 2:38

Selection #29: Red Rubber Ball (A #2 song for The Cyrkle on the US Billboard Pop charts in the early Summer of 1966. A collaborative composition by Paul Simon--of Simon And Garfunkel fame--and Bruce Woodley, an original member of the Australian Folk group, The Seekers. Recorded July 10, 2005; 1976 Martin D-35)

Selection #30: When Johnny Comes Marching Home (The traditional American Civil War song written in 1863--during the height of the American Civil War--by Patrick S. Gilmore under the pseudonym Louis Lambert. Gilmore was bandmaster of Ben Butler's Union Army of occupation in New Orleans at the time. Recorded November 30, 2002; 1976 Martin D-35) 3:01

Soared to #2 in the summer of 1971, eventually spending 14 weeks in the Top 40. Entered the Top 40 on June 26, 1971.

Selection #33: Green Green (The first US Billboard Top 40 song by American Folk legends The New Christy Minstrels, and, indeed, this became their highest charting single ever, topping out at #14 in the summer of 1963. Initially entered the Top 40 on July 27, 1963--and then went on to spend seven weeks in the Top 40; composed by Christy member Barry McGuire and group leader Randy Sparks. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar and originally recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 7-22-1985) 1:51

Selection #34: Ring Of Fire (One of Johnny Cash's biggest crossover Pop and Country Music chart successes. Placed #17 on the US Billboard Pop charts in the summer of 1963, spending 10 weeks in the Top 40. Stayed atop the US Country Music charts a full 7 weeks; entered the Billboard Top 40 Pop chart on June 22, 1963. Written by future Johnny Cash wife June Carter and her collaborator Merle Kilgore. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer, purchased in Calif., on 5-19-2003) 2:17

Selection #38: A World Of Our Own (A Tom Springfield--brother of Pop singer Dusty Springfield--composition, originally recorded by the Australian folk group The Seekers whose version topped out at #19 US Billboard during the summer of 1965. A cover arrangement by American Country Music superstar Sonny James reached #1 US Country Billboard in 1967; I recorded my rendition on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar through a portable General Electric stereo cassette machine on 7-25-1983; Calif.). 1:43

Selection #39: There's A Place (Here's a song with an interesting distinction. It was the very first track The Beatles ever recorded specifically intended for an album, recorded on February 11, 1963, during 10 takes for the group's UK debut LP release, "Please Please Me." "There's A Place" is a John Lennon-Paul McCartney composition that when eventually released in the US in 1964, climbed to #74 on the Billboard Pop charts. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer, purchased in Calif., on 1-23-2003) 2:05

Selection #41: O Holy Night (The classic Christmas song; melody written by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the words of a French poem "Minuit, chrétiens"--Midnight, Christians--by Placide Cappeau. Singer Martina McBride has enjoyed the best chart success with song in the United States, taking it to #41 on the US Billboard Country Music charts in 2001--the last of five separate US Country Music Top 100 entries of McBride's version of "O Holy Night"--all from 1997 to 2001. My arrangement is perhaps radically different than most others. I've picked up the pace dramatically, so that what comes across is closer to what could likely best be described as a "triumphant march." Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer, purchased in Calif., on 4-12-2002) 2:01

Selection #42: Beyond The Timberline (An Inyo original composition. The title song for my Cyber-CD. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; digitally remastered from the original 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine recording on April 8, 1987. This was recorded during my very last solo recording session with a 12-string guitar.) 2:27

Selection #43: (Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I (A huge hit for Elvis Presley, who took "A Fool Such As I" to #2 US Billboard during Spring, 1959. Written by Bill Trader and published in 1952. American Country Music legend Hank Snow had already recorded it; Snow's original version soared to #4 US Billboard Country in early 1953; Even His Bobness himself Bob Dylan cut two arrangements, one in 1967 for "The Basement Tapes" and another in 1969, which wasn't released until 1973--that version actually charted at #51 US Billboard. I recorded my own version with a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar through a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 12-28-1984). 2:44

Selection #45: Hoochie Coochie Man (A Variation...) (The classic Blues song; written in 1954 by the legendary Willie Dixon, but widely popularized by Blues master Muddy Waters, who took the song to #8 on the US Billboard Black Singles chart. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; originally recorded on a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on April 8 1987. This was recorded during my very last 12-string guitar recording session.) 2:38

Selection #46: River To Heaven (An Inyo original composition; played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer, purchased in Calif., on 2-18-2004) 2:29

Selection #47: This Land (Is Your Land) (One of the great Folk songs of all time; written by Woody Guthrie in 1940, although he didn't get around to recording it until 1944--and the song wasn't even published until 1951. My opening intro, pounding on the lower register strings, is based on Glen Campbell's arrangement from his 1960s album, "The Astounding 12-String Guitar Of Glen Campbell." Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar and originally recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 12-26-1984). 2:23

Selection #48: Eight Days A Week (A #1 US Billboard hit for The Beatles in early 1965. First appears on The Fab Four's UK-released album "Beatles For Sale"--was also included on the US LP "Beatles VI" The song has variously been attributed to Paul McCartney alone, though many believe that is was indeed a genuine Lennon-McCartney collaboration.

Selection #49: Sliding (An Inyo original composition.

Selection #53: Freight Train (The ultra-classic American Folk song, penned by Elizabeth Cotten in the early 1900s when she was 12 years old. An oft-covered song, indeed. Rusty Draper had the biggest US Billboard success with "Freight Train," taking it to #6 during the late Spring and Summer of 1957--entered the Top 40 on May 27, 1957, then remained there for 13 weeks. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string; recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 12-28-1984). 2:02

Selection #54: The Letter (The wildly popular #1 US Billboard hit by The Box Tops during early Fall, 1967--it was, in fact, the #1 US song for the entire year of 1967. Composed by Wayne Carson Thompson. Covers by The Arbors and Joe Cocker went #20 and #7 US Billboard during Spring 1969 and late Spring 1970, respectively. I'm playing a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar, recorded through a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 1-10-1984). 2:25

Selection #55: White Rabbit (Written by Rock/Pop singing legend Grace Slick--real name Grace Barnett Wind--around 1965 or '66 when she was with a band called The Great Society.

Selection #57: I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (The ultra-classic Hank Williams song, penned in 1949. The original release by Williams never actually charted in the US, per se--it was merely the B-Side (reverse side) to his 1949 #2 US Billboard hit, "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It"--still, it's one of the more memorable songs closely associated with Hank Williams; a posthumous release of the Williams record made it to #43 US Country Music Billboard in 1966; that same year a cover by B.J. Thomas rose to #8 US Billboard. And professional US football player Terry Bradshaw (four-time Super Bowl Champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers) made #17 US on the US Country Singles chart in 1976 with the song. Recorded with a portable stereo cassette tape machine on 5-18-1983. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar.) 1:58

Selection #58: I Call Your Name (A John Lennon composition. First appears on The Beatles' 1964 US-release LP, "The Beatles' Second Album" and then later on a UK ep album called "Long Tall Sally." Before Lennon recorded "I Call Your Name" with The Beatles, he had actually given it to Billy J. Kramer of The Dakotas, who released it as the B-side to their hit "Bad To Me" (a Lennon-McCartney collaboration). "I Call Your Name" was also covered by The Mamas And The Papas on their 1966 LP, "If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears"--a version that inspired my own rendition.

Selection #60: On Broadway (The classic song made popular by The Drifters; composed by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil in collaboration with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The Drifters' version climbed to #9 US Billboard during the Spring of 1963, remaining in the Top 40 for 8 weeks; first entry into the Top 40 came on April 6, 1963. My arrangement is loosely based on the fantastic cover by George Benson--went to #7 US Billboard in the Spring of 1978, having entered the Top 40 on April 22, 1978. Stayed there for 10 weeks. Benson's version won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance.

Paleontology-Related Pages

Web sites I have created pertaining to fossils

  • Fossils In Death Valley National Park: A site dedicated to the paleontology, geology, and natural wonders of Death Valley National Park; lots of on-site photographs of scenic localities within the park; images of fossils specimens; links to many virtual field trips of fossil-bearing interest.
  • Fossil Insects And Vertebrates On The Mojave Desert, California: Journey to two world-famous fossil sites in the middle Miocene Barstow Formation: one locality yields upwards of 50 species of fully three-dimensional, silicified freshwater insects, arachnids, and crustaceans that can be dissolved free and intact from calcareous concretions; a second Barstow Formation district provides vertebrate paleontologists with one of the greatest concentrations of Miocene mammal fossils yet recovered from North America--it's the type locality for the Bartovian State of the Miocene Epoch, 15.9 to 12.5 million years ago, with which all geologically time-equivalent rocks in North American are compared.
  • A Visit To Fossil Valley, Great Basin Desert, Nevada: Take a virtual field trip to a Nevada locality that yields the most complete, diverse, fossil assemblage of terrestrial Miocene plants and animals known from North America--and perhaps the world, as well.
  • Fossils At Red Rock Canyon State Park, California: Visit wildly colorful Red Rock Canyon State Park on California's northern Mojave Desert, approximately 130 miles north of Los Angeles--scene of innumerable Hollywood film productions and commercials over the years--where the Middle to Late Miocene (13 to 7 million years old) Dove Spring Formation, along with a classic deposit of petrified woods, yields one of the great terrestrial, land-deposited Miocene vertebrate fossil faunas in all the western United States.
  • Late Pennsylvanian Fossils In Kansas: Travel to the midwestern plains to discover the classic late Pennsylvanian fossil wealth of Kansas--abundant, supremely well-preserved associations of such invertebrate animals as brachiopods, bryozoans, corals, echinoderms, fusulinids, mollusks (gastropods, pelecypods, cephalopods, scaphopods), and sponges; one of the great places on the planet to find fossils some 307 to 299 million years old.
  • Fossil Plants Of The Ione Basin, California: Head to Amador County in the western foothills of California's Sierra Nevada to explore the fossil leaf-bearing Middle Eocene Ione Formation of the Ione Basin. This is a completely undescribed fossil flora from a geologically fascinating district that produces not only paleobotanically invaluable suites of fossil leaves, but also world-renowned commercial deposits of silica sand, high-grade kaolinite clay and the extraordinarily rare Montan Wax-rich lignites (a type of low grade coal).
  • Trilobites In The Marble Mountains, Mojave Desert, California: Take a trip to the place that first inspired my life-long fascination and interest in fossils--the classic trilobite quarry in the Lower Cambrian Latham Shale, in the Marble Mountains of California's Mojave Desert. It's a special place, now included in the rather recently established Trilobite Wilderness, where some 21 species of ancient plants and animals have been found--including trilobites, an echinoderm, a coelenterate, mollusks, blue-green algae and brachiopods.
  • Early Cambrian Fossils Of Westgard Pass, California: Visit the Westgard Pass area, a world-renowned geologic wonderland several miles east of Big Pine, California, in the neighboring White-Inyo Mountains, to examine one of the best places in the world to find archaeocyathids--an enigmatic invertebrate animal that went extinct some 510 million years ago, never surviving past the early Cambrian; also present there in rocks over a half billion years old are locally common trilobites, plus annelid and arthropod trails, and early echinoderms.
  • A Visit To Ammonite Canyon, Nevada: Explore one of the best-exposed, most complete fossiliferous marine late Triassic through early Jurassic geologic sections in the world--a place where the important end-time Triassic mass extinction has been preserved in the paleontological record. Lots of key species of ammonites, brachiopods, corals, gastropods and pelecypods.
  • Fossils In Millard County, Utah: Take virtual field trips to two world-famous fossil localities in Millard County, Utah--Wheeler Amphitheater in the trilobite-bearing middle Cambrian Wheeler Shale; and Fossil Mountain in the brachiopod-ostracod-gastropod-echinoderm-trilobite rich lower Ordovician Pogonip Group.
  • Paleozoic Era Fossils At Mazourka Canyon, Inyo County, California: Visit a productive Paleozoic Era fossil-bearing area near Independence, California--along the east side of California's Owens Valley, with the great Sierra Nevada as a dramatic backdrop--a paleontologically fascinating place that yields a great assortment of invertebrate animals.
  • Late Triassic Ichthyosaur And Invertebrate Fossils In Nevada: Journey to two classic, world-famous fossil localities in the Upper Triassic Luning Formation of Nevada--Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park and Coral Reef Canyon. At Berlin-Ichthyosaur, observe in-situ the remains of several gigantic ichthyosaur skeletons preserved in a fossil quarry; then head out into the hills, outside the state park, to find plentiful pelecypods, gastropods, brachiopods and ammonoids. At Coral Reef Canyon, find an amazing abundance of corals, sponges, brachiopods, echinoids (sea urchins), pelecypods, gastropods, belemnites and ammonoids.
  • Fossils From The Kettleman Hills, California: Visit one of California's premiere Pliocene-age (approximately 4.5 to 2.0 million years old) fossil localities--the Kettleman Hills, which lie along the western edge of California's Great Central Valley northwest of Bakersfield.

The Santa Barbara Files--Two Years of Guitar Playing in Santa Barbara, California

28 selections I digitally re-mastered from analog tapes I recorded while living for two years in Santa Barbara, California. In early May of 1980, while living in the LA area, I took advantage of a fantastic opportunity to run on up the coast for a stay in Santa Barbara--a "stay" that lasted some two years, as it turned out. The cyber-cd includes at least one selection from every month in which I recorded during that residence in Santa Barbara: May 1980 to June 1982.
