I recorded my first music album back in nineteen hundred and none of your business. It was a neat little record called, "Little Red Boat." Many people still request it, though by a myriad of names. "Little Red Truck," "Little Green Men," and my personal favorite, "Little Lead Balloon." The latter is about how it first went over. The album came out when cassettes were just becoming the rage. I received my first shipment of vinyl and cassette while on my way to a church in Louisiana. Upon arrival, I told the Pastor about my new musical work and that I would like to make the album available to his people. He was so very excited about the album release being at his church and told me he would like to make the announcement himself. Sure enough, after the service, he got up and addressed the people. "Folks, Brother David here has just recorded a new musical record. We're the first church that it has been offered to. After the service, he will have them set up in the foyer for sale at the price of seven dollars each. Just make your way back there and get as many as you like."
That all sounded great to me. My first record, my music being played by many people and a little extra money to actually pay back the loan for all the studio time. Then, on my way back to the sales table, the preacher added. "Now folks, I know that times are hard for a lot of you out there, so if you can't afford one of Brother David's new records, don't you worry. The church is gonna buy one and we'll run off as many copies as you need." I sold one (1) album that week!
Well, I've come along way since those times. Sometimes I sell two or three times more than that on my first night! Now here's your chance to get in on the ground floor yourself. THE NEW ALBUM IS OUT! Yes indeed. Two years in the making, with dozens of people involved, hundreds of instruments used, and it still just sounds like me sittin' on a rock strummin' a guitar and singin' on the prairie. It's the best I can do! But I really like what many folks have helped me put together in this new project. It's my heart and message in every song. You can get it here at the web site or the internet outlets that you usually use. Give it a listen and let me know if you like it. If you don't like it, I'd just as soon not hear from you! Now folks, I know that times are hard for a lot of you out there, so if you can't afford one of the new records, please don't record off of someone else's album. That's against the law. Just call me and I'll come over and sing it in person.
Love in the Lord
