Como Rien-Para Maria Hernandez
Now that I’ve gotten the Rock and Roll fever out I’d like to turn to my Salsa Roots. Maria Hernandez is the love of my life. She saved me from self destruction and has been with me for twelve years. I thank God for that. And what better way to honor her (and remember the late Cheo Feliciano) is to sing Como Rien. I feel the same way about Maria as Cheo felt about his wife.
Cheo Feliciano “In1962 I wrote “Como Rien”. I dedicated it to my wife. We were newlyweds and I was away in the Catskills. I was sitting in a bar observing all the couples around the bar. I started to miss my wife so I went to the phone booth and called her. It was around that atmosphere of love that the song was born. It was about what I was really feeling at that moment in time.”

Come On Let’s Go-Little Otis XXI
My first experience in learning this song to perform live was in 1983 with “The Movers” in Toledo. They covered the tune as recorded by Los Lobos on “And a Time to Dance” 1983 EP. I knew the composition as sung by Richie Valens since it was a staple on WCBS FM Golden Oldies Station in NYC. It definitely was a party song as done by Los Lobos and The Movers. I later started singing it with The Killer Flamingos in NYC when I returned to the city in 1985 before heading back to Amherst College to complete my senior year.

Richard Steven Valenzuela (May 13, 1941 – February 3, 1959), known as Ritchie Valens, was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. A rock and roll pioneer and a forefather of the Chicano rock movement, Valens’ recording career lasted only eight months. During this time, he had several hits, most notably “La Bamba”, which was originally a Mexican folk song. Valens transformed the song into one with a rock rhythm and beat, and it became a hit in 1958, making Valens a pioneer of the Spanish-speaking rock and roll movement. After several songwriting and demo recording sessions, he first songs recorded at Gold Star Studios, at a single studio session one afternoon in July 1958, were “Come On, Let’s Go,” an original (credited to Valens/Kuhn, Keane’s real name), and “Framed,” a Leiber and Stoller tune. Pressed and released within days of the recording session, the record was a success. Valens’ next record, a double A-side, which was the final record to be released in his lifetime, had the song “Donna” (written about a real girlfriend) coupled with “La Bamba.”

“I Fall to Pieces” is a single released by Patsy Cline in 1961, and was featured on her 1961 studio album, Patsy Cline Showcase. “I Fall to Pieces” was Cline’s first #1 hit on the Country charts, and her second hit single to cross over onto the Pop charts. It was the first of a string of songs that would be written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard (not always collaborating) for Cline.
“I Fall to Pieces” became one of Cline’s most-recognizable hit singles. It has also been classified as a country music standard.

Stardust Memories https://vimeo.com/92789699 I’ve often wondered what it would have been like if I had stayed married with my first wife Carmen and been around for our daughter Chasan’s development. At the same time, as I discuss in the documentary “Rocker Roller Rican”, being diagnosed with a bipolar state of mend with schizophrenic tendencies would have made both their lives a daily living hell. Recording the songs I have been doing the last few days has taken me through a series of emotions. Singing “Stardust”, as I do here, reminded me that I sang that song over and over again as I drove from CT to Ohio in August 1982. It was a way to deal with the heavy weight I felt that I was leaving them for good in my quest to realize a professional career. Over the years, I’ve used the song to open my poetry recitals and monologue presentations. Tonight, as I sang it, I did so looking over photographs of the three of us in happier times. I’m not ashamed to say I cried though not out of grief but relief that they’re alive living their lives as they choose as am I here in Ohio. Peace and blessings to the both of them.

“Stardust” is an American popular song composed in 1927 by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish. Originally titled “Star Dust”, Carmichael first recorded the song at the Gennett Records studio in Richmond, Indiana. The song, “a song about a song about love”, played in an idiosyncratic melody in medium tempo, became an American standard, and is considered one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century, with over 1,500 total recordings. In 2004, Carmichael’s original 1927 recording of the song was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain https://vimeo.com/92849556
I am no one special, just a common man with common thoughts. I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I’ve succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me, that has always been enough.
I treasure the time I lived in the desert in Tucson, Arizona. I spent a lot of time in Saguaro National Park with a very special love Guera Schäfer. She had fair skin, blue eyes. Her fathers side was German. Her mothers was Mexican. We had a son together born in 1993 (Alexander). He was gunned down in a drive by shooting in March 2008. That loss was he most painful time in our lives. There was a desert rain on the day of his funeral and I knew as I headed to the airport that I would never see her again. After the funeral she moved away from Tucson and disappeared into Oregon. I can still remember her sad eyes as we saw each other for the last time.

“Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain”
In the twilight glow I see her
Blue eyes cryin’ in rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we’d never meet again
Love is like a dyin’ ember
Only memories remain
Through the ages I’ll remember
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
Someday when we meet up yonder
We’ll stroll hand in hand again
In a land that knows no partin’
Blue eyes crying in rain

Originally recorded in 1945 by Roy Acuff, “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” was recorded by Hank Williams in 1951 for the Mother’s Best Flour Hour. Other early remakes of the song were made by Ferlin Husky (album Ferlin’s Favorites – November 1959), Slim Whitman (album Country Favorites – 1959), Gene Vincent (recorded October 15 1958/ album Crazy Times! -1960), Bill Anderson (album…Sings Counrty Heart Songs – January 15 1962), John D. Loudermilk (album Country Love Songs Plain and Simply Sung Country Love Songs Plain and Simply Sung – August 1968), and Conway Twitty (album Hello Darlin’ – June 1970). The version by Willie Nelson, recorded for his 1975 concept album, Red Headed Stranger, about a fugitive preacher on the run from the law after killing his wife, was lauded by country music historian Bill Malone as “a fine example of clean, uncluttered country music, [with] a spare arrangement that could have come straight out of the 1940s.” Rolling Stone noted the song was delivered with his “jazz-style phrasing” and was “the beating heart of Red Headed Stranger.”

Hello Mary Lou-Little Otis XXI
One way I learned English was to sing along with songs. The young Cathloic nuns and priests that taught me at St. Paul’s Grammar school in Brooklyn were big fans of the folk movement and had us do sing-longs in class.(“The Singing Nun” Moivie was a Favorite of theirs.) Thy not only had us do the French-language song “Dominique”, but songs like “Hello Mary Lou” that was co written by Father Cayet Mangiaracina in 1960.

“Hello Mary Lou” is a song written by U.S. singer Gene Pitney and Father Cayet Mangiaracina, first performed by Johnny Duncan in 1960, and later by Ricky Nelson in 1961. “Hello Mary Lou” is credited to two writers: Gene Pitney and Cayet Mangiaracina. Most know Pitney from his hits “Town Without Pity” and “Only Love Can Break a Heart.” But his co-writer never worked with Pitney on “Hello Mary Lou.” Cayet Mangiaracina is a priest; the tens of thousands of dollars he earns each year from the song are forwarded to the Dominican Order. Mangiaracina’s story begins in 1953 when the 18-year-old graduate of New Orleans’ Jesuit High School auditioned as a piano player for the Sparks, a local rock group. A year later, Mangiaracina wrote “Merry, Merry Lou,” a song of unrequited love that became a local hit for the Sparks. Two years later, Mangiaracina found a higher calling than rock; he decided he should serve others by becoming a priest. While Mangiaracina left New Orleans to study for the Dominican priesthood, the Sparks won an opportunity to record for Decca Records; one of the two songs they chose was “Merry, Merry Lou.” The song got national attention in 1958 when Bill Haley and his Comets recorded the tune as “Mary Mary Lou.” Later that year, Sam Cooke released his own cover of the song. Around this time, struggling songwriter Gene Pitney made a record as Billy Bryan; he also recorded with Ginny Arnell as part of a duo called Jamie and Jane. Pitney’s first success came writing hits for others: “Today’s Teardrops” for Roy Orbison, the Crystals’ “He’s a Rebel,” Bobby Vee’s “Rubber Ball” and 1961’s “Hello Mary Lou,” which became a huge hit for Ricky Nelson. Pitney’s “Hello Mary Lou” sounded so much like “Merry, Merry Lou” that the Sparks’ publisher sued. As a result, Father Mangiaracina was given co-authorship with Pitney. The priest’s mother received royalties from the song until her death in 1988; since then the payments, which total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, have gone to the Dominicans’ Southern province.
