"FREE" Cover Downloads by Mark Alexander Carroll and a Heartfelt THANKS for your ongoing support
To my fellow subscribers (2:53 A.M. 8/11/17)
I haven't touched base with you in a while, so here I am in the middle of a late night or early morning depending on ones perspective. We all have a passion for Music or we wouldn't be throwing ourselves out there for the World to see ... at least our small group, right? It doesn't matter ... The late Frank Zappa wrote a song 'We're Only In It For The Money' ... being sarcastic as only Frank could do. However, I'm not in it for the money or even the recognition. I do this because it's a LABOR OF LOVE and if you're not passionate enough, perhaps it's time for something else. Music is for sharing and sometimes just for ourselves - therapy, if you will. Okay, the Nine (9) songs I've posted thus far is the tip of the iceberg as they say and to promote more, well - you know it's tough. I'm going to release "These Words Remind" Album soon which will include some or all of the digital singles I've released and/or in the process of releasing for sale. Just for the fun of it, I am going to upload some cover tunes that can be downloaded for your music library or to share or to simply ignore. That's OK/Alright. We all have our "cup of tea" and may agree to disagree on what is good, bad or indifferent. So, hope you enjoy and I appreciate so much...so very much the sharing/postings/support all of you have provided. I have to happily say that I'm involved in several projects but will attempt to get to your campaigns as soon as my schedule allows so that I can support you more than I have. I'm hoping the music that has been shared by you has brought attention to your projects and has created excitement and fired up your ongoing passion for writing, producing, engineering, mixing, mastering and marketing ... It's not easy and we all need each other. Please remember my other passion to support Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of the digital single of the title Album song 'These Words Remind' are going directly to the organization. On FACEBOOK, I also have a personal Fundraiser where you have the opportunity to donate directly to St. Jude - any amount will do ... your pocket change - I mean that! - every penny counts to find a cure. Cautionary note: 'My Little Red Book' has three genre examples with my individual contribution snuggled in the middle, so when you start to listen, stay with it. It's my tribute to Burt Bacharach & Hal David's song which has been covered by many but on the Rock side, famously by Arthur Lee's group "Love". Some of the other's are straight forward copies of the original versions as I tried to stay true to the authenticity of them. All recorded in my little home studio, some several years ago. I hope you enjoy. Again, FREE DOWNLOADS from yours truly.
P.S. Only 'My Little Red Book' is attached to this Subscribers email; however, the other covers will be on the Song list placed after 'If One Knows'
