This song was originally released on the “Simplicity” album in 2013. I always felt that the one lacking element on the original track was that it could use real drums with a real drummer. I also had very clear ideas about a remix and other added new elements.
I have known Beth Varela for a few years and have played several gigs with her along the way. I thought she would be right for this project.
The song is obviously about my wife and our relationship. Though the guy speaking in the song is a bit more of a drag than I think I am. (At least that is what I think and you would have to ask Mary about that.)
I briefly quote “The Wind Cries Mary” by Jimi Hendrix at the end of the guitar solo which is apt given that the song is for my wife Mary.
One thing I wanted to accomplish with this new version is to remind people that I indeed did start my musical life as a singer and just might return to it.

I have written two songs for my wife thus far. The first is an instrumental simply called “Mary.”
The second song is with vocal and is highlighted here.
Since the vast majority of my recordings have been instrumental and featuring guitar, there are a lot of people who have only come to know of me in recent years who are unaware of the fact that there are quite a lot of songs where I do sing. Most of my vocal stuff comes from before the year 2000, but this song appeared on the 2013 album “Simplicity” which had several vocal things on it.
I quote Jimi Hendrix from “The Wind Cries Mary” at the end of the guitar solo, which is fitting considering Mary is my wife’s name.
