Song of the Day: "la vie en rose", 1947, Edith Piaf.
This was the original French recording of the song. In 1950, several artists, including Edith and Louis Armstrong, recorded the song in English. I included the kiss and "C'est la vie." at the end from Edith's 1950 English version.
I got a copyright claim on YouTube for this song. From Sony, for infringing on "La Vie En Rose, Live (2012)". 1947 is 74 years ago??? I thought copyright was 70 years, apparently it's 95. Still, claiming I'm infringing on a 2012 recording I've never heard of, copying a 1947 song seems incongruous. I contested the claim. An interesting exercise, hopefully I won't lose my YouTube channel.
I greatly enjoyed playing Sedona Taphouse. Started out in the direct sun on an 86° evening, but it really wasn't bad. Material was well received, yay! Management asked me back, yay! Here is a fine pic from this evening.
I just added Set #5 to the Set Lists page. I think this is the last set I will do for a while. In anticipation of getting some gigs (no jinx, fingers crossed), I will slow down on adding new songs and instead spend more time practicing the 75 songs in Sets 1-5.
