Re: [Harp-L] re: me and mr. Hohner

This is from one of at least 2 albums that Bobby Darin put out in the late sixties that were a complete departure from his pop and Las Vegas slick stuff from before. I had 2 of them at one time. They were this sort of folk, country rock, protest music. He said something about no longer believing in the music his was doing strictly for profit.

All true Rick, Bobby Darin was a very talented guy ...gone all to soon.
I wasn't sure that was him actually playing the harmonica but there can be no argument
It was really bad.
Having said all this again, that could be a great cover for someone with wonderful harp solo

Yes, but if it wasn't for all the crap harmonica players (or people who
stick a harp in their gob and breath)
there wouldn't be hardly any harmonica players, and hardly any sales, and
they's stop making 'em, and we'd all
have to play something else. Now that would be a bad thing....wouldn't it??
Bobby couldn't play harp for nuts, but I forgive him, on account of all the
other good things he did (he ain't the only Bobby who couldn't play
harp, but did, with nobody holding it against him)

Very entertaining Bobby Darin song! Subversive. Never heard it before. With very lame harmonica playing. Once again, just because some guy is the singer in a band he thinks he has a license to play the harmonica no matter how little he knows about playing it or how hard he sucks. Cletus White.
