Liner Notes, etc...
The Bob Boyd Sounds often receive requests to play someone's favorite song. We love requests because, frankly, they always help us to know which tunes you like best. Our repertoire is quite vast and sometimes we forget about a song if we are not asked to play it. Many times, after a gig, we reflect and wish we could have played one song or another. It's the old adage of 'too many good tunes and not enough time to play them all.' So here is a collection of some great songs that we are often requested to play. Our request is that you listen and enjoy.
To God, for giving us the gifts we use here for His glory and honor.
To everyone who has told us they enjoy our music. You have always encouraged us by your kind words and your presence at our performances. Our goal is to be ambassadors of good music, and we appreciate each of you so very much.
To our wives, for their love and support.
To Randy McDonald. Without his many hours of creative genius and his always welcome suggestions, this project would not have been possible.
The Bob Boyd Sounds are 4 musicians who sing. Each of these 4 guys is a featured vocalist on at least one of this albums 15 most-requested standards. The 4-part vocal harmonies you hear are not trick recording or multi-tracking. And all the instruments are being played by these same 4 guys. What you hear here is what you see and hear in person.
Bob, David and Randy worked as a trio since 1991. Pat Henry, an old friend and occasional member, joined them about 1997, and they became The Bob Boyd Sounds, adding 4 part vocal arrangements, some written by Bob Boyd ( but some of them just happened.)
Bob Boyd, piano and vocal stylist, was owner/manager of Boyd Music Center for 38 years. He also plays guitar, accordion, banjo and bass. He has been a musical entertainer for almost 50 years, but never has enjoyed playing as much as with The Sounds.
Pat Henry is a church Music Director, piano tuner/technician, bandleader and teacher. He plays trumpet, trombone and flute on this project, but he sometimes plays piano and even guitar on the band. Pat has recorded albums playing all instruments himself.
David Higginbotham, a public school music teacher and songwriter, plays upright and electric bass and guitar and sings the lead vocals. Davids creativity has played a major part in this project.
Randy McDonald plays drums and all percussion instruments on this album. Randy also plays piano and bass, and was the creative engineer on this and all our recording projects.
