"Valentine Blues"

-Approx. 1 Minute DL time-

Written by M.R. Keck in 1982 and released on his own "Whiplash Gumbo" CD in 1997. I have always liked this song, and feel it one of his best compositions. Last year I asked for and got permission to sing this one and release it on this album. It was originally recorded on 16-track and nothing has been done to change the original recording. Bassist John Davies and drummer Porky Hill were the rhythm section for the Cate Brothers, and did most of "Whiplash Gumbo's" bass and drum tracks during that period of time. Blues guitarist extrordinaire Coco Montoya (Blind Pig Records) kindly consented to do the solo work. He walked in to the studio carrying his Strat and a Fender Twin and set his gear up as we played the rhythm track. He tuned his guitar on the second pass, and then we hit the RECORD button on the third pass as he was warming up. Third times a charm! None of us wanted to do anything over after hearing that take. He was in and out in 30 minutes. My thanks to M.R. Keck for allowing me to do this tasty blues tune!

"Valentine Blues"
(M.R. Keck - 1982 ©Wild Hog Music)

Well I've been gettin' used to the lonelys,
For quite some time
But lately I've been thinkin' about
A one and only.... all mine
Now I don't need no wife
I can't invest too much time
But I just want to find
A 20th Century Valentine

You can be my lady
You can come and stay
At least until the magic wears off
Then I'll send you away
In our relative partings
I won't be so crude or spline
I'll thank you for the time
That you were my valentine

Now I don't think that you can do me
But you're free to try
'Cause I don't know how it feels
To be this so-called satisfied
But you know I'll keep on searchin'
Until the end of time
Somewhere I know I'm gonna' find
My Valentine
Now, won't you be my valentine
Won't you be my valentine
I just wanna' be your valentine
