I still love this song. Though this version is a little fast, I really like the fact that, in the studio I double tracked the vocal, but live Jon and I sang together which is what we should have done for the recording on “Handle With Care”. The ending is particularly good with the three part harmony of Jon, Mick and Ken on vocals.
Lineup for this 1977 recording of the original song by Silver Laughter was Jon Ludtke on lead and backup vocals and guitar, Mick Orton on lead vocals and bass, Ken Wiles on backup vocals and lead guitar and Paul Staack on backup vocals and drums. We were at the Red Bull in Norfolk, NE, one of our favorite venues.
The composite photo of the 1977 Silver Laughter lineup was created with photos from Becky Livingston taken on New Year’s Eve of that year at an unidentified location.
