Back in the dark ages of cassette tapes we used to buy children's music tapes for our daughter. Stuff like Sharon Lois and Bram, Richard Scary, Raffi etc..
One year she rec'd a cassette as a Christmas gift from one of her teachers. Bananas in His Eyebrows by Lynne Stones
YouTube playlist link for Bananas in His Eyebrows album by Lynne Stones
There was one tune I felt was out of place on a children's alum. It was obviously a Christian song. It reminded me of The Rankin Family. I liked it. I started to learn it on the guitar, using chord harmony. But one day the cassette died and I was never to hear it again in DECADES. I no longer remember how the break went
This week I found it on YouTube, and thought I'd share it. I know nothing about the tune, so I looked it up on Google. Bad move! there seems to be dozens of worship tunes named In Your Presence and I don't know who wrote THIS one.
MP3: too big to attach
What I found on YouTube warning TonyKgull the audio is mp3 in MKV container ---- buy a new computer
I hope one of you may like it enough to include it in your setlist
RobertW, had a little google search. From what I can see on her website it looks like she writes the songs (or maybe she's just not giving credit where credit is due). It's also possible that she lives here in Victoria. She's Canadian, the photos on her site look local, and I found a reference to somebody with the same name working at the legislature here in town. If I run into her I'll ask her (joke).
looks like it I did a search for her album credits all the songs by her except the last one by Luke Stones
Album Notes Lynne Stones' love of music is reflected in this creative collection of material. Her music, full of polished talent, positive energy, careful selection of tunes and variety of instrumentation has earned her both Juno and West Coast Music Award nominations! Lynne earned a professional teaching certificate from University of Manitoba plus a Double Music Major Bachelor's Degree from UBC. She spent years working as a Music Specialist in the school system before performing with her Banana Band in public venues. Since then she's given hundreds of concerts for the whole family in city-wide festivals and major theatres.
For the last 15 years, Lynne has worked mainly with University students co-pastoring a local church with her husband John in Victoria, BC where she now lives. Lynne is the proud Mother of two married sons and Nana to seven greatly beloved grandchildren!
RobertW, That youtube link worked for me! Ha ha! Keepin this computer!
Very nice song. I actually wish there were way more sax solos in Christian music cuz I'm a sucker for a nice piano song with a sax solo in it. The sax is such an underappreciated and under (maybe even never) used instrument in contemporary music these days.
