Here’s a Dusty One

Bruce Channel

Oooooooo! 1962! Here’s a tune that helped spark my interest in pop/ rock & roll. Bruce Channel may have had a one-hit wonder with Hey! Baby (I don’t know of any other of his tunes hitting AM radio back in those days). He did tour internationally and brought along his studio harmonica player, Delbert McClinton. Imagine! A couple of Fort Worth Texans loose in Europe!

Delbert went on to become a preeminent practitioner of Texas blues and roots music as a singer in his own right.

I built this rendition of Hey! Baby with PC Drums (drum machine), some acoustic guitars, an electric guitar, bass and the world reknown ‘ahhhh-ahhhh chorale’. You can listen here> hey-baby. Disclosure: The tune’s a vocal stretch for a baritone. I promise to not post any Beach Boys falsetto harmony tunes on these pages! Enjoy.
