About "If I Had It All"
This song is an original composition, a short version of a 15 minute excursion of Country Western Blues Ballad, a beloved, unforgotten tradition in American Song Experience. This piece is specifically infused in Celtic/Scottish musical cadence as a matriculated rhythmic dance ballad. Then, come the lyrics, the process of time and cultural change, as if steeped unsettled, from coast to coast, across the North American Continent. Is it Scotch, or Bourbon, or Sour Mash, perhaps it is the spirit of "Rye", aged in an oak cask since the late 1920's? The ping-pong back'n'forth of the styles of music expression, melding the fashionable oscillation evolving across our global oceans, and the ocean of our time, to re-surfaces in the USA with the migrations of the peoples of the world. The significant outcropping demarkated, coinciding to historical moments of transitional genre, such as The Southern Comfort Cultural Explosion of the mid 1930's. Soon following, a USA cultural mainlining synaptic re-vitalization occurred. Well educated passionate song artists of the British Isles, post WW2 displaced, yet counter culturally educated musicians and rags to riches sound engineers evolved an alchemical brew of historical proportions beginning in mid 1950's. This tradition expose entered the jet age, across the Atlantic Ocean and back to the USA, and joined "The Magical Mystery Tour" deforce, a music-social enigma, a re-flux phenomena, coined in mega Dollars "U$D" as "The British Invasion". This resulted in the longest run of music recording performance popularity of that last century, which continues to change the World. Song styles were exhumed from the grave so-to speak, and rediscovered in pilgrimages to the Deep South USA by many a famous British Island, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Rock-star. The re-percussive force maintains a furthering reach into Norway, Sweden,Denmark, Germany, moving beyond the downing of the Iron Curtain to around the globe. In the 1960's, delightful mathematical algorithms were manifested in electronic component arrangement, which translated technological discoveries into new sound vehicles such as stomp boxes, powerful amplifiers, microphones and guitar pick-ups. The en-flamed new sounds of the world we welded like metal, and artists wielded them upon our increasingly political culture like war axes of lore, transposing the same undertones of music style, adding contemporary muse and upbeat tempo and accessing the grandiosity of public venues. I had fallen in love, not only with the styles, but also, I'm bitten by the "BuG", which still drives me deeper to develop versions of playing relative to these styles that touched me. This I have maintained since about the time it fell off the charts, yet like the lovesick artist inside my soul, I am soulfully committed to "Bring It Home" and say "Hello" to my friends. Hence, the story unfolds as I'm driven to offer a humble reach at this beloved style. Composed and Performed by; Gordon Henryc
