12 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Traditional Folk, FOLK: Folk Blues
For my granddaughter, Kendall''s, first birthday, I compiled a Three CD set of songs I''ve been performing over the past 40 years. They encompassed many different genres, but the one thing all of these tunes had in common was I wished I''d written them! Great stuff from great writers which I''ve called Abuelo''s (Grandfather''s)favorites.
When I set down to attempt to select the best of the collection to share with the public, it was extremely difficult, but I finally came up with "the dirty dozen", songs from J.J. Cale, Jim Croce, Shel Silverstein, Gary P. Nunn, T-Bone Walker, Ed Bruce, John Cafferty, Chuck Pyle, Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway, Hugh Moffat, Jimmie Rogers and Larry Weiss.
There''s something for everyone here. It will be several more years before my Nieta, Kendall, can appreciate all the tunes, but I had to lay them down while I still have my
guitar and vocal chops. Everyone else can enjoy these killer tunes right now. So kick back, relax and listen.
SAN CARLOS, SONORA, MEXICO- Leslie Sahlen''s Gatorlegs Music of Tucson, Arizona has been retained by The Bio-Res-Med Medical Arts Center of San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, to provide recording and promotion to native and resident artists in the San Carlos area as part of an ongoing SOUNDS OF SAN CARLOS COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT SERIES.
"Dr. David Walker, Founder and Executive Director of Bio-Res-Med and I both believe the universal language of music has healing abilities." explains Ms. Sahlen. "My husband is a songwriter so we record song demos in our home. Word got out in our village and some amazing musicians started literally knocking on my door. I became a reluctant one woman record company."
Limited edition CDs have been recorded by Christian composer-pianist, Christie Forester (https://www.tradebit.com ; Los Cuates, "The Twins", a unique Latin acoustic quartet consisting of two twin brothers and two look-a-like sons. (https://www.tradebit.com ) Further, these recorded products are distributed digitally and online by Gatorlegs Music (https://www.tradebit.com), allowing these gifted musical artists to reach a wider audience.
Ms. Sahlen, herself, resides in the seaside village of San Carlos receiving treatment for health problems she believes are the result of silicone breast implants in the 1970s. The disabling fatigue, pain and high medical costs forced the sale of her thriving lecture agency in Dallas, Texas in the late 1980s. "The silicone brain fog was tragic in a business where the spoken word is so integral.", Ms. Sahlen explained.
For years she managed to work part-time at Austin''s Paramount Theater, then later with Las Vegas agent, Sal Murillo, and 1960s rock diva, Spanky McFarlane . Even part time became physically impossible so Ms. Sahlen retired to Mexico where medical care is less costly.
After the destruction of Hurricane Marty, Ms. Sahlen produced the SAN CARLOS 1960''S MUSIC FESTIVAL in December 2003 (https://www.tradebit.com) to benefit the non-profit San Carlos emergency medical service, RESCATE (https://www.tradebit.com)
Gatorlegs titles are available online through indie sites https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com. Future releases will include 12 Year old Mexican vocalist, Honey, classical guitarist Ramon, the Children''s Chorus of Casa de la Cultura of Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico and Best of the 2003 San Carlos 1960s Music Festival featuring Chris Montez.
