Story behind the song
[description of the song]
The Incredible Mr Limpid starts off life as a chorus girl rather than Barney Fife...
[how the song got started]
My sister, Patty, gave me a flat, painted tin ornament. It's a mermaid. She has big green eyes and long brown hair and a little guitar. Since the song, Patty has sent me other mermaids, as well. Ornaments and stickers. Keep those mermaids comin'! I lov'em.
[about the recording]
This song always reminds me of Larry Loo when I sing it because it is a favorite of his, and I played it about 1000 times in a home recording so I was Loo Loo after that.
Today we recorded at Garth's studio, and this is what you hear here.
Doug Logan - Rhythm Guitar, ukelele, lead guitar
Kathy Moxham - Vocals and ukelele
Engineered by Garth Webber at Red Rooster Studios.
[a little more information]
If the song is unclear to you, I'll explain...she is actually from Memphis, Tennessee.
