“Look after each other!” ~ Beryl Edwards

This song, named after our first family house, is a tribute to my mum, Beryl (Betty, GG), who left us in December. It tells the story of her life in broad strokes and will be the soundtrack to her memorial slide show by my brother Geoff.
My mum was ever supportive of my efforts in music, buying me my first guitar, my first percussion (bongos) and transporting the school’s double bass so I could practise at home. The song backing suggests happy times on holiday in Hawaii and Mexico.

mre plays: cowbell, clave, guitar, ‘ukulele, brushes, cabassa, shaker, bass, voice

Nice tribute. I lost my mom some years back and also felt compelled to deal with my grief musically, so I empathize.

Enjoyed!
