Battle of the Bands: A Successful Shut Out

Some will say shutouts in the Battle of the Bands contest are bad. Obviously, we all like close match ups. However, even being a shutout my Battle was successful. First off I had a classic rock song performed by two artists in different genres.The comments and votes were up. The pageviews were more than double my last battle.

Nina Simone is a legendary singer. I knew Phil's version was pretty awesome. However, I thought Simone might make it interesting with her vocals and more piano driven sound. I was wrong.

Final Score: Phil Keaggy 12 Nina Simone 0

Well today we celebrate the winner "Shades of Green"

"Changes" from his Glass Harp Days

"Look in the Sky" from the Glass Harp debut...

Solo again with "The Wind and the Wheat"..

"Salvation Army Band"

Well I hope you enjoyed! I'll be back in September with a new battle.

Sometimes a shut out is interesting. I enjoy all the possibilities.

I am surprised that Simone did not get at least one vote, but I guess everyone else heard it the way I did. Keaggy did a fine job with his version of "Here Comes the Sun".
