Tony Smith – It’s A Swing Thing

You meet people different ways…and they’re all good!  I met Brenda Libby on Facebook.  Brenda Libby told me about Tony Smith and his CD and gave me contact information.  I met Tony Smith on the phone.  We had a nice conversation on the phone and he sent me a copy of “It’s A Swing Thing.”  It’s a wonderful CD!

Tony Smith has a strong, smoothe, clear voice that you can listen to all day! The musicians on the CD are great as well. Joining Tony Smith on the fiddle are: Bobby Regot on drums, Sonny Clark on keyboard, Scotty Henderson on pedal steel guitar, John Farrell on bass and Dino Strunk on lead guitar.  He is joined in vocals by Luann Turner and Linda Watson.

“Route 66” is my favorite…probably because of the New Mexico connection… and I love “Don’t Get Around Much Any More” “You Win Again,” “You Don’t Know Me” and “Somewhere Out In Texas!”  You will also totally enjoy “Takin’ On The Blues,” “Cab Driver,” “Up A Lazy River,” “I’ve Carried This Torch,” “Lady Be Good,” “Little Old Wine Drinker Me,” “Secret Love” and “It’s My Lazy Day.”  (I kept moving songs from the “I love” area to the “you will enjoy” area and realized they are all GREAT!)  This is a CD you need to add to your collection.  You can purchase it directly from Tony Smith at 831 Spencer Creek Rd, Camdenton, MO 65020. The cost is $12. which includes shipping.  You’ll be glad you did!
