186: Indian Summer(time)

Hi.

Today is a special day!
With the help of Cheeba
(from Canada)
& Matt(hias)
(from Germany, who also send me this pic to use)
and countless other sources
(let's count Rab & Co in for sure!)
I've gathered here another 53 (!) versions
of the good old Summertime song!
Amen.
I said I'd stay away from this song a bit & I did...
It's cold at night, hot (OK, warm) during the day,
it's a typical indian summer(time) over here in 2008.
-
No better time than the present to offer you this enormous batch of
versions, some of them REALLY aweful, some of them REALLY good,
and a lot of them, well, let's say they're OK.
-
Mind you, there are some UNEXPECTED cool surprises in this lot,
so if you're in for some more, be sure to catch this at once!
-
please enjoy!
(I know I did many times during this ride)

Honored by this proposal.
Even if i already spend to much time on my posts on footrack.blogspot.com

But why not sporadic interventions on challener request mode ?

E-mile said...

footrack, I'm counting on those sporadic interventions, they're much appreciated! I think you do a great job over at your spot, and ofcourse you have enough on your plate as it is :-)
