Take Me Back

Bill Vaughan, Aaron Clay, Chris Sexton, Mac Walter
Bill Vaughan


One of my earliest attempts, done in the late 60's, it has often been requested as a track on an album.  Here it is, with guitar by Mac Walter, bass by Aaron Clay and the wonderful overlaid orchestration by Chris Sexton.
