    ...I can still remember when I recorded this track on a Tascam Ministudio Porta Two, playing all the instruments (drum machine excepted!) and singing lead and harmony vocals. It was over 25 years ago and at very long last I've finally got around to making a digital recording of it. The song was written by Bob McDill and was a big hit for Don Williams in 1975. The sound quality isn't perfect but it's all I've got for now. For what it's worth, here it is:

    Pretty good for 4 track cassette. I started on a Porta One with a Yamaha DX7 and a Roland TR707. It was so addictive it only took me a couple years to graduate to an 8 track 1/2 inch reel2reel.
