The Prime Cutts features recordings of many of the songs that I have written over the last three decades.
You are able to LISTEN to each of the 47 songs posted here through an audio player that is built into the website; you do not have to have any specific or additional audio software installed on your own digital device. Once you have navigated to a song's individual page, you can listen in one of two ways. You can click the arrow-in-the-box to the left of the song's title, or if you mouse over the repeated title below the gray line (with the timing next to it), yet another PLAY icon will appear. But PLEASE, ADJUST YOUR DEVICE'S VOLUME LEVEL DOWN because the streaming audio player is robust and higher than you may expect or prefer!
"Why 47 recordings?" you ask. Because it's a prime number! Ha!
Without charge, you may DOWNLOAD any or all of the tracks to add to your audio collection. Simply click on the DOWNLOAD button that is clearly visible in the uppermost panel of each page. My hope is, of course, that you will find songs that set your toes tapping AND that you will pass the link to this site to friends so their toes can get in on the action too.
Some of these “prime cuts” were written and recorded years ago, some more recently. Some songs are "singles"; other tracks were released on one of three CDs that I’ve produced. Eight more recent songs are grouped in a collection "Going Down The Road Feeling Glad" that is not available in hard copy. Many of the songs were recorded in a professional recording studio with the help of terrific musicians; I recorded the others by myself at home using the GarageBand computer software; I refer to these as “Studio C Recordings” -- "C" for Cutts.
Each song’s page provides information about when the song was composed, when and where it was recorded, and what musicians contributed to that recording. I have posted the lyrics if you are one who likes to follow the printed word or should any lyric be unclear to your ear; just keep scrolling down.
The recordings are grouped thematically, or, in the case of first two categories, there are small albums. Along the left you can see the navigation buttons which will produce a small menu of the songs within that grouping. Within each theme, songs appear chronologically in the order in which I recorded them from the bottom so that the more recent songs are towards the top of each list.
Please enjoy, and visit often to see what is new!
