A Moment to Remember (from this recording session)

It was getting late and we hoped that our next take on “Mystical Christmas” would wind it out for the evening.  Guitarist, Buddy Whittington was at the session.  I’ve worked and known Buddy for the better part of fifteen years. Buddy is about as famous for his quick wit and humorous entertaining stories as his extraordinary guitar genius.  As we finished the last take, I felt we nailed it, and with a sigh of relief, I said “Wow.”  Buddy said, “Yea, Dave, it sounded pretty damn good, but I think you said Santa Claus is out at the deer blind.  I didn’t think that would work.”  With a panic, everyone begin shouting “play back, play back!”  I just knew we would have to record another take, (and that made me feel bad because I muffed the word), but before the play back got to that part of the song, I glanced over at Buddy and he was kind of chuckling.  I knew I’d been had by that Whittington wit.  I packed up my grip and went home packing.
