The last time I looked, neither Donald Trump nor Jeff Sessions have managed to cancel Summer - - what a relief! On June 20th (actually the day before Summer begins, but so close as to make no difference), Something Completely Different will celebrate the change of season with many warm songs which anyone can record and take to the beach (not mandatory).  

Just think! Three different versions of the song Summertime, by Miles Davis, Big Brother & The Holding Company (featuring Janice, of course), and (hope you're ready for this one) Pete Seeger. You'll also hear three different Summer songs by Michael Franks, three others from Nana Mouskouri (Turn on the Sun, Seasons in the Sun, The Last Rose of Summer (that one is tres corny, but what the heck?), and a beautiful instrumental called When Summer Comes, played to perfection by The Very Tall Band (Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown & Milt Jackson.) Also some real off-the-wall offerings, including That Lucky Old Sun by Frankie Laine (a very big hit in my youth), Shine on, Harvest Moon by Leon Redbone and (yes, friends, it's true) Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly & The Family Stone.  

So...listen to all this wonderful music (and much, much more) and you'll be well prepared for the beach of your choice!
