From the recording The One Delight
Song For An Imaginary Life
Written by Billy Carl Mancini & Ruby Bird, Published by Bonk Zone Music ASCAP ©2021
This is one of those songs that I’ve had kicking around for many years. Might have been sort of inspired by John McLaughlin. Although I never recorded it, I never forgot it and often played it when I was just messing around on the guitar. I decided it was time to let it out of my brain and into the world. Ruby added some cool keyboard melodies to finish it off. This is one of only two tracks where we brought in another musician to play. The song was too weird for either of us to do percussion, so we called Joe Jaworski to play cajon and assorted things in his bag of percussive tricks. We knew he’d know what to do. The title is just something we imagined….
