The Music Club The Colors of Summer

After a lengthy break The Music Club reconvened June 29th 2002, with Dave & Sylvia Abbott hosting the gathering. 

There were many different interpretations of the theme from "The Summer of Love" to songs that had a significant impact on a particular summer (such as the first selection); or songs that were simply summer-y sounding.

Among those members playing tracks were (in no particular order): Dave & Sylvia Abbott, Dave Haynes, Joan Barrett, Rudy & Alex Danzinger, Simon & Maura Hill, Dave Morgan, Jeff Trager, Mike Martis and Toby Valerio.

These are the tracks we shared....
