Video: Marshall Chapman & Tim Krekel: “I Love Everybody”

News, Video — By on September 23, 2010 7:17 pm

This gem was recorded in Louisville on May 30, 2009 at the Vernon Club at Bobbie Waston’s Dance or Die. The incomparable, rockin’ Nashville singer-songwriter Marshall Chapman (with 40 years in the business) joins her friend, guitarist Tim Krekel onstage at this music club/bowling alley (the alley is above the bar). Sadly, Krekel died of cancer shortly after this performance, the last Chapman would play with him.

This live performance appears as the closing track on Chapman’s latest CD (drops Oct. 26), Big Lonesome, dedicated to her friend Tim.

Chapman also sings of this performance in the song “Tim Revisited”:

“The last time I sang with Tim Krekel
The last time I sang with my friend
Bowling balls rumbled in the ceiling
While people danced like life would never end
One by one the band came up and joined us
Then kicked us all into that higher zone
If you were there, then I don’t have to tell you
How we sounded better than the Rolling Stones
Everybody loved everybody
Everybody loved everything
But when Tim turned up his amp and started playing
I swear I heard a far-off angel sing I’ll fly away”

We wish we’d been there. But we have this. Enjoy.
