Topaz

This is my cover of “Topaz”, an instrumental released in 1961 in the UK by a group called “The Staccatos”. I cannot find any information about whether it charted, and if so, how high it went. If you happen to remember or can find out, let me know!

I think it is a cute number.

Mary Kay White

“Mary Kay White” is an original instrumental intended to be in the style of the Ventures. I wrote and recorded it on the occasion of receiving my Nash T-52 in Mary Kay White with gold anodized pickguard, which I selected to match my Nash Mary Kay S-57 and PB-57.

Mary Kaye was a real person, (January 9, 1924 – February 17, 2007) and was a guitarist and performer who was active from the 1940s through 1960s. Mary was photographed in a 1956 Fender promotional advertisement featuring a new Stratocaster. The white guitar with maple neck and gold hardware later became popularly known as “The Mary Kaye Strat.”
