“Since I Turned It All Over to Him”

Some video is starting to trickle out from the Eloise Phillips celebration singing this past weekend. The first clip was really just too crummy to elevate to the main page, but via reader KC comes this link, which seems to do a good job of capturing the event.

Stan Whitmire sets things off at a pretty ambitious clip that the folks have trouble following at first (this reminds me of a comment Phillips made in the “I’ll Keep On Singing” documentary, words to the effect of: you better be nice to your pianists, cause they can make you or break you), but the singers do a decent job of catching up once they get the hang of things. You’ll notice that Phillips herself is at the organ. Please feel free to post any more video from the event in the comments, even if they will only make me even sorrier to have missed it.

    The pace isn’t the problem, really. There was an adequate intro to establish tempo. The problem is that everyone’s head is buried in the book and they aren’t watching the director.

    “The girl in red” is Eloise’s daughter, Tracey.

    And no finer pianist to be found than “the girl in red”! She’s versatile, and she’s fabulous.
