    Summer Wind intrigues me. Are you familiar with the Frank Sinatra classic of that name - could it be that song?

    If not, can you discern any of the lyrics? Sorry to pepper you with questions. It's so rare that we come across a Randy solo bootleg.

    It's not the Sinatra song and I don't know that "Summer Wind" is the title; I named it that for convenience. The song reminds me a little of "Oh Darling/Wait and See" at the beginning. Here are the lyrics so far (the audio is not the best, unfortunately):

    Taken by surprise
    By the ocean in your eyes
    I think they say they finally found the shore
    Funny how time...?
    And you reach out to touch my hand
    I finally found a harbor in the storm
    Summer Wind
    You can close your eyes and take you there (?)
    Memories
    Really thought I'd..........there again
    Summer Wind
    Summer Wind
    Something in your eyes?
    But we never said goodbye
    Sometimes in a dream
    I hold you close
    .......? by the time
    .......? the tide?
    I reach out to touch...?
    and it goes
    Summer Wind
    I can close my eyes and take you there
    Memories
    Really thought I'd ? you there again.....?
    Summer Wind
    Summer Wind

    Summer Wind
    ....?thinking about you?
    Summer Wind
    Woah, Summer Wind
    I said, Summer Wind
    Close my eyes and take you there
    Memories
    ...time I bring you there again?

    Summer Wind
    (Repeat)
    Ooh, Summer Wind

    Let's keep on wishin' and hopin'. I'm sure D won't mind me sharing that "The Best of My Love" that Randy sings is not the Eagles song but the Emotions song of the same name! We knew he liked r&b.

    Hi,

    I'm new to this bulletin board. My name is Donny Ullstrom and I recorded with Randy on his first solo album in January of 1978. I also toured with his band the following summer in support of that album. I see that there are links to one of our shows in August at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach.
    Thank you to whoever posted those links. I was actually not aware that anyone was recording audio that night.
    I have a treat for everyone ! I have a recording of the monitor mix from our last show with Randy. I believe it was Sept. 6th or 8th 1978 at the Universal Amphitheatre when it was still an open air venue. We opened for Bob Welch . Christine McVie and Mick Fleetwood were there to support him.
    I'm in the process of getting that recording into my computer. Would you like me to upload that file to this bulletin board ?

    Donny

    ABSOLUTELY, YES!!!!!

    Hi Donny...I remember seeing your name in the credits when I first bought Randy's debut album on vinyl back in the late 70s.

    Oh my gosh!! That would be so wonderful.

    Mr. Ullstrom, I love your singing on "Best of My Love" - it's so much fun. I've listened to it over and over.

    I sent you a PM on Facebook of the track, in mp3 format.

    This is so exciting! Welcome, Donny

    I will figure out how to do that as soon as I get it into my computer.

    This is a great Bulletin Board ! Brings back so many good memories.

    And thank you for the compliment. Best Of My Love was such a great song.

    Randy wanted me to introduce it every night since I was singing it, and I would always say, "We're going to do a song now by some friends of ours. It's one called Best Of My Love." Naturally, everyone would think we were going to play the Eagles, Best Of My Love. Then we would start into this song and surprise everyone. I think you can hear me say "Fooled Ya".
