When it comes to music, Arkansas native Patrick Glass knows it inside and out: he has a scary knowledge of the catalogs of about any artist one could imagine, he builds guitars at the Gibson Guitar Factory downtown, and he plays a pretty tight guitar in the local band Richard James and the Special Riders. He is also about as friendly (and enthusiastic) as a golden retriever. Supportive as he is active in the Memphis music scene, one can spot him at pretty much any must-see Memphis show. This week Mr. Glass shares what is making him a happy man.
1. Frank Sinatra – “The World We Knew (Over and Over)”
So a few months ago on a whim I picked up about 15 Frank Sinatra LPs from a dollar bin, and it’s taken me a while to go through them. I usually throw one on when I’m about to go to sleep, but when I hit this one I kind of flipped out. From that fuzzed out intro to Frank’s amazing vocal range, I think this one’s perfect.
