I'm new to this forum. I hope someone out there can help me out. Several years ago while listening the radio I heard on a live solo recording Marc singing of Walking in Memphis. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and I could have sworn it was on KFOG radio and was from one of their "Live From The Archives" benefit CDs (an annual CD to benefit local food banks which they have been making for many years now).
I just l went through all the artists on all the CDs and he's on a couple but not with that song. I remember that in the recording he asks the audience to sing along as a fill in for the choir in the original recording.
Does anyone out there know of this recording and if so, know where I can get it?

I'm new to the board and just wanted to share some new music I've been digging with you guys. One artist is Duane Betts, the son of legendary Allman Brother, Dickey Betts. The other artist is Stoll Vaughan who frequently collaborates with Duane.
Hello everyone! Here's a music video I made putting Marc's beloved song "Old Soldier" together with some pictures and video clips of Steve McQueen. I thought the song just fit his life story so well, and I'd recently been researching how McQueen lived a troubled life but ultimately found peace at the end of it. I think Marc and McQueen fans alike will enjoy this. Watch it here, comment and share!
I'm trying to find an interview Marc did a number of years back. It had all the usual hits on it, but he also talked about having hit a writers block, and the painter Frederic Edwin Church who hit the mountain of all blocks when he could no longer paint... and ended up building a masterpiece of a house, Olana... He went on to talk about how he composed it on a rinky dink keyboard, and he just had to have that generic "Pop/rock" drum riff going on in the background (which his drummer then supplied). It is my absolute favorite performance of that song, but I can't find a recording of it anywhere. Does this ring a bell for anyone? I thought it was on WORLD CAFE, but I can't seem to find it there, either.
