It's gotten a little more than 2,000 unique views since it's upload on You Tube and the video I speak of is the live performance of "Thank You", the patriotic song that's been a part of Ray's concerts for a period of years now. Ray did a music video of the song a number of years ago and it's been quite a success on You Tube since it's debut there a few years ago...capturing more than 450,000 unique views so far. While the music video is stirring and unforgettable once you see it, the live performance is even more emotional, and for a song like "Thank You", a live performance rendition is a perfect companion to the official music video.
Here is the music video, uploaded onto You Tube in January 2010...
In the audio recording above Ray sings pretty much the whole song while in the concert video he changes tempo and delivers the song as a narrative combined with singing. This concert performance comes from the DVD that I've written about several times, Patriots and Politics, which you can still purchase at the Ray Stevens Web-Store. You can purchase that DVD and get a free copy of his book, Let's Get Political, and a flag pin for only a limited time HERE. It's being offered as a Memorial Day special and so my guess is the offer will only be good through Memorial Day and so if you come across this blog entry after the holiday then chances are the link will not work and the special will have expired by then.
The DVD, by itself, has the same selling price but with this special offer you'll also be getting the book, which sells for $10.00 at his store, for free.
