Good morning folks,

For years November 22nd was a date that always conjured up sad memories....I was 13 (a very impressionable age!) when John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963. It wasn't until 1997 that my feelings/memories about November 22nd was the date of my second Ellis Paul show! :) Now when I think of November 22nd, I remember waiting in the dark parking lot of the Unitarian Church in Titusville, NJ with my friend Robb....waiting for the doors to open... and seeing Ellis Paul arrive in his little red Honda Civic (who knew?) :) Ellis parked facing or two stalls away. I had only seen Ellis Paul once before - six months earlier (the life changing event was May 22, 1997) ;) - and when he got out of the car and I was able to recognize him I remember screaming "That's Ellis Paul!" :lol: Gosh...but I was crazy then. :wink: Anyway, Jennifer Kimball was supposed to open the show, but she got sick and wasn't able to a local girl did the opening set...and for the life of me I don't remember her name and didn't write it down! (Shari, I didn't know what an important detail that would be!) :)'s the setlist from that night. Most of these songs I was hearing for the first time. I'll let you guys try to guess what the last number was. I wrote the setlist on the back of my little purple ticket. Still have it, of course. :)

Seize the Day
Did Galileo Pray
Angel in Manhattan
The World Ain’t Slowing Down
The Art of Distance
She Wasn’t Listening (a cappela)
Trolley Car
All Things Being the Same
Paris in a Day
Translucent Soul

I have a picture of me with Ellis taken that night - the first! :) The picture is on the side of a little frig that I have in my office. I still have the brown boots and brown vest that I was wearing that night. The boots were new then. I still wear them. ;)

Can you guess what the last/encore number was? It was also sung a cappela.

Well, I never would have guessed that...but I see one of my favorites, the Art of Distance. I'd like to hear that live someday.

If memory serves me well......Ellis would often end his shows with the acapella number, oh, what's the title? Strange World? Beautiful World?

I think that's it. That's my guess......Beautiful World

Good guess, Paddy....but as Oscar the Grouch would say...

Ding dong - you're wrong!


(Think earlier.....)

Okay, earlier it is.....I was surprised to learn, at some point in my Ellis Paul education, that Ellis' song "Say Something" was one he often did a capella. I do believe I've seen Ellis close a show with it.

Say Something
