Product Notes

Nancy and Phil Halpin began singing & playing together in 1970, the year they were married. Nancy handles the big stand-up bass & vocal harmonies backing up Phil's fine vocals & guitar. They began their professional career around 1985 traveling with their 3 children around Southern California performing at festivals, service clubs and special events.... including Disneyland. On this recording, 'A Good Afternoon', Nancy & Phil are joined by their grown son, Luke, on mandolin, fiddle & vocal harmonies. The songs are a mix of originals inspired by their family experiences and several of their favorite old standards. 'We love the pure acoustic sound and songs with a clear message and timeless appeal.' Relax & Enjoy! Review: Nancy & Phil 'A Good Afternoon' review by Jimi Yamagishi 'A good afternoon is the summer sun a-shinin'...sittin' on the porch...my sleepin' dog & me, takin' it easy...' Nancy & Phil evoke a simpler time, with the rich resonance of Nancy's upright bass complimenting Phil's fingerstyle guitar & homespun vocals. Their son Luke weaves his mandolin & fiddle thru the mix to complete the picture. Although a few standards such as 'Sunny side of the Street' & 'As Time goes By' are covered here, Nancy & Phil's original songs are the reason you really need to add this CD to your collection. Listening to the title cut is like stepping thru a time machine into a sepia-toned small town picture postcard place, & sets the tone for the rest of this collection of musical vignettes. 'Million Dollar Bill' is a heartwarming story of a simple man & the love he shares with his wife, come what may. 'Mama's Home' is a touching reflection of a mother's presence in our lives & homes, & all the good things mom represents. 'Winter Winds' marks the passage of time, and how a good relationship can remain strong, 'Because winter winds become summer breezes, & after the freeze, we'll be fine' Their closing song, 'An Hour left for Love', wraps up this collection perfectly with the realization that in this era of multitasking & trying to cram 26 hours in a day, at the end of the day, what still counts most is our relationships with those we hold most dear. 'A Good Afternoon' is a CD you'll want to take out on the back porch with a cool drink by yourself, at a time when you can savor every word, so you can experience the warm comfortable images Nancy & Phil paint with their unique palette of harmony & instrumental colors.
