April 30th, 2020. Mimi Baez Fariña (1945-2001), singer, songwriter, peace activist, would’ve turned 75 today.
Wondered what it was like to be Joan Baez‘ little sister: also passionate for her music, but always coming in second; finally fairly fed up with music business.
Dedicated this song to her in August 2012. Recorded only this single take today. (Mixed up some chords in the end, but never mind.)
For The Rest Of My Life ::: lyrics & music by Bernhard Krisper
May 2nd, 2020. Did a second take of the song. More melodica.
