Track Listing

"Take Me Out to the Ball Game": Originally written in 1903 by a composer who had never attended a baseball game, Singletary's version of this classic soars into the electric stratosphere. Recorded live at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, California, the spirit of Summer is alive and well on this recording.

"The Babe" - A solo that musically traces the rise and fall of George Herman "Babe" Ruth, whom many still regard as the "Home Run King."

"Boys of Summer" - The solo encompasses jazz, rock, and other pathways that have not yet been defined in descriptive form. Illinois Entertainer's David C. Eldredge calls this track, "the most interesting cut" on the CD. Not to be confused with the Don Henley standard of the same name...

"Suzuki" - An aidio paean to future Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki - an international baseball legend. The solos in this cut emphasize Eastern scales, and the motifs are performed on B-bender country and western guitar.

"Man of Steal" - Five minutes worth of pure guitar heaven on a cut inspired by the blazing trails left behind by Rickey Henderson, one of the most prolific base stealers in the history of MLB. Guitars blaze just like Rickey would have hurtled himself around the diamond's small white projectiles in the 1980s.
