How Could I Do This, To You

A different version of this song was an award winning national #1 hit song in Canada in 1995. Here is my original demo.

How Could I Do This was a letter, like most of my songs, and this one made me cry while singing the lead vocal…


How Can I Do This – Written, performed, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by John Jones.

Be True To Yourself – Live in Burbank 2000

This was a Live Internet Broadcast from netthistv.com‘s studio, recorded March 29, 2000, of John Jones and the Minstrels, performing songs from the album, One Moment in Time

On that rainy night in Burbank, the Minstrels were, Richard Martinez (djembe), Sean Halley (guitar, vocal), and Christoph Bull (accordion, vocal). Steve Ferrone was expected to play percussion, but couldn’t find a parking spot, and missed the show!

Richard, Sean, and myself, had played a couple of the songs at the Troubador, a few months earlier. For this show we were joined by Christoph.

Big Thanks to Kevin and Rob Carmony for the video!

Here are direct links to the songs, skipping my comedic banter:
0:26 – Be True
5:32 – Mad About You
10:26 – Lead Me Along (huh?)
16:06 – One Moment in Time
21:45 – State of Mind
26:46 – Dear John

DEAR JOHN by John Jones

September 21st, 2017 § Comments Off on DEAR JOHN by John Jones § permalink

John Jones and Mick Fleetwood. Circa 1999. I didn’t make the video. Bless who ever did!

I had a moment, where I was totally shocked, that it had been almost 20 years since John Lennon had passed. So, I wrote and recorded this song.

Breakfast With the Beatles?

Where Am I?
