Monday Music: Moon River (Eric Clapton & Jeff Beck)
There is no archetypal image quite like a river. "Moon River," music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Johnny Mercer, taps in beautifully to that archetype. The song was written in 1960 to be sung by Audrey Hepburn in the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. Andy Williams' recording of the song put him on the map as one of the last great crooners. A host of other singers have recorded it.
Here we have the guitar work of Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck to help the song sail further on.
