AM Radio Tribute Band - Ain't No Mountain High Enough, 2-1-19

There's a great isolated recording of the piano and celeste from the Funk Brothers backing track of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." It's from this isolated recording that I learned how to play my parts in this song. I just love playing this song live. I just zone out and play those parts and let the singers do their singing; wait, no, I do sing an additional harmony during the chorus, totally unnecessarily.

What's kind of funny is that I learned Amy Winehouse's "Tears Dry on Their Own" for Su Teears's Back to Amy tribute project long before we added "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to the AM Radio Tribute Band repertoire. I didn't even know Amy was using the backing track from a popular song from the late '60s because I really wasn't familiar with that popular song!
