Video: Haase takes on “I’ve Just Started Living”
Several years ago, I asked someone who would know—whether Ernie Haase or someone else I do not recall—whether the Cathedrals had ever staged “I’ve Just Started Living” with Haase at the tenor part. The answer was that they had, but only a few times, since Haase and the rest of the group thought it was best overall to leave it as Danny Funderburk’s song.
Well, one of those rare performances has been unearthed:
Nobody questions that Danny Funderburk owned the song, and I think everyone involved was happy to leave it remembered as his song. Still, this rendition isn’t bad at all, interesting as much for its rarity as for the fact that it’s actually a good rendition of the song on its own merits.
UPDATE (8/3/10): The Professor of Southern Gospel, Dean Adkins, unearthed and offers another performance here. Also making this worth watching is that both Mark Trammell and Scott Fowler were with the group at this point.
