Song Preserved

Published May 20, 2016, issue of May 19, 2016.

We have just received word that the late, magnificent Blossom Dearie’s recording of “It’s Alright to be Afraid,” written by Arthur Hamilton, Lynne Jackson and me, will be re-released.

The song became attached to the tragedy of the Twin Towers and made its way around the world far beyond our expectations. In any case, we hope you agree that it is a fine, moving song which deserves to be heard.

Here is the link.

Please feel free to pass it along. We are delighted that this re-release will help this special song to live.

Mike Palter, Manchester by the Sea
