Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly

Kenny Rankin was a great singer gone to soon. First time I saw him perform on the tonight show Johnny Carson brought him out.

Of all the versions of Black Bird that have been recorded, Kenny Rankin's has become - by far - my most favorite. His voice is so rich and lyric. A terrific contribution .

I heartily agree with both of you ladies--Lind a and Anne. Kenny's repertoire are a longstanding favorites of mine. Never grow tired of his particular flair with songs. His arrangements are sublime.

I weep for Kenny....gon e from us too soon. He passed away from lung cancer June 8, 2009. God how I love his renditions of Blackbird, While My Guitar Gently Weeps and many more. His voice was so pure and soulful and his acoustic guitar playing easy on the ears. A friend and a fan for 11 years...my guitar gently weeps.

Few renderings of old Beatles' tunes are as satisfying as this one. Kenny's gentle voice and acoustic guitar pickin' in "Blackbird" from his Peaceful CD are gentle music to my ears!
