“Virginia This Morning”
“Tales of love, loss, loneliness and liquor, Paulo Franco's songs echo the themes of growing up and getting wiser. But behind the making of his first solo CD, By The the Light of a Paper Moon, is the story of a singer-songwriter staying true to his childhood ambitions, with a little help from his friends. Captivated by music at a young age, six year old Franco's fortuitous selection of the Beatle's Let it Be album may have been a key turning point for the budding musician. "I just saw these four guys. They had long hair, and they looked really cool," he recalls. But while still in the store, Franco found himself coveting the record his sister decided to buy - a Partridge Family album. At his father's insistence, he stuck to his original choice. "So my sister went home with the Partridge Family album, and God only knows where that is now," says Franco. "But I still have my original copy of Let it Be . . . I've had it for 42 years."”
