Full Song List

Miracle Records was established to provide high quality, full-sound music for use by square dance callers, including several releases with background vocals, etc. To date, more than 85 different label recordings have been made available.  New square dance music is added to the label’s catalog throughout the calendar year.

A current listing of all releases on the Miracle Records label is provided below and elsewhere on this web site. Feel free to listen to a sample of any of our square dance releases by simply clicking on the buttons provided adjacent to each song. Should you decide to purchase one or more of the releases at the current going price of $7.00 per song, simply “click” on the “Buy Now” button or physically mail your payment to:

Salem, Illinois 62881-4107

Upon receipt of your payment, I will quickly issue authorization for the downloading of MP3 music file(s) complete with a cue sheet for singing calls containing the lyrics and figures used by our staff and guest artists. By special request, we can also provide our music on a CD for your personal use. However, the provision of our music on a CD also requires the payment of a $4.00 minimal shipping and handling fee (potentially more for overseas mailings).

If you have questions, please contact Fred Walker at thewalkergp@yahoo.com or contact me by telephone at (618) 548-0125. In addition, all of the Miracle Record singing call and/or patter releases can also be purchased through our associates at dosado.com in Houston, Texas.

    The samples are not long enough to appreciate the music.

      Jim: I have just authorized our web site consultant to “lengthen” the vocal tracts for all singing calls on our new web site. Both the instrumental and vocal tracts should now extend through the middle break of each release. This might take us a week or so to accomplish.

        To those of you that indicated that the song samples need to be “longer”, as of March 4, 2014 they have been lengthened through the middle break.

    Good stuff! Have you considered offering the performance (instrumental) tracks both with and without harmonies? Sometimes I call solo and would want the harmonies in the background, sometimes I’m with other callers and we do our own harmonies.

      Mike: While such options would be nice, they tend to drive up the final cost of the song and as a result, I have chosen to release the song in only one way. I wish that I had more economic flexibility but I don’t. As the producer, if I feel that background harmony is an essential part of what makes the song “appealing” then I include it. Fred.

        I like to sing in my own style and use singing tracks for patter so, even though I often prefer your arrangementI end up buying the songs elsewhere where they are available without harmonies.

          Thank you for sharing your comments on our musical releases from Miracle Records. I wish that I had the unlimited time and money to produce multiple versions of each singing call that we release so that I could please more customers. However, the reality is that I don’t have either and today’s shrinking market (i.e., callers like you who buy such music) is so limited that I can barely get even one version to market at a cost that gives me a chance to break even. Sorry.

    Fred,
    I love this style of music!! I also like the background vocals, which others might not appreciate as much but I feel it adds to the overall appeal of the song, especially in this era of music where “group” performance was so prevalent! Thanks and keep it up!! ~Kevin Cozad

      Kevin: Thank you for your kind remarks about the releases we offer on Miracle Records. We seem to be “birds of a feather” that appreciates the “oldies” from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s that our dancers can relate to. I particularly appreciate your comment about the inclusion of background harmony on some (but not all) of our songs. In my opinion, sometimes the background vocals are an integral part of what makes the song “attractive” to begin with. My judgment (regarding the use of background vocals) is also undoubtedly influenced by the fact that I sang in a gospel quartet for a number of years before trying square dance calling.

    I have been making my own music and after hearing your arrangements and backup vocals, I will now have more time to put into the choreography, timing and showmanship. Thank You.

      Thank you for your kind comments regarding our square dance releases from Miracle Records. I’m glad to hear that it is your intent to continue to use our square dance instrumental arrangements, and in many instances background vocals, so that you can focus your future calling efforts on interesting choreography, improved timing for smooth non-stop dancing and a little showmanship that may separate you (in the opinion of dancers) from other entertainers that they dance to. In selecting music for production as a square dancing singing call we try to maintain the integrity of the original music. If we have to speed it up or slow it down too much, we will likely pass on the song. Similarly, if what makes the song attractive to us to begin with includes signature background vocals, then we include them in our release knowing that some callers will be concerned by the presence of such vocals. Thanks again for your generous comments. Fred Walker, Producer – Miracle Records.

    Since I will use my music for both patter and singing calls, solo or harmonizing with others, I wish your tracks featured a good instrumental melody line without background vocals. I would buy more if they did.

    Hi Fred

    Have always loved your music and production. One of your releases “Let It Be Me – MIR 117” has been a favourite of a fellow caller (Jim Buckingham) and myself and we frequently call it as a duet at large events. It always gets a rousing applause as it has such a wide appeal and allows us to present real showmanship, particularly the end tag. Great work and thanks. Have just purchased Woman, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, and Baby I need Your Lovin. Looking forward to practicing these 50 times in the shower and then finally presenting them to my club and other dancers.

    Cheers

    Greg

      Thank you for your kind comments.

      The credit for MIR 117 – “Let It Be Me” (by the Everly Brothers) must go to my wife Nancy. I sang this song to her as part of our wedding vows nearly 34 years ago. Some time ago a very musically talented good friend of ours (Bob Lang from the Indianapolis, Indiana area) approached Nancy and asked if he would compose some music … did she think I would use it for square dancing purposes. She said she was sure that I would and quickly added, “and I have just the song in mind for you to work on.” This is how “Let It Be Me” came to be.

      Good luck with your three new Miracle Records songs …

    Fred, i would just like to say that the music you put forth not only let’s us dance it also let’s us go back to days gone by that filled our hearts with joy. Thank you so much and keep them coming, i love this era of music.

      Thanks for your kind comments about the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music that I most commonly choose to record on Miracle Records. Like you, and several others that have indicated similar comments, I too enjoy taking an occasional journey back in time to the “good ‘ol days” and the classic music that we grew up with. Given the average age of our dancers today, I believe that the “oldies” represent “their music” as well. As long as you and others keep showing your love for this type of music by purchasing new releases, I will attempt to “keep them coming”.

      You are correct that our web site notes that MIR 140 – You’ve Got a Friend in Me (by Randy Newman) was scheduled to be available by now (i.e., January 2016), but has been delayed. I can tell you that the basic instrumental track is complete and we are pursuing plans to lay down the lead vocal track in the near future. Thanks for your observation.

      First of all, thank you for your kind comments and being a frequent customer of the Miracle Records website. Once I have identified a song (usually from the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s) that “appeals” to me personally, we then have to determine if the integrity of the music can be preserved (tempo, pitch, 64 beat groupings, and instrumentation and possible background vocals, etc.) when the song is arranged for square dancing. In some cases, I have to decide to scrap pans to proceed, but in other instances, we do the best we can to make the music as close to the original as possible. Thanks again, for your kind comments.

      Larry

      For a fee of $7.00 you are purchasing music in an MP3 digital format. Basically you are purchasing the music files associated with a single song or piece of music. The web site sends you multiple files (e.g., an instrumental file and reference vocal file) for the same singing call, but only one file for a patter release. I hope this answers your question.

      Thanks you for your kind comments regarding both the caller seminar and dance for the Oklahoma Callers and Teachers Association. Since my wife Nancy and I have decided to cease our calling at the end of 2016, your comments are especially appreciated by us. Also thanks you for your order on miraclerecords.co. As you may know we now have four singing calls specifically prepared for and called by female callers. Give them a listen.

      Thank you for your kind comments regarding the high quality square dancing music offered on the Miracle Records website. Anytime a customer orders a “singing call” from our website, they are e-mailed an authorization to download both the instrumental and reference vocal MP3 music files for the song and the cue sheet. Naturally, there is no reference vocal track nor cue sheet provided in connection with the “patter” releases offered via the Miracle Records website. I hope this addresses your comment.
