Nicely done, ROG. The BIAB Blues tracks do make super instrumentals - like the Bluegrass ones... Excellent mix. A good listen. fj

Jon, Excellent. Very professional - like all your stuff has been. Your ukulele playing is really nice (and well recorded). Your vocals are superb - your "American" (as Tom said) is impeccable (amazing). Would love to hear you sing one in Italian, too - assuming you write in it as well... Is the fiddle an RT? Sounds like it done "custom" for the song... A great listen. floyd

While listening to this, I feel like getting a lift in Santa's sledge on the way to my family, watching falling snow and children making snowmen. Nice solo guitar. Merry Christmas, Dani Janne

This is perfect example of its genre, radio friendly straight from the top of the charts. Perfect arrangement and mix. The title of the song is really strong, containing both eternal longing and comforting wisdom. Janne

Very cool tune Mario. I did not hear this on the first pass in 2009. So glad you reposted this . Excellent tune. Loved the organ in the background. Guitar was excellent as well

I'll have to double check, Larry, but it seems that when I look at the Independence Pro folder it read (in Windows) 69 point something GB, so pretty close to 70 GB. Also, if you want to install on a second machine, just copy the downloaded Independence content over to the other machine, then run the installer and select the 3rd option (which is the content is already on your hard drive). Also, it looks like you can only authorize Spectralayers on one machine. I'm also having problems getting

A multi-track digital recorder would do the job, though the backing track does have to be rendered and loaded on to the recorder. Among the makers: Fostex, Zoom, Boss, and Tascam. $275 - $400+ (My next one will have an enhanced interfaceI hope.) Recorders Reviewed

This is a well written blues tune. The vocal is to die for. I enjoyed the dancing and the gymnastics that only could be delivered by an extraordinarily talented singer. The mix is spot on and the real standout is the killer bass line and tone. Who woulda thunk that a mando solo would work so well? Enjoyed the video and am glad to hear this one again, Tom

Torrey, I like this different side of you. The chord progression is interesting and fits the song structure well. Great vocals and guitars. I rarely find fault with any of your productions but I agree that it is over compressed and I was getting a pumping quality that I'm sure can be easily remedied. Really nice song.,Tom
