Hi guys,thanks for the time to listen and the kind comments. This is an earlier tune in the "duet" series and I thought to post it in between the more mellow sounds so I wouldn't bore you guys.

Thanks again for the comments.
Floyd, no, the ketron is actually driving the horns. The guitar lead is an RT. I probably recorded that after I recorded one of the other RTs, because I ran out of tracks (in BIB) and didn't noted what it was, that's why is not shown in my stats. Sorry about that.
