Hey ROG,

I was just scouting through past pages in the forum when I discovered that I'd missed this song! Apologies for that. These pages seem to zoom through very quickly these days.

What additives do you have in your water supply in York? You always manage to create songs that excel in creativity and your vision for writing, performing, mix and arrangement always has a touch of the enjoyably mischievous about it. I don't know how you manage to maintain such consistency.

I found this very entertaining indeed.

All the best,

Noel, my friend, good to hear from you.

I always value your opinion and I'm really pleased that you liked this one.

It always surprises me that the Blues has such a following in France and this idea actually came to me whilst I was listening to some John Lee Hooker in a bar, though not in Paris I'm afraid, but in St.Lo - not quite as romantic so I relocated it!

Thanks for the kind words.

Regards, ROG.

I listened to this the other day and again today. It's just a wonderful song, performance and production.

Unique, refreshing, comical, serious, and best of all original.

Hi olemon.

Many thanks for listening and for the positive review.

After years of being forced to do things for commercial reasons, I enjoy being able to try something original, so your comments are greatly appreciated.

Great tune and vocals.
Excellent lyrics too.
Somehow this song made us think of Bob Dylan's Homesick Subterranean Blues (meant as a compliment :D)

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

Hey, many thanks for the listen.

Subterranean Homesick Blues? Yeah, I can live with that! Dylan has been one of my favourites since the Highway 61 Revisited album which I bought on vinyl and wore out. (I now have the CD)

Thanks for the kind review.
