Kenny,

This is really good. One of my favorites from you. Smokin' guitar man. Consider me impressed.

What flavor of guitar is that??

A different side of Kenny! Cool song!! Has sort of a John Lennon Yer Blues vibe. Vocal comes across very emotive and sincere. And again, you've made everything sound very natural and "band-like" with a little help from you friend Brent. Very enjoyable!! Take care. Greg

Nice build up the band sounds really good, and supports the vocal well.
Good song.

"Sleep out in the pouring rain
I will suffer any pain
Just to get you back again
Face the odds and still come thru"

Wow. Kenny...I hope you don't truly hold that much pain...
But the fact that you can put that into a song is impressive.

A bunch of BIAB users tend to "stay in the box"... it's easy to note - yeah, sounds like BIAB (same stuff over and over). You are DEFINITELY NOT one of those. You use it as a tool to "get what you need" to express a song. Awesome stuff. Pick and choose. Mix it up... This is a GREAT sound. Original, unique. Kenny music. Awesome stuff. Great listen.

Man! I like that!... a lot...

(stuck in my head).

Thanks David for the kind words, the solos are all Brent this time, I like to play the solos on a lot of my stuff but tried out this Brent style and loved it right away.

Thanks Greg, I've been listening to and watching a lot of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers lately and they're so good live that I was drawn to wanting to create some kind of bluesy rock groove like the Heartbreakers. I take the Lennon reference as a compliment, things usually don't end up the way they start out anyway. When I added that funk organ to the mix I knew I had to make something out of that.

This is really good. You did a masterful job bringing all the elements together. The solo sounds like BM was in the studio. It fits in perfectly. Enjoyed this.

Between the organ, piano and those pained vocals (in the right way) I missed the rest of the arrangement.
I was focussed on those three elements.
I reckon you could strip it of the guitars and focus on the pain.

You are correct. Although the other could have been quite the 'Classical Gas' also.
