The mix is top-notch. Listening in phones, everything is in the perfect space...each instrument standing out and fitting in.

Love the bridge. The trumpet works spectacularly!

A good rock write. Interesting, entertaining.

One of your best vocals! (I always enjoy your vocals) Terrific harmonies!

This is a great listen - I'm on my 3rd...

floyd


Floyd nailed it. I'm listening on computer speakers but the clarity of the mix still stands out. Your mixes are always very big and very live, and tight at the same time. I'm in awe!! Take care. Greg

She said she feels a Dire Straits and Travelling Wilbury groove and I agree. Perhaps odd to hear that in a punk song - maybe the timbre of your vocal.

Great write, playing (all of it) and production.

Oh yeah!!

Bud

Many thanks. The image of Janice dancing round the room will stay with me every time I play this track!
Cheers, ROG.

Outstanding in every way, killer job on the production too!

Hi Dave and many thanks for the listen and review. As I said before, quite happy with that connection!
Regards, ROG.

Hi Angelo.
Thanks for the nice comments. Yes, the whole idea was built around that riff, so I'm glad it worked for you.
Cheers, ROG.

Hello, ROG

Very British rock sound!
A little Mick jaguar.
Harmonies reminds me of some British group like the Hollies.
Very cool and tight.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I could hear some classic 'Queen' rock style in there.

Congratulations, well delivered.

Thanks, Trevor. Since our girl singers went off to university, I've had to do my own BVs. I actually enjoy the tracking-up but as I said, these took me up to a top "A" which was a bit of a challenge. Still, pleased you liked it. Thanks. ROG.

This is another great feel good rocker from you.
very cool, enjoyed!

Kenny

Thanks, Kenny. Yes, the "can't get no worse" was a deliberate nod towards the Beatles - I wondered if anyone would pick it up. Glad you liked Jeff Lynn's part in this!

Cars, Dire Straits, Queen, ELO, Lou Reed, Travelling Wilburys,
Must be doing something right!

Peter

Hi Peter and many thanks. Listening to Lou Reed in the early 70s greatly influenced my approach to music. It must still show a bit.

Great to hear you again!

bit nippy isn't it?

Alyn

Alyn, my old Welsh pal, many thanks for looking in. The high harmonies can indeed be dangerous! Anything over a top "A" shouldn't be undertaken without medical help on standby.
Hey, who wouldn't want Palmer's backing band?
About time for another offering from you my friend?

Hi ROG,

Sorry for being so late to the party!

Wow!!!! I'm sitting here listening, feet tapping... I'm even typing in time! LOL smile

This is outstanding.... your arrangement and your multiple performances are mind-boggling and I mean that in the sense that as I'm sitting trying to work out what you did, my brain is spinning around. I'm really impressed with what I'm hearing. I don't know how you did it, but the end result is mesmerising from start to finish.

All the best,
Noel

HI Shigeki. Thanks for the listen and review. The Hollies harmonies are legendary, so I'm very happy for that comment!

Hi Noel.
Late or not, I'm always pleased to get a review from you, especially when it's as good as that!
There's a lot of time invested in the little bits of ornamentation which come and go, so it's particularly pleasing that that you appreciated the arrangement.
Many thanks, ROG.
