I always love what you do with your chord structures and key changes. Everything sounds great and the sax is lovely.

Wonderfully written, sung, and mixed!

OK, great song, yes, classic, RnAm, yes, extremely well mixed yes, of course BUT..

I have a much more important and urgent question to ask that I need a fairly immediately answer to Rob.

The awesome guitar effects you are using at the beginning sound very similar to Paul Simon's great intro on Father and Daughter. I have to know your effects chain dude. Whatcha doin' there man.

smile

Immediate response requested if that is not too much pressure.

Okay, we're gonna wrap this one up.
Thanks to everyone who commented so positively on our song!

David (sorry I didn't respond earlier), I used the following plug-ins on the guitar in the intro:
Classic compressor and Classic Delay (Short delay time) both from Kjaerhus Audio (free plug-ins). I also used a chorus ( don't remember quite which one, probably was the built in one from Cubase).
Finally we did a remaster on this one (the song is quite old) with Ozone 7.
Hope this helps?

Rob

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie

What a fabulous song! Took us back to about 1988, or thereabouts. Fabulous arrangement and your vocal shines! The sax was a real treat - fit perfectly. It's as though you personally hired a sax player to come in just for this song.

The percussions really add to the mix. This is our favorite from you guys so far. We totally loved it!

Wishing you both well.

Thanks guys for this very positive comment.
We were kind of lucky with the saxophone solo, which is actually a combination of two different solos merged together.
The program did a marvelous job here ;-)

Early production, late production and all between -- you do have a signature sound but never formulaic. Janice and I had watched the video last week and we both noted the relative rarity that you use still shots. They were very effective indeed and given your mastery with video clips it comes as no surprise.

The vocal, composition, mix and the sax are all excellent. It sounds tremendous on our monitors.

Old or new -- congrats on a great tune!

Hello Rob and Anne Marie,
I am totally surprised that I am not hearing your work every time I go into A movie theater. This is top of the line stuff. Vocals are awesome!
