A barebones R&B-Soul instrumental. It's a musical bed written for a local group of wives who meet for a dance workout session one day a week. They asked me if I could write some original music for them - they were getting tired of the same 12 or 15 songs. This is my first offering. The music is a simple bed, thus the name (nothing to do with trying to repeal or replace anything!)

The horns are a little quiet in the first verse but are more prominent thereafter - kind of a mild build, I guess you could say.

I used the Belair style and changed out a few instruments and added a couple others.

Di's health has kept me away for a couple of weeks. She's doing a little better, so I'm trying to catch up. Will be over to listen as many of the songs posted recently as I can.

"nothing to do with trying to repeal or replace anything!" HaHaHa!

The wives should like that and get a good workout also.

Like Deryk said "infectious groove" and that is most ideal for workout music.

Well done and great to hear the good news about Di

Fun song!

Hey ... thanks so much! I'll be giving them a CD with about 10 tunes on it in the next couple of weeks. They said they liked what they heard with this one. I have three written so far. Most of them have a late 60s and 70s vibe. Kind of a scaled down James Brown backing tracks. Thanks so much!

Alan
