Hi!

Can't recall hearing this one a couple of years ago. Sure did enjoy this, though! When I think of the blues, half a dozen names come to mind, but the first three are: Ray Charles, BB King and Janice Merritt.

Loved everything thing about this. Super listen! best to you both,

Alan

First, I am such a fan of lyric videos over any other kind of video. I'm sure I've mentioned that before; but I really like how you allow us to still create the song for yourselves. Thank you for that!

Now to address the pack of elephants in the room. Yes, one elephant would not have been sufficient. If you continue to post Janice singing this way, I can't guarantee no one is going to steal her away to sing anything and everything under the sun. Have you considered maybe having her hit a wrong note here or there? Maybe use bad intonation on occasion? Just suggestions of course. I have a feeling she may not even be capable of such things.

In all seriousness, tell me/teach me your methods for melody embellishment. Is it both of you playing off of each other? I'm ALWAYS impressed with anyone that can take a 1 syllable word and craft it into multi-syllables effortlessly; YET have it sound like your aren't just doing it to do it. It's just great and smart melody creation. My God, it's awesome!

Your voice squeezes out so much "you-done-me-wrongness" from the lyrics that they drip onto the floor and run down the cracks in the wood.

The combination of Real Tracks was perfect for setting the mood of the song, 'specially that resonant, tip-toeing acoustic bass, which made the "soul stealer" sound like a cat burglar on a jazz tip.

And who would'a thought that a mandolin performance could swing so sweet n' low! That's some inspired musical "casting" that works.

I could drink songs like this from a cup all day!

Thanks Loren for all of the above comments you made. We much appreciate them. Thanks for mentioning the bass -- I always spend extra time trying to get an acoustic bass to sit nicely in a mix. Guess it comes from having played one for so long!

Hey, we LOVE your new song! Will comment soon.

A delicious slow blues.

Good blues write. Really like the AAAB rhyme scheme - and some cool rhymes they are...

The band is great. Impeccable mix.

A vocal as expressive as they come (no surprise there).

A delightful listen. The video images are nice - love the hues...

Hello, Janice & Bud

It is a very legitimate blues.
Very orthodox!
The vocal of Janice is perfect for such music.
Her vocal accompanied with the piano echoed to the bottom of my heart.
Even if I use blues chord progression I can never write blues.
I really admire your works.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Top effort, J & B Team.

Janice is her usual cool self, I've mentioned many times how much I dig her phrasing and tone.

Backtrack sounds great, love the piano especially.

And killer job on the mix, Bud! Just about perfect to these ears.


Thanks Dave for nice remarks. We are big fans of your productions and that makes your remarks all the more meaningful.
