Lovely mix and full of superb lines and touches.

Floyd,
I could quote all the praise of listeners so far- Peter sums up my thoughts well.
This is the best song I`ve heard about "bums" ( we called them tramps in the UK) since Ralph McTell`s Streets of London.
Going back for another liten to all that streetwise wisdom!

Robert


Thanks, Robert. Wasn't familiar with Ralph McTell, so went and had a listen... the internet is such an amazing thing...

There is a deep taste of the folk song in this tune.
I like your rock vocals very much, but this song is also very nice.
How to use RealTracks is really wonderful.
Particularly Mandolin, Soloist CountryAndy Ev 165.
And as always, your vocals are noteworthy.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi


Shigeki Adachi - Thanks you very much...

Great job. Wow.


Thanks, Jon. Appreciate that. Just listened to your latest - a Wow right back at ya....

Never noticed the lack of a chorus as the arrangement is perfect for the story and supporting imagery.

The build and variety of instruments is extremely effective and indicative of a heckuva mix.

The vocal was perfect and full of, as Janice said, “richness.”

Many singer songwriters would be delighted to have one or two tunes like this in their repertoire but, man, you are a cornucopia!

J&B

PS We used to talk to an elderly lady, Pearl, who much reminds us of your story.


smile - I never thought of this as one of my "Prine inspired songs" (I've had many)... more a Jerry Jeff Walker thing, I think... Thanks for the nice review...

And the vocal is exactly the right tone for the story. In the LP days, this would be a first or last song on one side of the Best of Floyd Jane. Awesome Floyd!!! Take care. Greg


Greg - thank you for such an awesome review. Warmed my heart... smile

Good song by every measure.

Charlie


Thanks, Charlie. I certainly appreciate that you remember Wrong Mailbox...

Floyd Jingles

by David Snyder

V1

I knew a man his name was Floyd
he played the blues
in worn out shoes
cranky guy, hit writing man
from Florida
he paid his dues

and when he wrote a song
when he wrote a song
it just made me cry


CH

Oh those Floyd Jingles
Oh those Floyd Jingles
Oh those Floyd Jingles...

cry....

Words and Music 2017 by David "Jeff" Snyder

Can you hear it man???

Top quality as usual!

Thanks, Rob. I think I may have had that LP - though it was one of those that I played a few times then forgot... went and listened to the song on Youtube - seems familiar, so I must have known it at some point...

I used to think you were but one person, however, as you (plural) have demonstrated, that is clearly NOT the case! It simply wouldn't be possible.

Sorry to point out the obvious.
