LOVED IT

I really liked your choice of RTs. Your vocals were spot on and the train effect put it over the top IMHO

Two thumbs up

Hi Rob, You seem to have a real knack for picking the right tracks for good country stuff. I enjoyed the listen! Also listened to "Didn't Notice Me" while I was there and I couldn't help but think that Johhny Cash would have had a ball with that one. I seemed to hear him in every line.

Good job!

Val

Rob,

Liked as mentioned above, the train really added a nice important part of your song.
Especially liked you doing the background vocal support. Added
a lot to your song.

Your a very creative person, with a lot of talent!

Absolute Newbie here - got BIAB today, but have have spent the last few days lurking and listening here. All I can say, is that if this song - Last Train - is an example of what can be achieved with BIAB, then I've spent my money well. An excellent production all round. Well done.
