I actually wrote and recorded this quite a few years ago but I drag it out every year around this time and share it. This year I thought I would have some fun with BIB and I re-recorded it with the intention of making it 100% BIB but I couldn't help myself and added some background strings and a live guitar lead.

Happy Holidays to all of you and thanks for a wonderfull year of music and knowledge. The talent here is amazing.

Juking tune.... it has lots of good energy and lots to like about it.

On my cans it sounds a bit pushed....almost like it's over compressed.... or on the edge of distortion .... very slight not overtly noticeable.

Love the modulation and the demodulation of keys, not something you hear too much of these days.

Cool sounding guitar part.


Man .... you don't mind changing keys one bit.....

Nice job too on the lyrics....

All around good job.

Ya got me rocking rickey! And it's kind of late here in my neck of the woods, so that's saying something in itself.

Very enjoyable listen.

Later,

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. It really amazed me how I could fold this song into BIB with so little trouble. And to put it into a "out of the box" arrangement was really a nice suprise.
