Hi Dean,

I remember this song from playing it on stage.
You did a great job on the arrangement. Cool bass and
guitar. And you got a good singer here.
Not to forget Lance.

My word, this is Mighty!
Great singing for sure but a superb combination of 3 midi Styles and RTs - what a lot of work and what a great result.
Really enjoyed this, guys. Full Marks.

Very cool arrangement. Love the way the bass carries the song. Wonderful example of what can be done with BIAB RT's, midi, and your playing -- not to forget the fine vocals. Fun listen.

Thank you Floyd,

Yeh, Martin really powers the thing along. Although the backup group ain't bad either.

Very glad you liked it.

Lance ...uh, I mean, Dean

Noel,

That's an incredibly kind reply. Let me tell you, working with two symphony orchestras plus a chamber ensemble, a special track just for contrabass and tympani, a rock band, three percussionists, ... it goes on ... well, it wasn't what you'd call a walk in the park. I deserve a pat on the back just for the effort!

Dean

Hi Dean,

Pretty much all been said. Very nice arrangement. Great vocals, and your instrumentation is stellar as always. (By the way, I'm pretty sure there is medication available to treat your multiple personalities.) smile
