Even though the song stopped playing a few minutes ago, in my mind, I can still clearly hear Janice's sublime vocals and floyd weaving his way around them with the all skill of a gold-medal guitarist. Music doesn't get much (if any) better than this. For what it's worth, the arrangement is a perfect showcase for Janice's and floyd's talents.

I can't sign-off without commenting on the songwriting, too. It's top-notch all the way; excellent melody, excellent lyrics. I'm with Alyn in that I also looked at the words before listening and thought, "What a great rhyme; ridge and lineage!" Then, when "heritage" came along, I was pleasantly surprised and thought, "Wow! Another great rhyme. I think I like this one is better!"

Rob and Anne-Marie have already commented on this, and I agree. The simile, "The heat's been pressin' me down like God's own hand" is outstanding, incredibly visual.

I also really liked the way you took the traditional blues framework for the lyrics and tweaked it so that it became your own format but still recognisably a blues format. So, instead of line two of a verse being an exact repetition of line one, it was only a partial repetition at the back-end of the line two; very creative and it worked very effectively.

Alright! It's back for another listen! So much talent in so few people!

All the best,
Noel


Having you compliment both our rhyme structure and writing means a lot Noel. We know you are very knowledable about that. BTW, floyd mentioned to me last year that opening up the second line a bit in our 12 bar blues tunes might be a good idea!

I'm glad the simile worked for you. It came to me during a strenuous mountain bike ride in dark woods on a hot humid day. Thanks again!!

First thing... I want to thank Janice and Bud for letting me be a part of this.

Absolutely Love the writing in this song. There is SO much detail and imagery and history in 4 very short verses. It is an incredible write. With the perfect melody to carry it.

The vocal is AS GOOD AS IT GETS. Period. NO ONE could do this better. Period.

The production is superb. The fullness of sound from drums, bass, rhythm guitar and vocal is truly amazing. "Air" is not a visual aspect of music, it is sonic. Ears, not eyes. There is an incredible amount of air in this. It is a pure pleasure to listen to...

I am humbled that J&B would use my guitar track in this (I'm just filling in while Tom is on vacation...). I originally did this for practice - to see if I could record a lead guitar that might fit in a mix. Never done this before. First real lead I've ever done.

Awesome in every way, guys (do more of this!!!)

floyd

That said, I also totally agree with what Herb said about the processing on the mix. It has that noticeably over compressed sound (which I have certainly done - so I'm not throwing stones at you in any way shape or form).

To me, Janice's vocal and the music create a dark blues mood strong enough to not need to be processed/compressed as hot as a pop song. It's easy to get all caught up in the loudness thing and over do it. JMHO.

Overall great job.

Josie


Thank you very much Josie. Floyd did a heckuva job - or as he put it "filling in for Tom while he's on vacation." As I mentioned to Herb I still think any issues of over compression are SC artifacts. Floyd and I have exchanged the file many times w/o hearing this.....but we are not exchanging them via SC. I almost quit using SC a few months back when suddenly ALL our tunes there sounded squashed. We're on vacation but when I get home I'll make a .wav file available on DropBox for anybody who might care to hear it as it came out of Logic Pro X.

Thanks again for the kind remarks,

Bud

I am a big blues fan and this is as good as it gets!

All of the accolades that I was going to say already have been said.

I bet that if you sent this in to Alligator records they would sign you immediately. This is as good as any artist they have and they have some top blues people over there.

This is a keeper for sure!

PS - if you put out a blues CD please let me know ASAP!

It occurred to me that I ought to acknowledge mention of my guitar part - who knows if I'll ever do that again...

(Keeping in mind that this is the Janice & Bud show and they deserve accolades galour...)

I want to start by saying that your title would make a good name for a Mall store that sells skinny jeans to high school girls. wink

I'll continue by echoing the positive comments on everything from the clever lyrics to Floyd's unexpected but awesome blues guitar playing.

But what I really want to know is whether you had a specific application in mind for which you crafted these verbal images. The use of biblical terms like Jerusalem and God's hand... especially when considered in light of the other points you made about tombstones, lack of green leaves, family lineage, blood feuds and murder... all these things stirred associations in my mind of the generational conflict in Palestine.

It wasn't until the last stanza when you mentioned a trailer and rows too long to hoe that I thought of the poor deep south rural bible belt, which I suppose is your intended application for the song.

I feel like there's more that you didn't say, and I want to hear all of it. wink

Hey Pat, I parsed out your comments in order to better respond.

“I want to start by saying that your title would make a good name for a Mall store that sells skinny jeans to high school girls.”

Now I gotta carry that image around! Janice and I are mountain bikers and we have a trail on our property that drops down from a low ridge to some dark bottom land. Around here bottom land was desired by Native Americans and settlers as it is rich but with a creek nearby this time of year it is incredibly hot and humid, i.e., “dank.” A few weeks ago when Janice and I were on a hard training ride through there I commented that I was suffocating in the bottom land. Voila, something that might stimulate my relatively rare songwriting.

“I'll continue by echoing the positive comments on everything from the clever lyrics to Floyd's unexpected but awesome blues guitar playing.”

Thank you and I’m sure fj will be pleased with that!

“But what I really want to know is whether you had a specific application in mind for which you crafted these verbal images. The use of biblical terms like Jerusalem and God's hand... especially when considered in light of the other points you made about tombstones, lack of green leaves, family lineage, blood feuds and murder... all these things stirred associations in my mind of the generational conflict in Palestine.”

I was thinking of oppression in general and how many millions cannot escape from it. The imagery just comes from my life’s experiences. Jerusalem Ridge is the title of my favorite bluegrass fiddle instrumental. It’s up tempo but ethereal and a bit spooky in melody. The sunken graves and the field stone — Janice and I are history nuts and we ramble around the countryside a lot and hike a lot. We often find old cemeteries where the graves have sunken in and they are marked, if at all, with flat field stones.
The heritage/lineage and the blood feuds were to reinforce the oppressive conditions in which the song’s subject was living. It brought to my mind images of worldwide conflicts and strife and generational/cultural/religious/tribal issues, etc.

“It wasn't until the last stanza when you mentioned a trailer and rows too long to hoe that I thought of the poor deep south rural bible belt, which I suppose is your intended application for the song.”

Yes, Appalachia would be a good fit metaphorically. The last verse can speak to how in America in many, but certainly not all, situations you do have an option of leaving. “Stick out a thumb.” It may not be a great option but you likely will not die for trying it.

“I feel like there's more that you didn't say, and I want to hear all of it. ;)”

That’s the best I can do! I genuinely enjoyed reading your thoughts. I know I tend toward more vague “connect the dots” lyrics and it is humbling to think that someone would pay that much attention to them..thank you very much.

J&B

J&B,

Thanks for taking time to offer a meaty reply. That kind of communication is highly valued and rarely found in online communities. I appreciate the level of commitment each of you bring to this community, in multiple ways. You participate in the music, and in the encouragement and in the human dialog. You are a big part of the reason why I check in every day to see what's new. Thank you very much for being value-adders.

Hi Guys!

Been AWOl from the boards for a few weeks ... serious health issues and family member with cancer plus a deadline for the two novels I am writing. I'm also putting together a website. Okay, done whining and making excuses ............

Terrific song and performance. Janice's voice always shines ... more proof here. And Floyd on lead guitar .. I may have to think about selling my Tele! I'm not sure I can withstand the competition!

What's not to like about this? Well, just one thing ... it came to an end! Kudos to all involved ... great stuff!

Alan
