Beautiful!

Your voices are blended so nicely on this. The instrumentation is terrific - and very well mixed. (Love the crisp piano)

Rob, your vocal on this is a real stand out!

Very well done.

Hi Greg,

Thank you!
Yes we are usually not in the habit of covering songs.
However, since this was a "public domain song" we thought we'd give it a try (Rob has been a fan of DonMclean's version for ages).

Hi J&B,

Thank you!
We already thought you guys might like this, since you have posted public domain covers before.
Yes, public domain can be a wealth of material.

Hi Anne-Marie and Rob,

Absolutely stunning work!

Rob's singing = perfect; Anne-Marie's harmonies = perfect; arrangement = perfect; production = prefect; video presentation = perfect.

I really enjoyed listening to this.

All the best,
Noel

Wow.... very nice.

I liked the feel to this song....and the story was excellent.

Recording, tracks, production was top quality all the way.

This song took me on a ride....which is what a song should do. It pulled me into the lyrics and the story and put me in the middle of the action..... great job on this.


My only nit.... if you could call it that... was the ending....The ending IMHO, really needs a 4 bar musical outtro. Tag it musically.... and then slow the final measure. But, that, my friends, is how I would have ended it. The way you did end it works fine....

Another great job.... I didn't watch the video initially.... I came back here and browsed the comments as it was playing.... then about halfway through, I popped over to the video and realized I needed to watch this from the start, so I restarted the video.....

As usual... great track, excellent vocals. As others mentioned, the piano was particularly nice, especially how it lightly overlapped the vocals, but didn't intrude.

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

Receder, Floyd, Tommy, Noel, Josie, David and Herb...
thanks you for all your kind words.

Floyd: yes.. although a midi, this is one of our favourite piano's

Herb: yes, the end is somewhat abrupt. Next time we'll add some extra bars.

Rob and Anne-Marie
