I try my best not to get into other people’s business. But if you are a true friend sometimes you have no choice and then you might end up with the blues. All comments / suggestions welcome. Tom

I Thought You Ought To Know


Well I know that you’re in love with her

I know you’ve made some plans

But i thought I ought to tell you this

Man to man

I saw her at the club last night she was with some other guy

I think that she’s back on that stuff she looked a little high

I guess that’s just the way it goes

And I thought you oughta know


I warned you all about her i said she’d bring you down

She’s got a reputation as trouble in this town

I hate to see this happen but it’s a cold hard fact

It just won’t work out for you she can’t clean up her act

I guess that’s just the way it goes
And I thought you oughta know ©2015 Thomas Adams

Hey Tommy.
Don't normally like long intro's but this was a great lead in to your excellent vocal.
Great blues feel.
You nailed it.
Thanks for sharing.
Rob

Hi Tommy,

that's blues at its best! Your voice and guitar make it special.
I like that live ambience you mixed in.
You chose a very nice sax and piano.
An over all enjoyable listen (not only one)!

Great track, Tommy.

Liked everything, but particularly your guitar work - superb blues playing.

A nice live feel to the band, enhanced by the audience participation.

Just very professional all round.

'Bout as good as it get.

Dang cool intro. Just the right touch of everything. Should be a BIAB commercial... "Is it real.. or is it RealTracks?..."

Excellent write. A blues song with a story....Nice.

Good vocal. This fits you well.. I really like that reverb on ya...

Guitar = Tasty, tasty, tasty. Dripping with feel... maybe my favorite of your leads... S W E E E E E T!!!

The mix is IMPECCABLE.

'Bout as good as it get. I thought you ought to know....

Tommy,

Outstanding write and recording!

The crowd sound effects sold me on the idea that you had recorded "I Thought You Ought To Know" live at a club even though I knew better from reading your notes prior to listening. The illusion worked until the end of the sax solo. The crowd noise begins and ends too abruptly after the solo.

Herb, I played many years in a country band and I insisted that we mix in some blues. The hard core country guys were totally against it at first, but in the end I won them over. Hope I can do the same here. Thanks for the kind words. Tom

Guenter, As I was mixing, I kept thinking it sounded like something you would hear in a small club. So I tried to find some crowd noise to fill it out. Thanks, Tom
