Love it, great song, well sung, everything sitting where its supposed to be a perfect production all round.

great video too, I notice that comments are disabled though one could only have good things to say about this production.

Well done to everyone involved.

Hi Janice & Bud (and Floyd),

fun and fresh. I remember the original.
Very nicely arranged. I like the fiddle.
Janice lively as always and good support
by Floyd. (Where is he by the way?)
Bud did a great job on the video.
I enjoyed it a lot.

Unlike the title, I'd say this is "Fun Central"!! Really well put together. Clean, tight, and creative writing and production. Vocals are great (Janice and FJ nailed it). From the credits, it looks like it was painstaking (lots of instruments, and multiple generations) but the result was worth it-not a note out of place. Great job!! Take care. Greg

Hi Janice, Bud and Floyd,

We never heard the first version, so we cannot compare.
We can only say this though: another solid production, nice video!
The colors fit the mood of the song.
Well sung Janice and the same goes for floyd.

Thanks Greg! It was a bit tedious but I really wanted the solos to transition well into the vocal. Even more tedious was finding public domain images that seemed to fit the lyric. All in all....tedious but counterintuitively also fun.

Cool tune..... I think I recall this. It's always fun to revamp some of the old stuff after you have learned a few new things about this hobby. I'm always tempted to do that on some as I listen to the stuff I have done years ago......

Nice job on the re-do.

One of my favorites of yours so far. Everything in place and a superb mix. A little bluesy and a bit of western swing vibe together in a great production, arrangement and performance.

I had a lot of fun listening to this one and will certainly be going back for more.

Hello Janice and Bud,

The good old country !
Who has played the guitar solo ? is it a Real track ?

It reminds me of a very good movie about country, Nashville Blues, with River Phoenix
bravo for the video

Hey y'all, nice that you liked it and thanks for commenting on the video. It get a bit tedious trying to find public domain images that fit the lyric and are large enough to be cropped to 16:9. That's the reason I didn't use more smile

Thanks Herb. Man, I can listen to something I did 3 months ago and want to redo it. But I'm still on the steep side of the learning curve. Glad you liked it.

Everything that I wanted to say already has been said.

Like I have said a number of times you guys should be on the radio! What you, Floyd and a number of others do is definitely much better than what is on the radio today ---period.

Thanks again, guys, for letting me be a small part of this.

I like it more every time I hear it. Some very cool lines in the writing. The new mix is great.

Janice "She Could Sing The Phonebook" Merritt doing her usual. smile

Bud showing his new-found talent for lyric videos. Exceptional. Really.

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
