I like the song all the way around. It seemed confident and laid back, but NEVER even remotely boring. That was GREAT!

Thank you. BIAB has done a great job with these Realtracks and I was happy to put them to use.

Lawrence,

This is fantastic. Floyd mentioned that it sounded like band that had been playing together for years. It's so true. What I heard was not BIAB at all. To me, the audio journey was a group of elite musicians making sophisticated music: jazz meets blues meets rock meets funk. The arrangement, the musical interplay, the song and your singing were all bursting with confidence and competence.

Totally enjoyed it.

All the best,
Noel

Lawrence, I love the opening. Great vocal as usual. I might have put a little reverb or delay on the sax but other than that the mix sounds super. Fantastic chord progression and arrangement. Really cool and a great listen. Tom

Noel, how much fun we are having with BIAB? What a privilege it is to be able to arrange a song so easily and have it sound so professional and be able to share it with other people. Just a joy all around! And thank you for the kind words.

Thank you Tom. The intro was fun to write. And I am constantly remixing (thanks to soundcloud allowing "replace file") so I will play around with the Fx on the sax.

Hi Lawrence,

We thought the intro/solo parts were kind of too busy for our taste.
But, you very successfully managed to emulate that Steely Dan sound.
Yes, this definitely also shows BiaB's versatility.

Hey I liked the intro! Every instrument sounded as if they were in my room giving me a solo performance. A+ on this one!

Very NICE! I love the intro. Your vocals are always good. I agree with Floyd, a little SD needs SNL.

Great use of RealTracks. Like it!

Gruve,

+1 to all the accolades said already.

I loved your opening line - "Half a sandwich in your left hand/ half a pickle in your right" - now that's an attention grabber.

Your first with BIAB - wow how cool is that...

Thanks for listening and commenting. Yes, I've always come to BAIB after I've finished writing the song on guitar. So choosing a Style, key and tempo, then typing in chords and then playing it back over and over until a melody emerged was a fun experience.
