what floyd said! (He has this magical way with words... much like the magical way Janice has with singing them)

That just about sums it up for me too. I remember hearing Josh White sing this way way back and it kind of got me interested in the blues. You two are amazing.

In a phrase... exceptional in every way!

All the best,
Noel




Noel, you are too kind my friend. We are really happy that you liked the a cappella intro. We thought it worked out but it is great to hear that you agree. Thank you for mentioning the mix also. I've learned to accept that the minimalist mix with fewer tracks works best for me. I would love to get that lush sound you and a few others do but it just seems to defy me. Too many years with a four piece bluegrass band I guess!

Thanks again.

Bud

Fantastic arrangement. Really liked the acapella intro, and the way the band came in so cleanly.

Really great work!

J&B, Killer vocal. That a cappella opening with the precision band entrance is just stunning. The arrangement is perfect and the mix is very clear with everything where it should be. Great job on the piano comps. No missteps here and I have come to expect nothing less. Congrats on another beautifully executed piece of art! Tom

I'm so glad to hear someone putting some of those New Orleans Shuffle instruments to good use, I've tried with no success yet.
I haven't heard this one before, that I remember. It sure sounds good here. Enjoyed!

Apologies if all my comments sound the same for your songs, but I have a limited vocabulary in terms of superlatives. I use my whole stash on every song!

Bud, I hope you already know how highly I esteem the many talents you bring to all of your projects! Your skill in mixing, RT choices, song research, lyric writing etc etc have been proven over and over again!

Congratulations to both of you on yet another piece of well-produced ear candy!


Pat, Bud here, I can't begin to tell you what a smile you put on Janice's face with those comments. When I suggested a slow a cappella kickoff I could tell that she was a bit apprehensive about it but she nailed it in a couple of takes. It means a lot for you to say that. And I myself genuinely appreciate your remarks about my part in these productions. I'm a work in progress and your support helps a lot.
Thank you,

Bud

Thanks! Glad you had a reference song for it. It's amazing how many versions are out there. We tried to take it in a little bit of a different direction.

Thank you Tom. We really do appreciate that and especially come from the mix master! Glad that you liked the opening. The song has been done so many times that we really wanted something a bit different. The band entrance was a little tedious in getting everybody to step on it at the right time...glad you noticed and liked it!

Thanks again,
