Trouble In Mind

Trouble in mind is a public domain song* that has been recorded by hundreds of artists (from Janis Joplin to Johnny Cash). We played it with our bluegrass band years ago and thought it would be fun to do a more bluesy version now that BiaB has given us such a fine array of bands smile We chose a minimalist arrangement with a bit of a mashup regarding RT and RD choices. Like so many of these traditional songs many of the verse variations are a bit vague and rhyme schemes are sketchy but we tried to select some verses (of the many) that hung together somewhat.

As always we appreciate your time to listen and we appreciate any and all comments.

J&B

Vocal: Janice
Drums: Nashville Shuffle
Bass: 2435 New Orleans Shuffle
Guitar: 2436 New Orleans Shuffle
Piano: Comped from multiple generations of 2124 Country Shuffle Rhythm and 2123 Country Shuffle Solo
Bud: Mix/Master/Effects via Logic Pro X, Nectar 2, Ozone 6 and Waves LinMB

Trouble In Mind

I felt like laying my head
On some lonesome railroad line,
And letting the 219 train
Ease my troubled mind.

Trouble in mind, Lord I'm blue
Honey I won't be blue always,
The Sun's gonna shine in my,
Shine in my back door someday.

I'm goin' down to the river,
Gonna take me a rockin' chair.
And if these blues don't leave me,
I’ll rock on away from here.

Trouble in mind, Lord I'm blue
Honey I won't be blue always,
The Sun's gonna shine in my,
Shine in my back door someday.

I'm all alone, I'm alone at midnight,
The lamp is burnin low
I never had so much trouble
In my whole life before

Trouble in mind, I’m blue, now,
I won't be blue always.
That wind's gonna come,
It's gonna blow my blues away

Yeah, that wind’s gonna come
It’s gonna blow my blues away

While Janice is singing "trouble in mind" I'm singing "A new bass I've found" -- Wow, that 2435 New Orleans Shuffle bass really rocks along. Shamelessly stealing your bass player man, offered him $5 more a gig and a six pack of beer to take home.

And the song, great performance, arrangement, mix and production. Enjoyed this one. Excellent at every level.

Janice and Bud,

What a song to start my week, I hope it is prophetic as I sure need "that wind that's gonna come" in about 3 hours crazy . I need sumpin' for the coming weeks for sure. smile

Anyway at the first few listens the change of tempo at 21secs threw me with the plosive at the start of the word trouble, In my ears it sounded like a bit of a vicious edit BUT at subsequent listens it got better laugh . Wish I could have put the song on repeat tho' grin

Janice soon settled into her normal exquisite vocals at every listen.

Your version stands up proud with Nina Simone's and Johnny Cash's versions and is better than Janis Joplin's version IMHO.

A good way to spend 2.18.

An excellent version and "the band" played good!

Thanks Charlie! With our original arrangement Janice was going to play rhythm mandolin and I was going to dust off the bass fiddle and play a walking line. But the acoustic solo sw RTs were a bit too country for the sound we wanted; however, I stumbled into the NO guitar and bass and it changed the whole approach to the song. Yep, it's a great bass RT and even has a slight tuba feel. And with BiaB you can have the bass man on the cheap and he'll always be on time.

Hi Janice and Bud,

Janice, your vocal-only introduction is brilliant. There's nothing quite like launching straight into vocals to grab attention. VERY impressive.

Bud, the mix is magnificent, perfect. I can't imagine any better framework than the instruments you used. You really know how to get the best out of Realtracks.

In a phrase... exceptional in every way!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks Alyn and we hope things are going well with you. FWIW, I don't hear the pop on trouble but I have very old and worn out ears smile I use a breath controller on Janice's vocals to reduce (not eliminate) the breath intake before lines so I'll check to see if it is clipping the first nanosecond of the word. Dunno...but glad that you liked it!

I wish I had never mentioned it now mad blush because at each play it gets better! weird or what but now it is ok. Maybe my ears need looking at smile Although I have noticed that the vol control on my computer was at 100% when I normally have it at 75 or less.
Anyway still an excellent version.

No need to wish that at all! We are always open to mix comments. I backed off on the breath controller and up the gain of the track 2db and uploaded the new version. Thanks!

The acapella intro really highlights the quality of Janice's voice!

... clear as a mountain stream's water

... sweet as a clover field's honey

... pitch perfect as um.. as perfect as Janice's voice! (that's the best example I can come up with for perfection!)


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!

Thanks Peter and I appreciate you mentioning the piano. I spent a fair amount of time trying to get the rhythm and solo RT's working well together.

I knew coming out the gate I couldn't afford THAT piano player! Bass players are plentiful but when you find that special pianist, you know there's also a special price to get em..... I'm too old to help lugging a piano around anyway.

Man! I could listen to that opening over and over and over!

In fact, I did. Heaven.

I cannot imagine a better treatment for this song. Nice work, Bud - truly. You need to get a YouTube video out there, so that when people search for this song by others, they find yours, too. It ought to become the standard for "how to do this one".
