Damn, that sure is HOT!!! I fell in love from the first guitar groove in the intro, and fell deeper with each note/word. Some songs (not many) sound like hits, some are just great songs, and very, very few are both, but THIS IS!! Wonderfully natural, expressive vocal and a really profound, unpretentious lyric that has heart and bite. Absolutely love the second set of verses. You have really found your voice. Amazing work!! I'm in awe! Take care. Greg

As everyone (without exception) before me has said, this is fantastic. Songwriting and song-presentation doesn't get any better than this anywhere.

Such talent is obviously not a surname thing. How I wish it were smile

All the best,
Noel


Hey Brother Adams, I always look forward to your comments on the writing. Thanks for these. It means more to me than I can say. Tom

Wonderful

and your vocals are perfect for this style and melodic cadence
To read these comments from a great songwriter like yourself is something special. Thanks Gruve. Tom

Greg, I want to thank you for giving me such great reviews and for your continued encouragement. I may have mentioned this before but you were my inspiration to concentrate on greater clarity in the vocals. I surely can't sing like you but I can try and steal some of your processing tricks. Thanks, Tom

Tom,

All the superlatives have been grabbed. You are too modest
regarding the melding of your playing, the RT, your vocal
and the loops. It takes a visionary approach to do this and
that trumps whatever difficulty there may or may not be
in pulling it off. The end result shines and sings!

As with all your songs you have a way of writing themes
that are profound yet at the same time are subtle and work
on as Lawrence said "more than one level."

And this song is one of your best expressions of that talent.

Well done!!

J&B

Very creative use of the artificial to make this whole piece sound organic. And just to bead that long-dead horse: It's hot! wink

p.s. Is there a way to adjust the volume of your songs on your main page?

I still can't look at you and NOT see T Bone Wolk (RIP). I have a DVD of the tribute Daryl Hall paid to his dear friend T-Bone after he passed. "The Guy With The Hat" as they called him. You are the spittin' image!

Hi Tommy,

For some reason the intro and verse of the song reminds us of 'the only living boy in New York' of Paul Simon. And then of course there is the John Hiatt sound ;-)
Cool guitar playing! and we definitely love the Brent Dreamy RT!

Another winner.

Tommy,
I wasn't expecting a song about climate change but you sure nailed it. Very good song and performance.
One comment about the lyric.
"Mother Nature’s warning us I think she’s scared to death"
In my business, I think about weather, climate, and the Earth everyday. I often wonder if "Mother Nature" is benevolent or vindictive. I wonder whether she would be "scared to death" for us. However, we should be scared for us.
In any case, it's definitely "not nice to fool with Mother Nature"

Steve, Yes it sure is hot there as well! My wife was born down in the valley and it can be blistering along the border. Thanks for the nice words. Tom
