Forest Road was the main road leading into Sydney from where we lived in earlier days. We used to say it would take us anywhere in Australia (technically it probably could). This however is fictitious.

Hi Peter,
I sure like this one! The song did not lead me to nowhere...I liked all the instruments and especially your guitar playing. The sax was a great touch! Great job!

Great song
Beautiful sound

I like your solo's too

About the voice: go listen to some Bob Dylan's album as John Wesley Harding and you'll notice a great similarity

Got a nice 50's groove. Bump the vox a few db and it'll set better.


A good time party song. nice.

That's a fun groove. Your playing and the sax worked together very well. Like a couple of guys who've been playing together for a while. Hey, bring that vocal up a bit...it sounded great!

Cool production.

Hi Peter.

A great track that really drives along.

Great choice of instruments and excellent guitar work and vocals.

Like Alyn, I thought some of the sax's lower notes were a bit hot and I would have liked a bit more reverb on the sax generally to push it further away - it was a bit up-front compared to the vocals and guitar.

Really enjoyed it.

ROG.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
