Unique.

Cool.

A fan.



Thanks mr jane -- we appreciate it and are really happy that you think the boundary stretching worked.
We don't think it's weird at all to consider that Janis J might be doing things like this now days. She was already
mellowing out a good bit on her last album...wish we knew how it would have played out -- and with Jimi also.

Thanks again,

J&B

BTW, the cassette operations in the lyrics as well as the picture of a cassette tape reminded me of the time when I was crazy about the cassette decks. I feel it was a long time ago. Sorry for mentioning something unrelated to the song itself.

Glad you liked it and thanks for mentioning the cajon. Most all of us were crazy about cassettes at one time or another...no problem bringing that up! That's why I used those cassette images.

Thanks for listening and commenting!!

speaking of the cajon.. this year at Merlefest I noticed that a LOT of the bands were using them! More than last year! Janice is on the cutting edge of a new trend!

Very nice reggae sound with bluesy guitar and very good vocal.
I agree with Rob. Nice combination of Blues and Reggae.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Thanks! We're happy you like the "reggablues!"

The realtrack bass isn't bad but it lacks the Sly & Robbie synch.
The song is cool given its origins and certainly slipped into reggae well enough.
Cool stuff.


Thanks. This is our third attempt to meld reggae with another genre. We did a reggae some with bluegrass instrumentation several years ago and a couple of years we did one with one of the Blues Rock RT's. Because the Reggae rhythm is sparse (which I like) it is easy to introduces varied elements. Glad this attempt worked for you. I felt like Janice's phrasing and Peter's guitar really nailed it.

good song you guys did . . .

Thanks for listening and commenting! There's a great new Janis Joplin documentary currently airing on PBS. Well worth watching.

Glad you liked the song.

Nice things can happen when you add live instruments to the mix. Experiments sometimes yield good results, and you got that job done in this song.

Thumbs up


Thanks! Glad the experiment worked for you. Until Peter came in I had my doubts but he nailed the funky vibe. Cool that you liked the cassette references. There's a generation now that would not get it smile

Janice's vocals and percussions are spot on. Like many others, i'm going back again and again. Rewind me again, back for another listen. Enjoyed this one a lot. One of your best in my opinion.


We much appreciate that Charlie. This went through many permutations and I'm glad it ended up somewhere that has some appeal to folks. I've listened to reggae on the side off and on for years but have never thought much about the nuances in it. Rhythm wise it's interesting and different but as you alluded to it has become somewhat cliched. I think Peter's guitar broke it out of that mold. Thanks again. We appreciate your support!

This is a great blend of genres. Blues guitar always woks really well with Reggae. Just ask Clapton. The blues player Donald Kinsey from the Chicago band The Kinsey Brothers played for a while with Bob M and the Wailers. Great job with the wah Peter. Janice shows off another skill with some perfectly placed rhythm and Bud continues his high standards of writing and producing. A great listen. Hats off to all three. Tom

Great to see you back! Thank you for the nice comments. We appreciate it and Janice was particularly excited that you noted and liked her percussion. That should help to encourage her to try it again!
