Hi J&B.

Hey, the track really worked out well.

Very much a reggae sound, but smooth and polished at the same time. More sophisticated than the early Jamaican sounds and beautifully complemented by Janice's cool, relaxed vocal delivery.

Some great guitar from Peter and an excellent mix just top it all off.

Loved it.

ROG.

;-)

(When Janice is singin' that's easy to do anyway...)


Hahahaha! I felt that way while trying to sync the lyric in the video!

so interesting and entertaining!
Great vocals and guitar. The percussion is unique (including the claps).
I liked the video and the ending.
Great collab altogether!

Thanks Guenter! It was interesting learning a little about reggae percussion. There is a name for the reggae third beat emphasis (the claps) that I forget.

J&B


I'm always amazed by drummers and percussionists being rhythmically challenged myself. I'd love to be able to do what Janice did on this...but I'll just stick to guitar, tambourine is about my limit.

Bud - Y'all keep stretching the boundaries. Without seeming to realize it....This is very innovative. Reggae+...adding something new - the J&B twist.

Janice - you are indescribably good.

Peter - nice guitar work on this.

I couldn't shake the feeling that Janice Joplin might have been doing something like this today. I know, that might sound weird...(but, Mrs. Merritt has been compare to so many other greats - this is no stretch)

Unique.

Cool.

A fan.

Hi Janice & Bud,

Wow! I like the song very much! Rhythm, vocal, guitar play, cajon play, and lyrics!

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.

Greg


Greg, it's very cool and gratifying that you like where we took this song. It went through a lot of variants before Peter came in and nailed the groove. Cassette tapes were a big part of our musical journey. Our bluegrass CD was recorded on a Tascam 8 track cassette recorder. Things have indeed changed.

It was a pleasure to add some guitar to the track thanks for the generous comment.

Thanks! Appreciate you mentioning the videos but they are a LONG way from what you do with video clips. I do not have the skills or patience for that.

Glad you liked it!

The lead guitar REALLY takes me back to the 1st Wailers tracks rerecorded with Island. they pulled in a great session player to add guitar licks over the top to bring the songs further into the sphere of western ears. It worked then and does with this track. Well done Peter F.
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.

I think Janice has a wonderful voice . . . every time I hear her there is a tension that I as a listener feel . . . let me explain:

I feel like at any moment she could go "full on" Janis Joplin which is one of my favorite female singers of all time . . .

So when I listen to the dissonance in her voice, I am on the edge of my seat waiting . . .

good song you guys did . . .

blessings!

Cool tune.... liked the comparisons to an old cassette.

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

Add nothing that adds nothing to the music.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but you can't do both.

I nearly skipped this one. So glad I didn't. So much of the time I find reggae music to be very cliched for my taste. This is terrific and is really in you guys wheelhouse. I should have known you would put your unique touch on it. Bud, your mixes are always top notch and your production ideas really worked on this tune. PeterF's guitar is in the mix just right. 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.
