been up, been down, now I'm sideways

i'm miles and miles past giving a damn

i've moved four times in five months

no matter what road I travel there I am


my past won't quit fighting my future

it's gonna be a battle to the bitter end

i nearly had love and nearly had fame

"nearly" hangs on like a sad friend


i keep trying trying to check my baggage

looking for a man who'll help me unpack

it's always more than their carry on limit

nobody's gonna cut this girl any slack


been up, been down, now I'm sideways

i'm miles and miles past giving a damn

i've moved four times in five months

no matter what road i travel there i am

Thanks Kenny. Yep I like that organ too -- never used it before. I put a Neutron B3 grit preset on it.

Hi there J&B.

Well, you know I always love a blues and it doesn't get much better than this, plus it's nice to see a blues venturing away from the traditional 12 bar chord sequence.

Sublime guitar from Peter - reminded me of early Peter Green.

And what can I say about Janice that she hasn't heard me say a hundred times before? It doesn't matter what you turn your hand to, Janice, it always has that same magical quality which gives me goosebumps.

Bud - great mix my old friend!

Loved the whole thing.

ROG.

Oh Yeah!

Loved everything about this. Janet sounds her wonderful self, peter rocks on the 6 string and the video is great. Bud's on heck of a knob turner on those controls!

We particularly liked this couplet:

my past won't quit fighting my future
it's gonna be a battle to the bitter end

That organ is outrageously good! Smokin' all the way. We totally loved it! Kudos to all of you on a job better than well done.

Thanks Rog! Janice smiled big time when she read your comments. I thought I had a decent mix going and my asking you to put your ears on it resulted in it hitting that sweet spot. Without even changing a pan or any track gain your notion of where to tweak some EQ and add a bit of compression were spot on. I much appreciate that.

Thank y'all! I bet you liked that couplet smile Like we talked about it expresses the same sentiment as two lines that you recently wrote. But, I must confess that mine was "appropriated" from a line I heard in the Jusitified tv series and wrote it down thinking it might work in a song. So yours was based on songwriter talent and mine...well. Glad you liked the organ. The Neutron "B3 Grit" setting worked well.

We appreciate the great review!

PB&J!

(HA! ...couldn't resist that!)

This is SO easy to listen to. Smooth and Excellent - in every regard.

For "nothing lyrically serious here" this is a very fine blues write.

I'd say that Janice is "at the top of her game", but how can I when that is where she ALWAYS is.

Peter's guitar work is exceptional! Your best ever, man... it SINGS.

And another (ho hum) crystal clear production and mix from the master. Perfect drums. Nice B3. Everything "in place". Ho hum.

SO easy to listen to.

I sure do love the blues and this one has all the good stuff! Some super guitar work and a stellar vocal. The write is engaging and some great lines in there. The sound of the mix and the individual instruments is outstanding. This is a top shelf production. Bravo to all three of you! Tom
