All in all, a wonderful tune! Sort of reminds me of a post-modern Pat Benatar. You really feel this one in your soul smile Great job, BlueAttitude!


Good ear, I panned the rhythm guitar different than I normally would, been experimenting with different techniques and tools here for the last little while. Always trying to get the mixes to sound better!

Thanks, Deryk!

Yes, that's why I got BIAB in the first place back around 2002 or so. It's a much better program now!!

Thanks, Pat smile

I am not a blues lover, but I love this song. Chris's vocal is very attractive. Everything is of high quality. I enjoyed it a lot.

Chris/Dave,

Y'all just keep getting better and better - knockin' 'em outta the park one after another... everything about this is good.

Super vocal. Excellent guitar work throughout - super solo. Chris' piano adds an extra bit of ear candy...

Excellent mix. Nice added drum bits. Everything "pops".

Great listen!

It's hard to choose our favorite lines but the above will do. This is one of the rare tunes where everything is supportive and nothing just carried along by the stronger elements. The vocal and guitar performances don't let your attention stray for a moment. The production quality is top tier.

The song just soars and soars.....

Well done!

J&B


Thanks Janice and Bud, very much appreciated!

Thanks David!

Well I usually have either the #1 or #2 spot on reverb. But not really as impressive as you might think, it is for my hometown of Peterborough which has quite a small population. Not much competition in the blues genre!

And yeah, love those 12/8 drums! I've used them many times.

Thanks, Hiroshi!

I have a Japanese friend that follows my music over on soundcloud. When he heard this song he told me it reminded him of a Japanese genre of music called "Enka".

Thanks, Greg! I'll pass that along to her, she was very insecure about her vocal on this one.

Outstanding! I am a sucker for a minor blues anyway, but this is way over the top. Great work! Love the guitar work, and the vocals rock!

Dave,

Wow this is good!!! You and Christiane have, once again, surpassed yourselves. I'm sitting here right now thoroughly enjoying listening.

Chris's singing is stunning. She has written a set of outstanding lyrics and the way that she performs them, really sizzles! I found it impossible not to become involved.

In addition, your arrangement is magnificent. I love the instruments you've chosen and the way that you've used panning. That guitar solo burns it's so hot!!!! Your production is incredibly creative and with hints of the 60s when they only had 3 settings for pan (left, right, centre).

I'm very late in getting to this and I'm so glad that I found it.

All the best,
Noel

Excellent, just excellent! Love the grittiness of the vocal, and the arrangement is spot on.

Thanks everyone! Chris and I are slowly getting better at writing and producing songs I think.

My wife and I just got back from a three week vacation to Europe, a dream vacation for us, we spent a few years planning and saving up for it.

One of the highlights was we got to meet Christiane and her spouse for the first time at her home in Germany, up to this point we had only communicated via email. Very cool!

As soon as I have some free time I'll spend a few hours checking out all the posts to see what I have missed smile
