VULTURE (video)

VULTURE (audio only)

Some "down south" and "down under" blues grin

We aimed for a 12 bar blues lyric that pays homage to the 1920's Delta classics while arranged with a more modern blues groove. So, as befits Delta Blues, the lyric is dark. While arranging it we heard an Otis Rush tune with no intro (unusual for blues) so we decided to try it.

Janice sang a bit grittier and I used a light dose of some Ozone vintage modules keeping with the spirit of her delivery.

We asked PeterF if he'd be interested in playing some blues and he quickly sent us several tracks that nailed the groove and added extra feeling and depth to each verses' vocal and lyric.

So a shoutout to Peter and as always to PG Music for making the rest of the band possible.

But, hey, I'm obviously biased so we most welcome your time to listen and comment - hard blues fan or not!

For those inclined toward the tech stuff:

Vocal: Rodes NT1 via Scarlett 212 USB interface to Logic Pro X / Ozone "Vintage" compression and tape saturation / EMT 140 plate reverb sim

Guitar tracks: Peter and whatever he does to them smile

Drums: RD Blues Rock Shuffle / tag comped from Logic Pro X kit sounds / Neutron/EMT 140 plate reverb sim

Bass: RT 1646 / Neutron / comped from three tracks

Piano: RT 2730 Logic Pro X Direction Mixer / Neutron/EMT 140 plate reverb sim / intentionally left it a bit dark sounding

Organ: RT 2731 Logic Pro X Direction Mixer / tweaked Neutron “Dirty B” preset”/ EMT 140 plate reverb sim

Mastering: Izotope Ozone 7 Advanced with slightly tweaked post eq, added imaging and light limiting.

J & B and Peter,

I`m not familiar with the genre, but I`d say you nailed the "dark" feel on the lyrics ( there sure is something supernatural about those birds)- a great image to start the video and that no intro opening woks for me.
Yes, Janice does sound a little grittier than usual and that fits. Peter`s guitar work is stellar. Going back to turn it up on SoundCloud.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!

I've been listening to music like this for more than 40 years, and I could listen to music like this all day.

Intro is very different, but cool. Good write, and Janice has that blues sound nailed, just great chops!

And Peter is just awesome on this! There are lots of guys that *think* they can play blues, but Peter is the real deal, I love what he brought to the table.

BTW, that turnaround is the cats meow, just giving you a heads up I'm going to steal it at some point :P

Going to check out the video now .....

Lots of folks posting blues oriented songs lately here, but there is certainly room for this one!! Great sounding track! As usual the production, audio/video are top level and Janice's vocal is as good as it gets! The guitar (PeterF) is outstanding! Thanks, Torrey

Holy Smokes! This is just so danged good - can't think of enough good things to say. To say janice sounds terrific is like saying sugar is a bit sweet. And Peter, I hope you had a fire extinguisher handy as the guitar work is smoking! Love that rundown going to Peter's 6-string magic and between the verses thereafter.

What a treat! Dark - smokey - and done to perfection!

J&B,

I am not a fan of the blues but I am a fan of you. So, I listened to the song. I did enjoy it very much. I even felt familiar with the song as well as the way Janice is singing. It is probably because the quality level as music is very high.

Delta blues was pretty much defined by Robert Johnson. Cream and other English groups helped popularize it and, ironically, re-introduce it to America. Two of his more notable songs are Crossroads or Cross Roads Blues (Clapton) and Love In Vain (Rolling Stones). Glad you liked it and hope it worked for you when turned up smile

Dang! Seems like Everyone is on fire these days... EACH of you certainly are...

This forum is producing some of the best music available these days.

An excellent BluesRock write! Simple, yet meaningful, thought provoking yet complete... Tight.

In a VERY long line of great vocal performances, I think this is Janice's ultimate - constrained yet unconstrained, confident, chillingly good...

Peter's guitar work is every bit a match for the write and the vocal. Nothing out of place. Tasty.

The "behind the scene" work is stunningly good. Bud - you are a real talent. The mix is impeccable.

ZOWIE.

Wow, you nailed this! I love the groove, and how hard it hits. It's nearly impossible not to move to this. I really enjoyed the vocals and the lyrical subject matter too. Adds a whole other level of uniqueness to it.

Thanks so much for sharing smile You should be proud of this!

Just had another listen - some items on the menu require a second helping. I may have to pig out and go back for even more! It's always a pleasure "know" people who are at the top of their profession. And you guys are right up there. Thanks again for the great listen.

Damn fine piece of bluesing right there! cool

p.s. Btw, when I went looking, I found that RT #1646 does in fact not exists, you most likely meant 1546?

Coming from a blues man your comments are especially gratifying. Blues has been a huge part of music experience for decades. Any time heart and soul are put into any genre we like it...yet there is something special about blues. One of those you get it or you don't things. Thanks for those remarks and, man, how cool that you liked the turnaround -- it was a struggle to hopefully get right. And thanks for the comments re the preview.

J&B

PS Peter is experiencing some net issues but I know he much appreciated your comment.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
