Thanks Joanne. Appreciate that you had a bit of time to listen and to comment.

I agree... BIAB is amazing software! I first started playing around with the program in 2006 and today, I'm still just as much in awe with what Peter Gannon and his team has made possible as I was back then. Quite honestly, I cannot imagine life without BIAB!

Thanks again for taking the time.

All the best,
Noel

Noel & Floyd...

You know, fellahs, it's really difficult...to comment on your collaboration...while I'm clappin' my hands...an 'tappin' my foot...as I type on my PC keyboard. Whew. Talk about "multi-tasking"!

"What A Crazy Thing" is so much fun to listen to that I wouldn't be surprised if any number of big-time musical stars dipped into the User's Forum every now and then (anonymously, of course!) to "borrow" a little inspiration from the top-tier productions such as yours that regularly are posted here.

I know Band-In-A-Box is great for jazz songwriting, but it's got the blues/country/western/Americana genre down pat, too. I believe I may have to change direction, gents!

Exuberantly,

LOREN

VERY cool.

Thanks, Ray. Much appreciate the visit, listen and comments. Also, thanks for the thought about Rockabilly. That didn't occur to me but it's definitely worth investigating!

All the best,
Noel

Hey Steve,

It's always great to see you. Learning to mix adequately has been a long slow journey for me. I'm still travelling that road but there seem to be less bumps in these days.

Take care and all the best,
Noel

Loren,

I just love reading your posts. Everything you write takes the reader on a wonderful journey of language. It seems to me that you are the personification of the word 'eloquence'. I greatly admire your ability with words.

Thank you for taking time to listen, to comment and for the smiles your post gave me. What a terrific way to start the day!

All the best,
Noel

Floyd and Noel,

Please give me your permission to submit it for airplay in London, UK. The queue is quite long and no Loonies are paid but the exposure is invaluable.

Josie and I have been in the queue for weeks but were finally aired today.

The DJ, Sid Randell, just started a new feature wherein he introduces new artists and new songs from around the world. If agreed, Joanne and I will submit it for you.


Sid wants Country songs.

Donny

Don,

Wow! This is really unexpected. Thank you for your generosity. I've caught up with floyd and we're both good with your suggestion.

To quote floyd, "I'm good with letting Don do whatever he chooses with the song. What good is music if it is never heard..."

That's what music is all about.

Please check your private messages. I'm just about to send one to you.

Thank you again!
Noel (and floyd)

Somehow this one slipped past me. Great remix, no question.

Top job all around.

Floyd delivers once again, and this production has real quality.

Nice! smile

I enjoyed the song very, very much.
Really good.
I see you're interested in getting feedback about the production. I think it's pretty good. If you accept a constructive critique, the thing that stands out for me is that the reverb on the vocals doesn't seem to match well enough the rest of the music. Not sure if it's about the kind of reverb or just the amount (or both).
The vocals seem to be too "wet" (too much reverb) in relation to - say - the guitar solo, the violin and, in the general, the background track. I think if you shorten the reverb tail on the vocals (or just decrease the amount of it) you would have a more "cohesive", consistent "space" in the mix.
And, by the way, the quality of the vocals is so good that they don't really need the help of too much reverb. If you make them drier, their quality would be even more emphasized, they would sound more focused, more clear. Less is more, when we talk reverb (and many things in music production, indeed).
Alternatively, you could add more reverb especially on the solo instruments, so to better match the vocals. But that would not be my first choice.
Of course, this is just my opinion and it's just a matter of taste and / or artistic choice.
Overall, a great song and a great mix. I truly enjoyed it.

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...
