Janice's vocal sounds like this is the song she was meant to sing (but, then, she makes everything sound like that). Kenny's harmonies work nicely.

Love the snare! Kenny's guitar work shines. There is definitely a Mellencamp vide to the whole thing. The mix is excellent.

Sounds like a classic.

Thank you and especially so for mentioning the Mellencamp vibe. Glad you liked the snare doubling also. And, of course, your comment re Janice’s vocal put a BIG smile on her!

To everyone involved in the production I say, "You really got it down on this one!"

In solidarity :),

LOREN


Loren, thank you for the thoughtful review and thanks even more for the understanding of the feel and lyric of the song. We appreciate it very much.

I really loved the journey you all took me on!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. My contribution amounted to nothing more than a speck of sand in a desert. All the kudos belongs to Janice, Bud and Kenny!


Thank you Noel for the generous comments. We are akways appreciative of your insights and your suggestions regarding bridge structure were significantly more than you alluded to smile

Well, you've got all the big names involved in this one, so I was expecting something good and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Right from the start the groove was there loud and strong in a clear and powerful mix.
Janice, well what can I say that you haven't heard so many times from me before. Fabulous.
Great guitar from Kenny and excellent BVs throughout.

All this, plus a super story-line lyric. Everything works SO well you must all be so proud of this one.

Cheers, ROG.


Hey ROG, great to see you back around. We really like your latest song you and your son did. Too cool! Thanks for your kind words. You hit on all the things we worked hard to get right so it even means more to us. We appreciate it!!!
