Tom,
Out of the park good - enjoyed and repeated louder!
Oh and that`s the best use of stops I`ve ever heard here or just about anywhere.

Hello, Tom

Great Blues Rock! Very powerful!
The promised intro phrase is wonderful.
The sounds following it never disappoint us.
Your vocal and guitar solo are splendid.
Excellent production!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hey John, thanks for coming by and commenting. Now that I think about it, it probably is RHARV's fault. Tom

Loved it!

Thanks Ian. Once you get into the blues it never really leaves you. As for the full sound, a lot of the guitar tracks were double and triple tracked using different tones. Thanks again for stopping by, Tom

What really appealed to me was your attention to arrangement. The interplays between drums, strums and silences were perfect. However I listen to this, there's only one inescapable conclusion that comes to mind.... you REALLY know your stuff!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. Apologies for missing a few of your songs. Circumstances have taken me out of action for a bit. Hopefully I'm back bouncing again now!
Noel, I am always so glad to see your name pop up here. You once again have bolstered my confidence with a fine review. Thank you, Tom

I can pretty much picture the band playing this.

Seriously great job.
Caaron, I originally took the hi hat chicks out. Then I had a moment of clarity and decided like you said that they added authenticity. So I went back and edited them back in. Thanks for mentioning that, Tom

That opening lead is one of the best recorded leads ever presented here. Quality plus!

The vocal, too. Up-front and "tucked in the mix" at the same time. Magic ('cause I don't think there is any other explanation). You have a terrific voice for this stuff!

Kickin' bass! Excellent drum sound. Love the stops. Blisterin' leads.

And a good Pop-Rock-Blues write. Had to go back and listen a second time the pay attention because the music just sweeps you away the first time...

Gettin' out my TOM ADAMS stamp: TOP NOTCH. "As good as it gets".

Thanks for the great review and I appreciate the nice words on the vocal. It can be a challenge to find that sweet spot on the volume. Tom

Ember, Thanks for stopping by. The opening guitar figure is reminiscent of Bad to the Bone as well as Muddy Waters "I'm a Man" , Tom

I love the blues and I really love this. As David just said blues done right. This would fit right in the 1969 Filmore East venue! Humble Pie or The Allman Brothers would open for you! Your leads reminded me of Michael Bloomfield! You are one hell of a guitarist. I'm in total envy.

This is a keeper.

Back to blues? Like a runaway freight train.

More! More! More!

Thanks for the seriously awesome review! Tom

Mario, Bloomfield was the guy I tried to copy in my early years. I wore out those Butterfield records. The ABB are at the top of my favorites list. Thanks for the ongoing encouragement. I appreciate your support, Tom
