Hi All,

Back from a short break with a bit of Rock-a-Billy. This is a sort of tribute to
Sonny Burgess who sadly died in August last year at the age of 88.
He had his first hit in 1954 with "Red Headed Woman" and was still
giging almost to the day he died. Fabulous.

The rhythm section
Drums - RD Country reduced 8s at half tempo.
Bass - Midi, played in from the Alesis Q49 keyboard
Rhythm guitar - RT 703 Accoustic guitar
Piano - Midi Supertrack New Orleans Boogie

The Brass Section
Trumpets - Midi, Edirol Orchestral
Saxes - Midi, Forte
Lead Sax - RT 716 Tenor Sax Boogie

Lead guitar - Fender Jazzmaster. (DI)
Vocals - Shure Unidyne 3.

So, boogie on down...

I've Got A Girl
I've got a girl, sweet as sweet can be
I love her a lot, but she don't seem to love me

I've got a girl, she's over six feet tall
I've gotta stand on a chair, if I want to see her at all

I've got a girl, says she loves me so
She spent all my money, left me feeling low

I've got a girl, always treats me wrong
If she ups and leaves, I'll be glad she's gone

I've got a girl, just walked out on me
So here I am alone, happy as can be

Always grateful to anyone who has the time to give it a listen.

Cheers, ROG

ROG,

This is REALLY well put together. Very big, yet very cohesive. All the parts work together perfectly. (cool bass!)

Sounds like a big rock band recorded in a live session.

Super!

I was just mentioning to the other guys in the office that rock-a-billy isn't something you hear very often anymore! I'll have to show them this song to show them it's still alive and kicking! Really awesome job on this one. It really captures the heart of the genre. Thanks for sharing. smile

Ember

Very refreshing and catchy, although nothing new in this type of song, vocals and modern mix make this really worthy tribute.

You either get rockabilly or you don’t. This showcases everything that is good, actually great, about the genre. It has the energy, the rhythm section, the sax solo, the smoking vocal and, man, that bass!

We’d pay to see this band or to own an album of them.

This is what a standout late 50’s rockabilly band would sound like if they’d had today’s production technology. And we thank you for the opportunity to experience that.

Pure joy!

J&B

What a tune! It is wonderfully catchy, and the arrangement is so lush and has tons of charisma. I'm just imagining this performed in a live setting and filling the dance floor in no time. A great groove, a great vocal performance, and just overall a well written song.

Great job, and thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,
Deryk

Hi LP,
Many thanks for the listen.
I must admit that I had to Google MGTOW to find out what that was all about.
Yes, it does appear to fit, but I must say the song is not from personal experience!
Cheers, ROG.

Floyd - always pleased to get your opinion.

Yes, the double bass does sound good for a sample and I have to say that it's much easier playing
it in from the keyboard than playing the actual instrument. I've used one over the years
and although I love the sound, it's not my favourite thing to play. They're too big, the
action is usually horrendous and they're remarkably quiet, plus you need a truck for getting
to the gig!
Many thanks for the review.
Cheers, ROG.

Hi Ember,
Rock-a-Billy is still something which is guaranteed to get people on the dance-floor.
Long may it continue.
Many thanks for the review and positive comments.

Hi Greg,
I think a lot of people don't realise that the Beatles did music like this in the early days.
I remember it well!
Many thanks.
Cheers, ROG.
