I really like this.

Even if you had not said that this was inspired by Dylan, I would have said from listening to the music, that the song was definitely inspired by the '65 - '66 albums - 'Bringing It All Back Home', 'Highway 61 Revisted', and 'Blonde On Blonde'.

I think you are definitely channelling a mix of Mike Bloomfield and Robbie Robertson and some of the other guitarists who worked with Dylan at those times.

Also, I really like your backing vocals.

Thanks for uploading this.

Hi PeterF & Leon,

WOW! WOW! WOW!!!!!! Congratulations on that one !!!!

Song great, vocals great, guitar great, but the lyrics are more than just fantastic - I LOVE'EM !!!!.

I've been trying for almost 50 years to memorize(and maybe one day fully understand) the lyrics of Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues, and now here comes another one which I right from the start liked almost as much... Elaborated, sage, funny, even cynical and with a message - who could ask for more. Wish I could make up something like that one day ...

This song is a diamond - thanks for posting !

Stefan

Wow! You've both done an incredible job creating this one.

All the best,
Noel

Thanks a lot Noel it was a challenge fitting in all those words.

YES!! A fine, fun retro tune with great guitar and....a lot of lyrics (Leon must have been suffering from writer's cramp after that!). Some really clever writing and great production. FUN, FUN, FUN!! Take care. Greg

I love the guitar licks too.


Thanks Ray - vocals not clipping in the DAW possibly it's the cymbals clashing that you are hearing, they were hard to tame - and changed the sound a lot when I eq'd them.

The, as Robert said, "loosely raucous" backing really nails that period when Dylan moved to the electric side of his catalog. And your guitar nailed that feel also.

Superbly cool you two!

Thanks J&B much appreciated. I'll pass the comments on to the vocalist/lyricist.

Super groove, reminiscent of the early Beatles. Your guitar lead fit both the song and the era. The vocal was great and the words were, oh----many. Great lyrics, really.
