Many thanks to everyone who has commented since my last appearance here. I appreciate it so much. This was a fun song to write and finding the right backing tracks led me to some more interesting RTs I might use in later songs. Again, thank you very much.

Alan

Hi Alan
Super tune. Very fun to listen!
I was not familiar with Delihla (Delilah) before your song, so I had to look her up smile

About a month ago, I was reading about "Little Egypt" a pioneer belly dancer of 19th century. Supposedly Mark Twain had a near heart attack experience watching her dance...
Maybe she should become a muse for your new song smile

Best regards,
Misha.

Hi Misha,

Thank you very much! Glad you liked it.

Yes, Little Egypt would be perfect muse. I'm familiar with her but she didn't cross my mind as I wrote this. Also, Mark Twain grew up just a few miles from where I grew up - but a few years before I did! Best to you,

Alan

Oh yeah, the Redbone vocal feel is assuredly there...and that is a good thing. Makes us wanna go back and revisit some of his catalog.

This is an excellent write and a ton of fun. Not a throw away line in there. Great cinematic imagery.

The dobro was quite the surprise and it fit nicely into what is a fine arrangement and mix.

Catchy and fun...in the best sense of those two often use words.

We much enjoyed it!!!

J&B

Howdy Folks,

Thanks for those very nice comments! And I, too, have been a Leon Redbone fan for many years - back into the mid-to-late 1980s. That subtle, understated baritone voice always makes me smile when I hear it. I'm delighted that influence showed through on this one.

The reso/dobro took me by surprise when I heard it but I just couldn't pass on it. I considered a trumpet or clarinet, in typical Redbone style. But, as I said, the reso/dobro refused to go away.

Again, thanks so much! Also, I like your new avatar!

Alan

Great mood to this one Alan!! The music and the lyrics marry so well together. Love the resonator.....different than I've heard that RT used before but very effective. Very cool song!! Say hi to Di. Take care. Greg

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Greg,

Thanks a bunch! When I stumbled onto that reso, it wouldn't quit nagging me, so I used it. Glad I did. Appreciate all those very nice words. Looking forward to your next one. Everything you record sounds like magic at its best. best to you.

Alan

Thanks David,

I think the reso is the star of this one - so glad I stumbled onto it. "Retro and coo;" - I like that. Thank you. Wishing you the best.

Alan,

Nice groove!
Catchy minor swing!
The various elements really mixed so well.
Folk, Country, Jazz, Gypsy, etc.
I cannot say which genre it should be categorized, but it is a very fun song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.
