Solid tune altogether. Can't wait to hear more from you - thanks for sharing smile

Many thanks, Deryk and pleased you approved my excuse for absence!
Really glad you liked the song and, yes, I should be back to posting regularly this year.
Thanks for all the nice comments, especially about the solo.
Cheers, ROG.

This contains all the goodness we have learned to love from your productions over the years...so not unexpectedly, the write, your vocals, and your guitar/bass performance are top notch (as are the RT/RD choices and the mix).

As floyd mentioned it sticks with you...begging for another listen which we are about to do!

Kudos!

J&B

Hi there J&B.
Hey, thanks for looking in!
As always, I really appreciate getting a review from you two, and I'm so pleased you liked it.
Looking forward to spending more time here this year.
Cheers, ROG.

John

Hi John.
Yeah, I remember Steve Gibbons - saw the band live back in the early 70s. Brilliant! I actually share the same birthday as Steve, but
he's a bit older than me. In fact, he's still gigging now at age 77. As Tom Petty said - If you never slow down, you never
grow old. (Last Dance With Mary Jane)
So, it's good to be back and many thanks for the kind review.
Cheers, ROG.

And I think I'm not the first one to tell you that your voice and way of singing has a lot in common with the young Ray Davis, for example singing 'Too Much Monkey Business'... Just to make sure: That's a huge compliment !

Stefan

Hi Stefan.
Many thanks for looking in on this one and I take it all as a complement!
Always been a fan of Chuck Berry and I guess it shows through a bit in this one.
Thanks again for the nice comments.

Rog, I just sat back and smiled listening to what you did with a 3 chord song! Excellent man!!! Guitar was great along with all vocals!! I really liked the effects on the background vocals! It made me realize how I need to pay more attention to that part of my workflow! Thanks, Torrey

Love the old 60s style rock and roll. Hear a twinge of Tom Petty in the vocals. Definitely one to get you up and dancing. Good write.

This is great. It sounds like the songs that came out of the rock resurgence in the late 70's. A lot of fun, great lyrics, and searing energy!

Hi ROG,

This is a really well created and equally well presented song. I reckon that classic rock n roll is one of the most inviting musical genres around and you've capitalised on all it brings to the table. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. In fact, my feet started bouncing up and down from around bar 1 beat 2 and just kept on going until the end.

Very, very listenable music iced with very entertaining lyrics and singing!

All the best,
Noel

Hi Torrey.
I really appreciate the review and all the positive comments, especially about the BVs. They are quite time consuming
so it's good to get feedback - it makes it all worthwhile.
Many thanks.

Hi Belladonna.
Many thanks for the review and the kind words. I'm a great fan of both Rock & Roll and Tom Petty, so I guess it's
showing through in this one.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
