Hi All,

This is a new song called [Link no longer valid]

There’s a cold front
Coming over me
There’s a morning
Plain as can be
There’s a woman
She’s on my mind
Runs like a river
Down the mountainside
Far from the city
She’s fading fast
The rain is falling
First drop to last

There’s a cold front
Coming to our town
There’s a hail storm
Ice on her gown
There’s a woman
She’s painted grey
Moves like a twister
Then moves away
A final eclipse
She’s riding high
The sun is shining
Make the day dry

There’s a cold front
Coming to my door
There’s a spring rain
Before the pour
There’s a woman
She’s flying south
Never looking back
Moon is coming out
Scratch of the record
She’s skipping beats
The day is over
Before it repeats

All BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085

Man, I just love your music! It never fails to move me.

Vocal is awesome as always, did you use more reverb than you normally do? Sounds great.

Nice dynamics, the way you brought in the electric.

You must have almost enough material for a CD by now I think?

Really enjoyed this, well done smile

Bob,
your narratives are always a welcome hear and listen.
The arrangement is very appropriate and the solo divides yet joins the halves of the song.
I've mentioned the FX on your vocals several times so won't go there this time.
Good one!

Another VERY cool song, Bob. You have developed such a wonder "Robert Dean Sound" through the last year or so...

Nice arrangement throughout. The bass seemed a bit "jerky" in the opening verse. It worked fine once the full band joined it.

Your vocal on this is excellent.

Excellent write.

Great write...love the way the "cold front" progresses - over me, to our town, to my door.

Yep as all, including us say, you have a signature sound but it never restrict you in any way and, in fact, serves to leave the listener wanting more.

Great production and arrangement -- nice build. And your vocal nailed the mood. Just the right edge to deliver the mood.

We much enjoyed it!

J&B

Chilly… I can really feel the cold front approaching, but still I hope it won't replace the sunny and warm Easter days here in Finland smile Vocals are great as always. You have loaded that electric guitar with strong emotions, in this kind of simple arrangement it really cuts deep.

love it when I come here and find something new

by an artist that I really like and admire

as always the sparse backing works perfectly

like those drums and that altcountrymoody guitar

There’s a woman
She’s painted grey
Moves like a twister
Then moves away

I love those lines, so good!

Really nice work on this - it sounds really sincere, lush, and emotional. Your vocals match the backing tracks perfectly. It flows gorgeously and really hits that soft spot for me

Thanks for sharing smile

Dave,

That is very kind of you and very appreciated - thanks!

Yes, I added a touch more reverb to my vocal - felt it would help with the sound I was going for. Thanks also for the comments on the electric guitar.

There may be a CD one of these days. smile

Thanks again,
Bob

This one gets in and stays there. I like it! I might borrow your lead style, it makes it sound very good! I wish I could come up with the word I want, but I can't. I like what you did with this.

Bob,

This is really splendid. This might be my favorite of yours so far, to replace--WOODSTOCK!

Remember that one???

The arrangement is awesome the way you have mapped it out. I am totally jealous dude!

Fantastic lyrics and vocals. Spectacular man.

She's uncatchable, but worth the effort. Powerful imagery with a power-worthy backing and voice. Much enjoyed.
