Hello forum friends. Happy Memorial Day weekend! Al David posts some great stuff. He has posted a few instrumentals which immediately caught my attention. And, I love some of his titles. This song started from an instrumental he posted with the same title. I contacted him, got the SGU, made some changes and wrote lyrics around the title line. WIll post the lyrics soon and also catch up on my listening on the forum. Would love to know what you think. Take care all.

Greg (& Alan)...

I thought I was listening to a lost track from the Hotel California recording sessions! This is very cool. The opening acoustic sets that tone. And the leads sound like there was a Don Felder RealTrack!! Is that an RT?? - or did you get someone to play for you - it SO fits. And that vocal sounds like Greg Johnson "doing his Don Henley"...

Excellent write - cool story (only wish the lyric were up already to follow along).

Incredible stuff.

Cool. Cool. Cool!!!

I agree completely and I couldn't have said it any better.

Who is playing that lead guitar? Very impressive!

A great collaboration.

Hi Floyd ...

Di said something similar ... "What a great song this would have been for The Eagles". But I'm more than happy with the Greg Johnson version. Hard to believe they could have done any better than Greg did. Glad you like what he did with my basic offering. Best to you ...

Alan

A great collaboration.


I'm delighted you liked what Greg did with this ... he's the real star here. I just threw a few chords together, picked out a few tracks and let BIAB do the rest. Greg took those bits and turned it into this great song! Wishing you the best ...

Alan

PS: That lead guitar is Brent Mason Track # 1167:Guitar, Electric, Soloist RockBalladBrent Ev 065.

It was the first one I tried and I didn't sense a need to look any further.

The perfect marriage here. The backing is outstanding and so west-coast. The vocal is outstanding and delivers this sad and seedy tale slowly and with such a sense of inevitability. I mean that two ways. It sounds like it couldn't (and shouldn't) be otherwise, and as a listener I just knew this wasn't going to end with a win on American Idol. Those stories, by definition, rarely do. Left me pulling for her and what's left of normal.

Boy do I love this song. I got the Eagles vibe too. What a cool collaboration. That guitar solo was incredible. Greg just loved your vocal and lyric. Such a nice compliment to Alan's instrumental.

One of the best songs I have heard on the forum and should be on iTunes. Well done

Stunning work on a great song.
