Hi Janice and Bud,

Another fine song. Does remind me of Charleston swing. It's another style than I use to hear from you both.Very cheerful.
I especially was impressed by the wistling. That never went well in my recordings. Got me only strange noises...

Thanks,
Hans

I don't know much 'bout this genre, but it sure sounds mighty good to me. Excellent mix, arrangement, and overall production. Vocal, as always, is Crown Velvet smooth.

Really nice done all of you! Love how upbeat and vibrant it is. A fantastic groove too. Makes for an engaging and really fun listen. I can't help but imagine how good this would sound live. And as always, Janice's vocals on this are phenomenal.

Thanks for sharing smile

Love that Western swing (the first time I heard Bob Wills say 'take it away, Leon' I was hooked).
I think I might encourage Peter to don the cowboy hat a little more often.

Leon


We are honored to be the recipient of your first response Leon! Welcome aboard and thanks for the kind remarks.

"take it away, Leon"

It's special that you have a familiarity with Western Swing as we had mentioned you when recently listening to a Bob Wills compilation and he said that.

Thanks again.

WOW, that was fun!!! Always love to hear Janice sing, but never knew she could whistle too! This is a delightful song with a sweet, infectious melody, some great images in the lyric, and of course Peter's guitar makes everything better!! Great one guys!!! Take care. Greg

Whistling was a very cool touch! Not to give Bud any ideas, but makes me wonder if Janice can do yodeling? smile

P.S. This tune reminded of my all time favorite swing band Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.


Hey, we were glad to hear you like the genre and we are familiar with the Zippers. Yodeling! Oh yeah, Janice used to yodel on several tunes back in our band days and five or so years ago we posted a Western Swing song with her yodeling smile

Thanks for listening!

Very cool song. Love this style of music. Feel cool music. Love the harmonies. Reminded me of the Andrews sisters. And the whistling wow.. Vocal and backtrack were just excellent. Peter's guitar was excellent as well.

Needless to say (say it anyway)...Gorgeous vocals. AND harmonies.

And, now....whistlin', too? Ain't you the Queen Of Enough Things Already?

A GREAT listen. Period.

OH! and almost forgot!!...It seems this is SO good you dragged LEON out of the woodwork!! Could it be? Worth the price of admisssion....



Well it’s a hot, humid blah day for hiking or cycling but reading this raised the spirits hugely. Thanks for everything you said and the time it took to listen and offer the thoughtful review. And glad you like the whistling - She can seriously get the birds going when she talks to them on the porch smile We always appreciate your support!

This sounds darn close to those festival videos of you guys playing in your gigging days.With Peter fitting in perfectly.
The Bluebonnets would work for a band name?
Great toe tapping revival.

Thank you Robert. It’s always nice every now and then to “dance with the one that brung you,”

We much appreciate your support!

I grew up going to Jam sessions with my dad, learning Western Swing, and "old country", and I thoroughly enjoyed the Melodies and Memories. However, you forgot a crucial part of western swing, the steel guitar!!

That was really great folks!! In the early 80's I used to play in the club scene around Houston-Pasadena and boy did this ever take me back, The cadence of the vocals in these songs is so important and Janice sure seems a natural for it! Enjoyed it! Thanks, Torrey
