It's always fun to remix this song, now I have pro JBL monitors and Melodyne to lock in the vocals. I wrote this in 1975, can't remember the girl it was written for. The BB instrumentation gives it the weight I always imagined, but couldn't play myself.

Nicely done, Will smile Love the groove and progressions, and the song really packs a powerful patch. That chorus is perfectly catchy. I'm getting some strong 80's rock vibes here.

Thanks for sharing!

Another nice tune from you...
It has a pleasant Buddy Holly feel to it...
Thanks, I enjoyed the listen.

Def Buddy vibe.
There's not much happening on the left channel for the verses - possibly because of the crunchy guitar on the right.
The Holly Everyday jangle of the intro is a little overpowering.
Fun song.
Well done.

Will,
Nice vintage resurrection. Good work on this! Mix is clear. Everything sits very well.
I like your tunes, and this was not exception. Typing this, I realized that "playlist" of your tunes is playing for the past 40 mins in the background smile

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

It all fit together really well IMHO, I enjoyed it. Especially liked the soaring guitars in the beginning.

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

Hi Will,

a really good rocking song that made my feet tap from bar one. Well-written and well-sung. Very enjoyable.

Cheers,

Stefan
