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.

Captures the sound of time perfectly.

Love the jangling guitars.

Catchy chorus.

Fun listen! laugh

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,
