Hi Rob. Many thanks for the review, much appreciated.

Hi Ember. Thanks for looking in and for the nice comments.

Atmospheric & bluesy - nice change at the bridge.
Peter

Hi Peter, Yes, the drums are indeed programmed via MIDI, using a sample player.
The samples are ones which we've made ourselves and we have a collection dating back
to the 80s when we got our first Vesta sampler! We still use those old 8 bit samples, but
the ones on this track are more recent 16 bit 44.1k.
Anyway, pleased you liked the track and many thanks for the review.

Cheers, ROG.

ROG,

Slick tune that captures a feel and runs with it. Could see this as a backing track to something like “Stranger Things” or the like. Love what you do on that bridge—great production work. Really impressive work—enjoyed the heck out of my listen.

Kindest regards,

Deej

Love that super contrasting Beatles like bridge.

Super cool lyric that is absolutely nailed with the great vocal.

Getting a bit of Jeff Lynne and The Traveling Wilburys ... which for us is a very good thing!

FUN!

J&B

Hi there J&B,
Always pleased to get a review from you two; much appreciated and many thanks.
Been a great fan of the Wilburys since the 80s, so well pleased with that reference.
So, glad you liked this one and it's good to be back on the forum again.

To overcome that fear, you must become the night.


I enjoyed this. Nice work.....yep

Thank you very much, Herb. I made myself nervous with this one!
Pleased you enjoyed it.

Great track, Rog.
The 'feel' takes me back to the 60's heavy Rockers we used to do.
Great vocal and superb tracks.
Loved the 'nod' to Space Oddity in the short bridge.
Welcome back
Ian

Hey Ian, that's very nice of you.
Yes, I go back to the 60s as well! Hadn't thought about "Space Oddity" but now
you mention it, I can see where you're coming from.
Many thanks for looking in.

Always like your vocals! (and they fit this groove so well).

Terrific mix. Everything tucked in nicely where it needs to be. Cohesive.

Enjoyed.

Hi Floyd.
Always value your opinion, so glad you approved of this offering.
It's reassuring about the vocals - I'm always riddled with self-doubt them.
So, many thanks for the review.

Hi Tunemonger. Thanks for the review and kind words.

Hey, Ray, that's a very nice review; many thanks and much appreciated.

Many thanks, Ghostgum. I always strive to get variation into the songs - nice that you picked-up on this.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Deryk. As it happens, I did work with a few folk rock bands in the 70s and obviously some of it rubbed off.
Many thanks for looking in on this one.

ROG,

Sweet! Great progression, guitar work, mix and overall production. Excellent.

I want to apologize for being so absent from the forum. Also, I will be candid that this part of the post is kind of a generic “form letter” to my old and new forum friends.

In brief, work is very hectic right now and I am having a hard time keeping up with the forum and even writing new songs. There is also a lot of new material hitting the boards—more than I can listen to and reply. People are on a roll!

Instead of backing away from the forum I want to stay involved by just giving the equivalent of a “like” as opposed to full-fledged commentary.

This way, I can just keep listening, and enjoying and reply with a simple LOVE IT or something like that.

I do listen, love your stuff and really want to continue following those who are so dedicated to encouraging others, even if it is only with one word.

Hope this makes sense, thanks for your artistry and forgive my brevity going forward with massive time constraints.

Also forgive me if you see this message more than once until I know I have covered all my bases.

Peace!!

smile

Extra-fine blues rock number. You keep the "chills" coming and the "push back" and effects in the middle are just plain creepy. Very entertaining and unsettling.

Hi David. Personally, I'm grateful to anyone who has time to listen, however brief the comment.

In the eight years I've been on the forum, it's changed considerably and there's far more songs on the
Showcase than ever before. I've been spending a lot of time travelling recently and when I am at home I
find that the work has piled up, so I'm having the same experience as yourself.

There are so many excellent tracks on here these days, that listening to and writing a full review for all of them
can take up more time than I have available. So, like David, please forgive me if I don't devote as much time to
the forum as I would like.

Cheers, ROG.

Hi Tangmo.
Many thanks for the positive comments - "entertaining and unsettling" is exactly what I was after.

ROG,

Super tune! An emphatic Blues-Rock song that put a big smile on my face!Z Love that variation in sounds, particularly the chorus. Sounds like Travelin' Wilburys on the verses and Beatles on the chorus. Really cool! Good to have you back on the boards. Wishing you the very best ...

Hi Alan. If it made you smile it was all worthwhile!
I still don't have as much spare time to spend here on the forum as I'd like, but
hoping to be around a bit more for the remainder of the year.
Thanks for looking in. Take care.
ROG.
