I liked the use of the 12/8 time signature. It gave this a really good retro 60's feel.

Overall a very good production. Maybe a little long, but I noticed the fade starts at about 4:40, ends at 4:55 and then there is silence until 5:40?

Nice ballad! Has an early 60's vibe which is totally cool in my book.

Good writing and I like your vocal too. Also enjoyed your solo work during the outro.

Good song, enjoyed the listen!

The treatment of the bvox is perfect for the era/style.
The main vocal may be a little aggressive and a smidgen too loud.
The rim shot is a bit loud.
Have you considered mixing it in mono?
I reckon it'd sound perfect with everything up the middle and some reverb over the top to get a bit of a Spector vibe.
Cool song!

Nicely done smile I'm definitely getting a 60's vibe from this one which is never a bad thing in my books. Really strong vocals, and everything flows perfectly. Nicely catchy, and a really concise and professional mix as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Great retro piece. Some real soul in your vocal delivering those lines. The band sounds great. I kinda agree with Ray...this might be a good one to deliver in mono just to give it that feel in spades. Nicely done and much enjoyed.

beatmaster,

A very nice song. Good retro sound. I liked that you "kept it simple" - fitting for the era.

Nice vocals. I thought the chorus could have used some typical era background vocals - oohs and aahs, the do-[*****] thing...

Enjoyed.

Really enjoyable ballad with the 60's feel. You have made good work to make it sound so authentic. Great silky vocals. Good to know about this style, already inspires me to use it for a certain type of a song smile

Really enjoyed this, I haven't heard any attempts at this style of music on the User Showcase, it's very refreshing! It's so good it deserves some real doo-wap background vox. But still very good as is. Lead vocal was smoooth!

Beatmaster,
sweet! Ritchie Valens comes to mind. Nice era revival tune. Liked 99% about it. The last 1% is related to "chorused" drum sticks. Rims? not sure, but they have sort of doubled effect. Maybe somebody who knows about drums more can explain this the right way smile
Enjoyed this a lot!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Beastmaster,

I’m liking this . . . very 50’s, early 60’s throwback . . . totally digging the back up vocals on this; they kill. Really nice job on the vocals overall. Some nice spacing and patience with tempo that really give this song a great, warm feel. Stellar!

All the best to (ah-ahh) you,

Deej

Nice harmony on the chorus. Good balance - I liked the panning of the instruments. A bit abrupt fade at the end.

An enjoyable listen!

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

Hi beatmaster,

This is very reminiscent of The Platters and a number of other late-50s-early-60s groups. You've captured the period really, really well. The vocal harmonies nailed it! On top of this, your singing is as competent and as professional sounding as always and it is an excellent fit for the genre.

I really like what you've done here.

All the best,
Noel

Rayc The main vocal may be a little aggressive and a smidgen too loud.
The rim shot is a bit loud.


I did listen on numerous devices when I mixed this song, the sound was sounding a nice balance on my Arcam system with or without headphones.

Listening direct through my line 6 interface it sounded the same as the arcam, car, Bose speaker, all good then I listened through my phone and a small Bluetooth speaker and that's when I thought the same as yourself, although I did settle on leaving well alone.

Just for my interest what do you listen through.

Again thanks for your comments as I do appreciate it.

P.S. Loved the idea of yours Mono ?.
