Man ... it's almost impossible to beat a hard driving, shuffle blues. And this puppy rocks the house! But, how can you not expect ... and always receive ... near=perfection with Janice on the mic, Peter smoking those strings and Bud twisting the knobs like crazy??!! You folks some of the very best music these old ears have heard. No slow burn here ... this thing blazes all the way through.

Best to you. Please be safe ...

Alan

WOW, It takes off right from the lead-in guitar notes. Driving piano is the perfect bed for Janice's emotional voices. So well sung. And Peter's guitar is outstanding with great tone!! So enjoyable from lead-in guitar to glissando (or whatever) piano.

Thanks Al. When it’s all said and done a blues shuffle is our favorite groove. Thanks for the positive comments and man you need to hear Peter’s “just jamming” takes! Smoking.

Thanks again and best to both of you.

Yeah, this kind of groove is always fun.

Love the vocal of course, but *really* love the background vocals, very cool.

And always enjoy hearing Peter do his cool thing.

Track sounds fabulous, Bud, I listened to the snare especially after reading your notes, nice!

Great job as usual you three!

Hi there J&B + Peter,

A classic, rocking blues track, with all the right elements in there.

A faultless backing track with a perfect choice of instruments.

Janice and Peter both flying in this one - guitar and voice full of emotion
and using that elusive and hard-to-do blues timing, which makes all the difference.

Great mix, Bud, as I've come to expect from you. (No pressure there then for next time.)

A fabulous track which made me smile.

ROG.

Glad you like it and thanks for mentioning the piano. After many generations that piano tag appeared after listening to many much less interesting ones.

Thanks for all!

I have run out of adjectives trying to describe how great you all are!

As usual everything is spot on, great vocal, great guitar chops and an outstanding mix.

Loved this one.

Janice, Bud, Peter...

Straight-ahead-driving Blues right from the first note. And it never lets up.

All the usual accolades apply.

Stellar vocals. Love those BGVs.
Cool/hot guitar throughout.
Superb mix.

Everyone needs a "hometown" write. And this is a good one.

Good to the last drop (note). What a cool ending!!

J&B + Peter,
Super moving tune! Janice vocals are very engaging and lively. Cool vocal octave variation / repetitions tails. I must say, Peter's guitar stole this show smile Bud...tune shines! Your production skill level is something I look up to. Enjoyed it much. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

I mentioned in Dave’ s song that this is my favourite genre. Another perfect blues tune. Awesome vocal and Peters guitar hits it out of the park. Very cool backtrack and harmonies. Loved the mix. Well done

I have been out for that past several weeks, so when I get a chance to reconnect with all my friends in the forum, I always look for a Janice and Bud (and Peter). Because I know I will never be disappointed. And I never am! This, like everything I hear from you guys, is awesome. Great job by all!

So glad I had time to get back here.
