Outstanding guitar tone and chops! A great vocal, super backing tracks, and a perfect mix.

I agree that this sounds like a Robert Cray song.

I have many of the same influences. I have a number of blues vinyl in my collection. Have you listened to Albert King? Taj Mahal?
Keb Mo?

Hi Mario,
You're very kind with your comments.
Once again, coming from a guitarist I really appreciate those kind words.
Cheers,
ROG.

Oh, man, Rog, I grew up with the same diet. I've read your menu and they are all some of my favorite foods. You have really digested them well and spit out some incredible blues here. EVERYTHING in the mix is superb. Great band, GREAT BLUES. Makes me hungry for more.

Hi Leon,
It seems there are lots of us who were listening to the Beano album around that time.
I think it was the second blues album I bought - Lightning Hopkins was the first!
Many thanks for looking in and the kind review.

You and the sax guy sound like you've been sitting in together for a while...really great use of that RT.

Oh yeah, the lyric is super cool.

MORE!!

J&B

Hi J&B,

You really are too kind!
Back in the 80s I played on a lot of sessions with the same sax guy and he
always left these little gaps for the guitar to fill. After a while, you get
to know how the other guy is thinking and on this track, I thought it might
be fun to try to recreate that with an RT. I enjoyed doing it and I'm pleased
it worked for you as well.
Many thanks for the listen and all the nice comments.

Cheers,
ROG.

Sweet tone. That's also some good lyric crafting.

Good song and I enjoyed it.

Hi Belladonna,
Some fifty years ago I was playing guitar on studio session and this old guy, one
of the brass section, said to me - "Always play from the heart and you won't go far wrong".
It's some of the best advice I've ever received and I've tried to follow it ever since.
It's one of the things I liked about your recent song - you sing from the heart.
Many thanks for looking in and for the review - much appreciated.
