Hi all, been gone too long and have missed out on a whole lot. Even for got how to do quick links LOL... Getting old doesn't help either.

My first post on Soundcloud.

WHISKEY WITH THE DEVIL, Was all done in BIAB and Real Band. With all real tracks. I wrote it sometime ago and can't find all the lyrics right now, but they are pretty clear in the track I think. Country Ballad style, Thanks in advance for any listens.

Rob, I really like this. Very well written and sung with great conviction. Nice ending. The dobro fits in very well. I love this kind of country melody. It is very familiar but also brand new. A great listen. Don’t stay away so long, Tom

Thanks Tom,
Seems like I'm always busy since I retired. Often it's because I'm working on my next soon to be rejected #1 hit, Lol....

Rob,

Nice! A truly classic Country song in all regards - the subject, the production and classic Country vocals (quite Haggard-sounding). Nice harmonies, too...

A very good write. Classic.

Very good mix, too.

Enjoyed the listen! Really well done.

Rob,

Nice to hear a traditional country song, particularly when this it’s well-written and well put together. Love the dobros. And while it’s “traditional,” it nonetheless sounds really fresh. Sad, but compelling and thoroughly engaging listen. Nicely done!

Best regards,

Deej

Yes indeed. A good old country song from the heart.

I've drank whiskey with the devil a few times. He always refused to sign the contract in his blood.

Yep. Good song.

Classic country, the kind I love.

This should be played on the so called country radio stations around here.

I could picture Haggard, Strait, or George Jones singing this masterpiece!

Great work on this one.

i LOVE the high harmony part and how it fits so sweetly.
there are a couple of very essy spots that could use a little volume automation to take away the sting but, otherwise, it's a really good song well delivered.


Cheers

Thanks for reminding all just how good "classic" country can be.

This has everything we look for ... a good write and a vocal that is
both heartfelt and soulful.

Well done!
