Great to hear Janice sounding so right on this and the guitar throughout is stellar... as is the production.
The only thing I could wish for( and how would you find it?)is more Ginger Baker brilliance on the drums.
This is a marvellous surprise.

Robert


Thanks Robert and it means even more as you are familiar with the music. We three appreciate everything you mentioned. A Baker RD style would be cool indeed. He held back on the some of the Outside Woman cuts so maybe we snuck by smile

Appreciate your time and supportive remarks!!

Just a quick note on the guitar - used a Line 6 Variax -(the Les Paul was in the other room and it was all hooked up to the Helix). Also a Line 6 Helix amp simulator, chose a Marshall Amp - rolled off the treble on the guitar - turned up the amp - instant Woman Tone - as per Clapton's instructions on the Goodbye Cream video, played one note - instantly sounded like Strange Brew (Dave almost impossible not to sound like it!) and took it from there.

Thanks for the comments on the guitar - Bud & Janice presented me with a great chance to play a bit of Cream.

Loved the vocals and premise right from the start. Bud did a great job mixing all the bits I sent him.

Thanks Scott. We couldn’t agree more regarding Peter’s playing. Ace.

J&B and Scott,

Smoking—I mean paper on fire smoking—in all respects . . . just killer start to finish. And oh, the slick back up voc. Wow—just top, top notch.

My very humble regards,

Deej

Guys, this is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

Peter is channeling his inner E.C., both in terms of style and tone, just perfect.

And Janice!!! I don't think I've ever heard her sound better. Just as good as it gets, fabulous.

Excellent write and mix, Bud.

You guys are the best in my book, love everything you do.


Man, to read that from BlueAttitude is fantastic!

Firstly because y'all are such amazing Blues Rock artists
and secondly because of your familiarity with Cream.

Thank you BIG TIME!!!

Another great song. I can really hear the Cream influence. I still have my vinyl copy of Disraeli Gears.

Haha...there’s an old family churn residing in our house. Now it will remind me of our tune smile

Thanks for listening and commenting. You have a great ear for mixes and performances so we are delighted to hear you like it!

Well, I loved it. I don't get ANY of the musical references y'all get, I wasn't brought up round that particular neck of the woods, haha ;-) ... but the sizzle of the song is unmistakeable anywhere, with any musical upbringing. Great job - superb production as always, superb writing as always, superb singing as always. Another top-notch production from the Janice, Bud, Peter crew :-) Well done!

You nailed the Cream sound, no doubt. Great bluesy vocals. Nice touch with the background singers. Outstanding lead guitar. I love it. Top notch arrangement. Congratulations to all. Great recording.

I can't speak to the authenticity, as it was before my time... something I can say less and less often these days, so thanks for that! wink

But I can recognize good blues when I hear it... and that's what I heard. laugh

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

J&B and Co.,
Excellent vintage crunchy, fuzzy blues tune! Everything very cool! Guitars are so different and SO GOOD! Peter, big thumbs up! Janice is a queen of the show for sure! Bud, you need to start selling master class videos on production., would love to see you in action. You done great! Congrats team on another gem!

P.S. I finally have a small suggestion or opinion on your tune if I may. Instrumentals and mix has very authentic vintage feel, but vocals have a bit modern (clean) tone. I wonder how it would sound if to add some tube emulator to vocals, even if it will sound somewhat hot/distorted. Could be fun. Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Peter, as much as I dig RT's there just isn't any substitute for tasty tracks composed for the song and performed by a talented musician such as yourself. Take a bow.

Bud, the mixing and mastering are magnifique. So much so, that I didn't really even think about it until after I listened. Top shelf. And once again, I appreciate you sharing your work flow.


Thanks for everything. You put smiles on three folks' faces!

We very much appreciate you taking the time to listen and offer such supportive comments.

Oh yeah...the lady got her say. It was nice of you gentlemen to provide such a killer band and mix for her to wail over. Heck, one of you even wrote her lines. Now THAT'S love and understanding...or at least a bit of fear. Respects.

Wow, after reading all the posts on this excellent song, I was thinking what to say that hasn't been said yet.
I am afraid that's impossible, though! It is such a good song, so well sung and performed and with that very cool leadguitar from Peter.
Oh, let me not forget to mention the lyrics. Now I know the meaning of a 'back burner' (and a 'helix'for the Les Paul).

Thanks for this song, Janice, Bud and Peter,
Hans

I normally would skip this type of blues song if heard on the radio, I'm not a fan of Cream... but this is a magnificient exception. Nice backstory. Everything sounds amazing, the mix and all the effects on the guitar and the bass... just screaming the highest quality. Peter's playing is the backbone of the track and so good that I thought Peter has to be a pseudonym for some of the greatest rock guitarist on Earth smile And on top of this is the real cream: Janice's voice brings the traditional blues lyrics very much alive.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
