It's good to see so many Cream fans (and maybe a few converts). Thanks for the comments on the guitar parts,hopefully there was enough "Clapton" in them to give an authentic period feel.
Once again thanks to Bud & Janice for inviting me to play.

Hey, cool that you have that! Mine may be in the basement somewhere in stacks of vinyl. Glad you liked it. Thanks!

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!


Come on now ... they were a British band smile

Glad you liked it!

Janice, Bud and Peter,

I thought it was a very elaborate sound.
It's not enough to mention the greatness of singing and playing, it's really great that there are various gimmicks in the sound.
I think the bass effect (the bass RT with some overdrive, tape sat and vintage compression) in particular gives this song a very unique feel.
It's a wonderful "response" song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Wonderful job recreating rock royalty, and what a lot of work it must have been to do. Brought me back to my high school days, minus the reefer. The Slowhand impression was amazing! Listened over and over, couldn't get enough!

Thanks, glad you felt we captured that vibe. Yep Peter did a fine job with the guitars. And Janice had fun with the BGVs for sure!

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


Thanks David. Glad you heard it as good blues. All it takes!

Chills! This song just grabbed me from the first guitar lick and never let go. Wow - just wow. You really knocked this one out of the park. I felt like I was transported back in time to a small club where the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton would hang out in their early days. This is just soooo good.

Going back for another listen! wink

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.


Misha, your comments are HUGELY appreciated. Every word. Thanks for mentioning the vintage vibe and I have to assure you that seeing me in action would be mostly me twisting a few virtual knobs and then calling Janice to come and listen and tell me what she thinks! smile

Interestingly what I had thought would be my final mix had a grittier vocal that we both liked. We moved on to what will be our next post and I liked the different tweaks I put on the vocal to the extent that I revisited this song and changed the effects to what I had discovered. So you are right on the money regarding the notion that it could be grittier. Now I wish I’d retained the original!

Thanks again,

Bud

Thanks for the fun review! Got Bud cowering around the house smile

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


Thanks Hans, we always appreciate you listening and commenting!

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.

Janne


Thanks Janne. We appreciate your time especially given this isn’t your favorite genre!

Ed, that time transport was exactly what our objective was! Thanks for listening and mentioning that.

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.
