My very humble regards,

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!

Thanks a LOT. No doubt Peter smiled at the Slowhand reference! We appreciate it all.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
