Hi Vic,

This is excellent listening.

I love the story and way you tell it in song is awesome! The arrangement shines with confidence and you've got little bits of aural candy popping up here, there and everywhere. I absolutely loved this musical journey.

All the best,
Noel

I always enjoy a song with a story, especially ones about gamblers, and other rough characters and their dark fates. The song fits the theme and the story perfectly and the vocals really bring it home.

A great listen. Really enjoyed it.

Nicely written, sung, and produced. I, too, like a good story song and can see this being a hit in the bars.

Hi Ed Z.
Yes, you got it. Something to get your teeth into.
Makes a nice change from "I love you and you love me songs" although they can be great too.

Thanks for looking in.

Vic

Lead me to those bars, Ezekiel.
We'll have to wait a while over here though as we are in the middle of a 3 week lock down.

Ah well!

Thanks for the comment.

Great story. I really liked your mix and your outstanding vocals. Don't worry about the length of this song. Alice's Restaurant was 18 minutes long. If you can keep the listener listening then you have done your job regardless of the song's length and you definitely managed to keep me interested.

Great song!

Hi Mario.
Thanks for the encouraging words. Maybe the song's too short. :-D

Love it, Vic. Aces & Eights was a wonderful local band. Story songs have been a favorite of mine since Big Bad John, and you are really good at telling those tales. It could be a movie. Great lyrics, vocal and the band and mix is spot on.
