Hey!

Is this a cool song, or what? Janice's voice and that walking 4/4 acoustic bass line sell this one immediately. I'll be redundant and repeat how much Janice reminds me of Susan Tedechi ... somewhat in vocal character and more so in her style and delivery, particularly phrasing and accenting.

And Peter simply nailed it with those savory licks. I always enjoy his work. And that guy who turned all the knobs and managed all the tech stuff knows what the heck he's doing. Not sure who scribed the lyric, but a tip of the hat to him or her.

The mix has everything exactly where it should be ... a full soundscape but not at all cluttered. That organ has some real nice fill.

Loved everything about it. I'm writing this on my third listen. Yeah I like it more than a little bit! Still tapping my feet and chair dancing (not a pretty sight!).

Best to all of you. Please take care and be safe.

Alan

Hey, glad you liked that bass! I (Bud) used to play a lot of that style. We all three appreciate your remarks. And we’re glad you liked the lyric. Another of Bud’s silly little ditties smile

Y’all take care also. We’ve been hunkered down since early spring.

Thanks again,

J&B

Hi Team,

I got a very 1950s vibe from this one.

Everything about it fitted the era perfectly for me and I loved
the walking bass line and Janice's relaxed, swing vocal delivery.
Peter's guitar work was super, but I might have preferred a slightly
more jazz-style tone to fit with the vibe of the smooth backing track.

Great arrangement and mix as always.

Excellent.

ROG.

Janice, Bud, Peter...

As always, top-shelf music.

The BAND is in top form. Bass sounds great. The acoustic is PERFECT (often an overlooked or over accentuated part of a full mix). Drums are seamless. Organ is tasty. Peter's guitar work fits in like a seasoned part of this band. (One of my favorite leads from him).

A superb mix.

"Preacher told me I gotta change my ways
Ain’t gonna happen, no matter what he says
He’s just spouting that holier than thou tone
Forget it Rev, I’m looking for a no fault zone
No worries, no warnings, it’s a no fault zone
Not gonna say I’m sorry, not gonna brag on how I’ve grown"

Nice. Great refrain!

Deb is sitting here. She just said "How does she DO that!? She has THE GREATEST voice!"

I'll leave it at that.

fj

PS - nice album cover!

Hi Bud, Janice and Peter,

What a lovely, cheerful song! (Despite what happens in the lyrics)
I do liked the modest way of singing in it with the very nice harmonies.
Again, no complains at all on any part of the song. So no expertise from me is needed here ;-)
I can only say, take a good sip of whatever booze you like and enjoy your earnings for this very good job you did.
I drink a rum and coke at this moment so I can toaste with you!

Hans

Hi Janice and Bud,

I had such a hard time pinning this song down! It sounded kind of 50ish. I heard shades of Patsy Cline, while at the same time Shania Twain. Although most of the instruments are labeled as "jazz", it sounded like an old country tune coming from the guy who owns the best sounding radio in town...

You folks consistently put some really good sounding and unique tunes. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen.

Hey ROG, thanks for everything! You can blame me (Bud) for the absence of a more jazz like solo. Peter sent me a lot of tracks including a jazzy solo and I picked this one. So it ain’t the guitar man’s fault smile

Thanks again for your continued support!

Love this tune. Another awesome vocal Janice. Love the bass lines in this tune. Peter just nails the guitar in this tune. Another awesome production as well Bud. Love the magic you put into the song. Well done

What a great song. What a great recording. What a great mix. Outstanding hook line "no fault zone". Wonderful guitar playing, as always, Peter. I really liked this song.

Sounding like Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks to me, loved the jazz element, and Mr. Guitar was up to the task. Clever lyric and it got my foot going. Love that Ron Carter Walking Bass. Excellent work, folks!

Hi Janice, Bud & Peter,

where to begin.... that is so fantastic in all aspects:

- a great 'flowing' song (I know it's not easy to write something like that)

- awesome lyrics

- Janice, that was another highlight - got the feeling that this song was custom-made for you. The BGN of the 'No worres' part is an extra treat!

- Peter: lovely work in the guitar, fits like a glove

- Bud, said it before; 'Don't know how you manage to get that sparkling and crispy sound over and over again - but I sure love it endlessly.

So incredibly good !!!!!

Take care,

Stefan

I'm glad it isn't a jazz solo - the one you chose has Pete letting rip with some cool licks and a bit of expression.
The narrative is great fun and the melody is perfect as is the performance.
Better than a bought one I'd say!
Class act!

Hi Bud,

Just to clear up any misunderstanding, it was only the tone of the guitar which
I might have changed, not the solo which I thought was great. I've always respected
Peter's playing and had no problem with what he did this time. What I was saying is
that I might have mellowed out the guitar track to fit better with the 50s vibe which
I could hear. Basically, just running off some of the top end on that track.
At the end of the day, it's a great song and I was just being picky!

Cheers,
ROG.
