Much of my reaction is already noted by others, but there is also this--when an "instrumental" is created by someone who is attentive to and experienced in the lyrical aspect of writing, you can immediately detect this in the melody and song structure--it is very obviously sing-able, once someone decides to construct a sound lyric to it. Attention to accent points, the important repetitions in the phrasing--these are all underlayings that can support a great lyric and vocal, as is seen here. Contrast this with many "instrumentals" that are superb but cannot be made into songs that are "singable". Being familiar with Alan's work--both lyrics and literary works--I know that this awareness of "how the words might fit" is a key element of many of his non-lyric posts. Great work all the way around!!

As others have said, silky smooth.

Lovely vocals, excellent backing tracks, and evocative lyrics all together in a dreamy mix.

Outstanding. smile

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

Greg and Al,

What a beautiful, beautiful song.

Everything about this song -- writing, presentation, production -- is s-o-o-o-o-o polished. The melody floats along effortlessly and Greg's lyrics are the icing on the cake.

Honestly... music doesn't get better than this.

Really well done!
Noel

Simply gorgeous, my friend. Every time I get a message from you asking to put a lyric and vocal to one of my works, a smile grows on my face from ear to ear! You are a song's best friend!

RealDrums in style: CountryShuffle128^3-a:Sidestick, Brushes , b:Sidestick, HiHat

Greg added the electric guitar, so he would have to provide that info. But he sure did pick a great track!

Greg (and Al);

Terrific collaboration—the lyric and backing go perfect together. Excellent production overall, and brilliant touches throughout, along with Greg’s usual smooth, smooth vocal. Pretty melody. Just lovely!

Greg, you without fail shine with this breed of song and Al, you are the man at putting instrumental BiaB tracks together. Tracks that invariably sound like a well honed band.

A band that is perfecto for the engaging lyric and melody.

No need to further parse.

Hi bar pro level stuff happening here!
