"Love at 3"
Copyright Tom Sperrazzo, 1983
--------------------------
Backstory:
Ever have one of those unexplainable songwriting experiences when an entire project comes together in "minutes"? That was this, back in the 80's. Coming home after spending a delightful evening with "X" (name has been removed from song and title--not good to bring those old pre-marriage memories forward, if you know what I mean!), I pretty much had the entire thing mentally written in less than an hour. Then, in the 90's, I recorded this and featured live guitar by a guy I didn't really know at all (Nick Schilling, of Northern Idaho). He was referred by a friend, and he played this in 1 or 2 takes, never having seen the changes before.

In order to re-produce this, I used Splitter to isolate the guitar track from the 25-year old mp3, then pasted blocks of it (including the solo) into the RB guitar track to get some of the original guitar work. I think it turned out pretty good.
----------------------
Talk is right, late at night,
Orange tea and honey, black and white;
"Gettin' Blue with Sunny", life at sea;
That's LOVE AT 3.

Quiet time, rhubarb wine;
Basie in the corner, groovin' fine;
Lovely company for cat and me;
That's LOVE AT 3.

​Friends and acquaintances,
Poetry, paintings--
All know your mellow touch;
Warm afterglow of a goodnight kiss,
Home with my thoughts in a rush. 

​Nearly three, only me;
Suddenly a hint of orange tea;
Shouldn't have to guess what that could be--
That's LOVE AT 3.

I don't know how you brought in that old guitar recording---too technical for me--but it turned out well.

Your lyrics effectively evoke that elation of spending a wonderful time with someone. Excellently crafted.

The melody is strong and memorable. Really good vocal performance on this!

Think I've been there.

Well written.
Nice job of bringing it back to life.
Sound great.



Have to ask for the link to splitter, that looks like a handy tool.

When one of those moods hits you, it just hits you. I have the same thing with my art. Sometimes I just have to sit down and draw and colour all night until it's out of my system. It's the muses calling, I'm sure!

This was a joy to listen to and to read. Thanks for sharing.


Cheers,
Ember

Tano,

Love the vibe of this one . . . really cool jazz number, accentuated with some terrific, very warm turns of phrases. The vocal has the right feel to it, and sits nicely in the mix. Well done. I’m not a huge jazz fan, but this hits all the right notes. Liking it a lot!

All my best,

Deej

Tom,

A good write - visual and aural with a good dose of emotion.

Tracks sound good. Nice job of incorporating an older recording. It all seems to belong together. Nice vocal.

I like it. Enjoyed the listen.

Very enjoyable poetic and romantic song, really delivers the early morning love mood. Very good vocals and mixed in well, perfect for the song. Good work with rescuing that beautiful jazzy guitar, bringing an old record vibe. And good to have a cat there too smile

Groovin' fine. Sweet sounds. The kind of thing the band would play (because they love it) at 3 when the crowd is gone. Yeah, I know what you mean about all of those love at 3 stories, and how it's not always best to share the details. Thanks for that tip on Splitter. That should come in handy. Finely crafted song, and so well sung. Thanks, Tom.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is another level. Totally another level. Your command of harmony / harmonic progressions is something else. Wish I could write like that - this could be a standard for the very top crooners. Bravo.

Great! I think I have said this before, your vocals remind me of a piano-composer guy named Michael Franks. Lived it!

Great job! I'm big into Swing Dance music and the vibe of your song reminds me of Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller. Just a great song to sway with your honey to on a beautiful night.

I like how you brought back to old guitar solo, that's pretty cool. It was a nice solo, so I can understand why you would want to bring it back.

Well done.

I was trying to decipher the lyrics and found myself over analysing this very creative piece but then I just sat back ,listened and enjoyed.
Very glad you resurrected this Tom.

More of that Michael Frank vibe here. This is my current go-to for mellowing out, just brilliant. Way to go!

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.
