An excellent BAND. A "radio sound". (one of my favorites from the group - y'all might need to come up with a band name).
And to top it off...might be my favorite Peter guitar work - also has "commercial appeal".

This should be the first single from the album.

Excellent listen.

Thank you! It was fun working up a melody for those lyrics. And fun again singing it.

Peter's soloing is heartbreakingly beautiful, perfect match for the song. Janice's melody is excellent and her singing remind me strongly of Chrissie Hynde and songs like Back On The Chain Gang and Don't Get Me Wrong.

The mix is so balanced and polished that I surely can see all my flaws reflecting from it. I very rarely repost anything on SoundCloud, but you have once again made me do it, congratulations!

Hi Peter,

when I read 'Janice on Lead Vocals' (before listening) that little devil inside whispered, 'Janice on vocals? That's what I call playing it safe.'(I'm sure you will agree on that). But this song stands for itself with great lyrics, Leon, very (!) nice work on the guitarsm perfectly arranged, Peter.

And than Janice who I've admired like no other ever since I heard her for the first time... that fits like a satin glove.

No doubt that this is an ace collab, hats off!

Stay well and take care,

Stefan

All four of your are at the top your respective games on this one. Leon’s lyrics are among his best, Janice nails the melody and gives a perfect vocal performance. Bud’s engineering and mixing input allow Peter to put a terrific production in place. And Peter, your playing is your best performance and the guitar tone was perfect. Topped off with a quality modulation. Wow this one hits all the notes. Way to go, Tom

WOWZA,
I really enjoyed the progression and arrangement.
The Peter guitar is fantastic.
The melody & phrasing combined with THAT voice and THOSE harmonies are fanmazing.
Combined with an excellent narrative this gumbo is EXCELLENT.
My ears must be in freak mode tonight becasue, unusually for J & B, I heard some sibilance in the vocal...the only part that I'd suggest addressing is at 2.21.
Loved it.


Cheers

Y'all just come up with the sweetest sounding tunes!
And let me tell ya, Janice could sing the phone book and it would sound good! So when you get a song that is put together as well as this one with some really clever analogies.
Yep another keeper.
Great sound
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen...

Hello Peter, Leon, Janice and Bud,

This was a very nice example of working together on a song, or cohab. It brought us a very nice song!
Everything fit exactly, while Janices' wonderful voice glued it all togheter. Well done
And the lyrics, what a nice way of telling you love and need someone in your life!

Like (all) others, I enjoyed listening to it,
Hans
