Marty did a video for our song The Sage, and knocked it out of the park IMHO.



The Band:

3086:Organ, Rhythm AmericanaSlow128Mike Sw 040
3356:Guitar, Baritone Electric, Rhythm Moody128Brent Sw 060

Drums: EZDrummer2

Dave Bell - Additional Guitars and Vocal
Marty Straub, aka BabuMusic - Bass
Christiane Spruit - Vocal Harmonies

Mixed with Reaper, mastered with Ozone.

The Sage (2020, David Bell)

There's a Stranger, in the night
passing by, in the cold moonlight

A sense of wisdom, he has the sight
In these times that we live it's hard to tell
what's wrong from what is right

Can you tell me the answer, my friend?
The life we've known is coming to an end
So much has changed, been re-arranged, can't tell dark from light
Can you tell me the answer, my friend?

Solo

Can you tell me the answer, my friend?
In these times that we live it's hard to tell,
what's wrong from what is right
What was up is down, what was lost is found, can't tell dark from light

Can you tell me the answer, my friend?
Can you tell me the answer, my friend?
Can you tell me the answer, my friend?


This will be our last post for 2020, so I hope all our friends here have a great Christmas!

Marty & Dave...

Loved it. Great to hear the song again. Terrific video - looks great in full screen.

The performances were my favorite parts. Y'all "lip-synced" those guitar parts well - fun to see...

Well done.

What a treat for the eyes and ears. I must have missed this the first time around. Super guitar and bass playing. Some fine vocals and the video is outstanding. Very professional in all aspects. Top shelf, Tom

I don't recall having heard the original but this song and video are great! So good to see both of you doing your thing! Dave, I didn't know you were that talented a vocalist ... loved it! And Marty, you can make those big ole strings lead the way ... really nice work!

Love the song and the great video. Kudos to both of you! And I don't want to forget Chris' vocal harmony. She's a very talented lady.

Wishing all of you the very best. Merry Christmas. Be safe ...

Alan

Dave & Marty

Nice to see the video to the song.
And an excellent video at that.
Not sure I could replicate the fingering for a solo so expertly Dave.

Beautifully produced Marty.

It took ages to get those guitar parts right. First needed to go back and figure out what I did originally, then needed to memorize it. And then mess it up as soon as the camera started rolling wink

Thanks, floyd!

Thanks, Tom!

We posted the audio version a few months back I guess, I think you were on the road at the time.

Ok. I thought I was losing it for a minute. Songs with videos I tend to listen first, without viewing the videos. Videos tend to take songs in a different direction for me that I have a hard time not seeing after I've seen them. So, upon my 1st listen (which was not) I thought it sounded familiar. Like too familiar. I kept hearing a bit of Pink Floyd (for me) but I could have sworn I heard this before. Then in reading what you wrote, it turns out I did!

Now, that being said, I sincerely apologize for not responding the first time. I was sitting in a parking lot of a hospital while my wife was having surgery. I just wanted to listen without effort...if that makes any sense. I just wanted to let the music lead the journey and be a passenger. Thank you for having a song strong enough to do that. Life got hectic and I never ending up posting a thank you. But this song is SO deserving.

Absolutely haunting and organically celestial song. The video definitely took it there. It feels like your not only part of the universe but experiencing it. Sonically fantastic. The performances by all of you were first rate. That guitar solo blew me away! You may have to change your name from Dave to "K.T."...kind of tone.

Excellent, excellent, excellent song. Thank you all for sharing you talents with us!

I was blown away when I first saw Marty’s rough sketch for the video, he really captured the essence of the song visually I think.

Thanks for taking the time to watch and comment, appreciated!

What a cool song Dave. Awesome vocal and the guitar just wow !!!. The harmonies were so delicately placed around the vocal.. Loved the video. Was awesome to set you and Marty playing. My new favorite of your song.

We rarely start a video for a song we've previously heard with the notion that it will enhance the audio; however, there are exceptions and this is one! Really well done.

I asked Janice if she wanted me to do a vid of
her singing sometime and I got "the" look smile

You guys have some great chops and it's cool to watch them ... no matter how hard it was to put it together!

The hardest part was figuring out what I had originally done, and then memorizing it. Most of the solos I do have a big improv element, I'm sure yours are the same.

Thanks Peter!

Team, what a sensational delivery. Striking, mysterious, unique, all wrapped together as one.

Every part is a winner, and presented with a very interesting video, providing both clarity and intrigue at the same time.

Very nice, yes, very nice.
