I’ve had this title sitting around for a while now. The time came to do something about it. So here’s a little rhumba blues…

Cold Front


It seems a little cool in here

And I know that look

There’s no mystery to it anymore

I can read you like a book

Don’t you go and cry to me

Don’t sing me your sad song

better grab another blanket baby

There’s a cold front coming on


You haven’t said a word all day

Itching for a fight

Then off to bed without a word

Or a kiss goodnight

Made sure the house was closed up tight

Then all the sudden you’re gone

better grab another blanket baby

There’s a cold front coming on

Hey Tommy. What a powerful tune. Sounds a touch like the Eagles.
I really enjoyed this. Rob4580

Another good one

Tom ...

You always post some of the best cuts on the forum.

Sounds like you and I knew the same woman some years ago! Think I might have dated her when I lived in San Antonio! I agree with the previous comments about the eagles and Santana. I get the feel of Glenn Fry sat in with Carlos Santana's band. I'd pay to see that concert! And I'd pay to hear you in concert, too!

This song is so cool but yet hot - at the same time. Love your Tele licks and the raw passion and power in your vocal. Yeah ... sweet!

Best to you. Take care ...

Alan

Thanks much Rob! It’s interesting to me to hear what influences people hear in these songs. They are almost always unintentional but subconsciously show up in the final product. There is little doubt that I am a huge fan of the Eagles, Tom

Perfect execution of the style, and a fine performance, too!
Really liked the "grab a blanket" and "cold front" imagery!
Great work!

Hi tommyad,

The lead guitar is well done and the sound is excellent. The tone of the voice is excellent. I also appreciated the arrangement with the ozone products. I know less about waves products but which give very good results on your voice. Well done.

Kindly regards
Take care of yourself

Tom,
I like the edge your lyrics, vocal and especially lead guitar gives to the latin beat.
Very good!

Robert

Cap’n, I have always liked the feel of the rhumba groove. Electric blues has a history of using this beat. Thanks for the nice comments,Tom

Hi, Tommy. Does is seem like your guitar plays itself when you wrap your fingers around its neck? You have trained it so well. Man, you have great tone and taste. The vocal is top-notch also. I like the sultry feel of this, and you present it so well. I have pages of titles of songs not yet written.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Love blues with a rhumba beat! You don't hear it that often these days.

Tom, man, I could listen to you all day! Just love your playing.

You have the perfect voice for this type of material too.

Just an excellent song, enjoyed every note smile

Tom...

WHOA! LOVE that opening!! Hot playing...

Great sound throughout. Very cool organ! An infectious rhythm in those guitars. Hot solo.

Good write.
"You haven’t said a word all day
Itching for a fight
Then off to bed without a word
Or a kiss goodnight"

...excellent.

Great mix (as always). A great listen. Hot.

Hi, Tommy !


One of your absolute best
for sure ! Wonderful playing
and singing exactly as I
knew it would before listening !
The cold front is here now
and I don´t mind because
I need to burn some branches
from trees taken down last summer !
...and as my barn is snowclad
the fire won´t burn it down when
you do it during high winter !
I enjoyed this tune truly much !

Stay Safe and Take Care, Tom !

Cheers
Dani

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.
