Hi Dave, Marty & Chris,

very cool ! First impression: great image. Then that wonderful intro. A great tune and the contrats between your (Dave's) low voice and Chris' BGV works excellently.
And a good job on the low end, Marty!

A very enjoable collab and listen!

Stay safe, guys,

Stefan

As expected some very tasty guitar work (loved the bends at 2.14)and an engaging melody.

Excellent work.

Dave,
excellent romantic tribute. Chris + your vocals work very well together. Super bass from Marty. Very cool guitar intro and solo, especially interplay guitar & bass at the solo. Mix is PRO. Liked it! Thank you for sharing.

PS. I feel that I am in some kind of hibernation mode...
seems just heard this when posted, now replying on second page smile

A lovely tribute and fantastic song - thanks for sharing!


Thanks for the listen and comments!

Sometimes Ozone is not kind to the engine room ( bass & kick drum) which could use a little more punch, but regardless, the playing is excellent. Nice heartfelt lyrics. Good song. Would love to hear it again minus the organ. I have my fingers crossed that I have not caused offence and in fact, I very much like this song.
cheers
Gary.


No offence whatsoever. Thanks for the listen!

Nothing "fancy" with the orchestration that clouds the main components: vocal/lyric/solo-ing. The result is a work that completely hangs together, and the listener can focus on exactly what was intended, without distraction. Excellent all the way around.


I've never been a fan of adding too many tracks to a song, less is more IMHO. Thanks for the kind words!

"The mighty river, it is strong and it is free, just like the love between you and me.
The mighty river, flowing to the sea, is stronger now, it was meant to be."

From a couple that "gets it" we love the tribute!

Great imagery ... so easy to picture a mighty river.

The harmonies are well done and, no surprise, are mixed equally well.

The solo moves beautifully right along with that mighty river.

Marty has THE knack for the complementary bass part. Great.

Another fine addition to a great catalog!

You know, Dave, you really are an outstanding writer. I listen to our whole album on Spotify and still walk away singing, "Can you tell me the answer, my friend?" or "Winter memories are the treasures that I count..." So now I'll be singing this one throughout the day. Yessir, you make my days so much better.


Enjoy whatever happens!

I like hearing your sing, Dave! Good BGVs throughout.

Y'all have a great sound. Marty's bass is always so buttery, Dave's guitar work always spot on and Chris BGVs the perfect icing.

Enjoyed.

Thank you, floyd smile

It still sounds odd to me to hear my voice in the mix, but Chris and Marty have both been giving me lots of encouragement.

The chorus has staying power.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe we have been hearing more of Dave taking the vocal reins lately.


Yep, third song. I'm well on my way to getting lead singers disease I think eek

Thanks for the listen and kind words!

Bvox reminded me of Maggie Bell or Maddy Prior.

COOL.


Yes, Marty is DA MAN!

Cheers, Ray

Everything working well and together with great performances from everyone.

Loved the tone of the guitar on the intro and the solo was sublime.

Excellent.


I used my tele for the intro, ROG, I know you are a tele guy!

Thanks for the listen and kind words smile

Hi Misha,

The way we work is that Marty does his part last, I typically use a BIAB bass player if I need something to play off.
So Marty has my lead part to play off when he lays down his part. Makes it much more organic, almost as good as being in the same room.

I see you have a new one up, I'll be along soon to give it a spin wink

A beautiful audio painting! As people have already said many times, the imagery is fantastic! The choice of sounds used, and placement of those sounds create such a strong sense of emotion.

I won't go into details of every aspect as it would be an awful lot to write. I'll just say, don't sell yourself short on your vocals. Those vocals stacks you have going work really well together in my opinion. On your own immediately set a tone for what to expect. Then it opens up like the heavens when backing vox come in.

Also...I forgot to mention, it's really catchy. Sometimes that not the goal of a song along these lines, but you managed it in a very pleasurable way!

I've gotta say, I love it! You all should be very proud.
Thanks for sharing this!

Very warm song, beautiful melody. Vocals and the BV layers, organ, guitars, bass - all together highlight the warmth of love in the lyrics. On the first listen I thought the solo didn't sound like a slowly wandering river, but more I listen to it, the more it reflects the strength and freedom of the river.

There's much to appreciate about this song. The lyrics simply and directly testify to the sheer, swooning exhilaration that comes with the discovery of loving feelings between two people. What's more, using the beauty and glory of our Mother Nature to describe the power of those feelings is truly inspired and inspiring, too. Having a female voice (Ms. Spruit's) in the background echoing lyrics sung by the male vocalist speaks to the pairing of souls that have found each other, at last.

All the above is rendered even more memorably by Mr. Bell's and Mr. Straub's acoustic instrumental performances on electric guitar and bass, respectively, that blend quite seamlessly with the Real Tracks. Regarding those, the rhythm organ Real Track adds a spiritual dimension/sound to the song that seems to sanctify the bond of affection and committment spoken of in the lyrics.
