Heh. It would be a massive step down for you. laugh

And yes, these songs really are "demos", even if that's as far as they get.

Quote:
Us rubes out here in the deep south provinces have not read much Poe other than the obligatory high school exposure. However, your shoehorning of his poetry into this lyric resulted in a fine lyric. The rubes missed out on ELO also but that notwithstanding we much like and enjoyed your arrangement.

Your background isn't that far from mine. The main difference is that I'm a big fan of the Alan Parsons Project, who started their series of concept albums back in the '70s with an ode to Poe titled Tales of Mystery and Imagination.

More recently, Eric Woolfson (one of the two producers of the Project) did the musical Poe - you can find the video here, and it was also released as a studio album. Think of it as the musical Cliff's Notes version, although - as expected with any adaption - it veers a bit from the historical reality.

Good to hear from my favorite "rubes"! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks, Lawrence. smile

The sax wasn't my first pick, but it was exactly what the song needed there.

It's really nice to be able to get pro-level music from BiaB on demand. It's almost an embarrassment of riches.

Liked the lyrics. Liked the sound of the backing tracks. Nice mix.

Fun to see what you can do with synthesized vocals.

Great job!

Really like this David!! Very melodic, very well arranged and produced!! Was there an Alan Parson's song with that title.....they did a Poe inspired record and the title is very familiar to me. Very cool stuff!! Take care. Greg
