Some songs keep my attention for at least 30 seconds. Good ones keep me there right to end (whether bitter or sweet!). This one took me back for a rare second dose. Many thanks and congratulations on a great write/production/performance.

J&B and Peter,
Straight ahead unfussed, but still finely detailed ( Janice`s vocal asides and Peter`s resonator are very good).
Superbly produced, of course.
No idea if this is intended to be topical, but there sure are lots of folks on a short tether these days... so this fit nicely with what I observed on the road today-yikes!

Robert

Thanks for the supportive comments! A second listen has to be earned and I’m glad we accomplished it. Thanks for mentioning the write also.

Classic and classy. A very fine "complaining" lyric that feels universal delivered with that now classic Janice world-weary slip-slide and harmonies. The guitar was exceptionally good. Those turn-arounds had that sweet "fresh, yet inevitable" musicality that feels like home and landed just right to allow the verses to come again. All in a sonically pleasing package of goodness.

Janice, Bud and Peter ...

Love these minor key, classic Blues. And this one just pops. Great lyric ... the very first line promised a great listen. So, who has a better voice than Janice? Very few, that's who. And Peter gets more from six strings and ten fingers than most of us who have picked up a guitar in earnest. Great fretwork! And the mix? Never as disappointment and always a smile with Bud twisting the knobs.

I absolutely loved the walk-down between verses ... stunning in creation and execution.

I also loved the backing vocals Janice did - in places, almost a vocal commentary to the story.

Excellent x big numbers! Take care, folks ...

Alan

Hi Janice, Bud and Peter.

This is such a inspiring song! Everything about it sits so well on the ears. Without any sense of hyperbole, this is first class listening all the way.



Peter, your guitar work is polished and professional. I've never heard you play resonator before. I love the sound of your playing. It's not as overpowering as the Realtrack resonator guitars sometimes are. You've got the knack!

Bud... it's two enthusiastic thumbs up for the mixing. I notice that you used CLA plugins, Ozone 9 and Nectar 3. These are my go-to tools these days, too. Mixing and producing still challenge me. These plugins help keep the blood pressure down. Most important, though, they work a treat.

And Janice... your vocals are truly a joy for the ears. I love all the fill-ins and the harmonies. I don't know how you do it. When I listen, it sounds so easy. But when I try to do this sort of thing, my brain goes haywire. While I can write harmony, I cannot sing it easily at all. As I listened to your vocals on this, there are many lessons for me to learn. I'll definitely be going back for some ideas.

All the best to everyone,
Noel

J&B,

I love the tempo/rhythm of this tune, it's perfect for the title and lyrics! Love that little descending turn around thing going on! Janice has just the right kind of voice for these songs and gives another flawless vocal for this! The guitar sounds Peter has on this are excellent as well as the playing, reminds me very much of some of the sounds John Fogerty used to get in the CCR years! Perfectly engineered and mastered as far as I'm concerned Bud! T

Thank you Robert. Yep, we’ve certainly noticed those short tethers. So topical yes but not applicable to the two of us!

Man - I'm a day late and all the good words have been taken! wink

Love it all the way from the descending turnaround to the long fade on the piano at the end.

In my head, I'm visualizing a 1920's era cartoon, flickering in the screen as characters lope by with a double-bounce walk and rubber-hose animation.



Love the resonator!

Then again, picking any part out in particular means ignoring some other part.

So I'll just cheat and say it's all excellent.

And it's not really cheating if it's true, is it? laugh

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

Lyrics, production, vocals and guitar - in fact everything about this - absolutely first class. Great stuff. And a nice cover pic. Hope you watched your step on what looks like a slippery edge there, Janice.
Regards,
Leon

Thank you you and "slip-slide" is a cool description -- in our bluegrass days we called it "bent note" singing smile

And, yep, Peter did a fine piece of work with this.

Appreciate it all!

Smooth easy mix, love the dobro and of course, what's a song without great vocals.

A tasty treat!

Hi Janice & Bud,

I am always happy after listening to your compositions. The rhythm and the vocal are always well done. Janice is always so expressive and I could see her on video (super well done between us). Well done. I appreciated.


Kindly regard
