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


Noel Thanks for the comments on the guitar and for a wonderful overall review.

Thanks for noting the guitar. It's always a privilege to play on these tracks.

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 ...

You are too kind Alan.
Thanks Peter

I love the blues and you three have mastered the genre.
Janice sings so well
Peter is an outstanding profession guitarist.
Bub is the perfect producer and mastering engineer.

You are every bit as good as those on Alligator's Blues roster and the songs on blues radio.

Really good production. Vocals and lead guitar during break are great. Lyrics are the big attraction on this one. Well written tune. Another good one gang!

Janice, Bud, Peter...

Damn Good Music.

What more needs sayin'?

An excellent Blues write. Start to finish...
"So many problems, oh, I need a little distance
Been running ‘bout a quart low on patience
Gonna try that ole path of least resistance"
Nice!!

Perfect BAND (As always).
Great mix (As always).
Killer Vocal (As always).

Peter's guitar and dobro - excellent.

This one sounds like a classic. Right off the bat.

Love the turnaround intro to the song. Loved Peters guitar work on the song. Dobro was excellent and his solo was superb. Awesome vocal and call back harmonies Janice. Excellent production on the song. Well done.

Ooh yeah. That's the way to make my eardrums purr. Love it completely - this kinda of blues just hits the spot. Janice's voice, Peter's guitar ... Bud's production skills ... that's how it's done. Janice sounds at her absolute best here ... more, please! And Peter is just heaven - whereas Bud is a little more laid back, but it wouldn't be the same end product without him. That's the way, folks ... you please carry on, I'm just going to stretch and lie down somewhere round here, so I can hear more of your superb tracks. Thank you :-)

Thanks for all you said. And yes those plug-ins are great. Often they make me me feel as though I’m cheating.

I (Bud) remain mystified by Janice’s harmony. It comes to her very quickly and like the lead is most often a single take. She hears it at the same time she’s singing lead — all in her head. And I’ve never used a pitch editor. It would likely explode when she starts her note bending. smile

We appreciate your support.

Team,
Such a nice swinging tune!
Glad I found a time to listen to it in quiet setting. Totally love it. Amazing drive! Melody, vocals, guitars, arrangement everything works so well. There is nothing I would take out, nor add. A refreshing blues tune. Bud, super clear and full mix! I am a big fan of your art & skill. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

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


We much appreciate your supportive and thoughtful comments Torrey!

I thought I'd commented on this but have discovered I hadn't. Perhaps it was because I'd been listening via a fb link.
This has a really cool "live" vibe with the snare leading the saunter.
Peter's playing is perfect for the song. The descending riff is an excellent tag/hook too.
The vocals have the weary from walking edge to them that sells the song.


Cheers

Sounds great! You two are the blues masters!

smile

Hey, I have noticed a lot of people on the forum are singing the blues.

Is there something going on in the world that I missed?? Why isn't everywhere super happy?????? I really haven't been outside my room for an entire year or watched any news at all. My Internet has been down as well. Did something happen while I was gone??

Janice, Bud and Peter:

Another total winner. Lyrics really make this one for me, but everything is just top notch, and that lead solo slays. Hard to add to the accolades above—just some steaming blues. Hot!

Keep up the great work!

My best to you all,

Deej

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


We always get a kick outa the toons of that era! No it’s not cheating and we appreciate every word of it!

PB&J, The walk down turnaround is especially effective. I like that rest before the final note. The vocal is once again a master class in blues singing and the little call and response was inspired. The reso was perfect for the fills and the guitar solos were right on the money. Really good blues lyric and the mix is impeccable with everything in it’s own space and no crowding. It is obvious that you three are well versed in the blues, Tom

Thanks Leon ... we are glad it all worked for you. And I could've used a couple of photos of us riding our mountain bikes on those same boulders Janice is on but that would likely confirm what many suspect ... that we are nuts!

Thanks again,

J&B
