Hi Janice & Bud,

This composition changes the style we are used to with you. But, excellent musicians and singer, you have understood the reggae style well. It is a pleasant composition that you propose. I appreciated. Well done.

Love ReggaBillyFunk!

Probably the most offbeat tune I have heard by this talented team, and it sounds awesome! Fun, crisp vocals! Cool & funky guitar by Peter (wah wah pedal?). Bud, excellent sound. Enjoyed it a lot!
Time to do an original? I think you got the right ingredients for ReggaBillyFunk genre! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

The romance version of reggae was referred to a Lovers' Rock...this is really cool.
Solid rhythm and that kick replacement works a treat with Sly & Robbie thud and bounce everywhere it should be.
Cool guitar licks, cool vocal licks, cool mixing.
Well done team. I enjoyed it enormously.

Reggae blues, I didn't see this coming from you smile
Janice's voice is perfectly made for reggae (also).
Nicely swinging rhythm bed. Very solid arrangement and the organ and guitar solos are very tasty.

Janice / Bud / Peter,

WOW! This is just great. I love the feel of this - you guys have a unique combination of things going on here that really make this song stand out.

Going back for another couple of listens...

J&B and Peter,
This is excellent; the vocals so relaxed and warm, percussion crisp and that guitar/organ effect so well done...and it really sounds like you had fun.
Very cool.

Hi Bud, Janice and Peter,

Something different but a very amusing song.
I think a song like this fits with the new times in your country.
And...I like the double vocals very much.

I enjoyed it. Especially the production chops.

I like how you find those old songs and update them.

Good work to all involved

Thanks Scott - the organ sound throughout was done through the Helix which whilst it mainly emulates amps and pedals does have a few synth and organ sounds. The guitar sounding guitar was through a wah pedal.

Oh, lordy me, what a great sound. A very creative version of this. I once played this in a band but the girl didn't drip the honey like Janice does. Excellent vocal --no surprise there. Peter is a treat to any studio, especially mixed with a mastering mind like yours, Bud. Sweet honey!

Thanks Misha. We’re glad you liked the genre smile

Thanks for mentioning the mix. The drums and percussion were a bit of a challenge.

We appreciate it all!

Indie-Americana at it's finest. Respectful but very fresh. Clear as a bell mix that highlights every sparkling hit and lick. Really nice stuff.

Another great collaboration. Nice reworking of what I understand to be an old trad song. Nice vocals (I'm glad you didn't try to sound Jamaican - it is much more true sounding). Great mix. And, as always, great lead guitar by Peter. Nice job everyone - the band too!

I've listened to this a few times, and I have to say it's one of the coolest things I've ever heard!

Love the arrangement, just so well done with all the percussive elements.

Janice sounds awesome, both the main vocal and harmonies, and love the tasty leads from Peter.

Great mix!!

Man, this is just so creative on every level.

ReggaBillyFunk? Yeah, I dig it wink

Well done, folks!
