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.


Thanks for the support Ray. We’re glad you liked it and thanks again for the thoughts on the drums/percussion.

Late to this party!

Actually, I had a listen on Monday, but that bass started rattling my ears, so I thought I should wait until my allergies cleared up a bit. wink

Nice groove, love your voice, and the harmonies are cool!

I'd never have guessed the organ parts were from a guitar.

Exactly the clear mix that I've come to expect from Bud.

Interesting to read how you've replaced the kicks with a cajon. It works really well here.

I enjoyed several listens through. laugh

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

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.

Janne


Thanks Janne. Not so sure we saw it coming either! smile

Now that is quite the production with some very complex elements. Love the sound you all got on this one. Pete has again contributed his instrumental expertise and Janice her flawless vocals to make this unique and pleasurable recording.

Top drawer track as usual - loved the vocals, production and PeterF's work.
Nice treatment of an oldie, though as a former bass player, I would have liked a bit more bass. But it's a whole new genre - ReggaBillyFunk - so what would I know.

Stay safe,
Mike

An interesting and totally unexpected musical take on this, but the accomplished musicians therein were more than up to the task. As always the vocals and mix were cherry on this. Primo work!

Thanks for everything!

Janice, Bud and Peter,

Your raggae is perfectly fits the traditional bluegrass/folk tune.
Janice's expressiveness is fully demonstrated in this song.
The arrangement and the mix are excellent.
Very creative!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Great, nuanced singing from Janice - as she always does. The reggae background is wonderful, too ... the guitar playing is perfect for this kind of track. I didn't know the tune (what's new there? haha), but the interpretation is top-notch. Production is crisp and clear to my ears. In short: a great job from everyone involved - you always set a high standard bar and meet or exceed it every single time. Well done!

Thanks! We’re glad it worked for you. Having played the song in a bluegrass band it was both fun and interesting to try and take it to a place.
