Hi All,

Here's something I wrote a few years ago, but never properly recorded. Something about an old cowboy, lost love, the outskirts of San Antonio and a California dream...

San Antonio

In my mind today I saw you
Running wild through the summer
In the heat of the day
I can feel California
Ready to mourn ya
Headed where the dust winds blow
San Antonio San Antonio

In our days and nights together
Living hard through the winter
In the cold of the night
I left for California
Ready to mourn ya
Shiver when the desert turns cold
San Antonio San Antonio

In my old blue jeans and leather
Driving fast through the seasons
In the mist of the morning
I was in California
Ready to mourn ya
Wishing on the day growing old
San Antonio San Antonio

Classic Bob Dean. What more need be said?

A good write.
Good vocal (a signature sound).
And what is becoming "The Robert Dean Band" signature sound.
Steady as a rock. Quality.

Excellent.

There was definitely a sense of good memories and longing in the lyrics that was quite clear to me, and I think that you did an excellent job with portraying that particular set of emotions. Well done! Thanks for sharing.


Cheers,
Ember

Hi Bob,

This is a nice, emotional song, you made. And a very consistent 'Dean's Sound'. I read Floyd said something of this kind too!
The bariton guitar works very well in this song. Especially in combination with your emotional, somewhat thin voice. I like that.
It's a pity it was lying on that shelf for so long. You have more on that shelf? Let us hear them.

Have a nice day,
Hans

The tremolo baritone was slightly muddy for the 1st notes of the intro but that settled quickly.
Fabulous band sound & mix.
Cool.


Cheers

Oh, yeah, that baritone sets the table so well. Excellent lyrics and vocal, as always, Bob. I keep thinking your singing SAD Antonio.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi rsdean,

Pleasant atmosphere created by the mix and your voice. There is emotion and the instrumentalization make it a good composition.

Knew when I so the song title it was going to be one of your classic tune. Awesome tune. Loved the tremolo guitar intro. Super vocal and lyric as always. Well done.

Ah yes...the baritone guitar featured band returns to the stage.

Signature sounds are cool indeed but you always add something special to each one.

Your imagery and vocal present like a film...so easy to see it all.

Excellent!

Guitar intro was a little bit too much for me, after that, classic sound by you all the way. I'm a big lyrics fan, probably why I like your stuff so much. Great job again.
