Thanks Misha.
You should know about poetry. Your songs are full of it.
You may be right about the 1.05 but I wanted it to spring out at you.
I'll have another listen though.

vic,
it'd be nice to read your lyric and have a clue which BIAB bits you used.
The jump to a bigger band sound is pretty sudden though foreshadowed, as Misha mentioned, by that louder guitar.
I can hear why you panned the snare in the mix but, for me, it doesn't really fit in nowhere land like that.
Lovely vocal recordings.
I think that backing vocal swamps the lead a little in spots but that's no big deal.
Cool song.

Hi Rayc. Thank you for the comments.
I didn't pan the snare. The drums were ready mixed biab straight out of the box country even.
The rest of the line up was:
592 acoustic bass
3381 fiddle
3155 mandola
3699 3057 3185 acoustic guitars

I forgot to post the lyrics so I'll remedy that now:

Loves me. Loves me not ©2021 Vic Arnold

V1
I know a woman from up the line.
We meet up now and again.
Warms me up like summer shine.
Then cools me down like winter rain.
Sugar sweet and twice as fair.
Like a willow bends and sways.
There's no one like her anywhere.
Seems no method in her ways.
Ch.
But she loves me.
Sometimes she loves me not.
Sometimes cold, sometimes hot.
Blows through my door like a hurricane,
through my mind then out again.
V2
Has her thoughts set on her dreams,
travelling down her winding road.
I help her find the way it seems.
Happy just to share the load.
One day maybe, don't know when,
from her misty far off place,
she'll come back to my arms again.
Spend some time in my embrace.
Ch.
But she loves me.
Sometimes she loves me not.
Sometimes cold, sometimes hot.
Blows through my door like a hurricane,
through my mind then out again.

Cheers
Vic

Reminded us of the great stuff Kevin Welch and Welch with Kieran Kane were doing in the 90's. Well worth checking out Welch's "Patch of Blue" album.

And that is a huge compliment from Janice as she still, as I do, listens to them.

The acoustic band is really good and convincingly mixed as per a live act.

The write is chock full of good lines and your vocal delivered them most excellently.

Nice!

Hi Mario.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.
I mostly only play live. BIAB behaves itself better. :-)
