Janice, Bud, Leon & Peter,

Sonic art...

I love everything about this production. It's hard to believe that this is not a pro-cut on an album. It's just so good.

I'm a fan and would buy the vinyl, CD & stream - EXCELLENT!

Hi Janice & Bud,

Nice intro with the mandolin. The chord sequence is well chosen with Janice's perfect voice. It's pretty and pleasing to the ear. I appreciated.

Kindly regard

Lovely recording. I can't tell the difference between the "real" instruments and the BIAB "real" instruments. I think that's due to the superb mix. Everything is so clear. Great collaboration you guys. Top notch work.

Hi Janice, Bud and Bandboys Peter and Leon,

A lovely song you made, I liked it immediately.
I know everyone tells you that, but I am pretty serious now on this!
What nice you could make the band with all bits and pieces from others.
When I heard that mandolin I thought it was a Greek Ballalaika and your song would become a Greek one (where they dance with enormous pom poms on their shoes, the men wear dresses and your crockery ends shattered in the fireplace),. But it didn't!
It was highly entertaining with a very strong performance of Janice. Your voice sounds so very clear in this mix. I am hesitating a bit on my compliment (because I want to avoid 'your best ever'), but these are really very clear vocals!

There is one minor thing: all the songs you sang lately,Janice are dealing with not trustable men. Do you want to talk about that then call me. I am very good at listening (I think).
No, I'm kidding, but that is because this song made me act like this (a Dutch custom).
I enjoyed it a lot!

Hans

The whole team is on top of their game here. A "complete package". There is a "smoothness" that belies the difficulty require to achieve it...

A "pleasant" warning-there-is-trouble-ahead song - both lyric and melody.

As others have said, it is difficult to know where RTs end and "user added" tracks start. Seamless. Peter is doing some of his best work here. Seamless.

Do we need to talk about how good Janice is? Of course we do!! SO, SO Smooth. Always in the pocket.

The mix is so good it's hard to even talk about it. It is just simply "right". In all regards. Each element adding to the overall sound and nothing "sticking out". SO smooth!!...

Pro stuff.

Very pretty song. Lovely vocal Janice. Peter the mandolin is very cool. The acoustic was very tasteful dancing around the vocal. Loved the lyric. And Bud a perfect production which I am learning is an art in itself. +1 to what Floyd said "the complete package. Well done !!!

Just a quick word about the mandolin. I originally dusted off my mandolin tuned it and played around a bit.
Not being overly happy I put it away and picked up the guitar.
I then played around withe my Line 6 Variax.
Whilst it does not have a mandolin emulation it does have a good 12 string guitar.
I then loaded a Gibson mandolin impulse response on top of the 12 string (don't ask me how these work) and tuned it like a mandolin. Sounded pretty much like my mandolin - I did however cheat and re-tuned it as a guitar (I know my way around a guitar tuning better -although I mainly played tremolo on one string).\

No miking required.

As good as it gets I think wink

Leon, great write!

Janice .... well, always great! Just a treat to hear you sing.

Peter, top notch work as usual, always right in the pocket. Mandolin sounds great, thanks for the notes on how you did that.

Great mix, Bud!

Well done all, enjoyed!

Exquisite band, sounds so very clear and balanced. Extra fine lyric delivered with that advice-giving yet compassionate warmth of Janice's voice. Loved the little fills shared between mando and guitar throughout the body of the piece. When they came together for the instrumental solos, some kind of magic happened. Just outstanding all round.

Everything to love in a package worth taking home.
The melody astride that progression - both are wonderful.
The faux mandolin is terrific...I've used a 12 string to do the same in the past though no impulses...wish I had em.
Top shelf from a top shelf REAL and Real band.
Bud, your ears and taste shine through the mix.

Janice, your voice is outstanding with so many different styles. You could sing a phone book and each name would have its own special feel. Peter, what a wonderful talent. You know I'm a fan of your guitar playing, and that mandolin is perfect. Leon, man, you can really write. Outstanding lyrics. Bud, nobody puts it together better.

I was in a band in the 70s named Just Passin' Through. Everyone but me in the group went on to be quite famous in the some music circles.

Hans, thank you from all four of us. Bud and I thought Peter’s mandolin and guitar parts were pretty special.
I (Janice) keep smiling when I think of those Greek dancers with their giant pom poms on their shoes and I’m pretty sure we’ve seen some of those guys in a travel show. smile

The imagery in Leon’s lyric was so vivid for me and I’m quite pleased to see you thought the end result of it all was lovely. When I put a melody to Bud’s lyric I don’t worry too much since we have a mind meld but I rarely make a melody to someone else’s lyric and so am always a little anxious.

And about those untrustworthy men I keep dealing with, you know, I may just have to call you for some therapy!
I tell my sisters that the blues are full of those guys but apparently they follow me around to other genres too.
smile Fortunately, as Bud says, I'm a method actor when it comes to singing and those men are gone after the song is finished and we have been most happily married for 40 years!

J&B

P.S. We recently watched a travel show on the Netherlands and your pretty home town of Haarlem was featured.
