Hi All,

Here's something called Greyhound.

I remembered to dream tonight
I remembered tonight
I could see your shadowed smile
In a single stream of light
You run through my mind like a silver blue greyhound
 
I remembered the silver light
I remembered the light
I could see the moon fade out
In a passage from the night
You run through my mind like a silver blue greyhound
 
I remembered to wake tonight
I remembered tonight
I could see the room grow dim
In a broken ray of light
You run through my mind like a silver blue greyhound

You run through my mind like a silver blue greyhound
Silver blue, Silver blue, Silver blue
Silver blue, Silver blue, Silver blue

BIAB Tracks:
1293: Bass, Electric, TexMexCountry Ev 120

Bob,

Nice. A good write. Simple and effective.

Excellent production/arrangement. Excellent mix. You do a great job of using BIAB for a truly "signature sound". A studio-quality singer-songwriter sound... Excellent vocal.

Enjoyed several listens.

(only seen a couple of Greyhounds in the past decade! They used to be everywhere...)

Hello Robert,

I recognize your style right away. The moment I hear the vocals I say "Ah, Bob Dean"!
A very nice song that I enjoyed a lot. It is what Floyd wrote: 'simple and effective'.
But effective in many ways. compact lyrics, a straight melody and with the nice use of that Pedal Steel!

As I said, I enjoyed it a lot.

Hans

Bob, this is such a great job making those Realtracks your own and "fitting" the song so well! Love the mix and the way the vocal is the primary focus of the song (as it should be). Another very good one from you! Thanks, Torrey

"I could see your shadowed smile

Nice!

Great job on the arrangement! I love how it builds. Mix is just top notch too, sounds fabulous through the 'phones.

And of course that signature vocal sound you have smile

Really good, Bob, listened a few times.

Bob, I loved how this started and the simplicity in the backing tracks that you have blended into one outstanding piece of music. Great vocal and lyrics also.

This is your best to date IMHO.
