This was really wonderful to hear. I'd be curious to know what Style and RealTracks you used for it if you ever feel like sharing! It's always cool to see what people use as a jumping off point.

Great vocal by Susan mixed clear as a bell and Carmen's sax topped off a swinging foot tapping production. Very enjoyable Nigel

Hi Nigel,

Loved the intro with the sax! He can play, and Susan can certainly sing.

Good song, enjoyed the listen!

Nigel,

The vocal and sax shine. Good clear mix (surprisingly loud for Soundcloud).

Good listen.

"I never felt like this. I guess I've never been in love." Excellent music, lyrics and so well sung. A good write and production, Nigel. Man, you surround yourself with some super talent. "Susan de Jong (vocals) and Carmel Courtney (sax)" really add some special talent.

Hi Floyd,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes - even on the original album this was a loud track. I guess it has something to do with the mastering engineer weaving his magic.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi Nigel,

I doubt she never fell in love. With such vocals and this performance at least all listeners must have fallen in love with her and the band! So lot to choose from...
Good song!

Enjoyed it a lot,
Hans
