Hi All,

Here's something short, simple and folky - this is called Ricochet.

There’s an echo in my room
Autumn on the mountain side
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet

The black shadow from your pen
Paper words fade to grey
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet

The radio plays just for me
Mind fixed on the songs refrain
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet

Blackbirds on a winter wire
Somehow keep the cold at bay
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet

There’s an echo in my room
Spring rain down the mountain side
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet
Settle down boy
She’s a ricochet

BIAB Tracks:

As always - thanks for listening!

Hi Bob,

This is a good song and well played.

Vocals - well sung and I like the "close mic" effect however I would take a bit of treble and compression off to expose more of your natural voice.

Well done.

Best Regards
Nigel

Bob,

Great images, as always. You have a great "way with words".

I like it. It has "stuck with me". Always a good sign...

There is a good deal is sibliance to the vocal (not something I recall in any of your previous songs).
It stole a bit of my attention as the song progressed.

Floyd,

Thank you. Yes, I was really up against the mic on this one. I also tried some new processing things, but not sure I like the result. I also think the vocal is a bit too hot.

It reads well.
Really appropriate backing.
yes, the close mic'd vocals seem to be triggering a few things but it's still sounds lovely.


Cheers

Great lyrics, song and vox. Classic sound of your own. Can't beat that.

Lovely song, Bob, with your signature sound that I love.

Only complaint, other than the sibilance which you already know about, is that it is too short smile

Ditto what Dave said. We want more. Again, not a bad thing to leave them wanting more. I won't beat you with the sibilance stick, Bob, although I probably just did. You know I'm a big fan of your vocals and this one is no exception. Still, the "simple and folky" worked really well, but the short didn't cut it. Great song!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is one cool song!

In addition to the fantastic lyric writing (love the concept), the melody and rhythm draw me in.

I enjoyed this.

Bob,
Nice smooth ballad with great set of lyrics. Ace performance and mix! Listens well. I am not sure if you remixed it or not from initial posting, vocals did not sound hot to me.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.
