This has a nice arrangement, narrative and melody Nigel.
The bass is cool - origins of reggae note choice wise.
The vocal doesn't work for me though...sounds a little like a pastiche verging on parody.

Good, solid blues tune. The vocal reminded me of Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, which is good company. Fine work all the way around.

Sounds great to me, Nigel.

Great sound on all the instruments; love the sound you are getting on the B3 realtrack, did you add processing to that? Good vocal too.

Good song, wish I had written it wink

Strong soulful band, the organ and the electric piano work great together. Enjoyable vocals express nicely the desperate prayer, reminds me of Tom Jones.

Nigel,

Love the organ opening!

Very solid backing track. Drums and Bass sound good. Well mixed.

Cool organ solo, too.

A listening treat.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your comments.

No - the organ is straight "out of the box" BIAB Real Track by Chris Nole (green version) with just a large room reverb added and phrases edited in my DAW.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi Tunemonger,

Really well done with the organ and a nice overall arrangement (vocal reminded me of Amos Garrett).

Right from the opening B3 I was hooked. Great vocal, Nigel. The organ and electric piano work perfectly together. Soulful blues at its best. Excellent band and the perfect mix.
