Dear Alan,

okay, I don't know much about Country (although I learned quite a lot here in the forum), but I think I can tell wether or not a song is good and wether or not it's presented well. And this one sure is on all levels.

A good and tasteful composition fitting those typical Country lyrics like a glove. An excellent backing track.

AND: I think there's definitely no need for you to be shy about your vocals. You don't have to sing like Frankie-boy to transport the soul and the feel of a song - I really (!!!) like the way you sing, that sometimes broken voice. To me that is far more impressive than some of those 'glossy' voices.

We hope so much that Di is recovering and that you stand these hard times.

All the very best to both of you,

Stefan

Hi Alan,

You certainly nailed the classic country vibe with this one!

And you are being to hard on yourself about the vocal, sounds pretty good to me. Nice vibrato!

Enjoyed!

Al,

Sweet country tune—very classic 70’s country. Could hear some of the old time country crooners slaying this song. Great melody and lyrics—wonderfully done.

Hope all is well in your world,

Deej

HI Stefan ...

Always a treat to hear from you. I played country music in several different bands for about 50 years. I made my first dollar (actually, $8.00) in July of 1963.

Thank you so much for your very nice comments. I'm a pretty good guitarist but a mediocre vocalist, at best. If I had to depend on my singing to make a living, I'd have died from starvation many years ago. But, I'm delighted you enjoyed this one.

Di and I think of you guys often. Wishing the very best for Maha and hope you are well, too. Take care, my friends.

Alan

Thank you so much! I grew up playing guitar in the early and middle 60s. Country music was all my father allowed on the radio. Plus, he was a vocalist in several country bands. So, I have a good background to rely upon. I appreciate those nice words! Wishing you the best ...

Hi Deej!

Good to hear from you. Glad you liked it. And yeah, it's pretty much Classic Country! And there's nothing wrong with that! Take care and be safe.

Alan,
Country or New Age, your arrangements shine. This got a solid bed which sounds universal to me and with a few light moves it could easily be turned into anything from a slow ballad or a faster pop rock. Nice revival! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Hi Misha ....

Thanks for the listen and really nice comments. And yeah, there are many possible avenues to take with this one. But I specifically wrote it as a country ballad as I was playing lead guitar in a country band.

Glad ya liked it! Thanks for telling me - much appreciated. Take care ...

Alan

Hi Mike ...

It's great to have you active on the boards. Haven't seen much of you recently. But, I was absent, for the most part, the past two months. That might have something to to do with it. wink

Thank you for all those very nice words. I appreciate all that! Wishing you the very best. Take care ...

Alan

Indeed, the vocalist does shine - his Sunday shoes once a week! laugh

Hello jpt3 ...

Many thanks for your nice words. I grew up playing classic country. Although I like a lot of the new stuff, I still hold classic country near and dear. Glad you enjoyed it. And yeah, there's not much of this being written in Nash-Vegas these days. Damned shame!@

Taker care.

Alan

Ace lyrics and tune.

"Green eyes and raven hair" ----I had one like that too.

Sounds like hit material to me.

What a nice recording, Alan. Took me right back to a special period in American music and in the lives of anyone who happened to be listening at that time.
The line, "We reach a certain age at which what's left are photographs and memories; and, for some of us, photographs smile "
Seriously, great mood setter.

Hi Ezekiel ...

I have one like that right now! But I wrote this about 30 years before I met her. Fate???

I'd take "Hit" status on this! Thanks for the uplifting remark! Much appreciated.

Best to you. Take care ...

Alan

Hi Ed ...

Why, thank you so much for all those were nice comments! I'm approaching that age you mentioned. I'll be 75 in March. But, so far, my memory is as good as it ever was. But, who knows what tomorrow brings? I appreciate your kindness very much. I played this kind of music in a couple of different bands for many, many years.
Wishing you the very best. Take care ...

Alan
