Hi Nigel,

I absolutely love that introduction!!! The organ is brilliant!

And then you started singing... WOW! Your song and your presentation are super fantastic! This genre and your talent fit perfectly... just like James Bond and his bespoke suits.

Everything about this song makes me think of the colour green and the word "envious". You truly have written and created a really fine work!

All the very best,
Noel

Straight up blues, but with organ instead of lead guitar.

Excellent arrangement, well sung, flawless mix.

That's the good stuff, all right! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Too much fun. My tapping foot just knocked my space heater over, you're burning down the house.

Vocally this reminds me of some of John Mayall's solo stuff from the mid 70s.
That organ is cool.
Do you have a VST to play with the Leslie speeds?
Leslie speed & volume pedal variations seem to be the biggest give away of a programmed or machine generated track.
This song is cool and your voice is believable all the way through.

This is bluesy and cool.
I think your voice is perfect for this, and the Hammond RT is sweet icing on the cake... Excellent blues song...

Every one of your songs is the kind I'd say to my bandmates back in the day, "Let's do this one!!" Such a good song, Nigel, and your voice is perfect --even outstanding. The lyrics are also perfect for the genre. Yes, the organ sounds amazing. Excellent choiice.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Great overall sound. The band does a great job backing you up.

Top notch vocal and a nice way to highlight the organ RT.

Enjoyed it.

Hi Ray,

Thanks for your comments.

I don't think the new Organ Real Tracks are played on a real Hammond Organ with Leslie Cabinet.

However I would be interested to hear from PG Music as to what instrument was used.

Best Regards
Nigel

Oh. My. Goodness.
That's hot.

I can now play around with some Deep Purple kind of blues...

That's so good. Everything about it. Yeah, got to admit the one shortcoming was the lack of a smoking guitar but..... Nicely done
