A slight memory fold back & I was more than ready for the song.

While Janice's harmony is excellent in the chorus it's sneakily, perfectly balanced in the first verse.

A very cool narrative and a melody that lifts it.
The delay on the guitar under the steel after the outro is lovely.

Heaps of detail in this and it'll take repeat plays to hear and appreciate.
1st listen - wonderful!


Appreciated, ray....

Love the melody, GREAT vocal from you, and then when Janice comes in .... goosebumps.

Excellent write! Lots of great lines, "I got boots older than most of them" made me smile.

My new floyd favorite I think, well done you three.


Thanks, Dave....

Floyd and the gang,

To start off, that steel really is a mood setter! The chorus is powerful!

I like the little muted guitar parts in the second verse and Janice's backing really serves this song well!

"i got boots older than most of them" Love that line!

You just keep cranking out one great tune after another and they are always inspiring to many of us!

Thanks, Torrey

Floyd, Janice & Bud,
I don`t know how you do it, Floyd, but your vocals ( delivery and processing) are still getting better. This is a powerful write and the expression you bring (along with the ache in Janice`s harmonies) makes for wonderful listening.
Top shelf in every way!

Robert

Kind of rainy autumn feeling in the lyrics, and I love the melancholy mood, still the chorus has positive direction "sun on my face, wind at my back". Beautiful intro, the steel guitar fits perfectly with the chording. Drums and the muted guitar are introduced nicely. Enjoyed the vocals and especially how Janice's sadness oozing harmonies still manage to deliver the "sun on my face".

Hey this is an incredibly well-mixed tune! Loved it!

I am not sure what this message in the lyrics means though:

Your browser does not support the audio element.
THE RIGHT TRACK

etc...

too long in this town, too long in shadow

Anyway, I tried out Audiolens for the first time with this streaming tune and got this curve.

Cool!

Keep 'em coming folks! Y'all sound great! Always a vocal buffet of gorgeousness.

p.s. I ran a Luke Combs song through IKM's MasterMatch and ran this one through as well..

Yours has a LUFS of about 12, and a nice Dynamic Range of 10 to 11 (as I remember), which the same way I master my tunes. And I see your peak is -0.3. I often do the same.

The Luke Combs song "The Kind of Love We Make" also peaks at -.3 but has a LUFS of 7 and a DR of 3.7.


I guess it is mastered for the speaker set ups in Dodge RAMS but I enjoy songs mixed and mastered like this, FWIW.

I'm sure most of what you do to make your tracks sound so good is over my head, but I certainly can appreciate the end result. Superb work as usual.

Your music fits Bud's lyric so well.

Janice's echo vocal lines add another dimension to the song.

I really like the band. It evokes the lonely traveler.

Great one.

F,J&B, I knew I would be in for a treat when I hit play. I wasn't wrong. The production is top notch. The write is terrific. The vocals are stunning. What a great choice for Janice to echo those two lines. That is the surprise filling inside the treat! I don't think anything can be improved on. Fantastic job by all, Tom
