Hi Folks.
Here is a new one for your consideration. A vocal collaboration with Janice M. and a guest Tamara V. playing sections on domra. Bud recorded Janice's vocals and was very helpful in mixing process. Critical feedback is welcomed. Thank you for giving this time.

Missing Pages

Lyrics:
You got your foot on my heart's throttle.
You are my master - I am your genie in a bottle.
Sun is so hot, the asphalt is melting.
Cannons are quiet when muses belly dancing.
I am falling asleep, counting endless heard of fluffy sheep

Stars will not fall as rocks to the ground,
World's diary missing pages
Mary goes round, round and round
Seconds, hours, days and ages

I am like a snake in a plastic bucket,
you are my master and I am your puppet.
Pick up your phone honey, can't you hear it ringing?
Muses are deaf when cannons are singing
I am falling asleep, counting endless heard of fluffy sheep.

Stars will not fall like rocks to the ground,
Cat will not share the secrets he keeps
Mary goes round, round and round
Making the world dance under your feet.


Tech stuf:
Lyrics-me
Vocals: Janice Merritt & me
Domra- Tamara Volskaya
I am playing short section on melodica.

Loved the groove on this one.
Great vocals and lyrics.
Super backing tracks, great instrumentation
Super mix.

WOW. This is a great listen.

The production is exquisite.
The vocals are excellent. The change from Misha to Janice is seamless and works well.
Misha this is your best vocal ever. Nicely balanced, easy to catch every word.
The domra is well done. (I did have to look that up)

SO very original (like ALL of your work).

Misha, Janice, Tamara and Bud,

Great song, great vocals. I loved everything in it!
Misha, just yesterday I enjoyed your song with Ray and a few hours later you come up with this new fabulous song.
How do you do that?
Anyway, I can only agree with the others here, wow!

Very interesting, mix of instruments, and mix of major and minor modes to create a fully textured performance. Almost sounds like a play, being acted out. I can picture people on a stage moving and singing to this. Fantastic

Thank you for your support and kind words! Ray's tune is fairly recent and Ray is the one behind 95% of it. This tune was in making for quite some time smile

Holy WOW!! You three really make great music together. Misha, you know how much I really enjoy your song writing, and this one is way over the top. Of course, any song with Janice in it STARTS over the top. Seriously, man, whatever song of yours I'm listening to is my favorite, but I think this one is the tops. I love the rhythm and melody. Everything so darn entertaining. And, yeow!. There is so much in the mix and nothing in the way of the magic you three made. So glad you gave Tamara the final word. Superbly splendid!


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is easily your best IMHO. So much really good stuff packed into just over 3 minutes. Kudos to all involved.

It was really refreshing to hear Janice stepping out of her normal comfort zone and she did it so well. Your vocal is really well done too. Easy to listen to and understand as was mentioned.

Man, what a great project.

Misha, Tamara, Janice and Bud,
This is a super-dooper listen! Absolutely superb.
The production is outstanding, and the presentation is top shelf.
Very impressive work from everyone.

What makes this song so exciting that I cannot categorize it, so nice mix of different styles, world music combined with pop in a unique way. Beautiful melody highlighted especially when Janice sings the chorus, nice Chrissie Hynde like tone in her low range. Quite dreamish lyrics, but I wasn't falling asleep while listening.

Enjoyed the instrumentation, domra is a pleasant addition to your band. The scat parts are funny.

Wow, really good Misha! One of your best, no doubt.

Great vocal from both you and Janice! Loved the scat, although for me I would have liked Janice's scat to be at the same volume as yours. But, no one else mentioned that which means I'm wrong eek

Like Floyd I needed to google domra, sounds great.

Excellent!
