Love the arrangement, just so well done with all the percussive elements.

Janice sounds awesome, both the main vocal and harmonies, and love the tasty leads from Peter.

Great mix!!

Man, this is just so creative on every level.

ReggaBillyFunk? Yeah, I dig it wink

Well done, folks!


Thank you Dave. Your comments really help us feel our little genre mashup worked out. We appreciate you mentioning the percussion as it was an adventure smile. And we appreciate the support!

Nice groove, love your voice, and the harmonies are cool!

I'd never have guessed the organ parts were from a guitar.

Exactly the clear mix that I've come to expect from Bud.

Interesting to read how you've replaced the kicks with a cajon. It works really well here.

I enjoyed several listens through. laugh


Thanks for mentioning the cajon -- Janice did a good thump on it and along with some Waves processing it seemed to work.
She much appreciates the comments about the vocals and, yep, Peter did a cool organ sim for sure. It certainly surprised us!
Thanks for the listens...

That is most appreciated!

Nice treatment of an oldie, though as a former bass player, I would have liked a bit more bass. But it's a whole new genre - ReggaBillyFunk - so what would I know.

Stay safe,
Mike


Thanks for all Mike!

As a mostly former bass player I would like more reggae bass RT's but there are only two choices -- one sw and one ev. And reggae bass was not something I ever played smile

Hi Janice & Bud,

I really liked this song - lovely hypnotic rhythm.

Vocals - perfect for this song.

Instruments - all good.

Claps - unexpected claps on beat 3 when I expected them on beat 2. Is this typical for Reggae music?

Keep up the good work.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi all of you.
I listened to this a while back but can't offer any worthy suggs as it's way out of my genre and I don't know the original.
However, the vocal is as silky smooth as always and it's as punchy as it needs to be.
All I can say is "Well Done".

Vic

Hi Janice, Bud and Peter
I've been having a break from the Internet, so very late to the party. Now I'm back on line, I figured this was the obvious place to start catching up. I'm very familiar with Maria Muldaur's version of this song. Listening to your inspired take it wasn't the first time I've thought that Janice's voice has some of the same alluring qualities as hers. This is brilliant. Right up there with my all time favourite reggaefied country song; Toots and the Maytals' version of 'take me home country roads' ('take me home West Jamaica'). Oh yeah.
Regards,
Leon

All I can say is WOW! (Well, actually I'm just about to say quite a bit more...)

Talk about doing something outside your normal lane! This just proves how versatile you are. Great fresh arrangement. I just wouldn't have thought of doing a reggae version of this song. But it sure does work.

Love the percussion. Love the organ. And Peter, you seem to be channeling a little Clapton on this one.

As always, Janice, your vocals shine. I especially like your harmonies on this one.

Excellent mix, mastering, and arrangement, Bud!

Love this!

Steve

Thanks! Glad you like the handclap. We thought putting it on that beat emphasized the reggae vibe a bit.

In short: a great job from everyone involved - you always set a high standard bar and meet or exceed it every single time. Well done!


Thanks!

We’ve enjoyed the occasional foray into reggae over the years.

We appreciate your thoughts Nigel and are glad you liked it.

We added the handclaps to beat three as it seemed to accentuate the reggae rhythm ... at least within this project. From our somewhat limited reggae listening I don’t know if it typically done. Like Dylan said it seemed like a good idea at the time. smile

Thanks again!

Now that was a fun listen. Something totally different but you three master musicians pulled it off perfectly.
Peter excellent guitar as normal but with a wha wha, fantastic.
Janice fantastic vocal as always and I was pleasantly surprised to here you play the cajon!
Bud fantastic mix as usual.

You all should be super proud of this, excellent work.
