Nicely done all round and the mix sounds good.

Catchy chorus.

Thanks, Peter!

Minor keys always call to me, much more so than major. Exception is blues, I like major and minor equally well for I-IV-V stuff. Thanks, Tangmo!

This cut captures the broad presence of rock; meaning, no matter where you got off the ship anywhere in the world at any time, you'd likely hear this song, playing away. smile

Good work with the organ. Sounds like something you'd hear with Joe. Hard to get that vibe from those RT's but you did it well with using both variations.

We enjoyed the listens! Excellent mix.

J&B



For me Reese with Joe, and before with Stevie, is the ultimate B3 player. I've seen him perform with both those guys. Bass, Drums, B3, Guitar ... perfect band!

Thanks, guys!

I did not hear prior version, but mix is excellent to my ears. Really like this one. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.


Mix is pretty similar, mostly brought the drums up a hair. Thanks for the comment on the vocal, singing is very new to me and I don't have much confidence.

"L.Cohen on serious steroids", LOL!

Nice tweaking of the organ.
I can hear the Cohenness...song wise it'd fit his I'm Your Man album tone wise it's another beautiful best.
The vocal phrasing and chords remind me of a great power pop band you'd not have encountered:
https://youtu.be/FRazvQ8Pai0

EXCELLENT!


Thanks very much, Ray!

You are right, never heard of that band but I like them, good energy. And yes, similar song, just more pop.

Love that vocal, Dave. I remember when you were JUST (ha) a guitar player. Very moving song, man. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. I thoroughly enjoy gassing up this buggy and groovin' along the happy highway. Whoa! Lonely Nights started right after this one. Dang, you were NEVER "just a guitar player". That opening phrase is outstanding.

Hi Dave and Marty,



Guys, this is outstanding, however I look at it.

Marty, I can hear the bass so easily and clearly but it never overshadows the mix. This is exactly the sort of sound that I chase but never manage to achieve in my own mixes. Awesome stuff!

Dave, your guitar playing is first-first-class and your vocals fit this genre really, really comfortably. As always, the minute I heard your mix starting to play, my skin turned an envy-green color. You get SUCH a good sound with everything you do.

All the best,
Noel

The guitar work really stands out, both the rhythm and the lead. The rhythm guitar moves the song with a simmering energy complemented by Marty's pulsing bass. That lead solo was pro all the way. Loved it.

I'm always happy when I can come up with a cool, song specific rhythm part instead of just generic strumming, so thanks for picking up on that!

First of all, what a great hook/title. Makes me think of my two fav cars I owned long ago and far away. And how much I used to enjoy driving them. smile Sweet guitar and the mix sounds good on my speakers.
