floyd, Janice & Bud,

It's a song that uses a minor key, which is rare for you.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and duets with Janice are great.
The mix using effects very well, also perfectly directs this song.
It sounds very professional.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Thanks, Dan...

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


Thanks, Torrey....

Top shelf in every way!

Robert


Thanks, Robert....

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".

Thanks, Janne...

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.




"Your browser does not support the audio element." - is a message I pick up when I copy the lyric from my web site. Just forgot to delete it...

I find that most commercial releases these days have a small DR. And typically the vocals are really squished to have almost no DR. Intentionally. The vocal sounds the same from start to finish. It helps the vocal sit in the mix. A lot of folks would benefit from doing something similar...

Thanks for stopping by!!

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

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

Great one.

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


Appreciated, Tom....
