    Hey John, thanks for that -- Allan.

  6. Hey Freddy, I close my eyes and listen to this and suddenly it's over -- I open my eyes and I'm shocked that I'm *not* sitting in some roadside joint -- that's very disorienting mate -- :) -- another good one from you -- Allan.

    I have to echo the above positive comments concerning your vocals and harmonies.  The lyrics are also wonderfully optimistic and are complimented by some  very nice melodic, cheery music.  I love the guitar accents and leads in this song.

    Great stuff Allan!

    Freddy, thanks so much for those kind comments -- I'm glad you like my 'lil 'ol demo (...and the like) -- Allan.

    Another good one from you Allan - I always enjoy your vocal - on this one you reminded me a bit of Chris Isaac.

    I liked the snare as well - it fit the mood of the song.

    Nifty lead guitar playing - nice job there.

    Hey thanks Douglas -- yeah, way back in the way back when I attended Acme College of Demo Knowledge, I majored in no-autotune...and the like...and minored in snappy snare sound.  So, good catch on your part...  :)   --Allan.

    this is a good track - got a real sixties vibe to it

    Agree with Jack re the harmony

    Like it, good job


    Hey thanks for listening -- believe it or not, those harmonies are exactly what I wanted -- go figure, right? -- Allan.

    Allan . . . very well written song, and I always dig your vocals and harmonies. You have a characteristic "slide up" in the vocals of many of your songs that I like. I'm not hearing the 60's thing others have mentioned, for me, it needs more tambourine to sound 60's . . . or, more cowbell to sound 70's ? Lol.

    My mix preference here would be to have the vocals lower and the instruments  slightly louder, drum balance is good. On headphones it sounds more balanced, but listening on smaller speakers, I hear the vocals standing out a lot, but alas, they sound great, so no real offense there.

    Hey, I'm pleased you like the song and the vox -- and, thanks for the suggestions -- much appreciated. -- Allan.

    Groovy tune,  so clear  , I can hear so many influences in there , nice one

    Hey, it's also groovy that you listened and commented -- much thanks -- Allan.

    Great sounding 1960's pop-ish sound.  Your vocals, harmonies and BGV,s sound very good indeed.   To my fossilized ears the melody and vocals have a wee bit of a McCartney sound (a complement indeed!).  Good work Allan!

    Well, Freddy, a wee bit of McCartney is certainly weeeeee enough for me -- thanks for that and thanks for listening mate -- Allan.

    Lots of stuff to like in this one. As always with your stuff, there are great vocals supporting a good melody over some truly interesting harmony. Sometimes I hear a strong Atlanta Rhythm Section vibe in there. Great playing everywhere you look. As for the mix, you always do a great job getting a "modern/vintage" vibe going with all the parts, nice and clear but smooth too. To my ears some additional work needs to be done to get all the parts to gel together better, but I'm not sure what that would be. Perhaps some light compression on the sub-mixes?  Finally, that is one groovy bass line, bro!

    Hey Kevin, thanks for those complimentary comments -- much appreciated.  And, I'm pleased you like my bass playing! -- Allan.
