    New Video - "Unchained" (Rock)

    Grem: Hey Michael, 😂LOL, I know exactly what your mean! And, then I drive my wife crazy again when we're in the car, playing the same song over and over until we get to where we're going! It takes the patience of a saint to be married to a musician!😁 Have a good one, Grem! Bob

    New Video - "Unchained" (Rock)

    Beagle: Hey, Beags, how's it going, buddy? Hope you're doing well!😃 Thanks so much for checking out the video and the kind words! Yep, I actually shot the video footage last fall and unfortunately didn't get enough correct footage for the guitar solo, and also had some problems with lighting and angles in other parts, so I kind of piecemealed the clips together try to make it work as best I could. So, sorry, no vocal shots in this one. Thanks again for checking it out, and your new SG post, "You", is excellent, you, Sean and Mike always do a great job!👍 Have a good one, Reece! Bob

    Hey, Beags, Another excellent song with a great message, excellent performances by all three of you, and a nice clean, fresh sounding mix!😀 The vocals and harmonies were outstanding, and I really loved that great guitar tone and killer solo. Excellent musicianship as always, the three of you make a really great team!👍 Nice work, guys, have a good one! Bob

    Baby Boomer Blues

    Hey, Freddy, I'm late to the party on this one, but this is a really fun classic blues song, and it sure sounds like you had a good time putting it together!😀 As always from you, clever, funny lyrics, great playing and excellent vocals and harmonies. I love that crystal clear lead tone, and the blues harp solo was great! This mix sounds right on the money for the vintage blues genre, and, LOL, 😁 I think just about all of us here on the forum can relate to the song's theme! Excellent job, Freddy, cool song!👍 Have a good one, buddy! Bob

    Hi, Kaustub, Beautiful job on this gorgeous cinematic orchestral soundtrack!😀 Excellent composition and arrangement, great playing, and the choice of instruments sounds perfect for the piece. The mix is clear, wide, well textured and pro sounding, and I could easily imagine hearing this as a motion picture soundtrack! Fantastic work!👍 Best Wishes, Bob

    New Video - "Unchained" (Rock)

    Grem: Hey, Grem, How are you, buddy? Hope you're having a great weekend!😀 Big thanks for taking time to check out the "Unchained" video for me, and also for hanging in there to check out "Carry Me" afterwards. I sincerely appreciate your good input and observations, and also your encouraging comments! I'm also grateful to hear that the Youtube mix seems to be translating fairly well on the small work speakers. I always try as best as I can to check mixes on everything from laptop speakers to PC speakers, old boom boxes, to TVs, car stereos and high powered audiophile systems, and also check them in mono. LOL, sometimes I drive myself, (and my poor wife😁), crazy trying to interpret what's happening on all the different listening systems and environments, so I really appreciate the comment about the JVC speakers.👍 Thanks again, Grem, greatly appreciated, have a good one! Bob

    Mona Lisa Cover (featuring Bacco on vocals)

    Hey, Mark, It's absolutely FANTASTIC to see you finally made it over here to the new forum!😀 This amazing cover is absolutely outstanding!👍 As always, you did a spectacular job on recreating all the elements of the original song and arrangement, but added a really cool modern vibe, and your excellent production skills really shine through on this radio-ready mix. Outstanding performances on all the instrumentation, as usual from you, I love that creamy guitar tone and tasty playing, and Bacco's vocals were phenomenal! This is probably one of the first songs I ever heard in my life, at around 2 or 3 years old, because my parents loved Nat King Coal and had all of his albums on 16 RPM vinyl albums. Believe it or not, I think they're still all packed in boxes up in my attic! This song brings back a lot of warm memories from my childhood.😀 Anyway, it's always great to hear something new from you, and really good to see you around on the new forum. I'm looking forward to hearing some more soon, don't be a stranger, buddy! Have a good one, Mark! Bob

    Head in a Basket - Constructive mix feedback welcome!

    Hey, This is a really cool modern metal rocker with dynamite playing and excellent vocals!😀 To me, the mix sounds pretty close for the genre, but I think you might be right about possibly backing off the compressor a bit to give it a little more breathing room and dynamics, and then adding a touch of low end punch to fill it out some. Great song and band, killer job on all the performances, nicely done!👍 Have a good one! Bob

    The Eyes of Autumn

    Hey, Wook, This is a pretty cool sounding piece of experimental electronica!😀 Great choice of synths and a nicely textured mix, and I agree about it having a cinematic vibe, and could easily picture it as part of a film soundtrack.👍 The drawing is pretty cool too, and a bit ominous. I always love when musical inspiration sparks up from different media, events and elements, and how a single glance at art work, a book, a movie or even a look at the sky or a scenic panorama can inspire a complete story and musical piece. Good stuff!😀 Nice work, my friend, and have a great day! Bob

I truly appreciate you taking time to check out the video for me, and also for your very kind comments!😀 By the way, very nice work on your new patriotic song and video, great song and very important message!👍 Thanks again, John, it's always great to hear from another Pennsylvania musician!😀 Have a great week!

    Same old song and dance

    Hey, Charlie, Fantastic video, brother! Dynamite playing, excellent tone and smooth fluidity!😀 This is one of my all time favorites. My most recent cover band opened with that song 70% of the time for the twelve years we were together, and actually, way back when "Get Your Wings" was first released, my high school garage band played it, along with "Lord of the Thighs" and "Train Kept a Rollin". I never realized Dick Wagner played the solo, although I liked a lot of his stuff with both versions of Alice Cooper, and one of my bands played Lou Reed's version of "Sweet Jane" which Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter also played on. He was always a fantastic hired gun studio musician! Anyway, excellent work, Chuck, great video!👍 Have a good one, buddy! Bob

    America, Have We Forgotten? Song & Video

    Hi, John, You've got a really well done, patriotic song with a deep message and great meaningful lyrics!😀 Nicely written, arranged and performed, the keyboards are outstanding, and the mix sounds right on the money.👍 I saw your more detailed post yesterday, but at the time I couldn't listen and reply because I was away from the studio and reading the forum on my phone. I just want to say I agree with you 100 percent. Tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of my father, and many other brave fathers, sons, brothers and uncles landing on the beach in Normandy, and giving their all to allow us the right to fly our flag proudly and freely. I would feel sorry for any idiot like the one in the article that you mentioned, that would dare try to rip the flag off the front of my house! Let's just leave it at that.😀 Anyway, nice job on the song and video, great work, John! Best wishes, Bob
