Hi Everybody,

This is a track off of my just finished album "The Westerly Sessions Vol. II". Just to let you know, I sang the lead vocal with an AT4040 through an ART MPA Gold preamp. As always, any comment or critiques are welcome, and thanks for listening.

Here it is:

Here's the stripped-down acoustic version:

An instrumental blues album sounds like a good idea - I'm not sure if I can come up with enough material for such a project.  BTW, I'm good ole' USA,  but I do read the Economist😄

Doug, the song came across as bluesy to me (and with that title it should be  😀)  This one goes to the top 5 of your songs posted here. Well done.
Would be cool to hear you play some fingerpicking traditional blues if you're into that.

Well done Doug!  I listened to both versions and enjoyed both.  I am generally an old style Blues, R 'n R, rockabilly, jump Blues, etc. kind of guy.  Being such - electric is what I enjoy most.  However, I really like you acoustic version of this song.  It just seemed to fit the title, lyrics, melody, and instrumentation like a good pair of gloves.

Nice one indeed!

Hi Freddy - I was wondering if some would prefer the acoustic version - thanks for listening and for your comments.

Thanks Nigel - I like both versions, but the fully produced one I think I like a bit more.

Thoughts as I listen on my Sony headphones...

  • Super rich bass!
  • "Could I have been a better man" - it sounded like you were trying for a vocal counterpoint to the drum beat, but it was a bit off in my ear
  • Just my personal preference, would like more support, more depth in the vocal. Again, just my preference. This works for this song.
  • Nice solo at 2:57 - rich sound. I'd maybe back it off a bit in the mix
  • Nice vocal doubling on the chorus

Good stuff.
