Hey Stephen - just tried to listen to your track but Soundcloud says that you haven't uploaded any tracks yet (is it possible that you have uploaded it as a private file?).

Look forward to hearing it.

Cheers

John

Great stuff! Love the harmonica and guitar playing. Great mix. How about some insight as to who's doing what on this great rendition! :D

Thanks for the feedback .the drums are ezydrums , the horns are native instrument session horns (using some of the played phrases and some of my own)and the harp is by a friend of mine .the vocals , guitars, mixing etc is all me.
the first versions of the song had a strummed acoustic guitar in it , as that was how I wrote the song ,but I thought a piano (ezykeys) would be a better fit .
cheers

Hey Steve that was really worth listening to. I liked the positioning of the vocals in the mix (including the subtle and not too overdone backing vocals). It would be interesting to hear the acoustic guitar version purely for comparison purposes - I can imagine just guitar and vocals but I suspect that with the horns, drums etc. that the keys are better.

My only (very small) criticism is that the track ends rather abruptly.

Looking forward to the next stuff!

Cheers

John
