Lyrics
Walking down these dark streets
With the rain pouring down
Got nothing in my pockets
Got holes in my shoes.

Bottle in paper bag
I take another drink

Don't miss my baby
Just the blues in the night.

Next bar I walk in to.
I'm gonna start a fight
See who gets bloodied tonight

Streets on fire
burning up my heart

Got no crown or glory
Got no sense of time
Since my baby left me
I'm about to lose my mind

Don't miss my baby
Just the blues in the night.

Just the blues in the night...
yeah, that about sums it up. Great vibe and atmospherics. Your sleet storm inspired a reality check that works for me. Nice guitar stabs and licks.
Got no crown or glory
Got no sense of time

Well this is different Pat
But I like it man. It give me the feeling of wandering around in the late night hours with only the spirits of lost love to keep you company. That guitar sounds for all the world like a moaning spirit.

Very cool track my friend with a lot of feeling to it. Kudos Pat

Super contrapuntal rhythm
in the beginning. Love the slight drag of the guitar just behind the beat - creates a cool effect. The vocals are just great - and the guitar coming in behind the vocal phrases really adds flavour. Doorsy - but with an orbit signature!

depths of dark blues...
Excellent blues-osity going on here. I would probably not have the bass & drums panned so hard out to the edges, but that's a minor headphone thing. Great playing guitar/bass, and great low-energy singing, perfect for this. I like the echoey reverb on the strat, and the way it rumbles in and out, like an angry storm. Cool!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Sweet mixing ..

.. I loved what you did here with stereo field placement ... sounded great in my monitors: drum in L, bass in R, vocals C and guitars drifting around.... really suited the song. Gritty as they come .. solid tune.
