New mic, new interface. Just trying to wrap around it all! I hope you enjoy this. I re-recorded the vocals and remixed the whole thing.

Lyrics
I've been on the Line
all of the time
all of the time

I'm drinking beer
every year
every year

I'm alone
don't use the phone
don't use the phone


Jim's got my card
I'm workin' too hard
I'm workin'

And I know
Yeah, I know
I'm not exactly right

Don't blame me
Please don't blame me
If I put up a fight

Say goodbye to old Jim Larkin
when I'm gone
when I'm gone

You know I'm into the kind of sparse arrangement featured through the first half of the song and at the end. Nice vocal. You've really captured the darkness expressed in the lyrics. I also dig the bass line and background vocal arrangement.

Has a live feel reminiscent of 70's era country rock recordings. Vocals are strong. Nice picking & tone on the acoustic, which contrasts well with the muddy bass.

G'morning Vic
Just posted on forums: Zoom R16 recorder and Audio Technica AT2020 mic. Thanks for the listen. It's been a bit of a learning curve, in a good way.

This is really good! Enjoyed all the elements put into this (the sound quality is crystal clear--quite excellent--and I think you have a a good, smooth voice that should be given this kind of treatment every time. Thanks for sharing this little piece of existentialism (I hope I spelled that right--it's Monday and I'm at the office so not all here this morning!) Take care now, Michael

Love the Bass sound and structure on this one Doug.
The new mic and interface seems to doing doing well for you, although I hear a bit of harshness in the vocal in a few places. Maybe cutting the highs from 10k up a little would help that, but I'm not sure. The Vocal is very well recorded and done mind you.

Love the song lyrically and the rest of the mix is working very well.

Thanks for redoing this one, I've never heard the original and I really like the song.

Be well and be cool my friend,

Ed
