Description
Finally, I am back at making music, new computer, my old tools, setup once again, guitars and basses polished, keyboard dusted off, microphone once again standing in its stand. This is a little different one from me, but still me if you know what I mean. I hope you dig.

Lyrics
Hop-a-long Little Red

Hop-a-long little red, naked riding hood,
let's dance in the woods with all the snakes.
Let's be cautious of thous mean, mean wild bears;
they'll eat us – up – no need to fear.

We're gonna dance in mighty circles,
until the sun goes to bed, and even after that.
We're a human chain.

Me and little red, up in the tree we see,
the Big Red Sparrow with its Yellow beak.
Its song is gentle and courageous, and oh so free.
In the tree of snakes, we all believe.

Awesome!
Glad to see you're up and running again. I see you haven't missed a beat musically during your forced time off. A great groove and nice salacious lyrics all put together with your oh so unique style. Love it. Can't wait to hear what's going to be coming down the pike.

And we still seriously need to head down to New Orleans again and SOON. It's been too long since I've wandered the French Quarter.

Hey .... cool mix. I like the reggae feel. At about 1:20 there is a cool miles davisy trumpet sound ... what are you using there. I like your vocal arrangement with harmonies. Interesting stuff!

Little Red...
Mikki, good to see you back home. Nicely done funky track. Your production supports the vocals and while things get loopy after a while, this works very well...

Really glad your rig is back together
this is a great start to new round of releases I hope to hear coming down the pipe. Nice dub bottom and the Merry Clayton backing vox is a cool touch. Also digging the Miles trumpet and the hoodoo is working in the break before 3:00. Cool track.

Red Riding Hood
Love it love it love it. Reggae Riding Hood in the Garden of Eden. Crisp and clean. Killer lyrics! The moaning backing vox are so despairing. The muted trumpet solo is top notch. How'd you do it? Loop? My G5 died this week and have an upgrade to Logic 9 coming, gotta love new toys. Reset, reboot and away we go... Top grade Nylund as per usual. Nice!

I dig it
Love the reggae intro. Your Dylanesque delivery lends it a sense of irony and metaphor. I like how you make you and Little Red as a sort of Adam & Eve in a woods that is pre-fall. Very cool. That trumpet solo section is very cool, way cool. All your detailed effects are used to great effect. This is one of my favorite pieces I've heard of yours, and I've been a fan since the beginning. This is really good.

(My ears wanted two hits on the snare at the end, just as an idea, on 4 and 4-and, to keep the hipness factor up until the final moment. But that is beside the point. THis is a GREAT track.)
