Description
I don't really know what to say about this one. There are three guitar tracks even though it probably sounds like more. It gets pretty crazy in the middle where I went in and just let my guitar take me there. This was my challenge during the evenings this week and well ... here it is!

Oh yeah!
You know, seriously, I'd pay for a front row, aisle seat to hear you perform Stan--seriously EXCELLENT STUFF here--rather reminds me of some of the Manhattan Transfer's work (I love them). Major league Standing O for this--thanks again!

Twang...
Stan, you set the bar so high for the rest of us that I do a groin just thinking about it. This is a fabulous funk outing. The guitar work is excellent but it is more than matched by the vocal and harp work. Driving percussion and sweet funk bass round things out. Absolute top notch. Auto D/L. Thanks, Peter.

Oh, funk
Punchy sharp, with some dirty, ripping lead guitar work on top. Great groove. In addition to the rest of excellent parts, the drums are choice. Blues harp! You did that too? Yowza, man.

Wow ! such great musicianship. I would also pay for a front row seat. I could listen to some of those guitar chords and riffs all night. It reminds me of some of the guitar work I heard from Jerome Smith in the 70's

love the middle section. You are one funky guitar player and you blow a pretty mean harp too. This is just super solid and lots of fun. I have so much to learn. Gadzooks is right.

Fantastic stuff Stan - just love the skill and exuberance from the guitar to your vocal. I'd like to hear the bass mixed up a tad - but that's just me.
Love it!

ya gotta do
nothing better than funk. nothing. love that strange pfunk bridge. it needs something though, maybe a more stylized vocal approach over the laid back vox, something barking. know any old eccentric black guys? Got any vocal street people on your block? the harmonica straight up kicks it. and the guitar solo is out of sight dude, just great. tons of fun, thanks for the tune.

Interesting harmonies. The crux of the thing is of course the groove. The harmonica playin' was great, did you play all this ? Damn, that's some serious shit. :)

Blues prevalent. Lyrics jazzy rock. Guitar amazing. Bass and Harmonic married. Changeup smooth. Guitar is present and not overpowering. Like the tempo. Here a little jazz. You are covering all. This is a wonderfully produced musical phenomena. I dig this.
