Funktastic!
You're a very talented man, Stan! The base you set down is rock solid, the guitar lines from the early 2 min mark are superb. All the little things you have come in make this always interesting. The ending perhaps has some of that "rough around the edges" you mentioned, but never mind, it's great! Thanks for the download.

Wow!! Great band sound. Knew the guitar was coming, wait, yes... amazing solo. But love the funky bass, keys and horns just as much. Pretty amazing musicianship on display here. Sounds like you had a blast cutting this one. Friggin' great track, Stan.

Stan, you are infallible--good grief, how do you do it?! I think you baffle musical science! Outstanding job on this--it is delicious and had it run for 19 hours, I'd still be hitting the replay button again! Thank you again--and in a perfect world MIDI brass would be perfect (although yours here sound pretty darn real!) You take care now and keep them coming, Michael

Soundhound said 2144 days ago (October 10th, 2011)
Very, Very, Very
Cool track...... Yep.... This is a bad piece Man...You got the groove
and that what the old feel was rough around the edges.....
So many different syncopation getting the all to end on the 1 was hard
to do on stage and in the studio, lots and lots of painstaking work
just to try and get it right, it's a little easier today we don't have to edit
Analog tape anymore.....

This is what it is My Man Funky butt shaken stuff.......
Well done.....

sweet
love the instrumentation in this, that drum break is kick ass. how did you do that? I was just thinking last night that we should all post instrumental mixes of our funk tunes and let others have at them. the midi horns sound decent on my end. i can never get anything done with them and just resort to slicing up audio samples of horns and piecing them together into something. you are a maniac, what a guitar solo. great track.

A fine funk...
This is a really good funk, with a lot of different instruments ... each doing their own thing but filling-out the total sound very nicely.   You keep a lot of variety going throughout the song; a good well-balanced mix of repetition and new, right up to the end of the track. Very commercial.

Great work! I particularly like the guitar, but then again the rest of the arrangement is spot on and makes the guitar stand out. Tight & tasty.

i've been looking for a track to use that GB drum beat panned out L and R....and not managed. you do it perfectly. oh yeah stan....this is get down OW! is there any genre you don't exploit to perfection. actually please don't post a country track :)
the vocal fooling around works so well. it could be cheesy and contrived...but you deliver it with consummate ease...like someone whose got a thousand albums under his belt. the guitar solo is amazing.
