I'm Crazy 'Bout my Baby
Wow!!!!!... I'm in heaven with this superb guitar along with your voice. This is possibly one of my favourite collabs on MJ. I have to ask about the hiss ... it's like an old record or tape ... love it when you keep that finger snap time during the solo. You're both hired. I'll start you off at$20 a week ... just kidding.
Thanks for the treat!
Cheers

Thanks Stan!
You are too kind! We'll take the $20 per week if it includes free Diet Rite Vanilla Cream Soda and Halvah Bars. You take care now! Michael and Mark

(PS: I needs me a new preamp--sorry about any hiss; that thing is on it's last legs but I blew my pin money this week on a genuine Stealth Hawk remote-control helicopter. Hey, first things first!)

You know, singing along with you is such a special thing that I probably could have sat down and sang 47 different takes of this, I like it so much--you are a consummate pro and always so generous and easy to work with and my special thanks to you for doing this on request; I love this song and it's kind of close to my heart for various reasons. Great job Mark!

Wow, thank you so very much Karen! It's always a red letter day when I can work with such a great talent like Mark, makes me feel "way up there"! We are so lucky he's here and fortunately for me, he's also fond of the older classics. You take care--and thanks for making a second trip! Michael (PS: Now I have to find out just where that phrase "red letter day" comes from--I'm not sure, but offhand, you'd think it refers to getting your draft notice from Uncle Sam or something!)

Moe!!! I know, I know, bannnnnng zooooooom! Was in the MJ neighborhood and wanted to say hi. So glad you posted a song, and such a fabulous one at that.

It's so wonderful to hear your beautiful voice tonight. Mark's guitar playing is simply superb, you both work wonders together. Love this song & love you too! ~Imps

Impsie, this time my exaggerations about Ms. Lanche came to full fruition this time around; in a perverse way, it was a beautiful sight to behold; wished you had seen it. I felt like Sir Edmond Hillary making my ascent in that aftermath, let me tell you! XoXoXoX

Excellent guitar playing - love the way those chords keep walking, and the solo trips along in fine style! Beautiful tone, too - old fashioned jazz (and I mean that as a compliment). Michael's vocal has his usual flair and charm. Together - a special treat!

Mark and I am so glad to hear from you and we appreciated your taking the time to listen to our music. Oh, I used to play this in a piano lounge years ago and I had a little friend who would stand in front of the piano and act out this song; I'll always remember that kid!

So relaxed,
the satchmo-esque scatting over that smooth but still jazzy guitar. You really got the a 1930's vibe going there. What was that at the end...your helicopter taking off?

(and apologies to Gaylen, whose very nice comment I just accidentally deleted--sorry Gaylen! Thanks for doing that!) It's quite okay Kenta; my time has really been sucked up almost completely by various things these past months, so I even more appreciate you finding time to drop by and listen and for leaving such generous remarks for both Mark and me. We TRULY appreciate that! You take care now and hoping life is treating you well! Michael

im crazy about
ibstrat's guitar, you just bounce along with your vox, so natural the way you flow, IM glad you didnt use a gate to get rid of the noise from your mic gives it an old recording feeling tops again MIke BTW Ibstrat is one of the best guitar players on MJ!

Oh that hissing--I really think it's due to something I might have actually done to my settings in Adobe Audition as I don't get it with other recording software (but alas, I prefer working in Audition). My pre-amp is acting wacky too, so I probably should replace that before too long. I'm glad you thought it gave this some kind of ambiance though! On behalf of myself and Mark, we thank you for listening to us, and for those very nice words. You take care now! Michael

Thank you so much Mr. Gretch! Mark is such a pro--the way he played this, I'd have thought he recorded it listening to me sing first, because his fill-ins fit a vocal like a glove; just incredible. I'm a fan of his too and glad you are as well. Happy to hear from you--and you take good care now, Michael
