A Lot of Action Tonight


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is an invitation-to-party song I wrote in 1964. It is one of several songs from that period that I have "salvaged" over the last few years. I used an inexpensive mic and a small bass amp as an interface in recording most of them, with predictable results, but maybe they sound a little more of the period for that reason.

Nice throw-back tune...
Very enjoyable and very reminiscent of the sixties' songs. This rocks. Glad to see another MJ-er who was doing music in the sixties. Kudos!

A lot of action
Lively. I can imagine doing "The Stomp" to this one :-) it has a 60s feel to it. Recoding quality is a bit of an issue - worth redoing I think. Excellent sax solo. Bright harmonies and the bass in the vocal is fun. Good time music, Herb!

Thanks, Philip. I may well try to re-record those songs with my new equipment, but my singing voice hasn't aged well and gives me fits, especially up high. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks, guys. I still play "Montana Highway" every now and then, Charles. It's one of the best songs I've heard on these modern venues.
