Description
Philip Gardner (Philip 18) was kind enough to let me do a take on one of his fabulous songs Travellers Blues

http://macjams.com/song/74907

I remembered this country blues feel he had done and it caught my attention but when he posted a live version of just him and his acoustic at The Fire Station I believe, I heard it kicking in to a rockin' blues after the intro .... well, in my head anyway ....
Thanks Philip for letting me do this.

... added a cartoon of Philip travelling ...

Wow!
What a great version of Philip's song, this is excellent Stan!
I really like the intro and all the instruments sound great when they come in.
I love the guitars and your vocals, this is an excellent production and a wonderful performance.
Yes very much enjoyed Stan and a great blues song.

Travellers Blues
Super high octane rendition, Stan. You have taken Philip's fine acoustic blues and really stepped it up multiple notches in impact. Your vocal work on this is just outstanding. Such an authentic blues rock vibe. Just a classic. I love "do this, don't do that". The guitars are just hot and the bass and drums drive the song out of the country all the way to Austin. That last solo on the outro is pure class. Fantastic re-interpretation of Philip's original. Thanks, Peter.

Wow! I didn't realize Philip was such a rocker deep down! I remember this one and man did you make it your own. Your vocal has tons of bar room guts. Great guitar playing and that blues harp rules!

This just reaches out and grabs you! The guitar and vocals are stunning at the intro then it kicks in and you cannot stop the foot from tapping and hard.

Your version is a lot more of a rock song. Its cool how you can do this and still stay very close to the original music. Great songs have a lot of flexibility. Thanks

Great song by Philip, though I'm pretty sure he wouldn't rock it out like THAT - damn, that cooks, Stan! Sure you're not really from Texas ;) Nice work, man - enjoyed this!

Pain don't hurt
... if you can sing and play like this. It's all good, but the bass sounds particularly good on my earbuds. Whoah - mouth harp and lead kicking in. Great, flamboyant blues.

Pumping nicely!
Isn't it great when you hear something, and in your head you re-imagine it, and actually get to produce what you were hearing? You did a great job; this thunders along with lots of power and fun. LOVE the harp work!! In my monitors, the net sound field was a tiny shrill, mostly on the drums, but that's my only nit, this is a big truckload of fun!! Definite chair-boogie!
