Three Legged Man

Description
Here's a new project I'm working on. My father in law, who is a gifted guitarist and singer, is finally recording an album after many years of me begging! I'm so excited! This is a Shel Silverstein tune (yes, he's doing covers and fully licensing everything) in the "bawdy folk song" vein; we worked on it a few years back and it is serving as our starting point. I remastered it and I plan to replace the drums with acoustic ones now that I have them, I used to roll with a Roland kit.

Bob Hicks - Guitar, Banjo, Lead Vocals
Me - Drums, Bass, Electric guitar, percussion, all five backup vox parts (Yes, I sing sometimes!)

The drawing is another original my daughter just drew last week. She's nine.

When family collab…
…its such a great feeling. Scoring brownie points with dad-in-law is always a plus! Good show!

Thanks Alimar!
This is really him scoring brownie points with me though... He's so good, and I've wanted to capture him for a long time... :)

Ya know...
my father-in-law's first and middle name is Al Jolson (I kid you not!) but can he sing? NO! Bob is terrific and your arrangement and accompaniment exudes just as much spark and charm as Bob's vocal does--a perfect combination. Thanks for sharing this--I had no idea what I was going to hear when I put on the headphones but this gave me such a big smile and that kind of lift that only music like this can produce in me. LOVED IT!

Big smiles in the studio too. Bob is a joyful kind of guy, and this song is always a big hit live...

i bet now that Mr Hicks has recorded his new album, he's probably glad he did. what struck me most was his *delivery*. it was like you have to feel the he did while singing: uplifting.

Uncle Dave's Gig
Well now... not since 1965. But ya know Hee Haw could have had it on their program. Wouldn't know...lol But if this stuff comes back again... we can laugh at stereotypes, a behavior forbidden by the political correctness police. Can ya revive the Lamplighters shtick? They were my favorites... Family affair, can't beat that!

Wow!
This is a rollicking track! Bob's vocal delivery is just ace, and the banjo is mighty fine, too. What really grabs me, though, are those BV's: VERY fine! And your mix is perfect. In case you can't tell, I really enjoyed this one.
Thanks,
