Description
There may be a handful here who remember this song done with Hackneybloke on the lead vocals. I took the lead this time around with the accompaniment of a lady named Janice. She'd been a 'fan' of the rock songs i do with Kindafishy and i checked out her site once i found out and was more than pleasantly surprised. i knew i had to sing something with her voice blending and took this back out for a completely new mix. Kindafishy joined in for the the lead guitar part to complete the package.

Janice: vocals, arrangement
Kindafishy: lead guitars, final mix aid
Me: rhythm guitar, bass, and rest.

I certainly remember this; This version is a bit more playful feeling. Like the vocal interplay, her voice is smooth and works well with your timbre. Nice way to start the day!

thx Chris. that's precisely why i wanted to sing with her. her voice was so light and angelic, and mine so low and deep, i had to hear the contrast. i think opposites attracted well here.

Great song. So much cool vibe. Digging the cool 60's R&B arrangement. Tremolo guitar, vibes, pick bass, sultry female backing vocals......everything you want. Nothing you don't need. You're still the man!

The voices do go well together, and I like the lines you're both singing - delightful. Guitar adds interest and is well integrated with the voices. Solid beat sits underneath, with good colour coming from the other instruments. Impressive work, Sammy!

Great vibe to get things going. Your vocal work is really good, Sam, and Janice complements you wonderfully. Lovely subtle harmonies. Kindafishy provides some real tasty, sympathetic guitar, too. High quality work. Thanks to all. Regards, Peter.

great vocal harmonies, laid back groove is cool.
lead guitar is great but for me the star is the Pops-staplesy tremolo rhythm guitar. Really enjoyed.

that trem is the first thing i heard in my head when i started to record my guitar part. it started out with my acoustic, but didn't quite fit, so i switched.

Agreed...
...with everything above. My two cents: all those bent chords are really really nice and give such a cool/mellow groove to this cool/mellow song. The mix of the two voices is a bit of magic, each complementing the other in such a pleasant and natural way. I did not hear the original, but I love this version. It just all feels so "right." Couldn't ask for much more from a song. You made all the right choices here.

Thanks all
Hey all, thanks for the really nice comments on the song and my little contribution.

I love the original version (must have told Sammy that 1000 times), so it was awesome to be part of a remade version.

:D

this is intense. that guitar sound is perfect (such nice lush tremolo on the rhythm). and the vocal harmonies are great. you guys are hitting every swoop and dive just right, like you've been playing together forever. great to hear your voice again.
