Description
... was listening to some blue eyed soul from a 1998 album and it inspired me to write a song for the album .... though I cannot sing like him but musically he has been a big influence. Put together this song over the past 2 days ... did the vocals and mix today ... been a while since I have posted under Gadzooks ...

Great song, and it does sound familiar, but I can not put my finger on it. So, not knowing how the vocal is supposed to sound I can say that your vocal on this is my favorite part. Thanks.

I know I should recognize this.
Is it a track off of Santana's Supernatural? That's the first thing that springs to mind, given the overall groove of the track.

Hmmmm,
Mystified. However, that does not take away from the fine work in putting this together. I like the production touches as well. The backing vocals are an achievement as well sounding like female backup singers. I keep feeling that I should know who it is. Stan you did a fine job here.

Stan's back!
Stan you keep hitting these songs out of the park. I'm guessing Van Morrison? BUT, if the other clue is 1986 for the album, which would have been No Guru, I'm not so sure now. Brilliant track, vocal, instrumental and the whole shebang. And thanks for the dload!

Digging this - and trying to put
my finger on the influence. The atmospherics are throwing me a bit - though they're really cool. Second listen now - really good tune. Van come to mind as the kind of blue eyed soul - but John Hiatt holds a high place there - though not so busy in 1999. Then there's Boz Scaggs - but this isn't really his style. Could be J.J. Cale with the use of drum machine sounding drums and some of the great guitar riffs you throw in there. Close at all?

You've got an easy way
with the trippy stuff (that opener is really weird!), and then it's all road house-y with that rolling bass line. I'm no good at the guessing game (could be Van Morrison, could be Traffic), but as with so many of these cuts it doesn't really matter. Beautifully paced with some vocal standouts ("...listen to the raiiin" is KILLER!). Thanks very much.

Blue eyed?
Can't be Prince. This does sound like Chris Whitley, though. Nice guitar throughout, Mr Zooks.

Sorry for being late, Stan. Life caught up with me. Sounds so familiar. I did catch some John Hiatt in there but not sure. Doesn't matter anyway. Just a great track. Thanks for the D/L. Regards, Peter.

I don't think I've spent much time where this is coming from, but what you've done is extraordinary,Stan. Lots going on, each piece contributing to a powerful whole. I love the way the guitar pop and jump. Great!
