Description
Got VicH to help me on this one. i hated my lead vocals and asked Vic to replace them and add some lead guitar for extra texture. the song's been sitting around for almost weeks with Vic's adds in place. but it doesn't look like i'm getting the "music time" i want to finish it up, so i just decided to go ahead and post.

Vic Holman: lead vocals, lead guitars
Me: bass, side panned rhythm guitars, synths, bkg vocals
AD programming.

it's to much
love the final mix sammy. i also dig the extended ending. when i first heard the section for the solo i thought Oh, i got to something wicked here". thanks for asking me to be onboard for this kick ass tune!

well, not
really a final mix. i worked on it one day after the last version i sent you and never really got a chance to finish up. since it wasn't 'terrible' as it was, i went ahead and uploaded.

thanks for helping out, Vic.

Lady G Goes Prog/
I like when it goes into that chaotic swirl thing around the 1:00 mark and again at the end...Sort of reminds me of Wide Spread Panic.Also an interesting choice for drum kit....Much enjoyed guys.

Now that's entertaining - the wildness works well. Fine playing throughout.

Backwards guitar!
My favourite, but a complete pain to record. It does sound like a version 1.0, but there are lots of things to enjoy nevertheless. You need to find a complete lunatic to do the vocals. There must be one around here somewhere.

hey G.
Version 1.0? no sir.
could be better? sure.
i think Vic did more than well enough. but maybe he
was a lunatic enough for agreeing? lol!

sam and vic
nicely done. an unusual piece for sure. there's something abut that opening chord progression that really draws me in. i've heard both of your vocals so many times but the combination is like nothing i've heard from either of you before. it's damn cool sounding. the thing is kinda short but i've got no right to complain about anything y'all post. thanks for the d/l.

high thanks Carbon
the main melody was really low for me and i just didn't like how i sounded alone, and an octave higher didn't sound right.
i thought of Vic and he came to the rescue...and quite well.
i totally agree that his lead and my harmonies gave the song a unique sound vocally. not to mention the added guitar.

Pretty unique song, Sam. Great to hear you two working together. To me, it is the type of song that probably requires repeated listens to really get a hang of it. It epitomises the musical variety and pleasure that MJ throws up. Thanks, Peter.

Lady
interesting, lead and back vocals sound of the same person
Nice bridge, a 60's feel
always like the sound of your bass, best described as "thud" (flat wound strings)

Under my skin...
...that's where this crawls...in a good way. It is kind of mesmerizing, swirling as it does and staying pretty much within a couple of chords that set a tone and just don't let go. The SOUND is very nice as a whole sort-of mood/landscape. This I enjoyed a lot. ... I could not understand the lyrics. Sorry. My hearing is, unfortunately, taking a bit of dive these days. Maybe bring the vocals UP in the mix...or post them.

thank you, Paul
basically i was saying if Lady G did something with substance, i'd do something i normally wouldn't do (knowing it will NEVER come to that). ha!

Sammy and Vic ... a very cool collab. Really like the guitar work and overall trippy melodic 60's influence. Your voices are blending well together. I agree with the comment regarding your bass sound ... a warm thud ... I would like to hear this mixed again ... the drums at the start maybe could use some tweaking but overall it all sounds pretty good.

hey Stan
totally agree with you, but i don't have much time for music during the summer. i can take as long as i like for a song by myself, but if i collab, i generally don't like it sitting around forever, thus the case with this one.

Sammy...
Even your "bad" mixes sound better than my "best" mixes. Sounds good to me! Know what Vic can do so it wasn't a surprise and it certainly grabbed a hold and kept me listening. Nicely done!

Mark. I can recall some pretty darn good ones, particularly HOTRS. fortunately, around the end of Sept i can start getting into it again. always good to have a break.
thx man.

Great tune. I was thinking "where have I heard those vocals before" and then I read your blurb. Good collaboration!

Hm, the "Lady G" part kinda escapes me.

Late 60's with a current Psychedelic feel
Really digging the progression and the guitar layering makes this sound wide. Cool factor going on. Nice collab guys.

Sounds okay to me
Nice mix and the lead vocals are smooth and suave. Sort of a Roxy Music sound in a way in certain parts.
