Sweet Life W/Awigze


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
The 2nd of 3 songs recorded in a pro studio with a pro engineer, mixed at a pro mixing studio, mastered at yet another pro mastering studio, my point being these are all separate studios and different people who do only that. The musicians are paid studio musicians including Andy. All said and done each song ran around $1200.00. That's a lot of money, I think it was worth it. I hope so. Anyway a dream come true for me but a little guilt spending that much! The drums/bass/and rhythm guitar were live. later we brought in a live horn section(sax/trumpet/trombone), same guy on lead guitar, another guy added a couple more rhythm tracks, dude came in with a real Hammond B3 that you here on these recordings, Andy added the lead sax part putting the very much needed cherry on these songs, and of course myself on vocals, the guy who did the mixing added the extra rhythm guitar tracks and his wife sang backing vocals on this song. I actually am having these songs tweaked by the mixer and remastered to bring the horns and Andy back up a bit in the mix, a hornier mix lol! Thanks Jd.

Dig it! Good, uplifting song which is perfect for Andy to show his talents. Horns add a bunch of flavor here, really like it. Vocals sound strong and I am glad you are getting to live your dream, man! $1200 is nothing when you think about all that goes into it, and all that you get back in satisfaction.

Sweet life, indeed!
If I was going to spend that much money, it would be on a song like this! Excellent tune, and the performance by all was top notch! Always love to hear Andy's sax, and the vocals were great. T

A song worthy of star treatment, JD. Sounding great. Feel good, retro vibe and your vocals are sitting in the mix just right. The lead/sax interplay is class. Andy adds so much. Well done. Thanks, Peter.

Hey dude!
We should get thrown in jail together sometime! lol! Who would bail us out?
Hey I was at the end of these songs and I knew they all needed something, it was like a it needs more cowbell kind of thing and everyone involved strongly advised me not to add anything else and I just knew it needed you! And I hate to brag but I was right and they all had to eat their words and all 100% were like yeah you were right that dude is BAD! Thanks bro!
