Description
This is a cover of the 1970 recording by Looking Glass. It was my brother-in-law Dan's favorite song at the time it came out, and when he recently asked me to do a version of it I couldn't say no. The lowest sax voice, on the left side, was played on his mother's C-melody, a 1930s-era horn which she gave me shortly before she passed away. This one's dedicated to Dan'l.

Do do do do do!
Used to play this one occasionally on "stump the band" night... There is plenty of low on this outing.
Perhaps pitching the thing up a minor third would have made more sense? Yer at the bottom of yer range here, that is a big pop music no no.
The production was able and support the proceeding well. The backing vocals were solid.

Thanks for the listen and taking time to comment. I don't think sixteen bars out of 104 constitute too much low, but I do think I should have waited until my head and chest were clear before recording the bass interlude. I normally don't bottom out on an E-flat like that (take a listen to the end of "Arkansas" on iComps if you have time). Allergies, added to my GERD, have done a number on my low range this year, and I got impatient.

Well, before ya disagree so wholeheartedly try the tune pitched up a third, or at least a whole tone. I suggest you will find a "younger than yesterday" effect. The harmony of this type needs air;). Good way to get this illusive air is move the range up! Check out Sam and Dave records, they are at the top of their range.

Unfortunately, I was at the top of my range already (not that there's any particular virtue in that), which was the main reason I sang the interlude as a bass in the first place; I have a mix where I sing the interlude an octave higher, but I wasn't happy with it. When you have limitations, you do the best you can within them. Again, I should have waited until my head and chest were clear. Now that I think of it, if I had done so, maybe I could have done a better job an octave higher and we wouldn't be talking about the bass.

Classic pop. Fine rendition, Herb. That sax sure sounds good. Great to hear this song again. Thanks.
