New Flavor
I was noticing the changes, some a subtle and changed the feel. The lead guitar is funky, less rock. Not to diminish shawns performance, he made it scream, then made it sing! The opening vocals is a "here we come!". Like a fanfare.
The song is tight, and travels through many dimension. Very nice change, and still jumps out at you. wah guitar? I thought is was a sample, excellent performance. Latin break vocals laid back. Great Song & Performance...

Hey Steve
The only samples are the organ, electric piano, and drums.
I play the muted (auto) wah panned left and D. Johnston plays the better one on the right. Happy Cane plays the lead.
And good ears! I did make some changes in this mix, mainly, I switched out the main eq, but there are other tweaks also.

Love the playing on this. The wah lead is impressive - jumps and rolls very nicely. Beautifully clear mix. Fine work, Sammy!

Thanks Philip
I think my mixes are clear because I don't smother the original sounds with fx. Excluding verb, or other misc. fx, I use only four plugins a track 95% of the time: tape sim, Klanghelm VUMT to subtract harsh highs or lows, compressor, and a 3 band eq. I like things clean, clear and simple. All four of my main plugs have saturation which I use lightly to keep everything from being too digitally. Once saturation is overdone or too many plugins are used, all is lost in digitalis.

Got to Do It
Well performed and those little pockets in the arrangement are funky as they say...
As much as I like this, it just seems that there are things missing and masked... oh well my ears.
Thanks for posting your great songs here Sam, kudos to the whole crew!

Thanks Daug.
Please share your "missing/masking" thoughts, here or pm. Always up for improvement! I always post songs at my DAW forum because of honest mix feedback (in addition to the simple enjoyment of just posting a new song), and I'd like to think I get slighter better each song post because of that.

Hey Oop. I got one "complaint" at my DAW forum that my singing wasn't quite strong enough. They felt I should have had more oomph. But I not so sure that would have fit this particular song. I sort of like that laid back tone I used. Believe me, I've done enough 'belting.' lol

Too freakin' cool!
Isaac Hayes lives! (With just a dash of early Sly Stone?) Love the Wah-action throughout. Excellent vocals! As I used to say back in the day:

"Tooooooooooooooooooooooo much!"

Be well friends!

Sly Stone!
When I was screwing around on my bass, I started this song out by playing that descending bass line and kept thinking, "I KNOW I've heard this rhythm before on some old soul song. But I couldn't think of it for the life of me. It was Sly! That "if you want me to stay" song (don't know the real title). Thanks for the reminder!

Love this!
Some great playing, very tasty vocals and a groove to die for. Production is sparse and straightforward - in a very good way.
Top post!

Smooth as fresh cream.
Very tight, very together, super smooth and as cool as that thing that sunk the Titanic. All involved in this should be proud of their contributions as it is hard to imagine how they could have done better. The vocal harmonies are especially silky.

Wonderful stuff...
... going on behind the scenes. Pretty intricate accompaniment and awfully fun to listen to. I guess "funky" is the best way to describe all of this...the extended instrumental is really something else. What a great song and so nicely and precisely performed.

Late to the party, Sam. Been travelling in Europe, mostly in Italy. Great trip. Great music to come home to, too. Loving the wash of wahs. Cool funk outing. Plenty of talent onboard, too. Mix, everything, all good. Thanks, guys. Talk soon.
