Description
This track was included in Soulplay's 2002 debut cd "Urban Mellow"
I liked it because it was raw!
All acoustic guitars, strings that
were later mixed down low. And
no effects ! I dropped my pick while doing the guitar solo, just
kept it in because it sounds raw !
Most fun i've had making a song.
Enjoy !


Thanks

Lyrics
3 in the morning, and i'am waiting for your call
Been up all night, haven't had no sleep at all
Anixous to be with you, and i don't want to talk, not tonight
I want to love you, and give you my all (you know you want it), all you have to do is make that telephone call
Don't make me wait, don't even stall, make that call, make that call

Chorus: Do you really want me tonight.
(do you really want me baby)
Because i'am going out of my mind
(just thinking of your sweet,sweet love)
Do you really want me at all
(startin' to wonder to myself)
Make that telephone call

4 in the morning, and you still have not called, tired of waiting, want to unplug the phone
But i still love ya, want give you my all, give you my all, give you my all

I want to hold you, and rock you all night (you know you want it)
kiss you softly, and drive you out your mind
make sweet love to you, and in love
you will fall, make that call , make that call

Chorus:
Bridge/break

See i want to love you, and give you my all ( you know you want it)
All you have to do ,is make the telephone call
Don't make me wait, don't even stall
make that call, make that call

Chorus x3

I wish I could sing like you.

another great tune
Great song and superb performance. The raw production
sound works for me, giving it a live performance feel. But
the mix has some issues: 1. The volume of the different
vocal tracks is kind of all over the place. Some are just
right, some are really too loud, and in a couple of places
they are very quiet. It's good to seperate the parts with
volume but I think in this mix it's too drastic a difference.
2. There's a synth that I hear come in a couple of times
including at the very end, and it it so quiet that it almost
sounds like it's just barely bleeding in from a stereo in
another room or even from headphones near the mic. It
either should be brought up to a level where it sounds
intentional or it should be entirely cut out. There was also
a record-scratching sound at one point that seemed out
of character for the song; it, too, was so quiet that it
almost sounded like something accidentally caught on
tape. Personally, I'd just cut out the scratch because it
just seems out of place in this song.

That said, this is a great song and it does sound like you
enjoyed performing it. I always dig listening to your
music.

another great tune
Hey Peter,
As always, very keen!
The strings were mixed way down because it
gave the track "production value" i didn't want that.
The recording was done with no effects, so the
lead vocals would "pop out" from time to time.
The scratch was something i should have turned
up in the mix. But after listening it did feel out of
place to me as well ( A MISTAKE ON MY PART).
This track is on "Soulplay" cd titled "Urban Mellow.
It's been out over 3 years, has done well also.
Back to the scratch. I hear some country music
(Big and Rich, and others) artist incorporating the
scratch sound. So thanks peter for the insight.
You " really " listen, i like that!
I might send you another track in a day or two.

Thanks
CR

soulful song....
Just like your music! Especially cool is the vocal jam at
end of the tune, the back and forth. Very live like.

It can get hard to comment...
...'cause I'd probably appreciate your singing if you were
singing the phonebook...

So let's see if I can get objective:

I love the tune and I love the singing and I love the feel,
and when the feel's right I'm forgiving about almost
anything...

It reminds me of some live Ben Harper a friend gave to
me...laid back groove and impassioned vocal that slides in
over the top of it...

I am picky about acoustic guitars, and so if I'm going to
cite anything that I'd go back to, it would be the tone of
the guitar(s). A little bright to my taste--were you going
direct or is it all through the SM-57?--lotta bronze and
not as much wood as I like to hear...If it was me I'd get the
richest, clearest acoustic tone I could and triple track it,
panned left, right and center, and then the best upright
bass playing friend I had to lay a woody bass line down
the middle...not too many notes and lots of funk...

And in my listen some of the strings seem to pull sharp a
bit, which distracts me...

But gosh, Cecil, there's a REASON that when I see your
logo affixed to something, I go listen...

Good tune, and once again a moving, honest, vocal...

Hey EJH,
That was some good stuff ! Thanks.
I recorded everything right in the board.
I tend to like the metal sound of strings.
But that "wood" sound is nice too.
I didn't set up anything special, i just hit record
and started tracking. The results weren't bad so
i used a version on the cd i mention earlier.
This track was just me having some fun until
some ideas start rolling around in my head.
So thanks again and "always" give me your
honest opinions, because i value them.

Soulfull country
Difficult to sit still listening to this one. Very strong, powerful rhythm. Powerful voice that controls the overall attitude. Excellent job!

It works!
Your talent shines through on this one. Sure it's raw, but that just helps to display how good the singing and playing is - it's like being there as you play it. Good lyrics and harmony, too. Much enjoyed - glad I finally caught up with it!
