I Know You Rider-Early version



 Genre: Folk-Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a different recording than one I posted earlier. It is a much earlier version, I think another digitized cassette recording or maybe a cheap digital stand alone I used to have. Anyway I couldn't change track levels except through use of eq on song as a whole. So the lead guitar maybe a little loud but otherwise it is a half way decent recording. Harmony is good I think.

Said I know you rider gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gonna miss your baby from rolling in your arms

Lay down last night I could not take my rest
My mind was wandering like wild geese in the west

The sun is gonna shine in my back door some day
March wind is gonna blow all my cares away

I wish I was a headlight on a north bound train
I would shine my light through the cool Colorado rain

folk song
Well as one definition of a folk song that I heard goes: A folk song is a song that I can steal from without having to pay any royalties. Lot of that went on in the sixties. People stole lines or even whole songs and then copyrighted them as theirs. Show Business means show me someone in the business and I will show you a theif!

Much improved Tom!
Listened to your earlier version for contrast (and it's still a standout from the aspect of performance), but yeah, this is much more solid all around. Did not think the lead guitar was loud at all (perfect balance). Very authentic sounds on this--the real deal--a fine song of it's genre and very well delivered. Thanks for the newer version!

I Know You Rider
Classic folk from the 60s. You've transported us back to a Village cafe.

My only crit (using paddler's word again) is everything appears to be panned dead center. That does help give it that vibe of those folk recordings of the 60's. I would play with panning the guitars out to the sides just a bit. I would also move the harmony vocal just a bit left or right. Now if you want both vocals to have equal space then leave it the way it is. But if you want the lead melody vocal to stay the focus, I'd back the harmony down a bit.

But like I said, you've captured that classic folk vibe.

Great Tune
I must say, I really like the nostalgic feel of this song. You have a great voice, and I really dig the harmonizing. Wonderful!

Harmony is good...
...I think, too.

Feels like I'm sitting here, watching you folks play.

I've got no problem with the volume of the leads. Sits in well to my ear. Nice, Tom.

Love this song, Bronco. Beautiful folk sound (love the low-tech cassette feel), very authentic. The lead guitar is gorgeous, the lyrics are great and your vocals shine. Wonderful!

The real deal
I didn't know they still made music like this : )

It does have that beefy 60s folk sound to it.

You lived through those times - so I guess that makes this authentic!
