Old Rockin' Chair



 Genre: Twentieth Century

Get Flash to see this player.

I did this last summer as I can hear a car go by my window. Anyway it's an old song by the great Hoagy Carmichael. I wanted to wait until I could redo the vocal part because I am not happy with it. It's just a scratch track and after I listened to it I didn't sound like someone who was resigned to the "Old Rockin' Chair." But when I re-mixed it with my new mixing mindset I thought it sounded so much better than before I decided to post it anyway. I should do it right but I will not have time. So here it is and happy new year.

Jazzy and folkish at the same time. I really like the harp solo and of course the vocal!

Old Rockin' Chair
Rootsy/bluesy feel reminiscent of Levon Helm. Terrific vocal & great mix.

Love it!
Neal, this sounds great. I have just posted my own "Rocking chair" song - a coincidence. I love the clarity you get in your recordings - and you do it without losing anything in the richness of the sounds you are working with.
Cheers from Oz,

The singing

Very familiar with this song...
...and must say Neal, I greatly enjoyed your updated sounds and interpretation of it--really, you make this sound like it could have been written yesterday; excellent work and thanks for remembering this fine song, which Hoagy always considered his favorite. Take good care now! Michael
