Description
A mutant version of Sam Dixon's "Myopia". It was Sam's suggestion to do it as a separate track - previously I tacked it onto his version.

Definitely a serious issue
Especially when they use to be pushed by Doctors and now the care givers don't want to prescribe them. Like the calypso style beat and the guitar noodling through out is a treat, top it off with Sam's vocals and how could you go wrong.

great production
sounds excellent on the big system at Sunday volume with no one home. Playing and vocals are both decidedly somewhere 'else' digging a new groove there. Chronic pain has given me some experience with the subject matter.

Sam's drums, vocals and composition
I did the other bits because I was so enthused by the original. It was Sam's idea to do it as a separate tune. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Bud.

Yes, it's solid
The bashing kick drum in the latter third is awesome. It makes it all very ominous. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Mr B.

Yes, it's very good
This was originally a coda to Sam's "Myopia". A slip of the imagination led to this. Cheers, Charlie.

Impressive
Once again, the creativity is running riot.

I really like the production and arranmgement.

You're on a roll (not opioid driven I hope)

Is Merlot an opioid?
I weeded out a lot of clutter and concentrated on the sound, as Sam's vocals and drums were already beautifully done. Mixbus did the rest (it's great for getting a warm, analogue sound.) Ta for listening, Dick.

My Opioid
It it insistent and impactful. Insightful and insidious. Instantly intriguing. Great work guys. Thanks.

Yes
I like how Sam's drums get more and more ominous as the song progresses. It sounds like a heartbeat, or something marching. Thanks for the kind remarks, Peter.

I
love what you added/changed. Gives the song a whole new direction. I only wish I'd thought to ask you to contribute to the original.

I sort of did
Old reggae 12" singles used to have the main song, followed by a toaster improvising stuff over a dub version. I don't know what they do nowadays. Cheers, Sam.

Cheers, Michael
The sound is partly Sam's great drum production (via Reaper)and part Mixbus's warm, analog treatment. I tracked my bits in Garageband first, as it's so simple to use.

Skanking all the way down the street :)
The fat bass is great with slick licks and cool feel
The whole ensemble sound is outstanding, imho

It's always fun
to work with Sam, Chris. The fretless isn't really good for reggae, but I just pretended it had frets and played it thusly. Thanks for the kind remarks.
