It's Not The Same



 Genre: Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

The original tune was recorded and posted back in 2009.

When I opened up the stored files I found that everything my collaborators contributed had survived, but my guitar and vocal did not. (This happened with a number of other tunes from that period... Sigh!)

So I re-recorded my acoustic guitar and vocal and posted it a few days ago. I thought I was done with it, but upon giving it another listen I just couldn't make my peace with the tonality of the vocal or the way it sat in the mix. So I took it down and went back to work.

Well... once I got back into it I ended up remixing the whole darn thing! I really think it sounds better now. At least... I HOPE it does... Ha ha!

Micheal Wark (WYNDSOK)=Lyrics, vocal & acoustic guitar.
Vic Holman=Electric rhythm & lead guitars.
Neil Porter (JIGUMA)=Bass guitar.
Andy Mackle=Drum kit.

PS: I remember when I submitted this one to Vic Holman back in 2009 that he was a tad apprehensive of playing at 150bpm! I think he acquitted himself marvelously... don't you?


Be well all!

Is this a different upload|? I thought I had left a comment on this song recently,

Hey KC
I was too hasty with the first upload. I tweaked the mix some more (see liner notes).

Thanks for returning to listen and comment!

Not the same
This is a fun song. I agree with KC, this has a Byrds vibe. All that's missing is a jangly 12-string electric guitar.

Given that you came back to this song after being away for 10 years, I found some irony in the lyrics :-)

Thanks Tom
Love the Byrds, but my poor fingers would go into open revolt if I tried to play this on a twelve string! Ha ha...

Be well friend!

Not the Same
I, too, starting singing in my mind "The reason why.." when I heard those chords. I agree with the other -- nice work!

great song, retro but it's one of those songs that can defy genre, yeah, byrd-y but can't one say the same about them?
