My other band has been in the studio & our drummer uploaded some of our recent recordings onto our website last night.

Just click on the 'media' link on the left of our homepage.

I'd be interested to know what you think, since all 4 songs were originally recorded by American artists....

I only had time to listen to the Holly/Ronstadt cover and my only comment is this: "when you cover a mega-hit song like these and use the 'same' arrangement then you'd better be awesome and I didn't hear 'awesome' - - - but I enjoyed the listen"

Finally got time to stream the other two songs and I found "awesome" - - - - IMHO, the arrangement and vocals on Etta's Classic "At Last" is very very good and I would buy the CD that it was on. So as they used to say on American Bandstand's Rate the Record - - - "I give it 10 out of 10".

Guess I should say something about Steamy Windows - - -my $0.02 is "Good pickers but not the ideal genre for the Lady to be singing !"

We're still on that 'learning curve'.



But the function band is nowhere near as much fun as this lot...

Here we are last Monday in a local public house playing a couple of new tunes... Those are my fingers on the bass...

Y'all have buckets of talent and I enjoy all the listens.

No hi-jack but we were watching PBS the other night and they had a fund raiser concert on called "Under the Streetlamps" with the Jersey Boys performing. Good 2 hours worth of entertainment.

Thanks for sharing the link.
Have a great weekend,
WR

This was recorded at a local watering hole last week. It's a funky tune called 'The Chicken'.

It's not very often you get two bass players together, but we did.

That's me on the 4-string up the back and my friend Andy on the 5-string sitting front left, playing solos over the top.

I'm keen to hear your thoughts.

Found out the keyboard is a Korg - the keys aren't weighted, so it'll be left at home in favor of a better one for live performances.

We've been getting together regularly now since Christmas & decided it wouldn't be a bad idea to work out the formats for the tunes ready for gigging.

I'm very proud of what we've achieved so far & thought I'd share with you a few of the tunes we've recorded at recent sessions.

The Promise

Sookie Sookie

Mister PC

Caravan

Songe D'Automne

Cantaloupe Island

Ummh

Mercy Mercy Mercy

Walk On By/Bring Down The Birds

Please bear in mind they are all w.i.p. & recorded on a Nokia phone...

I'd really appreciate feedback from you all, so please take the weight off, grab a cuppa, put your feet up & have a listen.

You Gentlemen have mega talent for sure - - - - much more than I ever managed to accomplish in my messing with it. All cuts are good listening but my favorites were:

The Promise
Sookie Sookie
and
Mercy Mercy Mercy
Sure hope you get a small horn section when you do your final sessions on those 3.

Caravan shows your obvious great talent but is a hard one to cover and improve

Songe, Cantalope, Ummh nice but not my genre

Wish Y'all the best on these and can't wait to hear the final cuts.

Footnote: as far as weighted key go, I've never been a fan but if that's a factor - - - just bite the bullet and get a B3 with a Leslie - - - - - OH, and some roadies to move that thing around from gig to gig hahahahahaha - - - - L8tr

Thanks, man!

I've played different styles of music in the past, but none of them gave me as much freedom as this kind. It's really just a matter of finding the groove & sticking with it.

The keys man says his full-scale Roland is more than capable for live sets & because each tune is all about creating mood, he says the weighted keys give him far more versatility, especially for soloing.

What do I know? I'm just the bass player!

Once again, I appreciate you taking the time & I'm really glad it struck a chord with you. (Excuse the pun)
