In Time by bigt93to98 8 years ago
Thanks, Lou - and all of you for the nice comments.

In a perfect world, I'd live closer to Lou and we could play some clubs. Our long-distance collabs have to do for now. Maybe someday.

Peace,

You da mixmaster! Not easy to make such a dense mix work, but you did it.

Thanks for the invite,

Holy Smokes!

This certainly brings a smile to my face. I think you're a little too self-abasing, Boss! You sound great on this!

Good job everybody. That's a wrap and this cat's gone.

Momma Ain't Happy by enicholsIC 9 years ago
Thanks everyone!

Tonesnio, I record all of my electric guitar tracks direct to Garage Band through a Presonus Firebox.

I use presets designs by Tone Heaven then I tweak them. I was aiming for a stringy, straty, tone here. Just a little dirt to give it some "purr".

Glad you liked it!

Nice wack-a, wack-a funk!

Nice stereo mix. I like the twists and turns in density. Makes it more interesting than some electronica. I can tell you put a lot of time into it.

A Thousand Ways by UncletupeloFan 9 years ago

Ya know, sitting here listening to this it dawns on me that you are growing quickly as an artist before my very ears. I'm reminded of a quote from Dexter Gordon in 'Round Midnight,

"You don't just go out and pick a style off a tree one day. The tree is growing inside you all the time."

Paul, I do believe you are becoming the real deal.

Outstanding job, guys. I like it much.

Whiskey & Old Records by BossHook 9 years ago

Sad and sweet. You captured a feel here with a Santana-esque vibe on the leads. This could have had radio play in the 70's.

Lou,

I'm not sure what this means, but it's melancholy got me.

Nice!

Sea Chanty (Ship and the Sea Revisited) by Baboon 9 years ago
Thanks guys...

Funny, listening to this after not hearing it for a while has me saying, "What the?!" It's a trip! Makes me miss the old days like way back in 2006.

No Escape From Amy (My Vocal Debut!) by PiranhaLake 9 years ago

There really IS no escape from Amy! Ahhhhhhh! And I simply can't get this catchy chorus out of my head. That's good.

Dave, superb work here. You have a cool voice, man!

yes, indeed! I forgot to add the ponk man... DUH! He's credited now - sorry ponkey.
Saxonburg Blues by Matt Granz 9 years ago
5

I told you and I told you to turn up the vox. But did you listen?

NO!

But, I still love it because Matt is one of the lucky few that can sound like a whole band jamming live (how do you do that btw?) and Paul's vocals get better with every song.

Well done, guys,
Ed

Not many folks dare to cover Yes tunes because of the complexity. You've done it nicely! Love it.

Sounds like you got the recorder working. Good thing, because you have a gift and this song proves it! smiley Simple, poignant song. Well done.

It's All Over Now [band; live; cvr] by Bob6stringer 10 years ago
Great energy here. I love the way the vocalist sort of "shuts off" the ends of the notes. It reminds me of Roy Orbison and/or David Byrne (sp?) from the Talking Heads. It gives the vocal a kind of nervous edge that I like. Bob - if life is good to me, I'll get the privilege of jamming with you some day in person.

Ed
In The Bag by UncletupeloFan 10 years ago

BroPaul,

You're leaving us all in your dust. If only I had ridden your coat tails... My presence here lately is just checking out your new stuff and commenting in awe.

Way to go. I love this one. You're not losing touch with the dark thread in life are you? smiley

Love,
Ed
a.k.a. Paul's Brother
Yes, really related to him by blood - same parents. I'm cut from the same genetic cloth as Paul. Paul and I talk about music a lot and have almost collaborated on more than one tune. He bounces musical ideas off of me because he wants to know what I think and because I am his real-life brother. When he accepts his Grammy, I'll be the guy in the audience beside him clapping wildly.
Meditation IIII (When She`s Lying Next To Me) by guitar55 10 years ago

Super Smooth! Nicely done, all!

Brother Paul!

So glad to hear this up here where it belongs. I like hearing your voice a little lower like this. I think it's your sweet spot.

This is beautiful,

Mercy by ScottCarmichael 10 years ago

Scott,

Songs like this don't come around that often. Thanks for sharing the blessing here. I love the guitar work throughout.

Sometimes the only prayer we can muster is, "Have mercy on us all."

Well done,
Ed
What's Your Secret by bigt93to98 10 years ago
5

Excellent form, Lou. The background vocals are a nice touch.

One of the things I like about your style is that you fit equally well with sparse arrangements and more produced tunes like this.

Keep having fun! Your tunes are inspiring.

Right up my alley. I like this whole tune - arrangement, instruments, vocals, lyrics... it's all there. Joanna, it's good to hear you again. You sound relaxed and in the zone as ever here.

Very nice job, all!
Ed

Good one!

Union City by Baboon 10 years ago
5

There's is so much to like in this.

The tongue clicks - the odd lyrics - swirling feel of the guitars. This one immediately grabbed me and kept me interested and delighted me. The chorus is more catchy than any I've heard in a long time anywhere.

What a story.
I REALLY like this!
Ed
Smell of Coffee by Dyl 10 years ago

Excellent.

To pull off a Greg Brown cover, your voice has to have real depth of character. Dylan, you have done it. Relaxed and rich.

Nice work, guys.

Ahh, the plight of the modern man set to Beatlesque pop... you gotta love it.

I like the structure of this one. Very catchy.

Babs, you're voice is as fantastic as ever and the Granz is loud and driving. Well done, guys

My Stomp Boxes by Matt Granz 10 years ago
Matt,

I, too, am a total pedal geek. I've had so many, I can't even remember them all. My faves in your current setup are the DD6 (wonderful delay) and the SD-1. You could just about gig with those two alone, but then again, why just two pedals?!

Love it,
Ed
Port Authority [band] by Bob6stringer 10 years ago
5

This tune starts out fun and gets funner. Definitely going on the pod.

Bob, your strat-ish/tele-ish tones are spot-on. They jangle, bounce and cut through as they should. Long live the raucous vibe of Leo Fender and long live Bob Sperber!!
HOMELESS by RiGee 10 years ago

Richard,

Your work always sounds so professional. This has a super modern feel, yet it moves well from part to part. I like the choir sounds, too.

Ed
A W A Y by Matt Granz 10 years ago

Hooked me from the first obnoxious chords (and I mean that in the best of ways!)

The 60's vibe is all over this piece. Very nicely done, both of you.

Resolution Number 9 by Baboon 10 years ago
5

Big, noisy and rockin'.

I'd love to hear it again with the vox remixed a little darker. It may set in a little better if some treble were rolled off? theGranz may need to give this one his warm "lo-fi" treatment.

Keep collabing!
Ed
FARMER JOHN'S BLUES by Barretok 10 years ago
Thank you, Barretok for adding to this one. Your vocal is emotional. I would love to hear someone else add some solo work to this now. Just some lazy notes placed around your vocals. I think that would round it out nicely.

Looking forward,
Ed
David's Blooz by Bulerias 10 years ago
Bulerias,

Thanks so much for adding to this tune. I love what you did with it. Noisy and tormented in places - just as it ought to be.

Looking forward,

TRANCEMISSION by RiGee 10 years ago

Richard,

Your mixes are always just right. Nice use of synth voices. Have you ever done an entire tune using just synth choir vox? If anyone could do it well, it would be you.

Whirling dervish by fromano 10 years ago

Cool tune!

I'd like to hear a version of this sped up just a few clicks. For some reason, my ear wants it to move a little quicker. As is, it's a very cool idea and I can relate to the feeling of displacement.

Love it,
Ed
Jazza by onehappytrout 10 years ago
Fun song! You may want to (if you haven't yet) check out jdwyer's music here at iComp. He creates his music from all loops and is quite good at it.

Room to Roam (vox wanted) by jkane 10 years ago

Dear God by SteveLong63 10 years ago

Nice tune, Steve! Has sort of a cool 80's vibe to it at times.
If you haven't already, you should check out petercap's stuff here at iComp. We can all learn a lot about songcraft from him.

Get Yer Engine in the Kitchen by Baboon 10 years ago
Babs, Babs, Babs...

What are we going to do with you?

I would like to take this opportunity to distance myself from this piece by stepping away from my computer...

I can barely reach the keyboard to type.

My foot is tapping, though. smiley

I haven't let my hair down in years, mostly because it would take a serious curl relaxer, but also because I am from the Midwest where fun is frowned upon.

Anyway, I ask your pardon for the fact that my playlist is now disgraced by the dreaded "Explicit" tag. Please send complaints to Baboon! Oh, what will my Mother say?!

Peace,
