A late night chat with Dylan and jtkattner led me to the artist Greg Brown and ultimately this cover of his tune. He's amazing, check him out.

Great sound! You have both done a great job on this one! This is a different sound than I've heard from etgilles before. I think you've done it very well. The two of you are magnificent together!

I think Greg would like this as much as all of us!
Top notch performance by the two of you!

Dylan, glad to hear you have been touched by Greg B's music. I think you'll agree he is a master musician/poet/fisherman. That said, you'll just need to learn how to fish and you're in!

Etgilles, awesome backing vocs! Such soul and honesty in your voice!

There's just no way for me to convey to you how great and wonderful this is. Without doubt, this has to be the best example where collabs on this site have created that certain magic that no one could have imagined. The vocals gel so fine and well here that it sounds like the two of you have been working together for a long time or that a producer of world renoun came in to help. Greg Brown is an amazing artist. I'm certain that he would approve and would be inspired by your talents. I'm in total awe of this song.

VERY VERY cool. Two distinctive voices that work amazingly well together. The low key rhythmic instrumentals really showcase the work. Nice to hear a change of pace on iComp with the very acoustic reggae groove.

I haven't heard the original, but when two stellar vocalists on this site come together for a song, you just gotta know it's going to be great. My only complaint was that it was over far too soon! Thanks for sharing it.

Talking about another Dylan, Bob that is, this is reminiscent of his Oh Mercy sound which I completely low. It is a great mellow tone in the song which I think is built up by the acoustic guitar in combination with the laid back bass playing. It is an absolutely wonderful track I have to agree with other people's comments.

The harmonies simply brings the song into a different level, this is way proffessional. I would love to reach this level myself. There is one thing though, I'm not completely convinced about the electric guitar solo. The guitar playing is otherwise full with feeling, but the solo doesn't quite feel the same. It might be harsh to say re-record it, but I think the song would go from great to fantastic with a bit more work on the solo.

I can't believe this tune has garnered a crown of stars!

Thanks to all the artists for listening and leaving comments. This iComp community is beyond.

This is Dylan's baby... he introduced me to Greg Brown, he produced the brilliant reggae track and added those beautiful "whiskey" soaked vocals... all these stars are for him. He is consummate artist.

I have only one wish, and that is... someday we will sing this live together for you all at the first annual iCompalapalooza concert.
