This is a collab with the talented Tom Devine. Last year, Tom sent me his demo track for He Ain't Heavy. I did the scratch vocal that you hear ... and then we left it at that. However we recently dusted it off. I added some organ and polished it up a little. It is still definitely in the demo camp (drums particularly) but we sort of like that about it. We think it has a nice relaxed, unforced feel. So what better day to post it that Good Friday (or Easter Saturday if you live in my neck of the woods). We hope you enjoy the listen. As always, it is a pleasure working with Tom who is a great talent.

Excellent collab on a classic tune, giving it a solid performance that sounds quite live, a feeling that can be lost in over-production. Nice job!

Digging it, real smooth easy breezy take on a classic. Great harmonies, light subtle 'tightness'. Intimate clean record/mix. Excellent work. Thanks for sharing with us, outstanding.

AdR Artist I like how you guys exchange works and throw tracks to each other. I compose only, so I can not get a kick back like that. Will sure check out your stuff for more of this!

my college room mate was the cousin of guy who wrote the lyrics to this song...the great bobby scott who wrote so many wonderful songs like a taste of honey etc. my room mate said "he was a real jerk" smiley

just goes to show that, apparently you don't have to be a great guy to write a great song!!! this is one of the great songs of all time, and you did a wonderful job with it.
