Hi Mark,

Very cool! So many hooks, those vocals up there in "The Sweet" territory. The guitar/bass hook that opens is classic sounding. And I love how you stack the guitar, then the vocal around the same idea.

This has great energy and sounds full despite being rather spare in instrumentation. I think it's cuz all the performances are dazzling.

It's a great mixture of Glam and Prog and Led Zep, among other things. Love the breakdown, love the song.

Mike

Cool tune -- mighty fine vocal performance. Glad to hear you are keeping the family involved. Yes, very good instrumentation and the harmonies topped it all off. Way to go!

Mark, good to know you're still putting high quality music out there and that your girl(s) are into it as well. By the way, did you catch any episodes of Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll? grin

Thanks Michael! It was sort of a challenge to keep things down to three instruments so a band could play it. Thanks for the listen!
