Hey there JPFers all over the world. It seems the more time I have, the less I get done, especially when it comes to posting here. I'm hoping to make up for that. smile This song is hot off the presses from the delightful Mike Zaneski. It's mainly just to share but, as always, constructive critiques are welcome.

Thanks for listening and have a great weekend.

Ricki

Night Knows My Name

When I look on down my lonely road
Is it you there at the very end
With a smile and a hand to hold
Or will shadows be my only friends

In the daylight I can pretend
But the dark remembers who I am
And night knows my name

I make believe I have no regrets
But Iím scared cause Iíve played like a fool
And I know youíre not a sure bet
In my search for the heart of you

In the daylight I can pretend
But the dark remembers who I am
And night knows my name

Have to lose these chains of my own device
And step out into the light
I need to be whole and in control
Before I offer up my heart and soul

In the daylight I can pretend
But the dark remembers who I am
In the daylight I can pretend
But the dark remembers who I am
And night knows my name

Hi Ricki:

Wow... love that "resonator" guitar sound... and your vocal is like butter off a silver knife. Americana??? Yes... but it's "Blues to me"... and I really enjoyed my listen. Kudos to Zaneski, while I'm at it.

Thanks for sharing... ----Dave

Big fan of both you and Mike.
Enjoyed the song Ricki.

It's a personal thing but it reminds me of a summer that I spent in SoCal as a teenager. Someone lent me their VW to drive around in and the only Eight track in the car was a "Donovan" tape that had "Season of the Witch" on it. Got hooked on that song and this one reminds me of it.

"When I look on down my lonely road
Is it you there at the very end
With a smile and a hand to hold
Or will shadows be my only friends"

Very nice.
Enjoyed it.

Hey, Ricki! Good work on this one. It does have that 'Season Of The Witch' feel to it like Martin indicated. Don't know exactly why that is but...
Anyway...a sugg:

I make believe I have no regrets
But Iím scared cause Iíve played like a fool
And I know youíre not a sure bet
In my search for the heart of you

Thought I'd played my cards with no regrets
Too scared of losing a heart like hers
And now I know you're not a sure bet
Will these cards win a hand like yours

Thanks Martin. Mike's a great partner to have.

Season of the Witch, eh? Interesting...have you ever heard the version by Bloomfield, Kooper & Stills? Awesome 10 minute jam - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWzoHwP4T4g

Thanks Dave, Martin, Drifter and Calvin..

Thanks for the nice comments.

There is a bit of SOTW in the chords--and if one is familiar with the Al Kooper version, I think he uses a similar organ sound. But other than that, I think the comparisons end and Ricki's song is pretty much it's own thing.

Always fun working on Ricki's songs as they well written and moreover make me feel stuff. smile

Mike

Hi, Ricki,

This was a cool listen--the vocals and feel of this song resonate; there's a tangible emotion within. The lyrics on the chorus are killer; nice change on the bridge. Kudos to you and Mike. Very well done.

Woah...the opening almost had me off my seat!
Thankfully, I settled in ;-)
Love the sound, here. Great mood...and love that singer. All the instruments blend like a fine shine.
Some good backwoods atmosphere....and then the singer shifts it into something a bit bluesy / jazzy......nice!!
Always a pleasure!!

Great mood indeed.

The maestro strikes again.
Everything about this production is spot on, Mike.
Outstanding arrangement.

And a killer / dynamic vocal performance, Ricki.

Great vocal. But as a lyric writer I particularly liked the words.
But a great song a round

Oh yeah, I can really dig this bluesy gem. Cool lyrics/ cool music - and fitting vocal (nice falsetto Mike).

Damn, now I've gotta write a low-down blues track today. You guys changed my direction today.

Best, John smile

Hey, John, whatever we can do to help... smile Can't wait to hear your blues tune.

I'm not sure if you were being facetious about Mike's falsetto but...that's my vocal... grin

Thanks for listening, glad you dig it.

Oops, I'm embarrassed. When you mentioned it was hot off the presses of Mike's. I assumed he did the vocal - in which he would of had to use a falsetto to hit those notes. Liked your vocal too Ricki! laugh

Hi Ricki, thanks for sharing this. Solid songwriting and the production really supported the overall mood of the song. Nice vocal work and slide guitar.

Love the "Device/Light" rhyme, great idea for a write! Probably one of the BEST vocals I have ever heard from you, my favorite and great production, but I always know that's what I'm going to hear from Mr. Z. Really liked this one, great collab!
