"Don't Be Sorry Now"
https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13645652

I went a bit out of my usual Beatle, etc style, reviving an older song I had in my usual style. I TRIED to go Pop R&B with this. Music was again easy to do, BUT not for my vocals, and being 64. THAT took WORK! ha! I do want tough critiques, so I know what more I can do, or to change things. Ive been so busy with trying to get better at all things in this very modest home studio. Open little room is all it is. NOT actually a studio. My wish for this tune is to enter it in the selling music sites to the general public. NOT for JPF to pay downloads. It is free to stream, which I hope you will maybe do to advise me in this new genre for me to TRY.

Thank you,
John

Johnny,

What a beautiful melody Johhny. It definitely sounds R&B. I like the overall "reverb" effect with this song's vibe, but would like to hear you take some off of the piano and maybe pan the piano a little wider than the vocals--giving lead vox center stage. I'd also like to hear the bass guitar punch through a little more--panning piano 25-35% will help both bass and drums to come through better. Experiment (maybe) with taking a 3-5 DB off the piano allowing strings in background to be better discerned--all JMO, use or lose.

I like the song, nice write and great romantic feel!

steady-eddie.

I'm listening as I write, Johnny:

I really enjoyed this song and believe our friend Steady Eddie has "hit the nail" squarely on the head. It is too good to let it go... so I'm hoping you will get back into your recording studio and grind away at this thing. Take it straight to "Hitsville" for us 'cause it's that good. ----Dave

Very nice. I think Eddie has some good advice about the panning to allow the vocals more space. I'd like to hear them a bit more clearly.

Dave, Gavin, Martin: Thank you. I just remixed, with remastering some of the tracks, for what I hope is a cleaner listen.

Johnny,

This is so much better, nice job with the re-mix. You can now hear everything and each has their spot giving you a more 3D balanced mix. Should you desire any more polishing you might look at adding a little more compression in that mastering process or the master fader, as there are a few spots that peak a bit. Not imperative however, and do it sparingly. I'm not advocating that compressing on the master fader is the norm, but with some types of mixes or their evolved status-a little compression can glue and cut out peaks in a mix before the mastering process.

Sounding good and definitely a romantic vibe, nice job, nice write.

steady-eddie.

Thank you so much, Eddie! Yeah, I did know about the over peaks. I record in Wav Audio, so I thought I could get away with a little push. But, you are right as to any mastering, as there should be headroom for that process. I did what I would shamelessly call Mastering, but of course, not how the Mastering Pros would do their craft/art. I pushed the output to match my other over pushed tracks. Thank again. I do wear too many hats.

Didn't hear the original but the remix sounds great.

Wouldn't have recognized your voice if I didn't know this was you - you sound more like Tom Petty than John Lennon! But your vocal approach really works with the track!

Good to see you are still at it. smile

Hi again, Johnny:

Mastering is a bit like black magic and I believe all of us would love to have "the touch"... but the final result is all that counts. It's been a few days since I heard the original and I'm assuming you replaced the original link with the new, re-mastered version. It's not perfect but it comes pretty darn close.

It's great having a "Wingman" like Eddie around to provide his sharp, precise ears and vision for improvement. (Thanks, Eddie!)

Now if only we could persuade Josh Groban to record this on his next album. Winner, winner... Chicken Dinner! Enjoyed, my friend. ----Dave

Loved this Johnny! I think it's a good thing that your influences show. You still sound like you.
I don't hear R&B at all. I do hear early Mac solo, which led me to think I'd like to hear a solo ala "My Love" rather than the spoken part.
I really enjoy your work; it's a pleasure to have a listen.
All the best!
-Mike
