Pretty damn eloquent — musically and lyrically — for a man who has nothing to say! So thoroughly enjoyed listening. Thank you.

When I went to college, long ago, old habits died hard among a certain kind of live band. Singers would introduce “Tequila Sunrise” as “this is a song that’s truly meaningful to me” and some bands thought the old blues classic “Built for Comfort (not for speed)” should be covered by each band, each night.

What I longed for during those days was a band like the band Admiralbob77, which could take a idea such as a reggae beat, and turn it into an original and interesting listen.

Here your production values give the piece the dynamics of a live performance, while your vocals and lyrics stand out to make this “not just another bar band reggae song”.

The relative volume of vocals vs. the melodic accompanimnet is good. I could imagine the instruments brought up a tad mroe in the mix, but that’s an aesthetic call, and what you’ve gotten is a really nice sound.

Really creative evolution here—full of heart. Well done.

wow, this is really great AB. if anything, it reminds me alot of early police, or with your knopfler like shredding, early dire straits. just a killer arrangement and you pull it off comfortably well. great to hear you singing too, which i think you’re very good at.

also, thanks for throwing up the source for this. i have plans for this. :)

Thanks for reminding us how good “real” instruments can feel.

The guitar work is excellent and full of expression and great tones and combined with a great lead vocal and harmonies makes this a stand out track.

Wonderful work!

I admit that i was not a big fan of reggae but this sounds great…has a bit of Rock/RB/Jazz/Down Tempo fusion in my mind and a faster tempo. You got me Moving!…i don’t dance the floors are empty around here anyways…so i dance virtually. Thanks
