The acoustic guitar has added a really nice dimension to this and the contrasting styles work really well.

Good job!!

You have this Ray Davies aesthetic with some great polyrhythmic, fantastic old school hippy hoppity, the old roxy music sax coming in there, thumping bass- damn this is enviably awesome. And again Frank is just the star, isn’t he? The man can lay it down! This is an incredible mix.

Very, very solid. This is smooth but edgy. Everything sounds so together yet separated they’re in totally different genres. Awesome work.

There’s so many great things about this mix - the rhythms, the orchestrations, strong harmonies - and of course that great voice! Love it.

When I was a young teen, the local AM radio station played the Lass Bell show.

Mr. Bell was one of the town mailmen, a family man with kids. We all lived in this town of 16,000 people, a mill town where people said the sulphurous paper smoke “smelled like money”.

Every weekday at five p.m., the Lass Bell show came on. His introduction said it all “we’ll be rockin’ and poppin’ with sockin’ soul”. He said that, and he played the tunes, and in some curious way the soul socked.

In those days of r & b and “sockin’” soul, people understood the importance of a solid guitar line, the gorgeous joy of soul strings, and the power of a heartfelt lyric.

Times have changed. The mill shut down. Sulpherous smoke has been replaced with the corrosive sulphur of diminishing population.
Lass Bell is off the air. The soul rarely socks anymore. Synths can play more than one note, and people besides Wendy Carlos and Keith Emerson now know how to play them.

Yet this song “shows me” that the days of socking soul did not frizzle into some acid-rain haze of modern times, but instead gently sprinkles on in mixes like this.

Awesome - puts a huge smile on my face. The writing and production sound very chart topping. And the intro of non-standard instrumentation for the genre is refreshing. It could just be my monitoring, but I feel like I want to hear the guitar parts doubled, or maybe dual chorused and panned hard to get some width surrounding the other elements? Overall, excellent!
