Well, it was an honor to work with Frank’s wonderful and truly soulful voice again. I was shooting for a vintage sounding mix on this one. No synth sounds were used. I was thinking maybe late 1960s/early 1970s. It’s probably more early ’70s. I got a little Bacharach thing goin’ on and maybe the song has tinges of Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye..maybe even Billy Preston? And there is a little surprise at the very end that hopefully will make you chuckle. ; * )

oh…and thanks to Loveshadow for adding some harmonies…although they’re a bit hard to hear I guess. I had a little trouble blending the chorus vocals.

Lasswell’s touch of Bacharach, Hathaway, Gamble & Huff and a vibe from 72 is simply put ” BEAUTIFUL “.

Lush ” TSOP ” Strings, a soulful Hammond, and Franks “Oh So Cool Vocals” Your back in 1972 and if your to young to know, just close your eyes and listen.
