I generally avoid making comparisons to other artists when reviewing, but in the case, you tapped into the same goodness I get from Neil Young (one of my all time favorites) — so there! Bravo!!!

Found it quite uncomfortable singing up an octave. That’s probably where the folk “pain” goodness factor comes from.
Thanks S

Nice one, Scomber. (Btw, great lyrics.)

Thanks Sub. Sometimes the BS just flows freely. Cheers mate

No, man; not too early at all to post. Sure, you might have another version in mind, but this one is just right the way it is.

I like this a hell of a lot. Great singing. Natural and loose. One of your best performances to my ears.

Unlike Ms. SackJo, I like to make comparisons to other artists. Not because I’m suggesting an obvious stealing from someone else but merely because of love of music. Neil Young, allright but also Hunky Dory-period Bowie. This is one of your top three ever in my book!!

Its funny that Bowie did cover a Paul Williams song “Fill Your Heart” on Hunky Dory. Thanks Per for your kind words :)

….and that’s one of the songs (together with song for Bob Dylan) I had in mind when mentioning Hunky dory.
Full circle then:)

this is really great, and i love how you built it around a forty second guitar track (which is also great).

The lyrics and melody just seemed to happen organically out of that wonderful guitar. Instantly transported me back to a time where men wore purple corduroy, women burnt their bras and the surf was much less crowded.

Unlike Susan, I’ve no qualms about comparing remixers to other musicians. And this instantly made me think of Simon and Garfunkel. Love the arrangement. Another winner from Sydney.

Thanks Ivan. Hope you had fun during your recent trip to the “bleak city”.
Not that bleak after all eh?
I could live there in a second but dont think I could handle the weather - as the crowded house song goes about it -“four seasons in one day”

Not bleak at all. Got quite comfy after a day. As for the weather, it’s alright. Speaking of Crowded House, I was surprised to see their ‘Crowded House’ CD still on sale. They must a state icon :)

Clearly more like Neil Young than Leon Russell.
