Gotta love it brother! You really have something real good going here. Keep spreading your love. Blessings~Alfred
Love the off-the-wall ambience of this one. Good job.
This has an admirable stream-of-consciousness feel about it, a hard trick to pull off but you do it admirably. Love the vocals too. Has a Dark New Romantic feel to it..
an impressive track that wears it's individuality on it's sleeve.
Fretless bass! Only you Rich! Very cool touch and it is something that definitely sets you apart from the pedestrian fare not that anyone could every think that about your music anyway. Thumbs!
khymry, the bass is me playing my fretless.
I just let this run, let it wash over me, I love the way it swirls, the layered vocals, guitars panning left to right, strings at 1.20 lift it to another level. Awesome music. Thumbs up, Gibbo
"By and By" a very English expression too...this has wonderful dark overtones and that... I always enjoy... that wee bit of dark...otherwise how would we know when it gets light? Wild vocals Rich...wild! Love that 'bobbling' bass in this one. keith
Strings are a nice touch, like DJC wrote,
as always a great song i love the whole eerie feel to this track the flanged guitar and the synth bass are a treat to hear and the delayed backing vocal all adds tto the magick of the song the production is first rate
you are the master
Hi Rich, Yes it can take a while to get to these places, but boy, oh boy are the results sure worth it, this is such a BRAVE sound, hypnotic with the subtle bass, and super guitar sound, and such an interesting lyrical/philosophical dimension, surprising and stunning!
And get there it does! Yeah, that bass is superb, so's that acoustic. What tuning you using for that? Strings are a nice touch, so are the echoey backing vox, gives this a haunting feel, something to scare the little kiddos trick or treating, eh? Enjoyed it Rich, lyrics/vocals were a treat for me!
lots can come from the by's and the bye's of life...big guitar thumping (I've seen that thumb strum and the injury in the creative process ;) Nice to hear that Triton sound...tantalizing vocal haunting in there as the muses are given voice. by and by...life is in those chances...dives are just part of the living ...enjoyed all the nuances.
Wonderful angst, love that bass. Synth strings a nice touch, love the mellow section half way through................David
The chances are great, the dives, not so much. But wouldn't give any of them up. Well, maybe twenty......great song Rich. Very dreamlike presentation with the vox, fx geet and that bass just driving along.....
I loved music at first breath. Born in 1955 the year when Marilyn Monroe came to NYC for acting lessons. Less then 10 miles away from my wee infant self. Must'v had an effect on me. Maybe.. ya never know. So to go on.. Memories, far back. Music involved everything. Sounds, beats, how I felt. When music I was attracted to broke in, it was worth waking up for. It influenced my personality. Who I would like, love and where I would hang. Music surrounded everything in my reality. It was the muse to get me along and hang on. Always going on. That's just the way it is. To what, I don't know. I just hope someone out there is better off for something I did or didn't do, said, or sang and boy, singing saved my life more times then I can count. I always had that when I had absolutely nothing else I could count on, even myself.

at five I played my first notes. at 15 my second. in between we just don't talk about.
this song really reflects on where we are, whats important about life. the arrangement, the guitar, vocals, all really hit the mark. this is one of the greats.
Your voice is so cool. You have these "cracks" in the words and it doesn't matter... in fact it makes you "real." I don't know if that makes sense to you, but to me – trust me, it's good! The music has a very lifting feeling to it. And again, your music hypnotizes me to listen to the whole song not once, but twice. THEN, I want to get a copy, and comment... it's a whole thing that I go through
