Sounds like a New Orleans influenced tune...the steamy humid weather is in here somewhere/everywhere...in the lyrics, the rubato of the pace, the vocals (some Joni in here too) finding their way through the chords...Bold and subtle in one instance...awesome to the end! Got something fresh in this, and I like that..Rich...is this crooning?! yeah!! :)
This is real deep Rich! Again, I can feel every string vibration mate!! Vocals and lyrics are superb with a lovely music and vocal surge towards the mid point. Sweet work my friend!!
Blimey, I'm still gobsmacked by how you get that axe to sound the way it does. Great vox too as always.
The reason I return to your music is not because were friends but because you are the real deal musician. When I compose I`'m obsessed about every note being perfect and in its place resulting in a stiff performance - you my friend get every note perfect but its free and so dam relaxed.....better and better :)
What an instrument, what a passionate performance! The guitar's not bad either ;)
really like your vocals on this.
soul stretching stuff.
melody wise i prefer some of your others but its cool and different.
enjoyed a few listens
very interesting piece here... love your heart and soul that comes through your music..I agree a very powerful song.. easy vote..
well you certainly got the feel here Rich. You have your own unmistakable style and this track showcases it perfectly. Wonderful vocals , very powerful. Easy rate ..A:)
Another extraordinary track and those vocals … jeez !!! You must have lungs like a Bengal elephant to reach and sustain those notes. Great innovative work, Rich.
Hi Rich,This is another great song from you. Ive mentioned it before i think, but you remind me a lot of radio heads early stuff. Great guitar work, melodies and emotional vocals. You can really hold a note!
You sure did catch that mood and deliver that awesome voice to us...L&B
Rich - bloody marvelous, edgy, emotional and great use of unusual melody lines ... Like you're hailing in the changing world. Third listen and it's 'better & better' ! How many new strings did you need for this ! :-) Jeez
Almost avant-garde jazz. Great vocals extremely well delivered. Very different. Rated.
Great vocal work....
Blimey! Lovin' the depth of the instruments...the humming-bassi-ness of it...to the context of that that crystal sweet vocal that can soar to unimaginable heights. Quite Incredible! No one else heard it yet? They'd "better" had....:-) k
I loved music at first breath. Born in 1955 the year when Marilyn Monroe came to NYC for acting lessons less then 5 miles away from my wee infant self. Born 6 days after James Dean crashed his Porche 955. Must'v had an effect on me. Maybe.. ya never know. So to go on.. Memories, way 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
