Nice guitar work in this!! Agree with the other comments referring to a Dire Straits feel here. Very interesting theme.( Luke 22:42) Really enjoyed this!!
Great Guitar Virtuoso here - Drums seems a "little" rushed which add a tenseness to it (intentional?) - I hear a Dire Straits influence in this Song - Keep on Pluckin'!
Some nice guitar work here. I really like the interplay of the acoustic guitar with the electric guitar. Cool idea. Great Title, Up. Have not heard that before. Nice work. Thumbs.
Nice dark feel to this song and I love that guitar work. Great work; well done.
Can deffo hear the Dire Straits comparison :) Wasn't keen on the drums, personally but everything else sits well and as always a great vocal :) Some very tasty guitar by Mike :) Toe tapper for sure. Drums sat better with me the more I listen just the start sounded like you had 2 drummers. Cool! Peace,Ricky. PS the part were the drums fall out was quality.
Hi David and guys. Love this version - the keys are top notch as is everything else. Dave Rave is also right about your bass playing - another fine perfoamance and song David - loved playing on this. Thanks for the opportunity.
Blown away with the intro, what with that bluesy feel!! Here come the great vocals!! This is, without doubt, a brilliant track and something I could listen to, time and again!! The intro seems to fade away into the great essence of it all!! Many levels in this one, all of which I dig!! Thumbs up Dave!! Happy New Year Bud!! Baz
Realised i'm late to this one too - stunning guitar work on the intro and throughout - put me in mind of Dire Straits.The vocal melody is very strong and catchy. Impressive sound DJC. Merry Xmas from The Nerks.
Nice opening riff on guitar - enough to make anyone shake out those nails and start dancing to the beat. Get's my vote for longest intro too LOL. I do get the feeling I've heard an earlier incarnation of this so lemme know dude. Yeah definitely. Some really nice different colours going on on the guitar - I'm a sucker for that of course and it works a treat on this. Production is pretty good too and Randy's drumming is keeping time really well. Damned all-round (no pun) great song dude. A bit harsh into the quiet chorus at 4min14 is my only crit dude. Well done and thumzup.
One of your best David! Love everything about it. Randy, Mike and Doc doing great. Love that bg organ, give it a classic feel. Another DJC slice of life.....
Very nice song all around. Really like the production that shows off all the talent here and boy that's a lot and then some. I love that raw chorus that's such a trademark of DJC I've always loved and this so proves why.
Another version of this has been on your page before... or am I losing the plot? Whichever, I thoroughly enjoyed Up, its a real singalong song played by a great band, taking a DL, thanks David, thumbs up. Gibbo
This sounds good Dave...I mean really good! It rockets along and 'up' - wards with some damn purpose. Cool bass work too...as I recognise appreciatively :-) ..but those lead gits are the ding-dong cream on the topping! A Bloody great song in every way!! keithmas
the band you assembled, and your own chops...wow...David...got it all in this sparkling sound..lead fills to haunt...beats to move...vocal to lay it out...awesome reconstruction of this tune that drew me because of the theology :) Wow Guys!
Blimey David didn't realise you are such a good bassist!!!
Dave this is great man! You've got the mix perfect. Everything is in it's right place... What i can say about that lyric... oh DAM!!! Very original idea my friend and the backing band really gave it there all... Love that solo by Michael... Great track buddy
I had this "realisation" just yesterday, mentioning to a friend, that perhaps all Religion (belief in a creator God) is due to human inability to accept non-continuence of any form of "life" after the material/organic negation oof out earthy existence, in other words WE created a "father" God to deal with this existential crisis, not the other way round?????
Starts with an `F` ends in `Awesome`
I seriously loved this and jammed along on my piano. i`m no rock keyboard player but Man I wish I could rock like you boys this is seriously great fun i`m missing out on
Who says this place needs more Dance music when we have this :)
The "and Company" indeed makes all the difference! I'm David Joel Carter, a songwriter from Tulsa, Oklahoma, pleased to meet ya! There's a solo piece or two of mine in here, but these are mostly collaborations with family and friends, local and in the UK. The "band" changes with almost every song, there's quite a bit of variety here, and some really amazing talent. Too many to mention, as I'd fear I would leave someone out, but one fellow I really must mention is the guy I go to on a regular basis for most of the lead guitar heard on these songs, Michael Round (mykyndryd).
Also gotta give a big shout-out to my wife Yvonne Carter, who not only puts up with having to listen to me work these tunes over and over, she's been known to jump in and add her charming vocals to a few of them.
