Baptised in Her Tears
Hi David, I just wanted to say a belated well done to you on entering the chart at No.9 last week with this cracking number. Love it. PJ
Fantastic rock number. Loving the guitar.This track got me right from the start.Rated.Paul.
Nice one David. Good lyrical idea too... it gets to us all in the end!! Thumzup - got my toe tapping. Vocal good and well-controlled - ya bought a compressor for that vox?
Thanks so much for compliments on the new song! Much appreciated!
Love it man!!! Digging that wah wah sound you're getting on the guitar... Just an all around classic r n r from you. Of course what else would you expect from DJC. Dave as you know I always get into your lyrics. This one is right up there my friend. Just an a s s kicking JAM!
Another DJC classic. You do have fun. It's a party at your house all the time i suspect. good ole fashion rock and roll never misses!
Your sound is so unique. This beaut would fit so well in many an upscale dark comedy western horror flick with wit aplenty. No one does it quite like you do.
I wouldn't have guessed it was you by the music alone. But that indistinguishable voice makes it obvious and automatically gets a thumb. Cool guitar solo! That is another area where I would know it was your stuff. Cool work!
I'm hearing a late 50's - early 60's surf guitar kind of sound - the "Ventures" etc.! The drums reminiscent of the song "Wipe Out".
You can't go wrong with that kind of recipe. I like your use of different sounds on the guitar. The lead guitar fits well and tone just right. Vocal sounds tight and is reminiscent of "Alice Cooper". That's how I hear it - and I like it! Gets my vote!
YES!! As tbwig says; Barbara Ann!! Great track you two Nice and poppish. Great guitar work as usual Dave.
You and Randy sure make a good team.
OK, now I'm hearing Beach Boys "Ba-Ba-Ba, Ba- Ba Barb-ra-Ann" in the synth (or is that a "wah" on the guit) at the start...sweet. Did I mention "snares"...think they're toms and kick for wipe out ;) Nice touches...been up too late...starting to hear things..."memory is gonna linger on..." sounded a lot like "gonorrhea's gonna linger on..." true enough...whichever way you word this line ;)
Forgot to note the "Wipeout" snares at the start...sweet touches in this track ;)
All the elements that make your songs so great - great lead work, distinctive vocal and strong and interesting lyrics - nice retro sound to this track - rated.
"Edgy" that's the description I was after. You put me in mind of Wilko Johnson in his more vibrant days. So original a suprememly avant garde! Great fun to boot. love it.
Cool rock track. Dig the guitar parts as well. I like that you have your own sound that really works for you. Enjoyed it. Thumbs up.
Classic rock and roll! Nice guitar work, a few bends on a gritty guitar riff, cap'n Casio holding down the beat, bass on the bottom...no better way to "..baptized by her tears.." ;) Vox rendered the way only you can...."dammit lt... me go..." Some catchy lines in here too ;) great job!.Thumbs!
Hi DJC, Wow this is something very different and bouncy! It's also got rhythm and as well as showcasing your great guitar playing, it reminds me of just how much I love your vocals cause they ooze so much expression and reflect your personality. This is a great upbeat track and I hope you do very very well on the site with this. Cracking stuff! Rated. PJ
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.
