Goin' to Texas - with Ray Brookes
I really wish I was coming with you bud, especially with this ticking in my ear, oh yeah!! You paint an awesome road trip picture here my friend and I really want to be there!! Vocals are wicked!! Lyrics are massive and played with proper attitude!! Stole a 12" Bore....cool...only you man!! The production is without doubt, clear as a diamond!! Love it all!! Loving the uke and harmonica, they both have a lot of soul!! Thumbs way up Dave, Ray and Dawn!!! Love it!! Baz
a great sound to this song reminds me of chis rea if you don't mind me saying this will be in my head all day il be looking forward to that a great song
I think this fits quite well in the Country genera... Great lyric! Where is the here that your tired of??? Everything is right were it should be but the uke really stands out for me. You've got yourself a fine collection of kick ass songs... as our old friend Erik Juardo used to say...
well, this collab extended to a lyricist and a blues harp/guitarist/producer, nice assembly...the banjo really fit in with the uke...nice playing btw DJC...Ray is up to the task...launching this onto a new plane...enjoyed the narrative and your vocal presence - always a smile in there...:) Yippee-ki-yay !
Wow great song got it all, instruments drums, tempo and a superb vocal delivery, Iv'e never been Stateside but this song took me there.....
Got to love this, nothing not to love, pretty funky country I'm hearing, banjo and harp are superb, your vocal? You took me to Texas too. Great listen and thanks for the DL, Gibbo
Hey, thanks guys, glad you came along for the ride...:) Might get a little crazy, there's an ice chest full of beers back there and a bottle under the seat, yeeehaawww!!!
Americana doesn't get better than this gritty masterpiece.
What a start up! Spoon on a tin bucket? :-) Didnt know where this was gunna go...great stuff I think! Its got the lot in here...banjo...harp..gritty vocals. Love some of the lines in this..especially "Can't ride a horse
Or rope a goat. I can't even.Leave you this note" Bloody brilliant!!! K
cool song. cool rhythm and sound
really liked this. great job all works very well, music is great
Terrific song David, has loads of Texas character, grit and soul in abundance, cool uke and vocals and, Ray has done a great job with this one too!
An easy vote!
Ray is the man, when it comes to blues harp (and other instruments for that matter). Lovely western groove ya got going here. Shoot (spits into the spitoon) cool one, pardner.
how do you manage to out cool coolness.. Ray, your harp just brings this up a notch. I love the uke! That dark vocal only you can deliver. Production is mighty fine. Dang this is cool.
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.
