All For The Love Of Another (1986)
You say you were a kid when you composed this song. It is interesting to consider how happy most people would be to be able to claim authorship of such a song at any age. Your words are fine and your melodic material and overall structure is solid. You should be happy with it, Keith.
Quality always shines through, this a good track, enjoyed your singing on this oldie. Your style is slightly different..
Its always great to hear how it started and the quality of this recording is amazing, my old Tascam used to hiss like a... well... a lot, after a few bounces. Anyway, great song, harmony and melody. Feel the need to listen to The Cars, Heartbeat City. In an 80's mood now. Great work Keith. Gibbo
Nicely performed Keith, and another enjoyable listen. Well delivered thoughtful lyrics. Keep up the good work.
Melodys still stand...harmonies too !!!
I like the Bass lines...A statement of a lifetime of music from a touched / proud listener ...Salutations Mr Kallen !!!
Thanks you guys...Nothing gets past you lot!!! ..ho ho! ..just to answer some of your points. Yes, had chorus pedal, did use it...Yes, liked Andy Sumners style...but no, cant sing in that key now without squealing!! Merry Christmas! keith
A good song shines through despite the age and I really enjoyed this one. In fact for a 4 track recording I´m surprised how good it´s sounding and you can still sing in the same key today! That´s not fair - what´s your secret? LOL That other site clearly had no taste! Merry Christmas to you are yours..
It doesn't really matter how long ago or what this was done on to me - it is a great song. You seem to have put some great effort into your vocals, guitar and bass - they are really done nicely. Very cool that you posted this - a good song is a good song, this one is great!
Hi Keith, This is brilliant, from a cassette 4 track from 1986!
The production is clean and I can hear NO "tape hiss" at all, at least that's my memories of using a Tascam unit, considerably later than you, I always seemed to end up with more noise, than music!
As for the song, well I like it, I like your vocals and especially the chiming Andy Summers style guitar workout!
I like your lyrics, they are heart felt and good!
An easy vote from me!
This is quite a wonderful recording for an old four track! Vocal stands out very nicely. A fundamentally sound offering to my ears. Reminds me of an early 80's vibe a bit? It works well! -Mike
I do love history...the journey from the past to the present....and connecting all the dots along the way. Thanks for uploading these oldie goldies...voice hasn't changed since '86...got a nice timbre in there...guitar..phased...chorused...? a slice of a Boss pedal f/x? OK ...some clichés...but we all used them to get started ;) Some tender moments and irony works so well (so clear I couldn't see)...sweet piece!
They say that fiction...is the truth, inside the lie
Here is my take on some musicized fiction...
Well... Ive been plonking away on me old guitar it seems, for the last ten thousand years...just to amuse meself more than anything else...written/recorded many hundreds of tunes in various states of quality...from recordings made on shiny magnetic tape stuff, powered by magic elastic band thingys...yup...I have the technology of a wind up clockwork toy!
Mostly acoustic..wandering into rock (but I aint got the voice for it!) I try not to hold any punches back, I musicize what I see or feel. My music is pretty simple, I dont think too long or hard about it...it either comes or it doesn't. Its the only place I can be honest...and ..erm..maybe get away with it! My mission: Complete an album called: "Songs The 70's Missed" Lol
I entertain me little self doing it...I would be delighted to know if anyone else feels entertained too...it makes it all worthwhile!
A Wise Saying: Those who live by the sword...get shot by those..who dont.
My Saying: If we leave no mark...then we never lived...For whatever its worth...Here is my mark
