The song was written and recorded first about eight or nine years ago. At the time I made the track stems available to anyone who wanted to try a remix, which provoked a more than a dozen remixes. A few weeks ago my friend Glen MacArthur (owner/operator of the excellent AVLinux distribution) informed me that his group had recorded the song using my original vocal. This is the provisional result, it's likely to change a bit before its appearance on an album Glen's putting together, but please feel free to comment re: the production and/or the performance.

Best regards,

I remember this song (and the earlier thread, too). Were you saving the best until last? This version has worked out very well. Your vocal is a perfect fit for the new instrumental recording, and merges in well with those backing vox. It may be provisional, but I really liked the sound of this.

Good work :)

@thomekk - Thank you !

@seismic1 - I'm glad you liked the arrangement, I was pretty impressed with it myself. It's about what I'd like to hear if I sang it with a live band. The backing vox was a very nice touch, neatly done. Btw, the "group" is pretty much just Glen and a friend of his, IIRC just the two of them put this one together.

Best regards,
