I was drawn to this when I saw Carol Douglas wrote the lyrics as I heard her with Dawny D over at the click. Her lyrics are top notch by the way. This is a very pretty song. Vocals are very good.

Wow... I am impressed! Excellent production! I must agree with LEXZ... although this song deserves more than just a CD. The lyrics are fantastic, but you have made this song a classic with your superb performance, both vocal and instrumental and yes the reverb adds a nice touch.... love the melody so moving!

Sensitve and well structured piece... the vocals carry the piece extremely well and deliver the emotion... Carol's lyrics are quite good... very genuine. Enjoyed this one Dazed!

hmm.. I like the use of strings with the guitar - this sogn definitely feels lighter - and not so in your face as "desperate man". I also love the reverb - really makes it sound live :)

I really don't have anything constructive to say about the structure of the song - all sounds really good! I like the chorusing of your voice too :)

and as selftort mentioned I also love the absence of drums - make it more like a ballad :)

Great job on this Dazed. I've listened to it many times and wanted you to know I think it's ace.

The seriously high quality of the production leaps out straight away, but only because the song is so good. Like Brian, I like the absence of the drums - just as you think it's building up it drops down again and keeps you wanting more (the end took me by surprise too!)

Top song, performance and production!!

and don't even get me started on the mix, venue / kent has it goin on!
05/28/08 08:40:10PM @digger-stone:

I'm amazed at the diverse versions of this song that are appearing. This is a really lovely passionate version Dazed. I like the absence of drums....it really gives the track a vulnerable quality that is perfect for your take on the lyrics. Lovely picking and nice bass. Excellent vocals. Great work

Fabulous vocal from you here Dazed...This one reminds me a little of "Sylvia`s Mother" I loved that song back then, and I`m really enjoying this one now...Carol sure has talent as a songwriter to be reckoned with... Great guitar. Everything about this one works perfectly....
A lovely listen..

Peace n love mags xx :-)

That Carol Douglas can write them! in fact, I think they named the compact disc in honor of her. This song should be on CD's next CD for sure, and not just this song, but this version. You have captured the eseence of the lyrics perfectly, cut right through to that "heart of gold" Carol writes about. Superb playing and singing - and the production makes sure we don't miss any of it. Hmmm, maybe CD is really Carol Dazed.
