What a great song! I really dig your sound and judging from the great response that I'm not alone. TAll though the lyrics are dark this is a feel-good song for me. The melody lifts my spirits.

This is a gem. Nothing more to say. My compliments

I love just about everything about this track. Taut writing, lyrically and musically, great vocals and one heck of a tight sounding outfit. Great production - everything in its place. Killer hook with sensational harmonies. The beat had my foot stamping from the outset. The duelling guitars in the outro over the vocals would not have been out of place on the Layla CD. This is just very classy work. Congrats to all involved. Cheers, Brian

its obvious that you guys put a lot of your heart into this. funny little twist at the end. given that we live in a very influential time this song seems poignant to the reality of what is going on right now all around us.

This song feels like a live concert anthem, it kicks in at a level where you know you're going to get hitched by that trucker heading down the American South - its a good ride which ever way its classified. Production sounds big like its got famous written all over it!

I enjoyed your "Shot Down in Cold Blood" - very cool guitar solo! You have a nice clean sound - sounds professional. I'd love to have a tight sound like you have. Very nice.

How did I miss this? Fantastic track. Love the vocals and the organ :-) Very professionally produced. Cool stuff!
09/25/10 09:22:06AM @david-c-deal:
Another professional, "radio ready" song. The organ on this sounds extremely good to me. You have the whole package. The only problem is we need some more uploads!

That's the beauty of music,indeed most art forms.
Revisitation isn't repeatition,it is revisiting what made you feel good.

By the time we hit the first chrous it all flows back in.
I cannot get over just how seriously good this sounds.

I forget how long I've been on the internet,must be.... 6 or 7 years I guess,and in all that time it amounts to an aweful lot of music listened to,and a kind of pyramid of opinion in ranking songs...
Nine tenths will fall somewhere between alright and greatly enjoyed,but that last tenth blow you away.
This formily sits in that last tenth.

A song like this makes everything right whilst it plays.

This tune is smokin. Love the lyrics and the music is super. Very commercial. More John Hiatt with a little Melloncamp tossed in. Damn this is a hot band kooder. The quality on this is really high. Nice work and thanks for the listen.

Man you guys are good.

Listening to the song as a whole,this surely must be a pro studio job?
I have a love for slide,so that won me over straight off.
But damn,it's just the whole band sound...
Guys,seriously,you got it alll,and you got it all right.
From the intial song writing,which I imagine was on just an acoustic guitar,through to this final presentation.
A thousand decisions to be made along the way,and for my pennies you called every one right.

SERIOUSLY impressed.

Top notch.

09/12/10 06:57:02PM @dazed:
Great team you guys make. Impressive lyrics and brilliant musicianship. Your choruses all have great hooks. Great writing guys!

I like the Southern Rock feel of this song. You are a versatile songwriter for sure. Another excellent lyric set and the chorus hook is right where it should be and that Skynerd like double lead at the end is classic...well done!


09/08/10 09:14:51AM @eshar:
Fantastic composition...suberb arrangement and faultless delivery.
09/07/10 10:28:09AM @cooter:
Hi Tad. It just played all the way through without any problem for me. Don't know what that could be.

If anyone else has the same problem as tnt, please let me know. I will delete and re-up the tune to see if that helps.

09/07/10 09:53:21AM @tnt:
Great tune! Well played, well sung, well written....high quality work for sure! ...a pleasure...but the track cuts out around 2:05. Happened to be twice....

Hope all is well with you Kooder.

Hey...great xover piece superb from every angle. It's got all it needs ..all the right moves and emphasis combined with skilled writing and playing. Joy to listen to this song. You guys have it all!! ...b
