    Made me think "James Gang", which is a huge compliment.  Great job.

    Definitely got some late 60's vibe going on there...  cool.    I think the vocals could use maybe just a little more meat but that's personal preference...   The mix sounds good!  
     
    I liked the way the song was structured very much minor key but you kept sneaking in that major chord on the piano.

     Hello Ed and James ,
    You are certainly off to a great start  with this song .
    I dig all the playing for sure ….
    Nice groove , sweet guitar , bass is in the pocket …
    You got all the right ingredients for the main track .
    I hope it's OK if I offer some crits . I agree w Steve . The Vox needs more meat .
    I like the Piano a lot and it may need to come up a little for the solo …
    I'm hearing a group of soulful female background singers in my head as the song plays 
    May be worth considering ? it may take it over the top and fit well with the genre ..
     
    Good Job fellas for sure 
     
    all the best ,
     
    Kenny

    Listened to everyone who said the vocals needed more punch.
     
    Re-recorded the vocal and did a revised mix to give the whole mix a little sheen. Hopefully it worked.

    I think the vocals could use maybe just a little more meat but that's personal preference... 

     
    Hopefully this new version is more betterer?

    Hi Bapu, nice rocking tune, vocals sound fine but a bit detached from the band, like you were in two different rooms.

    Right, like I'm going to remember what the original version sounded like... 
     
    j/k...    It could be placebo, but as best I can recall this vocal track does sound thicker with more meat on the bone; a better match for the music IMO.   The only thing I might do is pan the harmony away from the lead a little for more width.

    I didn't hear the original. I like it and the arrangement.  Regarding the vocal,I would probably  scoop a bit at around 500-700 Hz and perhaps roll off the top end of the reverb tail. EQ.   Minor stuff. YMMV!

    This is great! The instruments are punchy, precise and cohesive and really rock along. The sentiment of the lyric is charming and the timbre of your voice is very appealing. Well done, bapu and Jamesg1213. Thanks for the super listen :)

    good tune.
     
    The bass needs a compressor on it, as it occasionally hits some notes and my system goes bananas with some booming Bapu Bass.
     
    Tight lead.
