How would we know?

Mr. "The post has come and my compilation CD has arrived" :pottytrain1:

Kiss my ass, I'm stuck out here in the desert with both kinds of music on the radio - Country and Western.


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can't wait to hear it.

Oh, you guys better not spoil the end of the movie for us either, keep it under your hats. :wink:

All I can say, is that it ain't over till the fat tenor sings :wink: .

And yes, I wholeheartedly agree with Richard... there are some real gems on those 3 discs, I'm blown away by the overall quality :wink: .

It's well worth the wait, gents :P .

You are responsible for my cleaning coffee off my keyboard this morning.

I'm jealous, you guys are listening back to it again now, really sinkin' your teeth into it.

It's a postal holiday in the U.S. today.... :cry:

I have to say, a favorite of mine is Robbie's "Caravan of Love"

Awesome tune, great harmonies....great, great song.

Not only were you able to complete this huge CD compliation project, but make such a great tune!

Are their any left?

I was busy building my custom desk for several months last year and missed the order information.

My PC speakers are pretty puny OEM so I don't listen to much music on them.

Must have 3 disc collection :!:

Drum, Ioni

I'd dearly love to see Drum and Skygod meet and collaborate, I swear these two would make Kraftwerk stand up and take notice of the competition. The groove, the texture, the patches....as an avid programmer I loved the patches. Great recording, hot mix, no clip.
Strong work Chris.

Pianojam, All made of love

Poppy, groovy, smooth vocal delivery. This is mainstream radio-play stuff why aren't you famous? :wink: Strong songwriting, both music and lyrics. Two songs in, I'm impressed by the consistent high quality of the recordings, good production.

Short, Peur De Rien Blues

Coool, French blues! The global nature of the forum is probably my favorite thing about it, it's a shame D.C. couldn't make it to T-stock, but hey, he's got that new estate to pay for. :wink:

Tight sound, great playing, great vocals. Nice bluesey feel to music and lyric (I understood maybe three words :oops: ). Once again, the recording is excellent, I'm very impressed having heard the '04 cd at Geno's, Utah is right - folks have sure learned how to use their G's
Very good Short, I really like the surprise ending! :thumbleft:

Bassoprofundo, I Believe

So do I Chuck! Fun tune, sounds like a Robert Hunter tune as done by the Grateful Dead. 8) You demonstrate roadhouse blues in fine fashion, pretty f'n good for an old guy. :wink: I guess I'm gonna stop commenting on the recording soon as these tunes are all so well engineered.

TonyM, Maria

Theremin? Whales? Opera singer? :lol: What is that intro?
A classic hard rocker done up Croatian style. I sing along with the one word I know (Maria) been jamming on this one since you first posted it. You guys sound like leather and chains, worthy of any Sabbath fan. Great recording job. 8)

DJ Bud, The Military

Good job Marine. It's a shame you can't do hip-hop on the G though. :lol: Strong recording, I think you need to hook up with Geno and Drum for the G electronica band. A groovy tune that provides some fun while provolking thought. :salute:

Jeffree, Shades of Sharya

Another tune I'm familiar with, five-stars on my WMP with a lot of plays, what more can I say? :D

Sleepless, Seratonin

A quick and a quick guitar, this acoustic/orchestral number is a beautiful and romantic bit of work. A fine one tunesmith, but then yours generally are. :glasses7:

Capptain Tudan and Friends, Good to Go

Been jammin' on this one since before Texastock and had the immense pleasure of playing with these gentlemen at that event. The lyrics by Sleepy seem to have been written with this vocalist in mind. It gets down, it gets funky, it gets back up again..... :meter5:

Birdz Sessions, You Said

Another one I've been listening to for a while, strong tune, great production. Your tom sound makes me jealous. Nice change up in the middle. Cool.

Dcarlton, Catfish John

I love your delivery of these classic tunes, you guys are excellent players with a very authentic sound that you capture on your G very well. With the resurrection of Bluegrass currently going on you guys should have no problem finding all the work you want. It's cool these songs are being kept alive as well, great job. :D

The Group, 8804

Not bad for a bunch of old guys, indeed. You've already seen my review of this one, another WMP five star tune with lots of plays. :wav:

Bluesky, Champagne & Flowers

Ahh yes, I sort of remember those days... :oops:
Nice composition, unique, cutting guitar sound on the lead. Once again a loud clean mix this whole disc sounds much more polished than I expected.

Utah, India

I've liked this one ever since you posted it man. A fine tribute to Mr. Harrison if you ask me. Great job on the loops and the sitar sound was excellent.

Short, Jammin'

A great turn on a reggae classic. Your drum sound absolutely kills me, I'd really like to see how that's accomplished - did you get pics of the set-up? The production on this one is top notch and the guitar solo was sweet as well.

Bassoprofundo, Papa is Always Right

Are you sure you're not Jerry Garcia? I had the pleasure of seeing the Dead more than once and your tunes really put me mind of them. Strong recording another one with good drum sounds.

Lastly I have to say that in addition to the overall quality of the recording on this disc, the level from tune to tune was nicely ballanced as well. Nothing blew my speakers away or lacked punch. I suspect Robbie put some effort into that. How 'bout it Robbie what did you do to accomplish that?

I am humbled to share disc space with you lot. Very good work.

Don ("61") you should be a reviewer for Rolling Stone Magazine. I need to listen for a couple of more weeks to all the fine contributions. It really is amazing how each song offers the listener something very different. Maybe we should develop regioanal AW16G tours. Thanks for the kind words on "You Said". Thats Larry "Birdz" Vigneault at the board and playing all that funky guitar. Your comment about the Tom sound on the kit...we try for that Abbey Road sound.

Rich

Wow, what an outstanding job putting these CD's together. The quality and scope of the music is incredible. So many different styles and grooves, definitely an international flavor to the collection. As someone mentioned, folks are really getting to know their G's and it really shows in the quality of the recordings. Great job all who contributed.

We had a CD listening "semi-bash" last night at Birdz place (Larry). What a blast listening to the excellent contributions.

So far my fave tunes are:

Seratonin....it's classic Sleepy..what more can I say...I don't usually dig any kind of orchestral arrangment in a rock tune, but Richard consistantly breaks down walls for me....plus its nearly impossible to pigeonhole Sleepy's music into any one category.

Catfish John...love the Dobro...and as one of the few tracks here with all acoustic instruments (I think) this one really stands out..excellent stuff.

On The Beach With You....this is a great tune, but is it just me or does this belong in a porn film? :lol: :lol: It's freaking awesome though, make no mistake! Definitely movie soundtrack material....errrr....any kind of movie. :wink:

Drum and Bass: I wish we heard more from Anndra this is just a glimpse of what the guy can do.


These are just a few that have jumped out at me so far....I concur with everyone about the quality of the recordings and the compilation. Most everything I've heard sounds like it was recorded on a pro setup.

More to come when I get time to peruse disk 3

Thank you very kindly, Eric. It wasn't meant to be a song or anything like it for that matter, but something for me to participate with. Big thanks to Robbie for the both the encouragement and for allowing me a last minute entry.

I'm sitting in my newly decorated and furnitured (?) studio and my new audio setup should be done afore this week is out. A few days learning it and given that I now have broadband I should be able to join you and TuDan and the rest fully and properly on the land of colab.

Cannae Wait - At last!

My setup is so unfinished right now that I don't have anything to listen to the CD on as yet - I'm reading reviews of songs I can see and cannot hear :?

I made a spreadsheet of the songs and ran every song through the statistics feature of SoundForge telling me what the average signal level per channel is, put that in the spreasheet. I partially based the decision on which song is to go on which disk on that. So one disc should be slightly louder than the other.

I saw this guy play at DijonStock. You ain't seen (heard) nothing yet! Look at the pic in the booklet, it says more than a thousand words!

DJ Bud: Another good mix..strong message
Jeffree: Love that jazzy feel with the acoustic-wonderful. Nice changes in the arrangment. Good production.
Sleepless: Great vocal..nice acoustic..very nice arrangement of the instrumentation.
Capptain: Super strong vocals...very strong tune all around..love that funk and the sohistocation of the arrangment. Production is top notch. Oooo baby...nice sax also.
Birdz Sessions: (My buddies)
Dcarlton: good song...good vocals and production--good mood change on the CD after Capptain and Birdz Sessions' tunes.
The Group: love the tune...very jazzy with excellent talent and production values.
Bluesky: nice arrangement..good vocal..strong production..

I can't possibly write my feelings about all the wonderful music on this comp, without taking up three pages. So, kudos to all that participated.

As for my game ball, I am giving it to the one that put it all together.

Robbie.
