lovely tune

this is a very nice tune, love the intro with the harmonica, there are certain things that do not simply work with this song, the vocals being a big issue, i feel there isnt enough energy in the vocals, he is struggling in places too, the production of the song is quite poor and the bass sounds out of tune in some areas and making way too many mistakes! the overall arrangement is a little strange too, the song sounds like it was recorded using a home recording program. i did like the guitar work though.

Well elaborated Folk-Song

The song become interesting because of the vocals and harmonica which make me remember of Neil Young. The intro feels like a story and the songwriter has a great talent to give an account in words about someone or something, including all the relevant characteristics, qualities, or events. The slidly melancholic feelings come from the heart and touching the soul. Overall good songstructure between the stanzas and refrain embedded into instrumental based music matched into the 70`ties.

Beautiful song

From the opening sounds of the Harmonica, the song just pulled me in and made me want to hear more. There was a pretty, but brief guitar solo, but the overall tonal color of the song was the strongest part. Sadly, the vocal throughout each Verse was very hard to distinguish, as each word was hard to hear; the Chorus was a bit easier to hear, but still required some effort. I think a remix of the song is in order so as to bring the lead vocal out in front.

One Day in the Past

Every song needs to tell a story, from the beginning to the end. Each instrument needs to be recognized throughout the song. I believe you have accomplished this quite well. Also the composition is a beautiful blend of music and I particularly enjoy the chorus. You have created a beautiful piece of music my friend!

words and song

focusing just on the words my first comment is clarity and therefore meaning are essential and as recorded the guitar is too forward in the mix and distracts from the words.....the voice which could be brought forward is perhaps a little apologetic when in fact this is a beautiful song and the words very melancholic-feels like the singing could be stronger and less tentative because the harp is amazing and frankly the overall affect of the song is beautiful-but can i remember any of the words ? well just a couple!

In MY Opinion

Greetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, Consider backing off the processing on your vocals a little , not singing in a tunnel, more natural sound, but, not dry and flat either. I really enjoyed the message in this song. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, and extremely peaceful. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny

According sound

This ballad is very beauty, the accordion sends an original sound, while the voice clean and safe remembers old romantic songs of the 70s. I like the duet in the background and the soft melody.
