A night alone with you


Good day Don You have put out another catchy tune. The lyrics...A good subject to sing about, A night alone with you... the story of wanting in every day love life. You have a voice that fits with the traditional country sound and the harmonies are great and lifts the song blending well with your voice. The melody is such a pleasant listening foot tapping one and the musicians have done their job well. I like the instrumental that breaks up the song. Once again good work and good musical journey...

Music Appreciation

A Night Alone With You had me from the first note, I started listening not knowing what to expect and realized I was already tapping one foot down and keeping time with the Rhythm. I thought the vocal was heartfelt and very well done. The band was on the money and the fiddle and guitars worked well together, If I was to vote on this tune would vote yes. Good luck with this music Don, Good Job, Your friend , Danny Roberts

Nice intro build up, infectious melody and some nice guitar riffs with some neat violin riffs thrown in for good luck. Nifty piano work and a neat chorus that sticks in your mind. I dont go for many country songs but I really like this one.

love the fiddle intro

The vocals are well done. I love the fiddle and the sound of the guitars . The drum beat keeps everything moving along. The added Harmony works well. The hook of the song works. The fiddle in the bridge is nice.

Review of A NightAlone With You

Another great song by Don Smythe, who is a real country gem. I always enjoy Don's songs. This is what country is all about. Plus I really enjoy Dons ballads a lot. They are down to earth and not over done. Everything that I've heard from Don, has been very good and enjoyable.

A Night Alone With You

We like this song! It is in the classic country style of so many great records. The recording sounds a little less than polished though. It would be nicer if the vocals were tighter when singing together and the instruments would benefit from being balanced a little closer together. The Rhythm Guitar is a little to thin for our taste. It sounds almost like an autoharp instead of a guitar. The song itself is solid though.

I like the production sound and originality. Good job!! I can feel the heart in this showing you put in some dedicated work. I like the vibe and the rhythm sound, I can dig it!!! Sounds like the studio vibe was chill and relaxed!!!!! More artist should study the roots of their culture of art more to be better at their own art. Keep up the good work and stay in the lab creating new material to stay fresh and on your toes. Peace!

A Night Alone With You

A Night Alone With you comes in on a strong two step feel with full acoustic instrumentation comping the melody of the verse. A Traditional Country Folk approach with a familiar formula chord progression, A - A - B - A. Really excellent accompaniment, no one overplays, just tasteful backups allowing the music to breathe and the story to be told. Very Good! Great backups also, singing fine harmony in time, the lead vocalist is reminiscent of Rod McKuen, Merle Haggard's early 70's material, or some of the great Canadian Folk troubadours of the 60's - 70's. I feel people are looking for this music, it is easy listening and comforting in it's appeal. I believe the lead vocalist has a stronger range than displayed here and would encourage them to hold their notes at the end of their phrasing and working the diaphragm. It would bring a little more heat to the kettle. Like The Byrds "Sweetheart at the Rodeo", album, "Pure Prarie Leauge's" seminal work, or "Van Morrison's Tupelo Honey" period.The lyrics center around infatuation, possibilities, and the question "could you also feel the same?" The lyrics are stated simply which really works for this approach. I was stymied when the question of "what would the other's think" came up. I don't believe it is necessary as there is no story as to whom the others are when you could be singing about the depth of your love interest, her eyes, the night air, was she leading you on too, what is your history together? None of these things are delved into so the passion cannot be fully expressed if the listener can't have more of a back story. Hnece, I recommend losing to townsfolk and concentrating on the couple's story completely, or maybe her parent's, would they even approve? "Wake Up Little Susie" is a song that simply brings in a a couple, a social situation, youth, and it is also hinted at in the song title. I like where you are going. Leave all the instrument and backup tracks. Take one more look at the lyrics, and give a more passionate though mellowed approach to the vocals. Marty Robbins could lay it back and slay you at the same time; maybe try going out on a rich crescendo for us listeners.This singer has all that. Just consider it. Peace -

Old school country review

Your tracks are well performed and the song is fairly well constructed. This song feels like it was written in the 1950s or the 1940s. There are many old-school clichés in the song and there are places where the chorus could be more interesting or the melody could be more sultry. This is a sultry type of song and it needs a more sultry melody in my opinion. Feels like it should be more of a ballad than an upbeat happy song about asking a woman for a night alone with her. I can tell that you worked hard on this and it has a charming appeal. I just think you may have gone the wrong direction with the melody and the idea as a whole.

A Night Alone With You review

This is a nice rolling song that has a good country track with a wonderful collection of instrumentation. Dobro, fiddle, solid acoustic guitar and a pretty well written song. The vocals carry the song nicely and if I were to suggest anything to improve this song, I would say to remix the song again and try to get a clearer and more current sounding vocal mix. This one has a little too much reverb on it for today's country. Other than that, I don't have much else to say about this song. I like it. It has a kind of pub-like feel that works well in the structure. Just work on redoing the vocal mix. Good luck moving forward and stay safe!
