Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Hi Jackson,
I've been meaning to listen, and just got the chance. 'Red Light Parade' itself is just kindof OK to me. Sounds like you didn't have a whole lot to work with, but from a production standpoint, I think YOU did a good job. Now, 'Best Laid Plans', I really like. Chord changes(cool), overall mix, and as always, your great voice (and Drumming).
And don't get me wrong on 'Parade', it's fine, but just not as exceptional as some of your best stuff. (I expect exceptional from you [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ).
And as always, good engineering job, too.

All this IMHO, Roy

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
I just reread my own post to you. "Just kindof OK to me" sounds far worse than what I meant to communicate to you. After having just listened to 'Best Laid Plans', I just felt 'Parade' wasn't quite on the same level overall, that's all.
Probably my favorite of yours to date is still 'Wrecking Ball', and that helped set the high Jackson standard I go by ("rusty justice"...hehehe). So, just wanted to clarify that...

Roy -

Thanks for your response(s). I didn't think you were being harsh at all. Just to clarify - I had no part in the writing of the Robert McCord songs, and even though I'm playing on them as a session musician, I have no emotional attachment to them. Also, these tracks (and the eight right behind them) are far from over.

Thanks also for your kind words (once again) about my songs, specifically Wrecking Ball.

All that being said, I think your initial instinct on them was right on. There's not a lot of "magic" in these songs. I'm really having to work hard to "sell" the songs to the listener through the production, and that's always a hard thing to do. I'll keep you posted on the progress, and when I've got some complete songs I'll post them for your review.

Thanks again!

"Let Me In" is my most recent addition. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've posted the first two completed songs from my sessions with The Robert McCord band (8 more to go), along with FULL versions of some of my other work (older stuff, most of you have heard).

Please give "Best Laid Plans" and "Perfect Mistake" a spin and let me know what you think.

Just to recap - I engineered the sessions and played drums and sang lead. All songs (music, lyrics and melodoes) written by Robert McCord.

Good job on the finals, IMHO. Again, I really do like 'Best Laid Plans', especially the vocal on the middle part (But if I could feel...), so that's probably you. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Also, that's a poppin'-ass snare sound you're gettin' on the verses. I'll bet your client's lovin the job you've done for him...Good work!

Man, I LOVE 'Let Me In'. I kept waitin for that killer, sweet groove to let up (such a pessimist), but it never does. I'm not at my descriptive best tonight, so I'll just put it all this way. I love the lyrics. I love the piano(great job), and I love your voice, which thank the Lord, is imperfect in a great way.
That about covers my humble opinion. Keep creatin, man.... you're very gifted. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Well, I saw your other post, but finally just got a chance to listen. Man, I LOVE the guitar that's 'panned too far left'. The sound of that thing kills, and the player chugs the whole song along. Also, the female 'demo singer from Nashville' blows so many famous singers out of the water, it ain't funny.(Usually I would list a few examples here, but you can imagine who I mean). But, anyway, great songs. You can be proud of this work. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks to each one of you,
