Hey there LesleyK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Mike Sin:

@Matt -- I didn't expect the cool backing vocals to jump in and out there. Nice touch!

Nice set so far, Mr. Sin. hello all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Mike Sin:

Hi LesleyK -- Yeah, these #-disc Trojan box sets were all over the place for cheap 15-20 years ago... they're a bit tougher to find cheap now.

Ooh thank you for the link
  12:42pm John W.:

Mike, why is it that practically anyone tune can be sung and played to a reggae/rock steady beat? I would never had imagined that version of By the Time I Get to Phoenix. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 12:44pm MOM WHIG:

Hey Lesley
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Matt Clarke:

You are so right, John W. There is some magic with the covers.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:45pm LesleyK:

Hi Mom Whig!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Mike Sin:

@John -- Most of the pop tunes that we like are in 4/4 time. All this reggae and rocksteady is in 4/4 as well, it's just that the accents are moved a bit. So, without the time signature changing it doesn't get that complex. The rhythm is moved a bit, but the melodies still fit.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Woo:

I think Trial by Television will be stuck in my head all day. TVOD !
  12:54pm John W.:

Thanks Mike! For that simple reason of 4/4 time, that version of Phoenix works on so many levels. Could you play a rock steady version of "Wichita Lineman"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Matt Clarke:

Great show, Mikey!
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Michael 98145:
