It's been dry mid to i-70s here south of Boston.

Great sleeping weather in the 60s with a nice breeze.

Well, it took 2 days, but I got the power steering fixed, the oil changed, and all the brakes replaced on the van.  Tomorrow it's the brakes on the car.  And then all the plow truck work...  ???

I'm going to go ahead and post this, but realize that it needs some work.  I am going to make some fairly big changes to it.  For one, my family says the Irish accent thing has to go!

Good song BD

Regarding the Irish accent...I dont think its too over the top, although the word "old" in your introduction sounds a wee bit phony and codish, otherwise it sounds quite authentic.

Being born in Ireland and living most of my life in Scotland, I have to laugh at some of the attempts at these accents, as most are just so OTT its ridiculous.

I`m not sure why you want to include the spoken intro as the song stands on its own very well, but if you really want to keep it, then I might tone down the word"old".

Just my opinion but I hope it helps!!

Good song, BD.  Cotton mentioned possibly not doing to the spoken intro, and I would agree with that, except you never know what might or might not be an interesting or 'catchy' part of a song.

Personally, I might just delete everything up to 0:37 and start there.  But that's just me, and like I said, you don't know till you actually put it out there for some listener feedback.

Either way, I like it, and the Irish accent thing doesn't bother me...

I'm sure Ag would love the visit, Neil, but when you get there he would definitely let you know that it's "nacho beer"...  (-!)

Thanks everyone! If anyone else has additional comments, let me know.

As of right now, I think I am going to keep the older 33RPM vinyl feel for the first part, but cut out the talking. Doing a dichotomy of old and new was the original concept, and I think I want to stick with that. The vocals need better mixing and I may rerecord them as well.

I like it. I like the difference between the two halves, almost as if you were challenged to do that.  ;)


I see where you were going with the talking but I would suggest either leaving it out or adding some pub background noise so it sounds live. That's where I picture a talking performer.
