Kristal was my introduction to digital recording but I just can’t use it now. Its so
cumbersome I find. Was Mattius the greater of studio one? I never understood the connection.

Great work everyone!

A worthy winner in my book. This song had the stickibility factor. A sweet (almost lullaby-esque) retro vibe that reminded me of dire straits song don’t worry.

As for the other four retro-Bates - well done guys. All unique and in their own style. I particularly liked RK with his grunge, Sugar, Smashing Pumkins type rock out.

Wow, thank you voters!

Well done to everyone who enters these challenges! As I, and many others have said before, the real challenge is with ourselves. No entry is 'better' than any other. It's just a current appeal thing.
Yes, the entries are getting better every time.
I'm constantly noticing improvements in recording, mixing and production abilities in every member here, along with a desire to improve. I'm sure this is the real reason for the challenge's existence.

I feel a little humbled, since my entry was a last minute decision, followed by a hectic few hours work. But also pleased, that I managed to express myself in a way that was appealing enough to members to crawl it's way to the top of the list.  :-[

I hadn't heard this track before, Al. I see exactly what you mean.....  8)

Thanks again, for the votes ('fraid the choccy guitar and licorice pick are both eaten now....), much appreciated.
I really need to put some more stuff together.... especially myself.  ;D

I'll have to look that one up OT, like WS I haven't heard that one...

Actually, I was getting a bit of a Lou Reed vibe from White's track lol

Congrats  White that was some good competition...
I struggled a bit with my vote... took me to last minute to come up with the order and could still flip em on different day.
Enjoyed them all!
If.... it's a temporary lull... why am I bored right outta my skull?

Well done and congratulations White.

I can only echo most of the replies here, it was an extremely tough choice as they were all quality songs.

I think at some stage I had everyone in first place.

Just to add that 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places were only separated by a single vote between each. So anyone could have easily ended up in second place.

For my entry, it had little in common with Tom Petty (truth by told, I had forgotten about that aspect). But I had a lot of fun coming up with something in a short space of time. Building up a wall of sound for the chorus but not quite sure which way to go with verses (so I had two very different versions).

Also, I could lie and say the out of time keys at the start are symbolic of something starting from scratch, learning it’s path, stumbling lmong the way.

But it was just poor playing really.

Great songs folks congrats White polar bear ,  huh ? Kind of had a native american feel I like that lol

I find very difficult if impossible to play like or in someone else’s style other then my own . If I was to try any it would have be Rush lol but I stop playing to them pretty much in the early 90’s and just played me own stuffs lol

Hmmmm, I had forgotten about the Tom Petty bit.....  :-[
Just as well I was much influenced by learning 'Breakdown'.....  :P

Interesting to hear what styles you guys are associating with Stop, Start again.
I was thinking Dylan, crossed with Petty with a little Van Morrison thrown in, for luck..... But, mostly me.... ;)

Then you weren’t listening  :P

Actually the wording was “something Tom Petty would record” not “in the style of”  :P

Subtly different I think  :P

To be honest, it doesn’t really matter.....as long as there’s a good song it would qualify lol

I was actually quite impressed with how much Tom I heard throughout. Not often that happens for me in this type of challenge.
