An interpretation of a song from a quite well-known album by a certain Mr. David Jones.

My (very late) entry to the Bowie thing.

Wonderful. I think these might be my favorite vocal tracks I've heard from you, they sound really great.

Nice, sounds like it's off an album.

This is so good.

Yeah, the production sounds amazing, it has a lot of layers and there's a lot of great details that make it sound like something legitimately from the 70s. The voices stand out because you got a very different sound this time. I think if someone had played this for me without saying it was you, I wouldn't have recognized it.

Of course I'm not saying "it sounds great because it doesn't sound like you!". I'm a big fan and what I'm saying is "wow, you never cease to surprise."

Or put in a single sentence, this sounds really good, man. Congratulations.

Thanks, mica.
It's funny, it started out just being a straight piano/acoustic guitar thing but towards the end I added those little electric guitar stabs and all of the sudden it took on this sort of Stealers Wheel vibe ('70's!) which I thought was sort of amusing. Not where I thought it would end up when I started, but there you go. I was worried about my warbling falsetto a bit but ended up not deleting it for once. Also trying out a new mic preamp (birthday) so maybe vocals sound a bit different because of that as well.

Cheers dobie and umbĂș!

Yeah, there's some serious, beautiful grease that brings everything together. Awesome, awesome piece.
