Top drawer stuff @Leonard Scaper! Great vocal arrangements and some really nice guitar picking. There is something interesting going on rhythmically in the verses that for some reason reminds me of Jackson Browne - Lives in the Balance (another great protest sog btw).
My only nit is that the lead vocals are lacking a little warmth but that is no biggie for sure.
Fab one, respect.

@gabrivux ......thanks so much for checking this one out, Gabri, and for your appreciation.  :)

@Dutchbeat ..........great to hear you singing along, DB!!!!

@Jambrains ...........I'll take a Jackson Browne reference any day!! I appreciate your comments very much, particularly about the vocals. I fussed over the EQ on these vocals more than usual because I may not have captured them quite right in the room........pull out some 200....put some back in....mess with the 400....had to let them go at one point. Funny thing is....I put this track up as a reference on the session I'm mixing right now and was kind of cringing when I heard the vocal come in. Hey.....one of these days.....

Love to sit "behind the board" on a mix with you some day, man!

Not nearly perilous enough, so I came back for another dose.
Kind regards, Gus
