Description : This one is a cover of the Donovan classic rock song. Always was a fan, the Greatest Hits album is worthy of being in your record collection. Season of the Witch is my fav of his. Bass, drum, acoustic and a few electric guitar tracks, me singing, 2 pads, a trumpet and a french horn. Made a few adjustments to the mix, brought out the horn, bass singing a bit more.

Wayne, back in the 60s in the Chicago area, there was a radio station 89 WLS AM. This song stayed in heavy rotation for weeks. Even the little garage band I played in performed it at the high school dance. The bass player was a baritone and did the lead vocals! It's amazing how a great song like this affects the memory. Thank you for taking me back to the day.

Cool how songs can bring you to a place in time. The song That's Just the Way It Is by Bruce Hornsby takes me back to my first job splicing fiber optic cable all over the southern US. I picture myself driving across a cotton field in Alabama to get to the railroad tracks where the cable ran adjacent to and along it's path. That song was so overplayed by the only station we could get, he! Thankfully I still like the song.

Take care Mark! Thanks!

What a GREAT! version of this classic, gritty, raw emotions, & simply wonderfully done!...My father owned a treasure chest of music of every genre from blues, rock, classical & everything in between. I use to have a field day flicking through & listening to all these great old songs :) Your version here, I like. Kudos!

Thanks!

Didn't stray too much from the original, kept it in the ballpark.

Like your father I have discs(over 500) of almost every kind of music from Civil War music, Cowboy classics, bluegrass, oldies right up to todays music. Love it all and can get as much inspiration from Hank Williams as I get from Trent Reznor.

Take care!

I didn't know quite what to expect when I clicked "play". It's an interesting choice for a cover... But bloody hell, you id an amazing job! I had a massive grin throughout. And I was singing along by the end. Absolutely loved it! Maybe you should give Season of the Witch a go? I'm a Hurdy Gurdy Man myself :D

Fave, of course.

far out, Wayne! hearing the love you put into this vibe, takes me back to days mining the cutout bins and discovering all manner of madcap genius. speaking as your agent, we need to start releasing 45s of your originals and put your covers on the b-sides. it’s time to rebuild civilization.

Hola amigo Wayne, hay temas que nunca pasan de moda, sobretodo gracias a músicos tan buenos como tú que nos alegran el día refrescándonos la memoria y haciéndonos pasar un buen rato con versiones tan poderosas y tan bien estructuradas como esta. La canción de por si misma, ya es muy buena, pero tú le has aportado tu toque personal, tu carácter y esa voz tan especial del que soy un gran fan. Que tengas un buen día hermano. Paz y salud.

Very cool cover Wayne - great arrangement, love the horns and sounding pretty smooth on the vocal there too mate : )

Thanks! I ditched the lead, shortened the song a little. Did a little fixing to the mix, got the horns louder, after listening they were a little buried.

I tried to sing more on this one rather than just bark out the vocals, like I will be doing on the next one, he.

I kept close to the original, added a few different things and ditched the lead, it made the song too long.

Thanks!

Great version of a classic. I used to have an lp of a women called Julie Driscoll singing season of the witch, loved that song but never knew it was written by Donovan. Anyway nice work man.

Al his music is playable, basic chords and structure. I could do Season of the Witch, played along with it earlier. Here is his version:

I think this was in the Minions movie, fairly recent flick, exposing it to a younger audience.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).
