Just my first time listening, and I dig all the tracks for various reasons, but...That Walker (track 6) dude has some kind of talent,no? Another one I'm liking is track 15 by the Lowlies. Track 16 is interesting.Nasty sound on the lead break. Whoever recorded it probably has a wonderful father. :)

That's all for the first run through. I need to listen to it a few more times to have it all grow on me. Overall a wonderful disc

11)Fake It-Very good recording..cool Beatles vibe then takes ya on a left turn into the minor..very cool
12)Saint Anthony-Super lead guitar work and killer vocals..some Byrds-like chimes
13)Uncertainty-Quirky-in a good way--would make a cool production music cue for a film
14)Pretend It's Not September-Excellent recording...beautiful/soulful vocals...strong 60's vibe
15)Rock & Roll For The Broken Hearted-Cool power pop classic...nice guitar figures and arrangement
16)Feelings-Very cool vocal..hip guitar figures with a very nice lead break
17)Laredo Sunset..how the hell did these guys get on thi cd/?! Like the tone of a baritone guitar,,cool bass figure and drums...visual
18)Real People Blues-Diggin' the vocal stylings..hip and bluesy,,cool changes

I have to second Mr. Walker's track. When I first heard that song I was amazed. Fantastic playing!

Glad it arrived Scotty. Thanks to all the reviewers who have taken the time to comment. I look forward to many more. I would like to make the post deadline for the week so place your orders in the next couple of hours if you want them to leave today.

Too funny. I wish I did have a voice like him. In any event no, I am the only one playing and singing on that little ditty George..........well all except for my EZ Drummer program bashing away on one of the tracks of course. 8)

A big thank you too all involved with volume 4. Thanks to Rikk, Peter, all the artists who contributed a song, plus anyone else behind the scenes that I am not aware off. This is without a doubt my favorite CD of the four. Not to say the first three aren't good, but this one just stands out in my opinion. Even the cover photos are good. I especially like the back cover showing a neck through with flamed wings. It will take many more listenings to determine which songs I like best, there are too many to pick from.
Kudos :!: :!: :!:

Given the CD a proper listen and the two tracks that are my favorites are Whiskey Rainclouds-Bobs yer uncle This is a fantastic track everything from the opening percussion, acoustics and vocals have a great quality and feel.I dont know who the member is that is responsible for this but my hats off,its a top tune Well done.
Also cause i know Kira i thought i would have heard this but i havent before.Real people blues is a great. Kira great smokey guitar and that moothie is awesome.Well done Kira great flow and foot stompin magic here.Where are the real people and the ones know know what love is for?i just found a few on the RRF CD 4
Well done to all who contributed this is a joy to listen to everyone did a great job in making this come to fruition.
