Description
Just another experiment into the production side of things, as oppose to actual song style stuff. Plenty of new 'songs' to come though! Hope you like anyway :)

samples are taken from various laurel and hardy episodes, and also an old interview with Stan Laurel.

Impressive!
Really effective piece of music, this. Held my interest throughout. Loved the vocals, particularly.

You really seem to have a mastery of the production. Just sounds a pro job, though i'm no authority!

Brilliant.

cheers Marc
like alot of my other i felt this one goes on a bit, and to be honest i never really properly structured it, just went with the flow. I'm real glad you found it interesting though.
Thanks for your kind words!

You seem to be moving into movie music with the greatest of ease.
I can really hear this as a theme tune for a TV program or a film soundtrack.
Good use of samples and the adding bonus of your vocals add another level to it.
Great production, playing and singing
enjoyed
cheers

thanks!
i'm glad you liked it, these last few posts have been a bit random to be honest. The whole film thing is also a bit of a change, but i've learned a lot from this style of production so it's all good. Thanks for the kind words!

Great job Michael! I love those vocal track harmonies. I would expect to hear this piece on some radio pretty soon, not that I would like everything that goes on in radio but this one would make me definitely pause and listen. Thank you and keep making music you have great talent!

Wonderful
The vocals and harmony from the beginning are wonderful. Nice and rich. They segue so smoothly into the groove. All around, a really great tune.

Lush vocals and mix
at first that delayed percussion sound made me think of the unwanted noise my chair creaking makes when I'd trying to record me vocals... but I got into it. I'd put this under "Pop mainstream" not Ambient .. so it reaches the audience it's for sure suited to. The samples made me think of "19" and the overall extremely polished vocals made me think of many a successful boy band... some kinda "Air" like touches to the production. Very good all round.

i always come and listen to a brit i've never noticed before. WOW this is fucking amazing. ok...just a quick digression here...are you by any chance related to your home town's ex-footy manager?...or are you fed up with the question? ok...back to the music. did i tell you that this is fucking amazing? did i? your harmonies are incredible - INCREDIBLE...do you hear me? the future's bright...the future's MJMcM. you are to music what matt le tissier is/was to football.
the end section with the simple harmonies and electronic whistles is absolutely sublime.
