A GIRL LIKE YOU

Description
The show must go on...
Completely lost my voice for a few days due to a severe cold, but I made a virtue of necessity and recorded these vocals (always wanted to sound like Robbie Robertson, lol :-) )
My old friend bingsolex helped me out with a great guitarpart. I did the keys, drums and (real) bass.
We hope you like this blues

Lyrics
A girl like you

They told me once
They told me twice
They told me three times
That it's so unwise
To hang around with a girl
With a girl like you
But oh you pretty girl
What else can I do

Well, they say you're so cheap
They say that you flirt
But that is no reason
To treat you like dirt
They might know you better
They might know you better than me
But oh you pretty girl
You look so good to me

cool track cees (as always). bing's guitar work is fantastic and your trademark gravel vocal sounds as excellent as ever (cold or no cold). i'm always amazed at your production skills.....this sounds so clear.

This is slick....
And very real blues, that's just what it is right there.....
I can hear your voice is weak but you've used what you had
to get the job done.....
You make me want to try and sing again, not to sure about that though
I just may give it another go.....

Really well done My Man.....Solid piece work.....

Very smooth groove on this. Love the minor blues feel. It's ok to have a cold ... vocally adds to the whole blues thing. Actually your vocals sound warm and gravelly. Bing has a sweet feel and tone on that strat. Amazing clear and simple mix. Really like this KC! Downloaded for my drive to work.

Raspy vocals, hot guitar licks and a femme fatale. What's not to like? Tight playing and crystal clear production.

Nice Blues
Very good. Smooth, melodic and interesting. Bing does a good job on the guitar. For some reason reminds me a little of Steely Dan.

Very old theme, this one, like any tune about love, i suppose!

Nicely done as always, with great production and beautiful rhythm and cool guitar.

Vocals sound good, too, though i hope you are better now!

Much enjoyed!

Loved this one...
A bittersweet bluesy number done just how it should be done--I like you vocal on this even if it's an off day for you here Cees (it gives you a different but very appealing sound and suits this piece just fine). As always, you are ably accompanied by Bing on this and I don't compliment him as much as I should--he is great. Thanks for the very fine work! Michael

A nice jazz tone
Bingsolex is getting out of that guitar. The mix is nice and your vocals sound great. Especially like the reality of the bass.

'snot bad at ALL!
bravo on that intro - i'm really into how a song initially presents itself, and i like Bing First Thing aren't head colds good for this kinda song? just a little thicker, just a little lower than usual.... oh yeah, your head cold works for me!

i like that there's a lot of instrumental soloing here - cuz it's good!
you were so solid on the keys and bass, and Bing the Old Friend preaches like he's on fire - not a burning one - more like a slow simmer just about to boil.

this bluesy, sexy vocal style suits your congestion well, Cees.

i enjoyed my listen,
anne

Authentic
Hi KC. Love the guitar intro! The organ gives this a wonderful authentic feel and your "gravel" vocals hang in there just fine. Some tasty blues to get me through the hospital blues. D/L. Thanks to you both. Take care, Peter.

I'll tell you once, this is smashing!
Cool, groovy beachside blues. Sizzling lead work.
Effortlessly cool
Les_Kloo said 2337 days ago (July 21st, 2011)
So unwise
Maybe, but what's to lose? I say, go for it. Bingsolex is very good. Very tasty playing. I like your gravelly vocals here (suits the tune, I think), and the (real) bass sounds great. Top production values. Nice pic, too. Heh, yeah.
