Description
Another Track from 'On The Fiddle' - I'm sure i have a mastered version with slightly pared back violins around somewhere - as it is, this is the rough mix version.

Chaz sings on the second verse and fiddles - I do the rest of it.

As it's July 21st and sunny - I thought I'd be topical and post it..........let's all go Holiday everone!!!

Lyrics
I'm leaving home on Sunday
I'm heading for the beaches and the sandy shore
Strange to think that someday
We were hoping and were thinking that there's so much more

But Baby don't you fear
I'll fix it when I'm back next year

I'm on Holiday


I'm leaving here on Sunday
I'm waiting for my luggage and my taxi cab
Hard to think that one day
I'll be thinking you're the best thing that I ever had

But Baby don't you fear
We're fine for yet another year

We're on Holiday

We'll take out towels down to the beach
And give 'em away
D'y think out grasp exceeds our reach?
Or does it today?

Anyway

I'm leaving here on Sunday
I'm leaving with some music and a fancy tan
I'm back to work on Monday
I'm working in an office as a Salaryman

But Baby don't you fear
Your prescence is forever near

Forever Holiday

Delightful
A delight for any season. The fiddle seems a tad hot in my speakers, by the way. I love the clean sound.

On Holiday - Too Hot! :-)
Hi Tobin - glad you liked the tune. You're 100% right about the mix; there's another slightly toned down fiddle version somewhere.....if only I could find it. Cheers - JC

I like
the fiddle forward in the mix.It just goes to show how different ears try things on differently.Its a good song,nicejob.

Ears.........
Interesting - I wonder the reaction to the fiddles is somehow in context to what you've been hearing beforehand.

As part of the album, it doesn't seems so pronounced. As a stand alone, to me this mix is a bit too shrill in places.

As you say - depends on ears and speakers, etc........

The main thing is - you liked it :-)

It's clouded over here but ...
Nice chirpy tune. To my ears the fiddle is a little over-dominant in the mix, but then fiddles are such wonderful instruments you can't go too far wrong with them. Fun song anyway. :)

Hiya.......
Sorry we couldn't make the sun come out for you :-)

I'll have a good hunt around for the mix which has the fiddle slightly lower in the mix........

/searches forlornly for missing memory stick.....

Fiddle - Hi or low? :-)
Well, the main thing is that you like the song - so thanks for that.

Would be interesting to know if you were listening to it via headphones or speakers.

Hope you remembered the Sunblock.....
