Have seen one of your other videos and enjoyed that one as well. Nice easy feeling and "homey" touch. Slight blip in the sax playing (why didn't you redo this?). If vocalist was a sax player there would be a recommendation to practice "long tones". Her voice is basically good (in tune, good feeling and inflection, etc.), but tends to go into a nervous waver instead of vibrato some times. Nailing tonal quality/control on long held notes is most important for singers and sax players as both can wreck what is otherwise a good sound/tune by losing control. Not much work needed to make this top pro quality. Whatever you do don't lose your easygoing feel as it connects really well.

Loved it. Wonderwall? Who'd a thought. Love the singers voice, hairs stood up on the back of my neck. I think any criticism would be trying to get that final polish to perfection. It's very close. Sax solo needs some polish but the sound is excellent and the rhythm section have a moment of divergence but it melts back together pleasantly. Little bits here and there but the whole thing was very enjoyable.

What next? AC/DC or a bit of Motorhead. I'd love to hear your interpretation of the ace of spades or perhaps something from Nivana's nevermind.

Excellent. The vocals are a bit shocking when they come in. The effect you've used seems a little over the top but a few bars in, as the ears adjust to it, it seems fine. Maybe I was just surprised. Very enjoyable. Some very versatile accomplished musicians you have there. Is the drummer on valium?

Colin thanks again for your kind words, and regarding our drummer we only recorded with one mic so on the acoustic kit he only used the hi hat and the snare rim and it was a pretty fixed rhythm so we are lucky he didn't fall asleep :)
