Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.

Brian,

That's a great piece of music. A good strong bass (I always like a strong bass) and a saxophone sound to die for (nice and 'breathy'). You must be pleased with that!

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for having a listen and pleased you enjoyed it, and yes the Korg does seem to like to give a good bass sound to its styles,
I am pleased with the way the piece turned out, and as always there are things I could have done differently and maybe better,
may revisit it later on,

All the best, Brian

Hi George,

Thanks for having a listen and commenting and pleased you enjoyed it, its strange just how many pop /ballad song by english pop groups in the 60s are actually covers for American artist , such as Doris Troy in my case, I originally thought the Hollies wrote and performed it first ? Rod Stewart is another artist that does lots of covers as opposed to original material

All the best, Brian007
