My Style of Music , a letter to a music friend.

My Style of Music
Let me add this thought. I did traditional rock recordings in the eighties; guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, but then evolved to a simpler style, back to basics that I really like. So, should I studio record this or any of my songs, it would not be a retro band attempt from the style of 60 years ago, but a new more simple arrangement, in the new style that most don’t seem to like much, or at best are bewildered that it doesn’t sound like it “should”, in the old style.
At most any studio recording of mine now would involve a lead singer, 2 background singers and one or two standard guitars, and the comments would still be: I want to hear the old style, don’t you? No, not anymore. There were the Beatles and 60 years of imitators in my opinion. We don’t need me to be another. Yes many here are doing original and fine work in this style, and it suits them. Your work is a fine example, but it is not for me anymore.

5th CD Review by Barry

November 12, 2018

This review is from Barry (don’t know his last name) who won a Musea quiz and got my 5th CD as prize – November 2011.

My 9 CD set is virtually all the same, so his words work for all 150 recorded songs.

I’m currently enjoying your album “5TH”, having been pleasantly surprised by the sheer craft and accessibility of your music. I expected something very different and perhaps not so accessible from the progenitor of “post-band” music, but this is simply a pleasure.

Your voice is open, unaffected, and unfailingly musical, a little similar to my ears to Don McLean

The CD is well designed and produced, and makes a fine presentation to anyone you should wish to impress.

Thank you for your gift to me. Guess I’m ‘wised up”.*

Best Regards,
Barry

*My quizzes have the preface, “I don’t dumb down, so you wise up!” That is what he is referring to.
