Wonderful ! very pleasing to the ear, a great recording of a timeless classic, music and vocals flow flawlessly to once again tell a great story told by many before. Glad to see it continue to travel around the globe where Music is the International language. Fine choice of musicians and singer to deliver the song. I enjoyed it greatly as I am certain anyone else who take the time to listen will also do. Wishing you continued success with it and your music, always a pleasure to listen to anything you offer.

I can hear this tunes being played in a country club with everyone up on the dance floor. I'm not really sure who the woman is that's singing but she seems to fit right in. Keep up the good work Larry.

As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX
