Larry Cann / Songs / Much Too Young

Gutsy

Why do I say gutsy? To redo a son by such an iconic Artist is crazy gutsy. Now I never heard the original but I will say this: The recording quality on this tune is great. Instrumentation is spot on. The lead guitar is really sweet. Arrangement is open and the mix is crystal clear. The BGV's sit right where they should. Actually, you can hear every single instrument the way it should be heard. No small task as there is alot going on here musically. I am a violin guy so the fiddle be working on this one all day long. Song is uptempo and is a feel good song. And I am much too young to feel this damn old is something I can relate to. Great job on this tune and look forward to great new tunes from you

Smooth and enjoyable!

It takes nerve, courage and great talent to do a cover of a Garth Brooks song. This rendition and singer has all if the above. The recording is professional and the musicians playing are too. Larry's voice is both laidback and has perfect tremolis at the right places. Some of the words are cut a bit short, but it does not take away from the entirity of the overall impression. Great job!

Much Too Young

Great guitar picking and a very nice fiddle arrangement! Strong, Good Clear Vocals and Backup very well mixed. Just what a great Traditional Country Song should be. Catchy, Easy Listening and the tune Flows very well. I was lucky to get Byron Berline and Brantley Kearns, great fiddle players, to record my country Album "Johnny O And Friends" Please have a listen on UTube for my entire Album and Videos. Keep up the great work and the excellent recording quality! All the Best! Johnny O

Still one Ace left in the hole

Garth Brooks is what I call a modern day country legend. He was the first in what was the new wave of country superstars that cam out of the 1980's and afterward. I'll tell you the truth, I don't know many of his songs or George Strait's songs either, but I know way more of Garth's hits than George's. Larry takes this classic song with it's timeless message of lost youth and the pain that accompanies it and makes it all his own. The simple musical arrangement coupled with his lonesome vocal treatment paints the tableau of a man who is aged beyond his years and feeling the pressure from the procession of the younger generation nippin at his heels. Larry really puts his heart and soul into this song's vocal performance and gleans a new found deeper meaning from Garth's original lyrics. As it turns out Larry can still find one last ace in the hole in this ole Garth Brooks tune.

Hi

I was not expecting Texas Sound from Australia..You did a Good Job on it ( specially in the second part of the song )..I like arrangement and Heart in Vocal Part..I'm sure that many people will like it on life Concerts.. as a Radio Stations ( because is a cover song ) make sure that You have a permission from Publisher to record it and avoid complications...Try to send It to Them and let see what will happen..is possible that They will play It.. I wish You good Luck with pitching.. Good Job.. I like it..

Great job

Larry Can you did a really great job. This is a perfect cover, but you managed to put your own style to the song. It is perfectly arranged and produced. Especially I like the acoustic guitar work - it fits very well. Also your voice is very clear, sits well in the mix and the lyric is very easy to understand. Only thing I am missing a bit are some more backing harmonies. But I am nagging at a high level.

Much Too Young

Hi Larry. Absolutely love your guitar work. Really great voice and really like the progressive addition of the instruments. For some reason, I can hear your words much clearer than Garth's. I like the inflections of your voice at various places in the song. The mixing is awesome. I can't say that there is anything that I would change; maybe except dang old instead of d__n old. lol I have to say that I like this version even better than the original. ;) Keep on keepin it country my friend. Blessings, Trev. :)

Much to Young Review

Fiddle brings you into this great song with precision and the vocals are clear and in perfect harmony. The guitar runs are clear and blends in as if the strings are doing the melody along with lyrics also, this is a great cover on a song that sta Yes up in the charts the first time around, take othe time to listen to Mr. Cain’s rendition of Much to Young and you will understand how good of a cover it is. Enjoy our mate to the south from down under , great job, In’s and bas and drums are suttle

A Good Solid Country Song

This is a solid sounding country song with a good mix sound wise. I certainly sympathise when hearing about long trips to Dalby, as I play there around once a month or so myself. Also the line 'much too young to feel this damn old' certainly touches a chord. The sound mix overall is very well balanced with nice EQ ing on all the tracks and good acoustic sounding guitar solos. A great country voice and those little bits of fiddle make the song a winner and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Takes me back. Country reflavored.....

I was absolutely mesmerized. Sounded somewhat like John Conlee but, a little more melodious. It was refreshing and soothing. Think your rendition was awesome. Keep it up. Look forward to hearing more.
