The Third International / Songs / Tracy's Blues (Live at the Darress)

Blues worth a listen!

Starts off with a good extended intro of a kind of experimental jazz. Then breaks into a nice guitar driven near traditional rock 'n blues. Nice slow and deliberate. Excellent guitar work. Well composed and artfully accomplished. Blues worth a listen! -R.


great version and great bass player! like a lot this version! I'm going to listen the other songs, *regular ones* but i'm enjoying this one a lot! keep working!! ill be looking for your new releases. cheers!


A nice classic ,good feeling . I will share with my friends . I don’t know how describe the song but I think the best way is to listen and enjoy Number one music. Give me a lot of pleasure to discover new musician around the world thank you again.Anton

Jaco Taco

I wasn't sure what to expect when I read that this song was inspired by jaco Pistorius. (Page's sp+elling, not mine).The opening was to be expected but I was very much surprised and intrigued by the body of the track itself, which reminded me of an early 70's britpop that might not be a fair label but reminiscent of King Crimson and gentle Giant... except more accessible. I very much liked this part of the song but I think what you really had here was two different pieces of music.... Hence the title of my review.

Unique sounds with avant garde brilliance!

Ahhh, a chill and sensual tune that lingers in the best of ways... Smooth recording, easy to listen to, refreshing after all the over-saturated sounds being thrown at us these days. A true gem for sure!


The vibe is immediately apparent. The mix is clean while having the roughness of what a track of this period needs. I would say that having this on a late night rock radio station, alongside Hotel California, would not be odd. I'll say 4 stars because there is a little harshness in the cut on the mids, but the music shines straight through as being exceptional. Very nice, guys!

Tracy's Blues Live

Tracy's Blues is a really well layered song with a relaxing mellow vibe. The guitar work is excellent, and had a David Gilmour feel about it. The vocals sound excellent. Very cool song, sounds good live.

Nice and clean

Interesting way to start a song. Rarely do you hear a bass guitar playing harmonics. It sounds good here but I'll bet it's much better live. When the full band kicks in its a much fuller and delightful sound. Whoever ran the board did a great job catching the band's performance. I also should add that the band does an excellent job with this slow very melodic blues tune. As an afterthought I would have preferred hearing a lead guitar in the middle of the song and would have left off or shortened the intro

Truly Harmonical

Intro-Interesting use of bass harmonics with unpredictable chords. Pulls the listener to be sure. Has a very classic rock-ballad feel with a hint of jazz. When the full band kicked in, I was unsure as to whether or not it worked with the intro, but after a while, I began to get into it and really began to like the vibe. The fact that it was live makes it more intimate. I think that recording it live was a good choice. There's nothing special about the vocal melody, but the vocal style is right for conveying the story.

Great idea

Like this song, real feeling and nice parts make up a great tribute song. I am not the biggest fan of listening to live stuff on record, it is always better to be there and take in the atmosphere. Very little live recordings, even proper big bands are a bit annoying after a while (The Who live at Leeds being a good example of how to do it properly). Nothing wrong with this tune though, hope everyone enjoys listening to it.

Water Torture Replaced.

I listened for a while in the vain hope that it could not get any worse. Silly me. I am not certain if this is supposed to be a song about Tracy and why they bothered. Although I can hardly understand a word he speaks, I cannot say that I am too bothered about it. Whether his sister sees Tracy is neither here nor there to me. I do not give a toss. This is an assemblage of rubbish. The pity is that that the singer has a good sounding blues voice and with a few months speech therapy and a good song might do well.


I really like and the song music well composed unique if you have any other music I like to hear more of your music I hope this been helpful for you God bless and stay creative.have a safe week

Didn't let on

Kept me at bay as to whether the delay was a presentation of confusion into the drama or someone who has not reached the musical command to Nirvana. The beginning actually tries ones patience as to whether one should proceed or change the station. Finely a pleasant surprise of professionalism.

tracy's blues

The intro was a little tedious but once we got to the main body of the song it was great . If this song started at the end of the intro I would give it 5 stars . Great music , band and structure . The band was right on the beat and the vocals perfect . I really loved the chord changes and as always , loved the bass . Keep up the great work and good luck with this , Cliff


Well, there is a certain amount of skill required to make beautiful music, and you certainly have it. For album purposes though, I would recommend using the beginning instrumental section as it's own track. I like the originality of the lyrics and you wisely stay within your range vocally. Thanks for telling your story beautifully.
