My Review - Tracy's Blues - The Third International by: BoomerI will start off with the bad news first, It is a Very Good Song. Okay, and now the good news.Great songwriting! The music, the melodies, the arrangements and the flow of the song from beginning to the end is well written at a professional level indeed. Great Job guys. The intro is quite enjoyable. got me into it right away. Kind of like YES or Pink Floyd feel to it. The Lyrics are clever. I really like the tone of the lead vocals too. Good stuff guys. Keep it up. Make More!!! Break a Leg! Cheers... Boomer
It made me smileGlad to hear such a nice piece; made me relaxed while feeling a lot. The voice is very well placed and the guitar melodies really enjoyable. I will love to hear more of the Third International.
NiceThis was a great track to listen to while sitting here at work. I don't have much background with this band, so I didn't know what to expect... but I was intrigued by the description, and gave it a go. The vocals were on point and passionate... and the band sounded tight. The overall vibe of the piece was great. Nice and potent, it felt good, and that is exactly what one looks for in a track, right? Good job!
Club Le JardinOne of the great memories of my six year residence in Miami was meeting (and drinking with) the great Jaco Pastorius at the Club Le Jardin. He was the most technically gifted musician I had ever known and no bassist was stronger where it counted. He would have loved this tune. Wonderful lush bass chords to open and close the piece and a dynamic homage to Jaco in the middle. Very well done.
Tracy's BluesFor a live recording, the quality is top notch. Love the intro and the bass, for a blues track, it's a pleasant surprise. The song reminds me somewhat of Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmour, when the guitar kicks in, kind of like Shine on You Crazy Diamond. Still it's more unique than that. As I listen to the lyrics, it's very evocative, 'No-one knew the end was near..' I relate to this having just lost my sister earlier this year, without warning. Beautiful guys, Love your name as well, God bless always Christine
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.
yeah!!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!
AntonA 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
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!
GorgeousThe 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 LiveTracy'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 cleanInteresting 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 HarmonicalIntro-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 ideaLike 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.
