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


I like this song A lot. Nice storyline, chord changes, Melody and some instrumental hooks Within. I think the lead break is maybe a bit too long but more importantly the intro is certainly too long before the vocals start. As you are most likely aware of in the music industry A&R makes their decisions to pass or accept within 20 seconds I don't think the vocals start within that time frame. And they don't accept the song based on the intro unless it's something like Satisfaction or Honky Tonk Women by the Stones. For a life performance no problem. I think it's worth repeating that in the music industry music industry players never really listened to the entire song they base their past or accept within 20 seconds. I hope you find this helpful and wishing you the very best with the song

a review of Tracy's Blues

strange sounds that blend into a rising tempo of music with vocal intervention that makes you reaching out for more . A nice arraingement of music and vocals that blend together , the guitar does a great job mixing in and the slow beat of the bass leads you into the mistry of the piece. Vocal are strong, the end is a little strange but likeable and it was live so I would say a nice job and worth your time.


Wow- good recording for a live show! I imagine the bass being deeper and warmer listening live- it makes me wanna see you- mission accomplished :) As for the music- sweet overtones on that guitar! I personally love that sound and the synths gradually joining are spot on. Love the open harmony. It all shakes the familiar blues a little. And for some reason reminds me listening to Pink Floyd's less experimental stuff. OK, I'll stop now. You've got a new fan. If you'd like to cooperate sometimes I'm totally game! (New York City-based). Check out my music if you're in :)

oblivion and beyond

First off i wanna say that all these musicians know how to play and the songwriter did not start yesterday..the lyrics are really good contemporary and poetic and the singer has his own voice,..a little country but not quite..which is good..fairly original...the fact that this is a live recording gives this song a little more credit because it's hard to get a nice clean sound live..very well done..yeah i like the honesty of this band..i give them 4.5


Aye beat is dope asf and great mixing done on track , so shout out to whoever your engineer was and keep doing your thang keep grinding keep putting in that hard work and stay consistent Keep doing your thang keep grinding bro you definitely have potential and the talent is there continue to make that real music you doing and you gone make it fam that’s my opinion keep working

Love this song!!!

Wow! I love this. It's not just random notes to show speed and dexterity but melodically beautiful. Then when the band kicks in its full of feel and so tasteful. Lyrics are human. I'm extremely impressed with this track. Tight performance and mixed well for a live performance.

Cool Track

Of course it caught my ear when i heard Jaco tribute i had to listen the intro you totally nailed it over all the song was a nice listen and at times the sound reminds me a la hendrix but a very nice soft blues track with a touch of Progressive outthere-ness singing wasnt half bad id say this is a tight track and i would recommend !

Tracy's Blues

I understand why the song has a long period of bass playing at the beginning, but I think it is way too long before the actually singing comes in. Once the singing starts it is a very good song! Could the bass playing be changed to the middle? I just think the long intro will cause people to not give the song a chance.

Dreamy Blues

There's something intriguing about the intro to O.B.L.I.V.I.O.N's song, Tracy's Blues. It gives very little hint as to what style of music will follow, but instead creates a soft, whispering carpet of sounds that made me curious and want to hear what comes next. The ambient sounds eventually gave way to a beautiful blues ballad, which gently reminisced about times gone by, all the while, supported by harmonics, gentle guitars and a dreamy percussion. A very rich and soulful live tribute to Tracy.


How to start? Great intro and outro beautifully executed harmonics! very accomplished bass playing coming from a not too shabby bass player, all in all your tune is exactly as you describe well supported by very tight drums keys and guitar with just the right individual treatment on the vocals.... love it ..regards Paul


Yeah its a very relaxing peice (imo) and Im glad to say it made me relax a lot. I would recommend smoking weed before listening to this song; but not because its a great song but just because I love smoking weed.

It made me smile

Glad 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.


This 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 Jardin

One 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.
