    The Saints, the curse, the hurricane, the Superdome, I'm tackling it

    Sign in to disable this ad
    This is not a stupid football song like the 'Superbowl Shuffle' or anything. It's a kind of spooky, bluesy/jazzy tune about the alleged curse of the New Orleans Saints. As you may or may not know, the Superdome sits on what was once Girod Street Cemetary. How's that for bad karma.

    Anyway, I played an accoustic version of this for my band and they wanted to start playing it right away so I recorded an electric version by myself so that they could hear it. Because of the time sensitive nature I fast tracked it so, there are imperfections that I'm aware of but feel free to critique the mix as well as comment on the song itself.

    first song on this page

    RAY J,
    The voodoo you do is cool. I love the accordian touches.
    The thing I most love is the guitar tone - sounds like a guitar. Oh, how I've missed that lately.
    The accordian solo is mostly ace too.
    My only concern is the name - I'd be afraid folk would think it the Trad Jazz tune & not take note for that reason.
    Good narrative behind the melody & playing too.
    I assume this is all you. Will you be doing a band recording? The differences would be interesting.
    yet again I have to say this forum is allowing some absolute cream to rise. Enjoy floating.

    VERY GOOD, RAY!

    first 2 songs "kicks..."
    Well balanced mix
    Clean recording,guitar sound, clean drums, good vocal ...
    Crystal Clear and others seems more "on stage", not "on face" as "Amytrip.. and "Saint marching"...)

    Hey thanks fellas

    Greg L- It's a little easier to write on something you know about, ie being a long-suffering Saints fan. LOL

    Gidge- good to hear from you. Been a long time since I"ve posted anything. What else could a song about the Saints be other than blues? In that respect the tune practically "wrote itself" as they say.

    Ciro- There's a big gap between the time i recorded 'the other 4 songs' and Amitriptyline Swing, and then another long time period between Amitr and this tune that probably can account for the differences in the recordings. Drums are usually my achillies heel, glad I've made some headway. I only have 8 tracks to work with so I had to jam the drums onto 3 tracks on this tune. I could have easily used 6 for them. I use a drum machine but I don't program it. I play it manually, in real time. i've been scorned, laughed at, as well as commended on that in the past.

    I need some ears on this one one more time. I remixed and remixed until I don't know what I"m hearing anymore. Are the vocals too loud now?

    you need to send this to the saints before the season starts. i know its just pre-season, but they got trounced by the cowgirls last night.
