Hi Pam.

Just shows what can be done with a little work on the final "Mix".

Vast improvement, and You even have the Mike Samms singers in the background now !!.

Like I said, this is what you do best,.......very entertaining performance.

Kind Regards
Gordon

Hi Pam!

Ask a hundred people, ... get a hundred views! You know how that goes. Personally, I like it just fine the way it is now. I wouldn't change a thing as far as volumes go. However, I WOULD change the key once or twice through the song. The original modulates up a time or two. I think that is because it tends to be a repititious melody. Fortunately, a good one though.

All things considered, I have always liked this song, and Roger Miller, and I think you have done an excellent job with it. Keep up the good work young lady!

Thank you so much for listening and your nice comments to Leo, Gordon, Julio and Krazy, and have taken on your recommendations, and I think that was Julio's comments before I rebalanced it...Pam

Hi Pam

A great toe tapping version of this old favourite. Like Leo, I loved the walking bass on piano. A round of applause to Eileen for the style.

Kind regards
Andy

Hello Pam
This is a new one on me, nice boogie number with the trumpet and bass giving it a "trad" taste. Nice one!
All the best
Ewan
