Robert Goldbach is another guy over at 50/90 that I'll try to recruit here. He just finished this one today. Most of the songs at 50/90 are quickie recordings that may or may not get a full treatment after 50/90 ends in October... but this one's pretty good for a quickie recording. This was the first of two versions of this song.

Another Summer Come and Gone

Another summer come and gone
And less than thirty I recall
Just like the bridge in every song
As summer changes in to Fall...

I've come to learn the bitter truth
I'm not the boy I used to be
The days passed slowly in my youth
And now they're faded memories...

Summer days are just as long
But now I work 5 days a week
July and August - here and gone
And I just barely soaked my feet...

The last day of school, the shoes came off
And every summer, stubbed my toes
My money came from mowing lawns
And not a CENT was spent on clothes...

Now all my money goes for bills
I work to keep the things I own
The summer sunsets give me thrills
And come September, chill my bones...

Summer days are just as long
As summer days when I was young
Another singer sings his song
Another summer come and gone...

Very cool almost thought I was hearing a Berlin tune from the intro synth 80's vibe there.

Well written and enjoyable listen. For mix notes, I'm not sure if you compress the overall mix but a few thing like the lead vox and lead guitar don't seem to have that "glue" and sort of sit on top isolated if you know what I mean.  Not a huge fan of telephone eq on vox mainly due to being overused for ages ago but that's a personal taste thing and overall maybe fits the retro style here. Very nicely done!

John - very cool. 1980's Berlin as Eric says.

Eric - I don't think John did the mix, he is mostly a lyricist (or anyway has been the years I have worked with him), I think there were some musicians involved here not on this site.

One minor things.. the 12 seconds of very quiet talking and messing about at the start is a bit disconcerting, it made me reach for the volume and whack it up, to then have my head blown off when the music came in proper!


George can often be found playing electric stringy things, and singing...

haha - yes, you are correct George... my wife won't even let me mix cake batter. Roll Eyes
I went back and deleted those first 12 seconds, it was actually Robert repeating what I wrote in the liner notes and wasn't part of the lyrics.
