Also... a lack of computers involved in the recording. Maybe that is related!

I wonder if the world will ever again experience something as simple yet fun as the spirit of 60’s-70’s rock and roll. But I suppose every generation feels as strongly about their own music.

Enjoying it immensely.  8)

Sorry to hear the payout is so slow. otoh, way to go getting to the 100 mark! It's cool that you set these goals and exceed them, plays no small part in your success, I think.

6 months -  time for another update !

My July royalty payout from PRS was a very poor £87 which I gotta admit bummed me out a little. Although there were 25 tracks that paid something out there are still a bunch of international royalties missing , and I've had to raise online queries with my PRO in an attempt to get them sorted.  Because of Covid response times to these emails are about 3 months so it is taking forever to get to the bottom of it.  My case has been sent over to the International Dept now but I can't see it being sorted out by Octobers payout. Some of these TV placements are 3 years old now and I still haven't been paid properly.  i.e. getting £3 instead of £100 - 200

On the plus side this year has been the best yet in terms of TV placements.  So far it's 54 for the year ( I was hoping for one each week so I've exceeded my goal )  with the majority of them being on German TV shows.  I've had one track played repeatedly on the Bundesliga ( soccer ) coverage on the main channel in Germany so I'm hopeful of some decent royalties when they start coming through.

My all time total placements has now exceeded 100 and I'm hoping to complete at least 100 new tracks this year for the libraries I am working with.

The next royalty distribution is in about a month so I will drop by once I know the figures and share.

I just relistened.

Andy's bass line in the breakdown section starting at 2'28 before the instrumental is just top class, especially the whacky prhasing at 2'58 which Bill countered on guitar.

Bill's guitar tone and touch is also superb.

The new mix really brings it all to life. Well done Steffan.

I am really proud of this now, but at the time I though it was just so-so.
