Hi MCS,

Another one of my songs derived from a book, this time from the series penned by James Oliver Rigney.

I've got a lot of great musicians to thank on this track:

John's on drums and he delivered a turbo charged drum part which propells this song nicely. Mike's laid down some great guitar tracks including a molten hot 'tapped' solo. Steve delivered another of his immaculate impassioned vocals with a great chorus hook at the coda. Jay knitted the sound together with his wizzard keyboard textures. Lastly (but not in the least!!) mix master Argle came up to deliver a super mix out of all that "wall of sound"!

I really enjoyed being part of this collab, thank you very much guys!!

Cheers
Andy

Personnel:

John Wooten : Drums
Mike Woodford : All Guitars
Steve MacAndrew : All vocals
Jay Schankman : Keyboards
Adam Kirby : Mix/Mastering
Andy Gupta : Lyrics/composition, bass


The lyrics:

The Wheel Of Time

Andy... thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this... many thanks for having me along...  this is a really catchy earworm (translated from the German Ohrwurm) and a great track to have in the car.... I can't add anything to the accolades except to praise you for your punchy power bass lines that, together with John's drums, drive this song along and give it a real headbanging feel...  you aren't called Robobass for nothing  8)  Fantastic!!!!

Mike,

Thank you so much - really appreciate it. It's a privilege to have you play on a track of mine - you took a rather simple arrangement to a whole new level with that fiery guitar work!!

Look forward to many more collabs together..lets jolt those earwigs..ohh i meant ear worms  ;D

Cheers
Andy

Cheers Andy,

I need to knock up the songs on to a disc for the car, I've just been so busy as to make me lazy :-[ :-[

Thanks for the chance to sing this....................if I remember properly, I sang the vox leads in the time between my wife Linda leaving and returning from the supermarket that is around 200 yards away!!

It was good to sing on a few songs guys that were easier in the sense that the lyrics and songs existed and all I had to do was sing them........I better get back to the earlier projects again.

Thanks buds, these last three have been a gas 8) 8) 8) 8)

hey Steve,

Many thanks for taking some time off from your hectic musical porjects schedule, and laying down super vocal tracks which really enhanced the song!

You did send ALL the vox takes in like an half hour span  :D - that was impressive!

Yes, we seem to be on a bit of a roll with the recent collabs (In2You/Wheel/Into the Light), regards finishing them quickly and with great results - long may that continue!!

Oh, I've burned a CD with a lot of the recent collabs and am driving my better half bats by playing the songs constantly  ;D!!

Cheers
Andy

Great song Andy, and guys.. it was a gas!  :)

You couldn't ask for a greater mix of talents on this style of music. Each of you guys forged your spirit into this high energy progressive tune that actually is as hooky as any pop song. Steve, you have a penchant for making this genre of music accessible to just about anyone.

Excellent  8)

Thanks Jay, and as always, it was a pleasure to have you on board, your arrangements/ambient sonics work is simply astounding!

I echo your sentiments regarding all the guys pooling their considerable talents to make this ditty hard rocking yet prog-like and catchy!!

Onto the next one then? ;)

Cool song guys! Reminds me a lot of Rush. Nice work!

Hey Roger,

Thank you - glad you liked the song!! The Rush feel was due to Mike and Steve I think:). I was just trying to be Giddy  :D

Cheers
Andy
