Here is Ramblin’ Man or as close to it as we could come! This is uh, the Allman Brothers’ version…
Ha - April Fools - Rather it is the Gary Stewart version and is different than what you normally hear. We are pretty close I think on this cover, but not exact. You be the judge of that.
This one was a challenge to produce. I think all did pretty well. Thanks to Roman, the co-producer as I think he pulled off a near record like mix! - Let me know what you think of that too.
The video is not exactly what I wanted to do, but realize there is very little of Gary Stewart pics out there. The guitar play video segment, is by a mystery guitar player. I will buy suds for anyone who can guess the player’s name. Hint - He is from a very famous band, from back in the mid 70’s to maybe 90’s era…
Credits of who did what are in the video, at the end!
In reality, I felt sorry for Roman a bit and invited him in to co-produce this one. The mix was his baby. Roman lost Cagn to the band he is in. So no more Cagn & Roman collabs for probably at least a while. I though old Roman might go rusty on us and thus I prodded him into doing this one!
At the end he said thanks for the chance to mix this and that it was great fun for him! I am grateful he was “in” on the project as he is the one I look up to for mix help and checking for issue prior to a final posting on my mixes. I have to have help as my bionic ears are a real hurdle to pass over when it comes to mixing!
H LBro ,Pam , Adrian and Roman
Thank you for this great fun earworm this Sunday in the (coming) sun working in the garden, I really enjoyed your collaboration
And extra Hug to you LBro that you brought in such an old (long time back ) " acquaintance"…
Thank you Rene!
It just happens we share close to the same location in the area we live…
Thanks for the kudos on the recording and production. On the “mix” as I call it. That is pretty much the skill of Roman showing through in audible form. He might be the top mix guy and producer in the community that is not a pro! That is simply a humble assessment opinion of mine and nothing else.
Good to hear this classic is near and dear to you. You are welcome on the “beauty”!
You must tell me Roger, or Rogier. Which is it you prefer as I see you seem to go by both?
Oh my, you have “ear worms”? I am so sorry to hear that. Are they contagious? LOL/JK
All kidding aside. You are welcome on this one filling your ears with joy sir!
Ah, thanks for the hug. But it is easy to invite such a talented producer and mixer into the fold. In addition Roman is a good friend and worthy of such consideration. The proof of that is in what you hear! I think it’s a great mix IMHO. If you listen to the original by Gary Stewart, the mix is pretty decent in comparison. You can take that in here: Gary Stewart Version
Sadly to me is that Gary sure sings a lot better than I… LOL
No one wants free suds? I am still waiting to hear who the mystery guitar player in the video is. No one has ventured a guess so far. Surely a big clue is the dents in his guitar! LOL
I know that is not much to go by…
Bravo and three cheers for the band and production team!!
Thanks for sharing, LBro. The performances, mix and video all tip-top and up to the expected WWM standards.
Can’t judge how close you are to the Gary Stewart version. In fact, I’ve never even heard of Gary Stewart And your rendition was joyful, leaving me with no desire to listen to Gary’s.
Free ‘suds’ … I’m just not that into bubble bath to want free ‘suds’ In my neck of the woods suds would be alluding to soap suds. I’m guessing across the Atlantic and equator it is a reference to beer maybe?
Now I’m up for a free beer and was looking forward to the challenge, but a short of hands and an LP makes it quite a challenge. Now who do I know who may have played such a guitar back in that era in a famous band. Only two names come to mind. Firstly Gary Moore if this was done after he acquired ‘Greenie’, Peter Green’s famous LP that I recall looking like that. Secondly, maybe Jimmy Page, whom I think played LPs at some points in his career. And both Thin Lizzy and Led Zep would count as famous bands in that era.
I have clicked ‘Watching’ so will track replies with curiosity until you reveal the mystery player.
My hat is off to DavidP! He nails Jimmy Page on the first go. I supplied too many clues I guess! Yes you get free suds, grog or beer mate. I guess your not into bubble bath, so it must be the cold one eh? To collect, you simply need to come to the USA in my neck of the woods. I am sure you will hop a plane in the next week or so, no?
To be honest I had never heard of Gary Stewart either. I guess he is new to both of us! As said, not many pics online of him either. Many that were good had a virus underneath them. You have to be careful these day on the Net, to not catch a bug!
Thanks for the nice comments on the whole project! Much appreciated there!
All the best, but remember - With free suds you will be really clean!
Roger is the English version of Rogier, and I am called both here and also listen to both (in a bad way ) … Rog is a very bad bastard … but those are also 2 people here who always / firmly call me that. …good to read the rest,
and the video link doesn’t work
Have a fantastic sunday and the best too,
Greetings Rogier …or what ever
