Hi Greg,

I really enjoyed your three new tracks. Very well produced and your vocalist has an individual sound of her own, great clear voice. Good luck with them all.

Bob, "Her Majesty" so beautiful, loved it... so many Americans admired her as well. My Grandfather, great grands and great great grands... all born in London so I guess I could consider myself an Anglophile and I still have family there...
I think the lose of her love and support and the way they world is going to hell in a handbag was to much for her... Phillip was only gone a little over a year ago... I have been married 57 years and can't imagine my life with out my support and love.
Truly a great tribute to her with your song.
Always your friend in music 🎶 🎶Delta

Thank you Delta, glad you enjoyed the music.
Yes, the Queen will greatly missed. Most of us have known no other Monarch and have always looked to her as an example. It is like the death of our collective Grandmother! I do think Charles III will do well in the role, he is generally well respected. I've met and chatted with him back in my army days when he was Colonel In Chief of my regiment, he was impressive then.
Thank you again my good friend.

Hi mPHATic,

You may get this twice as I was certain I had already commented?!!
Just a thank you for the endorsement and the stars for The Drawing Room - The Song. Cyndi was the driving force behind The Song, I had plans or no intentions of even looking for a vocal. Not only did she write it, she sang it beautifully.
Good luck with your projects,

Bob (and Cyndi)

We're not even going outside in the heat today in Phoenix. We got out Moderna booster shots yesterday. They packed a sting...they must have added red peppers. Your producer must have had fun dicing and splicing. That song could be a sequel to "Islands in the Stream." Lol!

Is that the "new" one? Booster #3? We're getting our # 3 next month...

Indeed it is. Moderna has a stronger dose, more bang for your buck. It is properly labeled, too. I think the new and old Pfizers have the same label. Why? Don't know. If you're four months away, you're eligible. This is the last free one that will be offered, so go get it. When we walked into Target, most people by far were unmasked. We walked through a sea of unmasked idiots to keep ourselves safe with the vaccine. Even the people getting the vaccine weren't wearing masks.

Screw'em, you wanna mask, MASK!
And we've had all 4 so far from moderna, and will stick with it, so far so good!

I agree with Warren John but it's different if people become intimidating I guess. Mask wearing should never be political, should be an individual choice. Up to others if they do the same or choose not to. Good luck.

Hi Bob, "The Drawing Room, song" is extremely captivating!
Jogs the imagination!
Beautiful vocals and harmony.
A timely and delicate, intervention of clarinet and piano.
It should have been selected, but who knows what they are "really" looking for!
I reckon it is a perfect work of Art!
I find it no comfort when my songs are considered but none are selected!
It is like rubbing salt in!
Def worth 6 stars young man!
Really, really great!

Thank you so much for those kind words Jim. I am very grateful to Cyndi Corkran for coming up with the idea and then writing and singing the song. It is always good for the ego when a song is considered but getting something selected is incredible elusive!!
I'm glad you enjoyed this very pleasurable collaboration.
Cheers,

75 year old "Young" Bob!!

Bob, 75 and playing guitar with vibrance with virtuosity. I was just listening to "Glendalough" again, a lovely piece. I was curious about the place and looked it up...round tower, two lakes, a boardwalk, a few chapels, the Miner's Road. Was that on one of your travels? John

I was brought up in Dublin until I was 15. It was a treat to go to, Glendalough for a day out. A very atmospheric place.

Bob, on "The Drawing Room," Cyndi writes very rich, elegant, and descriptive lyrics. Her vocals with the wispy echoes are just right for the mood of the song. It's lovely and very well done. What a pleasant surprise! John

"That's Love" and "That Girl's No Good" are definitely Beatles influenced. Were these recordings from earlier days when you were in a group from long ago? I don't think I've heard those before. Did you write or co-write those? John

Hi John,
both songs are from 1964 when I had my brush with fame. A pro music pal was asking about it so I pointed him at a blog I wrote some time ago. In order for it to make sense i needed to put in links to the songs,
BJ was an obvious host. Here is the blog link, you might enjoy it! https://www.blogger.com/blog/post/e dit/8023734289786906445/15295868640 07305859

Hi,
I just had a few moments to spare and thought it might be nice to find out more about the Dustbunnies, especially as you had downloaded one of my songs. I am now trying to pull myself together after being very moved by Lament For The Rouse Simmons - just beautiful. It's not a song or a story I know and I just wish there was more info on your page about those involved in recording and producing the song. Everything is top notch but I was particularly taken by the vocalist who managed to portray the story in such a beautifully sensitive way. Thank you.
Bob

Hey, Bob. Thanks for the shout out and all. The song was written by a musical partner of mine, Lisa Johnson. The reason for the recording in the first place was to record her song. She played guitar and I performed on the hammered dulcimer. Madison, WI has a great band of regional and local musicians who are busy, but still manage to help each other out. Once I produced that song, and by the time I had the rest of the CD done, she had already recorded half of her own songs for her own recording. We are both, by now, just getting ready to release our second separate recording. We laugh: eventually we'll get around to doing a recording under our duo, "Leafy Greens."

Hi John,
Thanks for the stars for We Can Be Lovers Again - why do I have such long titles?!! - I'm very grateful. Julia is an excellent singer and it was a real treat when she agreed to sing this with me. I also provided backings for several of her songs over recent years and we worked very well together.
I'm on the mend now, just have to stop coughing long enough to play guitar!!

Hi, Bob. I went to your website (https://www.bobbentleymusic.com/) and your Facebook page and was intrigued by your musical history and noticed that song. Working with Julia certainly had to be an honor as well as a thrill, much as I was surprised and thrilled to have Jeana Potthoff play on "Sunny Sunday." I have three of your tunes in my collection which I often play. I still find myself wondering how i was honored enough to be in a group of who I consider to be the greatest songwriters on BJ, as well as the friendliest. I still have hopes that our group will put together a small set of songs. We have a lot going on in the meantime. I'm still going through a lot of discomfort with the extracted tooth and that keeps me from doing things. You have more songs I would like to listen to. The melody is a very big part of a song to me and you really know how to come up with very moving and unique melodies. John

You flatter as always John!
I think it will never be easy to come up with a group song when we have all written and/or composed our own complete songs in our own projects. It will be chance whether one of us presents either a lyric or a melody to the group in hope of advice or inspiration. It'll come or it won't, but it's great being able to help each other out from time to time.

You got me again Frank! Thanks for another great review, this time for Empire. It's comforting that you picked up exactly the vibe I was attempting to create, it's nice when a plan works out!

Hello Bob. I just finished finishing my MAMAs ballot and really like "Drawing Room" very much. I am sorry for "tagging" on to this thread, but I didn't/couldn't find the correct spot to start a new thread. I also am interested in downloading a version of "Drawing Room" when it is available.

Hi,

There is a lot that's not instinctive about this site now, starting a conversation is one of those things! I'm pleased to see that you have downloaded the song now, so I assume that all is well?
I'm very grateful and very glad you like The Drawing Room, it was quite a departure for me.

Kind regards,

Bob

Hi Frank, You've been busy again! Thanks for a great review of Rockin' on A Saturday Night. It's another of my older songs and I agree 100% with your (very) constructive comments about the mix. Back then I was often criticised for not bringing the harmonies forward enough in the mix, something I have tried to address in more recent stuff.
I'm very grateful for your support.

Hi again Bob,
I'm glad the system dialed up another one of your songs to review! You have great stuff and I really enjoy listening to it.

I hear ya on old songs/mixes. I have several old ones out there that I probably shouldn't, but I like the song enough to want to share it. But I kind of fear the day that they get dialed up for a review!! LOL

I guess the good thing is that we all know what to expect from a review of our older "I wish I knew what I didn't know then" mixes.

Be well,
Frank

Hi William, Thanks for a supportive and constructive review of Between The Earth and The Stars. The song was written by Cat Lamond, my former publisher, and I was invited to write the music. It was given to the winner of the Voice of Namibia, Claudia Nelson, a couple of years ago. Cat had it produced professionally but I agree entirely that it lacks dynamics and sounds very similar throughout. Although released, I won't be using it as a down payment on my villa with a pool!!
Thanks again,
Bob
