Chicago is a cool song. Draws you right in with contrast between beat and soft opening voices.

Haha! Just saw another of your review's with reference to "mats" influence .. wasn't really familiar with them but checked them out and I can totally see it. Ironically the guy in our band that sings the song is named matt.

Thanks for the review on Tripped, Stumbled and Fell. You hit it on the head it is an 80's recording. I actually have three different versions of the song. I was listening to a lot of 30's big band music at the ti9me and I think that influenced the melody of the song.

Hey Weathermakers, glad you got a kick out of the Preacher's Wife Blues. I am the Preacher's wife and the song is true, from start to finish. I am a country preacher's wife and he still hates okra. Have a great day and I hope I get to hear one of your songs soon. Mrs. Kate www.MrsKate.com www.broadjam.com/mrskate

Dear Weathermakers,

I am so glad you enjoyed my song, "The Beetles Are Coming", from my first album, "Time Loop". It IS directly from the 60's-70's period. The song was inspired by what I saw as the demise and underbelly of the 60's-70's Hippie Movement....once it was commercialized. The last verse says a lot about this. Actually, if you ponder the lyrics, you'll get a lot out of them. I was the guy in the last verse dropping my "life" from the Golden Gate Bridge. I knew the "underbelly" was upon the movement when I was driving over the Golden Gate Bridge and a large, black BMW with plates that read "GREED" went wizzing by driving by a well-groomed hippie type.

This song, in particular, when played with a band, is an epic, hair-raising tune. One of the great things about writing then was that we were not constrained to the radio-driven formats that so many people think they need to adhere to today. On the album, "Time Loop" (the title track and the tune "Electra") numerous songs got a lot of radio play, especially, "Electra" which was in the Top Ten on KLAX in LA for some time. Also, FM radio, at the time, was very "experimental", so songs like, "The Beetles Are Coming", "The Ballad OF Diamond Joe", "Water Sand Castles", "Waving Prairie" and others got a lot of play even though they are beyond the 3:30 radio "friendly" format. A word to the wise, surely write tunes that ARE "radio friendly"....but do NOT let it dictate ALL your writing. My newest CD, "Walking In Circles" has several tunes that are 6-7 minutes long and the CD is getting tremendous airplay in Europe. Oddly enough, my third album, "Taxi To Tonganoxie", is filled with songs just OVER 2 minutes long. Go Figure.

Thanks, too, for the compliment about the guitar playing. I think you will like all the songs on my albums, "Time Loop" and "Waving Prairie". In the studio, Stephen Barncard and myself did a lot of mic experimentations to be used when recording an acoustic guitar, secrets that I still work and hold fast today. The guitar I used (and still use today) to record my earlier work is a Custom-made Gibson Heritage made in 1967. It is the best sounding acoustic recording guitar I've heard. I was once offered $10,000 by a popular 60-70's artist to buy it. The other guitar I use to record is a Custom-made Taylor 810 CE with Brazilian Rosewood. Fabulous performance guitar.

Anyway, go to my site and check out tunes like, "Lumbering Mountain", "Lonely Woman", "Snow Line", "Waving Prairie", "Kites In the Country"....you'll like the guitar work on these, too.

God Bless,

Chet Nichols

Thanks for reviewing Mooly Cow Lullaby. Thanks for your comments--yes, you are hearing Mooly Cow. This is a lullaby that was written by my wife's grandfather back around 1930-1940. It has been sung to the babies in our family--now the 4th generation. I simply had it produced so that the generations to come will be assured of its legacy. Thanks Again!

Ahhh, my buddies, "The Weathermakers"....thanks for the nice review of my instrumental version of, "Hollywood, Hollywood" Ver. 1. You can hear the track with the vocals and lyrics at my site. I think you will love the lyrics. Look for Ver.1 if you like this track. Version 2 is a bit spacier....

Keep on plucking,

Thanks for the great review of "all you've got", The song was an experiment to write and record and post on broadjam as fast as possible! The original title was 33mtf (33 minutes to finish) and it is as you have described, intentionally haunting and minimalist. Thanks again----J E

Mmmm, tasty tunes. Love the vulnerable vocal style, and the quirky style. Still tight and pumping in the right places, too.

Hey there, again!

So, you listened to and like my tune, "Horses and Eagles". Great fun and a great tune. My first record was going to be titled, "Horses & Eagles", but the record company wanted a more "commercial" tune, so I recorded my tune, "(Spinning On The) Time Loop"....and the record was renamed, "Time Loop".

You are "dead on"....Dylan meets The Grateful Dead.

Oh yeah, go back into your profile and enable the "connect to me" option, so people can add you to their "favorite artists".....let me know when you do, I wanna be the first to "connect" to you.

Best,
Chet Nichols

Yeah, I have over 2,000 I have written.....still loading them on to the site. Yeah, I love "The Ballad Of Diamond Joe", too.

It's a great song for a band to do live ... and jam to. Lots of dynamics to it.

The song comes from my first album, "Time Loop", recorded in SF at Wally Heider's Studios. I played all the instruments and had my buddy and engineer, Stephen Barncard.....producing and engineering the record. It is so much fun to see and hear people still discovering my music...

Thanks again!

Hi There,

Thanks for the review of my tune, "Kites In The County". The version you listened to is a very raw cut from my CD, "Black & White". It was lifted from a live TV show I did in Kansas City in 1970. So, because of the TV mixing board, the recording has a bit to be desired, but my die-hard fans wanted it.

You mentioned wanting to hear a "studio" version of the tune. Well, you are in luck! There is a studio version that comes from my CD, "Waving Prairie". I think you will REALLY like the studio version. It was recorded at Wally Heider Studios in SF back in 1972 and includes tabla Master, Zakir Hussain backing me up on the track.

The amazing thing about this particular cut is that we never rehearsed the tune. I played a few bars and said, "Follow me".....which he did with a master's touch. One take-and we left it that way. Check it and other tunes out at my Broadjam site.

Thanks again for the review....and WELCOME to Broadjam!

Best,

Chet Nichols

Greetings. Thanks for the review of Coming Apart At The Seams. I agree that it is not my best effort at lyric writing. :) I guess they can't all be perfect though, or I wouldn't have anywhere to go. I appreciate the Killers comparison. I really like that band. That recording was actually made fifteen years ago, so I guess they sort of sound more like me than I do them. I like "The Weathermakers". I'll give you a listen. See if you can find my friends, "The Overcasters". Cheers.
