Hi John, thanks for the time you took writing the review of my song best friend. You are right in your critique I have never studied music let alone song structure. Do you have any good literature references you can suggest on composition theory and or song structure? I am just having a listen to some of your tunes now. Nice mellow tunes and clear engineering. All the best Pewana

Hi John,
thanks for the review of my track "promise (instrumental)". I've seen you have won the song of the year contest. I've been finalist on it too with my song "Icy eyes". Best regards. Osea

Hi John,

Thanks for the kind review of my song, "The Offing" from my 1972 album, "Time Loop".
It has been acknowledged as an album that helped to define the Folk Acid Rock genre.

I recorded the album on 16-track 2" tape at Wally Heider's Studio in SF....which was the mecca of all the top artists at the time.

"Time Loop" was the very first album in the US to use the Dolby Sound Reduction system.

It was a real cutting edge record where we purposely did not use any drums on...because we wanted the freedom to create and move rhythms based on the acoustic guitar as the guide for the rhythms.

Check out the album at my Broadjam site....pop on some earphones to hear the whole process....which was the way we listened to records on the 70's.

Best of luck with your music. When I get a chance, I will stop by and enjoy your music.

Please stay in touch!
