artist comments: Thanks Joe! We appreciate the time you spent listening and analyzing the track. We actually do have a third (high) harmony part on the second chorus, but it's pretty subtle in the mix. Very cool that you picked up on that. I really like the acoustic guitar suggestion in the choruses. We have it in the verses but again, it's pretty subtle. Glad you dug the B3 solo and keys in general. The organ just knocked me out in the studio. We look forward to running more material by you as time allows. Thanks again! For Parvin & Patterson Mark Patterson

artist comments: Joe, I appreciate that you took extra time in letting the song work with you and on you such that your critique gives good advice here and there while not simply glossing over. There have been times when some reviews simply love or attack, but yours shows intellect and leadership. Thanks, Ed

song: Girls Kissing
artist:Ric Seaberg

genre: Rock - General
stats: playlists: 0 | song plays: 64
artist comments: Thanks Joe. What drove me to this lyric? It was the two cowpokes in the Carl's jr ad where the two babes are bbqing and eating a burger, all touchy, and the cowpokes chins are on the floor and then they start taking photos! Go find it on YouTube! It's funny! It reminded me how the web is rife with girls kissing cuz guys (with few exceptions) love to see it! I mean that's the truth!
song: Searchin'
artist:Hank Thomas

genre: Country - Contemporary
stats: playlists: 55 | song plays: 985
artist comments: Joe, Thanks so much for such a positive review of "Searchin'". Been at the whole game for well, let's say, more than 35 years but the writing mostly in the last 10. No luck marketing anything so far, but I guess the right person hasn't heard the right song of mine at the right time--YET. Glad to hear a pro's opinion, and I'll re-visit that ending. Thanks again, Hank Thomas
song: Hard Times in America

song: Bite Me

genre: Rock - Indie/Low-Fi
stats: playlists: 7 | song plays: 819
artist comments: Joe is a truly good guy whose sincerity comes across easily in his reviews. He gave me excellent feedback and encouragement. My only critique/confession is that my partner in The Flavor Spanks, Lucius Stone, is the real credit for the song and vocal performance. No way Joe could have known that based on how I had my Broadjam page set up. Another Tweak I shall make Sir Joe! Thanks for a truly Pro Review!
song: Love Me Again (DEMO)

genre: Country - Traditional
stats: playlists: 0 | song plays: 69
artist comments: Thank you very much for the wonderful review. I love the various country styles of music, but from time to time would really like to hear more traditional country which is what I was after with this song. I will continue to work on it and will definitely consider everything you said as I do. Hopefully with a little work the lyrics with all be excellent and this song will work for a great singer. Thanks again, your review was really thorough and truly helpful. Be well, Dave
song: Destiny

genre: Blues - Rock
stats: playlists: 0 | song plays: 118
artist comments: Again thank you Joe for some useful insights. I think you're right about being a bit to long. When I do it live its a bit jammy but for a recording it does drag a little long. I like the suggestion of a fade. Also it could use some texture and color of some back up vocals. Its funny you say it reminds you of Boz Scaggs. I was a big fan (guess I'm still) of his music back in the day. Thank you again for your time and comments
song: Billy's Bomb

genre: Rock - Classic

artist comments: Thanks again for taking the time to do this review. Robert Carone played the drums on these tracks. He was out on the 'Barnstorming Tour' with Joe Walsh in the 70s when Upstaging was in the early years. He wanted me to say hello to you and thank you for doing the review.
