Hope everyone is well and having a nice Holiday Season.
Yes, another cover song. My time is very scarce when it comes to recording and whatnot. The covers are quick and I get it out of my system. I have four more classes to get my MBA, and hopefully after that I will have more time for originals. The kids are 2 and 3 so time will still be a commodity. Anyway cheers, and I wish everyone a great 2006.
Rob, You definitely aren't afraid to try the toughest ones, past or present, out there. I went to see Hall & Oates with my wife around '85 in Witchita Kansas. They had T-Bone (the bass player from SNL) and that Dr. band leader (guitar player from SNL). Hall & Oates put on a great show.
I really like the harmony parts, and your main vocals when you kept the range. Since Daryl Hall had such outstanding range I don't think too many could pull this off. I wouldn't ever attempt something like this or even come close so I give you an 'A' for effort.
Clear and uncluttered, which is nice. The vocals stand out very well. I agree with Stan that it gets a bit thin when you get out of your natural range, but overall it's pretty good (better than I could do, but that's not saying much). The harmonies might benefit from a bit more reverb and slightly better integration into the mix, but it's certainly a big 'E' for effort. The backing has a demo feel to it, which might be odd for a cover version. Still, squeeze out more recordings - you're on the right track overall.
