Description
Jerry emailed me a few weeks ago to let me know he had a few new songs and asked if I would be interested in working with him on them. I always love Jerry’s songs and was anxious to hear what he had. So one day after work I drove down to his house. When I entered his studio he played bits from each of his new tunes. There was something about this melody and the way the lyrics jumped off his handwritten page. I really wanted to work on Long Gone.

We spent that day putting together a quick acoustic demo with just my guitar and his vocal. The next day I recorded some proper acoustic guitar tracks. We weren’t sure what to do with the solo section. I picked up my Little Martin travel guitar and a slide. The sound seemed to fit. I thought at that point we might be done and we could just post it as a sparse acoustic piece.

But then the very next day Mike emailed me. He said he had a few free hours and wondered if I had anything for him to play on. Did I? I dropped him the file and within a day he delivered amazing drum and percussion tracks. Now the song was heading in a decidedly band direction. I asked Ryan to contribute a bass track. As always, he was rock solid and in the pocket. Should we leave it at that?

I sent a rough mix to Karen (magnatone) who thought keys and electric guitar could fill out the arrangement nicely. I asked John to contribute organ and accordion. Both of his tracks were outstanding. But the accordion just fit the bill so perfectly. I also asked Stan to contribute his signature electric guitar sound and a few harmonica solos. I believe this is Stan’s first MJ collaboration. If so, welcome my friend and thanks for contributing such wonderful tracks. Meanwhile Jerry reached out to his friend David who contributed a tasty electric guitar track. Maybe we can convince David to open an MJ account and really join in the fun!

Thanks to everybody who contributed on this song. Most of all thank you Jerry for writing such a great song and letting me work on it with you.

Lyrics
Long Gone
Words & Music by Jerry Quinn

Verse 1
Well I woke up this morning wishing I was dead,
Hoping that my baby could forget what I said,
Last night, last night,
I spoke my mind but I wasn’t too smart
I said some things and I broke her heart,
Last night, last night

Chorus
Now the woman is long gone,
Well the woman is long gone,
Yeah the woman is long gone,
And it serves me right

Verse 2
Well I can feel the fear building up inside,
I gotta jump back down to earth and try to find her
I’m checking all the places that I know she goes,
I’m asking all the people that I know she knows about her,

Chorus
They said your woman is long gone,
Yeah your woman is long gone,
She’s long gone,
And it serves you right,

Bridge
I wonder what she’s gonna do,
After all I put her through,
How I’m gonna make it through,
This lonely night,
I told her that I was her man,
Would always do the best I can
Now she’s making other plans,
This lonely night,

congrats on this andrew et al!! and thank you andrew for letting me hear a couple of the earlier iterations - i instantly loved this song, and as i recall telling you, i'd be going about my day and find that i was humming it CONSTANTLY. i'm not where i can listen to this final version, but will as soon as i'm able. what i know already, from the earlier versions, is that it's fabulous, and that YOU are so good at not only the music, but bringing people together and blending skills for a wonderful result. i'll comment again after i can actually HEAR this version!

Fantastic
I just had to read the description and I knew I would hit the download button! With that band it couldn't be anything but great. The listening confirmed it. The feel reminds of something from The Notting Hillbillies or The Travellin' Wilburys. Every instrument just in the right place, all adding variety and interest. Of course, beautifully recorded and mixed. Professional quality! Congratulations to all involved - I love it!

Such a nicely written tune, great lyric and melody. Musically, this sounds like a group of nashville pros...quality at all positions, and the musicianship really shines through. Andrew, this might be my favorite mix from you, plenty of depth, width and clarity. The panning of the guitars left to right works well. Just pro all the way around!

Love this song - this has an old school charm that's hard to find in music these days. Great performances by every single one of you. Well rounded line up and I love the accordion, and harmonica. I've been dong so much rock lately that my ears welcomed this smooth and easygoing diversion - I thank you all for a most enjoyable 4 1/2 minutes!

Must admit when I saw the lineup and genre I was really thinking has he finally overdone it?!! I love folk music and "too much" can wreck it, in my opinion. You got the balance spot on here Andrew and I should have just had faith. This is genuinely superb a really excellent listen, really well done to all.
alackbass said 2281 days ago (July 23rd, 2011)
Thanks Neil
I may not have had the genre right when we posted. But there are limited choices and a song like this contains elements of many. I was never worried about going too far since I knew everybody involved would place a priority on preserving the integrity of Jerry's song. Thanks again for stopping by to listen and comment.

I'm glad you brought that up. Neither Stan nor David was aware of the other's contribution. They both played to an early mix of acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. Then when I got their parts the very cool call and response series of guitar licks starting at :50 emerged. It was as if they were having a conversation and were considerate enough to leave space for each other. But in reality it was just one of those happy coincidences that can happen when doing an online collaboration.

Thanks for stopping by to listen. We all appreciate it!

When Andrew first sent me the early mix of acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and vocals I thought " wow, this is really clear and well done. I thought it sounded good as is. But after hearing all the pieces of the puzzle put together I have a great respect for Andrews ability to direct and produce. The mix is understated, and is a breath of fresh air. I am honored to have been asked to play on this very well written song and thank you for my first collaboration experience.

This is really nice. Tastefully done and the arrangement is spot on. Everyone is gelling well on this. You all sound like studio pros.
Good clean and clear mix. Bass is a little boomy in parts but a very minor critique. Really like the accordion. Has a cool James Taylor feel.

Country?
Wonderful collab. Great mix and mastering. All comes through cleanly. How do you do to put so many parts in a mix?
The vox is crooning so relaxed. All performances are excellent btw. It sounds really like a band. The icing was the bridge with the slide and the harmonica flying so nicely together.
Tops.

Thanks Billy
The mixing is easy when all the guys involved contribute such wonderful parts. I'm also rather partial to that slide/harmonica instrumental section! Thanks again for taking the time to listen!

Smooth!
This is a very nice mellow country rock track, shades of Glen Campbell and JJ Cale in there. Lovely instrumentation, I like all the subtle guitar work a lot. Well produced too.
nice one

Quality all the way...
Sorry for being a bit late to have a listen. Well Gang, what can I say? A quality song with professional performances sums it up for me. The accordion was a very nice touch and the rest of the "band" used the available space nicely to provide some very classy backing. Another MJ collab success. Take care all, Peter.

Joining MJ has afforded me the opportunity to work with some really fine songwriters like yourself. Jerry really brought the goods on this one. And what a great group of guys to work with. Thanks for the listen and kind comments.

This sounds great...
Right in the pocket. A simple song, simple elements, but ends up sounding really solid and complete. Everything's tasteful and right. It's well written and I really like that lead vocal....

Tell me that John is really playing a real accordion....

If you every have the pleasure to meet Jerry you'd learn quickly his songs are a reflection of his personality. There is nothing pretentious about the man! I'm so glad that shinned through. Thanks for stopping by.

Sweet, sweet, bittersweet.
Great tune, and all of you fit so well in this arrangement -- excellent production on top of just-right performances. So fine to hear human-powered acoustic instruments. Puts me at a table in a semi-intimate theater (like the theater at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music -- check it out!). Beautiful. Andrew, that little Martin solo is sweet. The mix reminds me of like some of mid-to-latter-day Prine, such as the album "The Missing Years" and specifically the song (but not the vocal style), "Count of Monte Cristo."

Wow! Thanks Bob!
First of all, long time no see! So good to see you back at MJ! I hope that means you'll be posting new music sometime soon. Prior to starting work on this one I had been listening to a lot of John Prine on Pandora. When Jerry first played it to me I told him it struck me as kind of a Prine tune and I thought we should treat at that way. So of course reading your kind comments was very, very gratifying! Thanks you again sir!

Great vocals and acoustic guitar work. Then when the drums, bass and accordion kick in it just boosts things up that extra level. Love this track.

I heard this when it hit MJ on my smart-allecky phone/macjam app doo-dad. I was hand watering my front yard which made the task rather enjoyable. Alas could not comment then, but wanted you guys to know that was thinking at the time is that this is as good as it gets and think you guys hit a real sweet spot. accordion /harmonica/vocals/percusion all spot on. Bass is just right! harmonies and those subtle slide licks makes this tune.

Flow
Very nice song. I like the laidback flow, and the arrangement, which brings so many elements together in a very cohesive manner.

On my monitors the bass sounds very boomy. All mid, no low. Could just be my setup.

We appreciate the listen and all the thoughtful feedback.

I find mixing bass to be the toughest of all mixing tasks. And I'm sure I have neither the right tools or listening space to get it right. If it sounds right through one set of speakers in one room, take it to another and it's too thin or too booming. Maybe someday................
