Stay (Medicine Show)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
another "Medicine Show" track i think.

.... a wobbly little tune with enough heart to see it thru I hope.

I am indebted to the band for taking this on. I am always amazed when musicians of the caliber these folks are agree to help me out. Neil, Terry, Vic and Andy are true professionals with track records to prove it. They are also supportive collaborators. Many thanks guys .... seriously .... Many Thanks.

Dedicated to my soul mate. ... you take way too much guff from me. Thanks for letting me "stay".

Vic Holman: Electric Guitars
Neil (jiguma): Bass Guitar
Andy(awigze): Sax
Terry(davisamerica2): Backing vocals and harmonica
Me: Vocals and stuff

Lyrics
can u see me now
can u see my face
like i see you now
in this time and place

i can see you now
i can see your face
my one true love
in this time and place

the road is long
the days are few
sunset's bold
still in your eyes
remain so true

on and on
if you take my hand
there's more to see
then we ever planned

stay with me
and i will stay with you
for just as long
as you want me to

i can see you now
i can see your face
my one true love
in this time and place

i say
"it don't matter"
you say
"yes it does does"
i say
"Why bother"
you say
"just because"
I say
"I am leaving"...
you say stay .... stay

this one is special
Everyone did so good on this... stepped out of the box. Bass nails it and the acoustic sets the tone. Harp was just right too and electric is tasteful. We all appreciate your friendship Jack, but equally appreciate Kim's super abilities to tolerate us.

Holy Cow!
I don't think I could hit the fav or download buttons enough to do this justice. I mean, with this line up, just doing Mary Had a Little Lamb would have been awesome, but this is such a powerful and beautiful song. I've been hitting play again and again.

Wow!

You guys have hit it out of the park with this one. Very nice. One of these day, hopefully I'll get to buy each one of you a beer for this one.

Jack, this is such a great song. When I first heard it I really couldn't believe my ears - such confident and emotional writing in a genre that I love. Performances from the band were inspired - I'm glad you thought I did it justice, and am very pleased to have been asked to contribute.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

well it's a good thing I came back for a second listen because my comment was gone and I see you pulled the post and uploaded another. I don't remember exactly what I said so I'll start again ... love the opened tuned guitar at the start and the way the harmonica comes in. I'm a sucker for a good background lead guitar FX ... and I really like the almost mimicking lead guitar and sax. The sax has a mexican sound to it ... like I'm riding through a desert ... vocals are inspired and heartfelt. Bass is solid and keeps it all together. This is a fine tune and worthy of a download ... thanks ... I'll be listening to this when I'm driving. Makes me feel melancholy but in a good way.
Cheers

gosh - love that intro guitar!
when the first note of the bass debuts, it adds so much.
love Andy's sax - it blends so beautifully.
Vic's guitar has a wonderfully laser sharp quality to it.
cool harmonica, Terry - sounds good! your ahhhhhs are perfect.
Jack - wonderful write. i love the "just because" line.
and your voice is so OUT there in all its fullness, all its emotional, all its Jackness. terrific teamwork - powerfully performed. bravo, boys! Anne

Ed Hannifin said 1878 days ago (June 6th, 2012)
It doesn't matter how good this song is.
It has backwards guitar on it. It's automatically cool. AND harmonica. Doubly cool.

But then, as it happens, it DOES, in fact, have a nice dollop of heart to it, and it's also a nicely solid song. Taken at just about the perfect tempo for the lyric and melody, I think...

I like the way you start and take it back to the simple acoustic guitar. Very effective.
davisamerica said 1876 days ago (June 8th, 2012)
we
obviously like the same things. terry was a bit unsure of his harmonica at first but it sold me immediately. vic always trips me out ... dunno for sure but the "backwards" guitar is possibly him using his "ebow" ... the guy is genius. neil was such a great driving force on this. i cannot express how much i respect his talent and advice. he had the dickens of a time getting the bass sorted thru due to me never using a "click track"... but his bass line and terry's 5 voice choir really hold this together. andy is my bud. he never misses the mark. very nice to see you have stopped by ed and really appreciate the very kind comments... we all do. thank you sir!

like a performance on stage and people watching. Enjoy the harmonica and it's folk setting. Then a terrific haunting chorus and marching drums and keeps getting deeper and deeper which I think sounds very pro! Almost a feeling of the Highwaymen of Macjams :) A very cool collar !
