Description
Back in May when Jerry and I recorded his tune "I Don't Want to Hear" he told me he once wrote a country song. I got back out the field recorder to capture his vocal. He told me to unpack my guitar to accompany him. He couldn't remember all the verses. So we captured what we could. Given his health at the time I assumed we would never have the chance to do a proper production of the song. But then, quite out of the blue, Jerry emailed me the following week wanting to record more. Great! If he was up to it I sure was. A few days later I packed up my laptop and USB mic and took another ride south to see him at the hospice.

Luckily Jerry had an mp3 of an old analog recording he had done of this song years earlier. We transcribed out his lyrics, I did a quick scratch guitar to a click track, and then we were ready for Jerry to track lead and background vocals. The next step was to organize a band. Anybody who's hung around here knows you don't have to look hard to find amazing musicians to play with. I've done several tracks with John, Scott, and Stan. They always come through with incredible tracks. This one also created the opportunity to make it a family affair. Once again my son, Ryan, held down the bass while his grandfather (and my father), George contributed steel guitar.

Thank you Jerry for letting me work with you on this wonderful song. Thank you John, Scott, Stan, Ryan, and Dad. Music is so much better when played by a great band of good friends!

Lyrics
There'll Be No Loving"
words & music by Jerry Quinn


You knew exactly what to do,
How sad I'd be here without you,
There'd be no time for long goodbyes,
There'd be no need for telling lies,
I'm wondering what did I do wrong,
Seems I've loved you for so long,
There'll be no laughter in this song,
There'd be no loving when your gone,

Now leaves are falling to the ground,
The life that's left them turns them brown,
I watch them fall they make no sound,
Just like me when you're not around,
I'm wondering what did I do wrong,
Seems I've loved you for so long,
There'll be no laughter in my song,
There'll be no loving when your gone,

I think I hope you're doing well,
But don't ask me cause I can't tell,
I do my best to act the same,
But I break down hearing your name,
I'm wondering what did I do wrong,
Seems I've loved you for so long,
There'll be no laughter in my song,
And there'll be no loving when your gone,

Maybe someday you'll come back home,
And you'll find me living here alone,
I'll be here like I've always been,
Hoping you'd come back home again,
Still wondering what did I do wrong,
Seems I've loved you for so long,
There'll be no laughter in my song,
There'll be no loving when your gone,
There'll be no laughter in my song,
There'll be no loving when your gone,
There'll be no laughter in my song,
There'll be no loving when your gone,

This is a sweet song and a great collaboration. I have a soft spot for this kind of music. My mother was a country singer and this was the sound I grew up on. Very nice.

Lots of Love Here!
Exceptional track in the Notting Hillbillies style. Warm, expressive vocal. Precise bass that, along with the drums, keeps things steady and gives that rolling along feel. I love the swaying steel guitar lines. Stan's harmonica and guitar again show his talent - and your acoustic guitar tone is wonderful. All mixed into a beautiful track. Once again, downloaded with thanks!

There'll Be No Loving
Hey Andrew, I love it! I have always been a lover of good country music playing guitar for a few in my past in beer filled legions,bars and having the opportunity to learn quite a bit from some of the old time pickers. First, my hat off to Jerry for that smooth authentic sounding vox. This is a well crafted tune and I have a special spot for the chorus with the harmonies. KTB's addition works real nice ... not over done. The trick to good country music is to let it breathe and you along with the rest of the guys have accomplished this. I would never refuse the opportunity to play on a fine song like this one.
Cheers

I knew you had a unique and genuine feel for this type of music and would deliver brilliant guitar parts. It was Jerry's idea to get you to contribute the harmonica solo. It remains one of our favorite parts of "Long Gone." My dad was commenting today on what a great job you did with the harmonica in particular. Thanks so much for contributing. I hope we get to do many more in the future.

Solid old school country, reminds me of "Gentle On My Mind". Sensitive lyric, good hook in the right place. There's a lot of feeling in the vocal. Great performances by the all-star band. Fine sounding mix.

Bravo
As a Country Music lover Im thrilled to hear this one.Just cool in every aspect.The essence of Country Music is to tell a story that others can relate to-you nailed that.(I love the line-"Now the leaves are falling to the ground,the life that leaves them turns them brown.") Nice playing from everyone creating a classic Country feel. To create this with your friends is priceless - And how cool is that to have 3 generations on a recording.
alackbass said 1967 days ago (July 6th, 2012)
Thanks Brian
I figured since you were a Texan you'd know a thing or two about country! Jerry gets all the credit for the great story telling. I too love that 2nd verse. Maybe the best one in the tune. Thanks for stopping by to listen. Jerry and the band appreciate it!
