Lyrics
You're The Only Savior (words and music by Richard Blauvelt)

Lord I know that I'm a sinner
and I come on bended knee.
Cause I've heard about Your Son,
I know that He's the One.
He's the only Savior that I need.

Lord I've heard the words of others,
I've heard what they've had to say.
Some of it is true, but they
can't compare to You,
as the only Savior that I need.

Though my sins be red as scarlet I know this is the day.
The precious blood of Jesus will wash my sins away.

Lord I sure don't have the answers
for all the things I say and do.
I'm desperate it's true,
that's why I turn to You
to be the only Savior that I need.

(Sax and piano solos)

Though my sins be red as scarlet I know this is the day.
The precious blood of Jesus will wash my sins away.

Lord I sure don't have the answers
for all the things I say and do.
I'm desperate it's true,
that's why I turn to You
to be the only Savior that I need.
You're the only savior
You're the only savior
You're the only savior that I need

Hey Rich... this is great... If Randy Newman could actually sing (not
that he can't get a song across) this is where he would land... this is
definatly live playing, right?... tell us more about the recording
process... what did you use for recording.... software, studio... this is a
very traditional arrangement, and you have a great voice... be prepared
for the BLUES factor... blues, for some reason get less attention and
lower scores... so here is a blues booster for ya

Hey Scott.. Thanks for sharing this site with me last week. I see alot can happen in a week. This site is definitely dynamic. After listening to some of your songs and as I prepare to check out some of the songs of other writers on this site I see that there are more than a few technically savy songwriters and engineer types here in Macjamland. I'm embarassed to say that this song was recorded on an old Alesis ADAT. I just let the tape role and then manually sent all 8 tracks, one at a time, into Cakewalk through a Roland UA100. I manually synced the tracks (what a pain) and manually mixed the tracks as best I could (sorry that the drums were not loud enough) and sent the final mix to an MP3 file. Truth is at best I'm a songwriter.who loves the Lord. I know a little about PCs and nothing about mastering or engineering. Maybe I'll pick some helpfull hints up from the folks on this site. In closing I have a confession to make. There is not a Mac in the house and I don't know a whole lot about "Garage Band" Ouch!!! . I hope my Macless state is not grounds for eviction.

A Christian Randy Newman sound
Wonderful Christian Randy Newman feel. (I'm a Newman fan.) Love your
vocals, the instrumentation, the blues Gospel feel. Really nice. Welcome
to Macjams. We could definitely use more Gospel like this. Please
consider sending more our way!

Tobin.. Thank you for your kind words. Any similarities between my voice and the voices of singers living or deceased is coincedental.

Ya, it does have a
Randy Newman feel and you deliver in a very pro way!
Impressive!

Very strong in a bluesy, sassy and of course well done.

Of this style, this is one of the very best I've heard here at MJ!

Way to go!

When I sing this song live I get the same sort of comments about sounding somewhat Newmanesque. I always thought they were talking about Alfred E. Thanks for listening

Wow
I must say you blew me away from the first note, You got my attention!
What a great blues voice!* I thought the radio came on or something*
One of the best songs i've heard on Macjams. I love jazz and blues.
Did you write this? I think your voice as great as it is already,would sound
really good if you held some notes with some vibrato on the end, (if you
know what i mean) but well done. I love it!

Thanks for posting!

Wow
Thank you.. I wonder how impressive my voice would be if Randy hadn't paved the way. Anyway there are more songs to post and most of them will be blues and jazz (at least to start). That's my roots. Right now the priority is not to post more songs but to enjoy the music already posted on this site and to get a feel for the community here at MJ. Thanks again for listening

Yeah, Definitely...
Randy Newman sound and feel, minus the wry lyrical twist I would
expect from him.

Sounds like maybe you're a *new man* rather than a Newman, though.
;-)

Nice job, Rich.

More drums
Everybody on this track really smokes. The drums however are to far
back in the mix. Bringing them forward would drive the feel and puctuate
the nice accents that are happening in the tune.

High marks on the subject matter too. Thanks.

More drums
That's funny. The drummer on this track said the same thing. But I took the source into consideration. After all this suggestion on the mix was coming from someone who spends half an hour tuning his the drums and then actually thinks it sounds better/different when he's finished. Just kidding, but you got to love them drummers. Thanks for listening and taking the time to post a comment.

Blues for a Savior that takes blues away!
This rocks! And I think the drum is just fine in the mix. Gives it that
slightly rough "old recording" feel.

Blues for a Savior that takes blues away!
Thanks. I agree. The track was performed live and it sounds it. That's not to minimize what is done in the studio. I'm impressed by some of the productions I've heard here at Macjam. Perhaps that is something I'll have the opportunity to explore in the future.
