Hi guys, thanks so much for checking out this first video backing track package from my site. Back in November 2013 I went into Silent City studios with Garry Jackson on Bass and Dave Walsh on Drums to record a series of organic trio based backing tracks that would build and fall naturally for you guys to jam over. The concept was to make cool sounding tracks with real players that would be both fun and challenging to play over and the result is these eleven tracks with close up video of each player.
Introducing new JTC artist Rabea Massaad to the family! And what a way to join us…his debut 20 licks series is a killer product! For starters these licks are very accessible, full of technique and ideas that you can certianly use in your own playing. And secondly, it's a wicked backing track, perfect for jamming over!
This unique 2CD compilation pulls together a slew of previously unreleased material from America's favorite band, The Beach Boys. The collection includes the new stereo remix of Wild Honey, as well as unreleased outtakes from the session recordings. Also included are unreleased session tracks from the Smiley Smile sessions and live tracks from Hawaii, Washington, DC and Boston.
A movie soundtrack that's about half instrumental, but it's not a tossoff: the vocal tracks are as carefully produced and enjoyable as Elton's "real" albums. Highlights include the gentle title track (a Top 40 single), the rocking "Honey Roll," and the anthemic "Can I Put You On." Taupin's lyrics are unusually direct meditations on love and friendship; if you like his more intellectual lyrics, you'll be disappointed, but if you find them annoying, this is an improvement. The low point is a syrupy Mantovani-like stringfest, "Seasons."
