    I must have missed this on the first go around.  I agree, good song,
good voice.  You might want to bring the vocals a bit forward in the mix
early in the song, they get just a bit lost in the guitar.

    Yeah, the kick is weak but the rest of the kit sounds great!  That's
usually the result of a drummer that knows what they're doing.  I must
admit, it's nice to hear a two minute song again.  After the 60's
everything kept getting longer and longer - usually with nothing much to
say ;-)

    BTW, what is the name of your band?  That may have been in an
earlier post but, as I said above, I missed it.
