"Theres A Wild One Going On"

Mixed Well With Clean Breaks
Distinguished instument work and a great arrangement. The rhythm guitar track is at the perfect volume to compliment the horns. The bass stays in the pocket so well, I wish it was allowed a little more attention. Nevertheless, right in time with the drummer. The vocal tone and articulation is great, allowing and fitting in with the feel of the music. Mixing was good, and precise attention to panning paid off. This song is impressive.

Funky Goodness
I'm not sure what drew my attention first, the horn parts (YAY! Someone's got the guts to add horns to the blues) or the funky tripled up horn/bass/guitar bass line. This is such a dancing piece. The vocals are dancing with the drums who dance with the guitar/bass combo who dance with those horns. AND WHY ISN'T THERE AN EXTRA CREDIT BOX FOR HORNS? OH YEAH...as I'm writing me ears are getting the treat of a lifetime. I'm getting a great series of leads - first the muted horn (sounding like Miles when he was in a good mood) and then a TASTY guitar lead. This thing moves and seduces you like a lover in heat. This is the first time reviewing in garageband where I've looked up at the timer and wanted this thing to be 20 minutes long and being disappointed that I have only 20 seconds left. You can bet I'm hitting the repeat button a few times. Don't change a thing, my friends. You have it all in one package.

"Driving Back To Your Arms"

oh boy, it's herb alpert and the tijuana brass. Diggin the 70's funk/jazz vibe here. Trumpets are sychopated and tight. The James Brown groove is pretty slick as well. yeah lyrics are bangin man. Drummer is positively soulful and funkdafied. So ya like the beatles...well I could tell by this song but hey you gotta keep your pimp hand strong right!!!....uh...yeah whatever!
Great trumpet solo here, love the mute, really let's the trumpet cut right through the mix and dig in. Is that a flugel horn that takes a mean solo next...yeah great groovin lines!
Bass player is the man here. Effortlessly holdin down the 1-4-5 with no flubs!
Great tune man...keep up the good work.

"When I Get To Feel This way"

Waundering Woes of Working Welders
Wacky intro. The traveling beat is fun and would be great to dance to, perhaps a fast-ten step. The bass/percussion combination is what really hooked me in on this song. Lyrics have an almost union feel, blue-collar anthem all the way. I don’t know the title of this song but Ballad of the Welder would be a good start. This song is to welders as Lee Majors’s Unknown Stuntman was to the stuntmen of the world. This song moves fast. It takes a very skillful vocalist to perform a song this quick and still maintain some resemblance of enunciation. This is very fun song; the instrumentation is a little wacky at times, but anyone that chews on sparks all day would have to be a little wacky, too as a coping mechanism so the mood fits the song. I can see this song getting grass roots support from welders across America. MIG& TIG welders unite and a few unions getting behind it, too. This song won’t quite get the same meteoric airplay as Johnny Paycheck’s Take This Job And Shove It, but it should do pretty well.

Technically, everything comes together pretty smooth. There is a lot of heart and soul in this song. The pans are pretty well done, I think I might move the background vocals just a hair toward center but the effect is interesting as is.

This song works on many levels. And after listening to it a couple of times it quickly grows on you in a good way. You have done a great job on this track.

NE OBLIVISCARIS (never forget)
listen to the tunes at



This project is primarily the work of Colin and Chris Campbell
Colin has been playing music professionally for the past 35 years. He has also been a Music Educator in B.C. and Yukon for the last 25 years.
Colin's playing career has taken him through large portions of Canada, the U.S., Cuba, Mexico and Central America.
He has also traveled extensively over the Continent with many of his Secondary School Jazz and Concert Bands.
Colin continues to work on a regular basis with several Bands in Victoria, as well as teaching instrumental music in the Victoria School District.
Chris has spent the last 25 years working in the shutdown maintenance world of industry, (oil field, pulp and paper, power generation etc..)
The songs are roughly based on and about the life and struggles that people who work in this field go through,
Places like Edmonton ,Calgary and Fort MacMurry Alberta, Central Ontario and all sorts of places in the United States have people who live "the dream"
There is no one style of music to this band as they need to relate to a wide age bracket of tradespeople, there is definately something in the CD for everyone.
