Title: Give Me Oil In My Lamp - Special Cover!
Post by: LBro on April 05, 2018, 09:46:12 pm
Hi,
Welcome to GMO (Give Me Oil In My Lamp), the longest project Roman and I have ever done to date. Your looking literally at about 7 months of work, mainly in the audio realm and getting all the vocalists tracked with their busy schedules..

I really felt Roman would never do such a song as this but I think once he found out what it was about he was “in”. This is a special song that had 3 generations of 6 vocalists in it and this took a long time to coordinate. From 2 granddaughters under 10 to my 3 daughters who are adults and myself as a grandad. Add in Leo, Roman and Victor to fill out this roster and you have GMO as we call it. See credits at the end of the video for who did what.

This song is special because I did it with my daughters back when they were under 10 about 30 years ago for a large audience. So now my daughter’s kids are in this version. This will be handed down to the next generation so their kids can hear mom, gramma and great grandpa when they come to be. But that is not the extend of play for this one. I played this for my friend who is a DJ and has a weekly radio show. He had not heard this song in about 40 years and wants to end one of his radio shows with it. So if that goes down then this will get radio play as well. If that happens I will try and snag an on air copy of the song and DJ comments for you to hear in another post – “stay tuned” as they say in the business!.

Video beach scenes shot on location in Kona Hawaii!

Pay special attention to “Take it away Girls" @ about 1:13 in the video. See Verse 2 below, I think these vocalists stole the show. Too bad they both had colds.

In MHO Victor smokes on Lead Guitar!
Leo lends his new acoustic guitar to the mix too!
Roman – Well, without him this does not happen!
Thanks guys!

Family of Girls and Women Vocalists!
Thanks Gals!

Hey LB

Special indeed. Well done to all, for the performances and for seeing it through.

I really enjoyed your take on this classic. Rocks along with a hint of country. All the singers delivered, for sure.  Also good job on the video.

Good luck getting the radio airplay.

Blimey LB I thought you'd put this to rest, as it seems ages since you bounced an earlier version past me. Wow that's got to be a record for Roman, what a testament to his support for your song that he's been there all along. Well I'm glad the two of you stayed the course. Its a great family colab and wonderfully put together. Musical links across the generations is a special thing but to perform as one is beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Toby

PS when the dust settles after my mother's funeral maybe the 3 of us should hook up as we've discussed. Really need to get my "stuff" back on track. Be good Dave  ;)

LBro, The wait was definitely worthwhile.  Homerun, grandslam!!!  You and the team are to be commended for a really top-shelf production here.  Not only are the vocals and instrumentation top shelf, the message of this song, while light and airy, is deep and meaningful.  It's exciting about the air time this can get, too, and I look forward to your updates in that regard.  Again, just top-shelf, and kudos to all of you.  This is truly a "Special Cover".

Thanks Fox for stopping by and the kind words! Yep a ton of heart in this one. Mind you we did not work 7 months non stop on this. It just took that long to track all the singers. Again, thanks for the spin!

Rockin' another way...

There's one thing you can say for this forum, it has variety!

What a fantastic production of a pretty good sing along praise song - we've used it for open air services from time to time.

I love the generational thing and I can imagine how much work and co-ordination went in to pulling it all together.

Thank you so much for sharing this, it has got my day off to a good start.

Sing Hosanna indeed!

Blimey? LOL – I think I know what that means! Yes, this project was a bit long in the tooth for sure Toby! Roman was a trouper and I warned him up front this one will take a while. I had no idea it would be 7 odd months long… Our ship stayed the course for sure but had to weather some storms along the way. No big, we got there in the end, safe and sound! Pun intended!

Toby I hear a heavy heart sharing about you Mother’s funeral. If I can be of any assistance, let me know! You know where to find me my friend.

I try my best to “be good” but in honesty I always aim to be true and honest.

You are welcome on sharing, our pleasure. Yes, maybe we can cobble together a collaboration one day.  ;)

All my rocking best to you and yours!  :)

Hi OH!
Good things can take time to brew up Sir! Thanks for the kudos for sure and that is speaking from ALL of us. Ha – an out of parker homer might throw a few OH, for sure! I think what you mean is that we did our level best! Some call this “my” song, but I can honestly say that without Roman and the crews help there is no way this would have come to pass, PERIOD!

You know OH you not only have a golden voice but your insight is up there as well. Keep sight of that as it has and will serve you well.

A special cover is something I can agree with you fully on. I almost was teary when posting as I thought of the sick little girls doing their collective level best for the song and “Grandpa”. They tried so hard and it really showed IMHO….

All my rocking best to you and yours! I guess I give you a pass on "Suzi-Q". But I like the way you walk and the way you walk there Suzi-Q... yeah JF sang that with gusto for sure! Hope the best on this one for you too OH.

You and I are in the same boat on sharing from the heart there pkboo… Thanks on the video, kind of simple but is something to look at for sure. Still waiting for the day all agree to “show their mugs” online. But at the same time the Internet is not the innocent place it once was. No matter, we simply do the best we can.

We, the crew thank you for the listen and your kind words!

May you be in good stead as you rock on!

Mr. B – you are spot on I think in your saying about “variety”. For me I think there is also a lot of diversity as well.

Wow – Great to hear you know this one and use it in your services! Did you know it is now PD? I think it is over 50 years old now and has gone to the Public Domain.

Spot on about the work and co-ordination, very much a time consuming challenge for under 3 minutes of “product”, LOL   ;)

Glad your day is starting well… as the song says – “till the break of day”.

Ha on “sing Hosanna indeed!” – Uh the wife has this song stuck in her head and is humming it all the time now! – That is a rare thing indeed!

Take care as I always find you thoughts insightful!  :)

Aaaah Toby, I'm so sorry to read this. I know you've travelled a torturous path during the past while as you've supported your mother. The battle with the health system made it all the harder for you. I send you and your family my condolences and a big hug.

What a great family project with, of course, Roman, Leo, and Victor adding their special talents.  Congrats on sticking with it, the final result proves it was worth all of the hard work.  Fabulous work by all involved!

Up-tempo country praise songs wouldn't be a genre I'd normally place a tick next to but this one did tick the boxes.

Some cool country guitar licks in there for good measure.

Good work la famille LBro,

Hi Leo,
You need to tell the folks about the guitar you used on this one! I know it is no longer "new" but it is still very cool!  8)

Thanks for the nice words on the cover! You sure helped make it what it is! Thanks for “pitching in”!
 ;)

I happen to think “my girls” are pretty special too! Just wish at times I could get to see them more. As you know, our kids get busy and at times are hard to pin down.  :(

Carry on and let me know what you have next in the pipeline!  :)

Hi Lynn/Red,
Well if you’re talking pipes I am here to say the “Girls” did not get them from me. That would be the other side of the fence in honesty. I “attempt” to sing, whereas all the women in my family can flat out sing IMHO and it really did not come from me. I am just fortunate to be able to capture them now and then! But it always costs me a pizza when I do. Small price to pay to see them and share over it you see.  ;)

I am a humble guy or at least try to be, but it is hard not to be proud of my girls and the entire crew that made this possible!   :)

LB – Rockin’ proud in Seattle! – Look out Jimi, I’m coming to get you!  :D

Yes I thought I was in labor as I worked on this “love”. ROFLOL!
Roman probably has less hair now too!  :-X

I talked about “proud” in another place but yeah that is a feeling I get. I am just thankful all that contributed were able to do so and their efforts helped make  GMO a nice cover!  :)

Ok Sweed,
I know your still upset my lowly M’s beat your Cubs second stringers….

But you da man for owning up to it!

Yeah this was a family deal all the way Sweed! I think that is what attracted guys like Leo, Viktor and Roman! It did not hurt that we found a great “crackin’ ” version to cover. But I think my girls vocals are better frankly.  The mix is better too, thanks to Roman’s skill set and pay grade… uh, I think he did this one for free!  ???

Sweed it was a labor of love worth doing and the song will be around a long time, possibly a few generations.. Stay tuned for the radio version as that is in the works too!  8)

Cubs rock – We got you shorthanded but I now suspect your record is far better!
What's next from your end?

Thanks Close for your frank honesty! I appreciate that in you and in your comments!  ;D

So in YHO would the song be better down-tempo? LOL – I don’t think so….
Yeah – Thanks for the tick my friend!  8)

Viktor and Roman both nailed some great guitar work. I tried to do some and worked very hard at it but my efforts in that area were going to really fall short.    Maybe next project!  :-\

The crew and family thank you for both your thoughts and all you do here Close!

Hi all,
Thanks for your positive feedback :) When 7 months ago Dave asked me if I could manage that project I said Yes, Why not. But I did not expect it to be THAT long ::) :) But in the end it turned out to be a nice song with 6 singers (Dave, 3 dauters and 2! granddaughters), drums, bass, 3 tracks for electric piano, 2 tracks for acoustic guitar, 1 track for mandoline, 1track for electric solo in the beginning, 1 track for electric solo in the middle, 1 track for electric rythm :o  But I had fun with that project and thanks again for listening.
Cheers and keep on playing 8)

LBro what I hear and feel when I read your are 'proud' is the heartfull of love and appreciation you have for the women in your life. If that's proud, it's a good thing. Makes me smile a lot, so does your music. Still amazed at the complexity of this project.

Me? Don't want to snatch your thread away from you, but briefly, I'm plodding along with arrangements, vocal interpretation, chords (triads in particular, ow how those steel strings hurt my fingers after a days practise) fingerpicking, more complex strums that challenge me. None of it is worthy of posting .... yet. I'm also very busy with The Honeys as we prepare for our first Open Mic. My new guitar would have been finished weeks ago, but the humidity here in the sub-tropics is preventing Pete getting the protective layers sprayed on. Till it's less humid he can't move forward.

Hi David,
Great to hear your wife gave it her blessing and thumbs up. I think the granddaughters flat nailed their parts. The little one was beaming but her voice was so spent on that verse 2 I could not possibly ask her to do chorus.... just too little left after the verse with her cold and all.

The song has about 10-12 versus. Glad to hear your wife liked "Truckin' and "Unction" as I was unsure what ones to do. There sure is a lot to fit in under 3 minutes of song, that is for sure!

Thanks again for the feedback and rock on as best you know how!  8)

Hi Roman!
Yeah 7 long months but indeed it was a very rewarding project that could never have been done without your skills, guidance and keen ears! Thanks for pointing out some of what went into making GMO from under the hood so to speak. I sure appreciate all you did on this one and when it came sauna and suds time, I wish I was there to enjoy it with you! Maybe someday we can get together and jam a bit!

Till then carry and rock on!

BW, well for one thing it is hard not to love to death my little granddaughters. Unlike most of these vids, one is actually in this pictorially. She is the one bending over by the water’s edge right at the start.

When you talk complexity you are spot on. Getting everything together was  a big undertaking. This project was pretty much a team effort. Whereby Roman took on most of the instruments and I molded most of the vocals. Probably the hardest part what simply trying to figure out who would do what or who would sing what. I think in the end it came out pretty good and hopefully is not a mash job, but rather a nice arraignment that is pleasing to the ear! You indicate it did indeed come out good so I guess we rung the old bell a good one!

Wow, you got a lot going on there BW. Some of which spins my head in complexity. I hope it all turns out well for you and you get it all glued together.

Thanks again for stopping by and taking this one out for a little light. We all appreciate it very much and value your comments too.!

LB & Crew are waiting for you to “rock on” BW…

Well Leo I am an old fart and the memory is not as keen as it once was. So you see I recall you had a Gibson acoustic but none of the other details. So thanks for stopping by to fill in the blanks for us. You sure made that guitar sing in this. I even more so look forward to your next project and hearing how you put the J-45 through her paces! May “good sound” indeed bless your finger and the sound hole erupt with good harmonic notes! 8)

Rock that thing on in style Leo!

This is just amazing. I Loved this song, juste everything from it. No surprise it took you several months. really good job with the different generations working on this.

Thank you very much for all your work on this, this is great, you can be proud !

Hi Cag’n’,
Thanks so much for your encouraging review! Your enthusiasm is contagious and helps one consider to do more of these months long projects. You have very diverse musical tastes, at least that is what I gather from your post!

Your welcome on this little number. The crew and I are fired up over your kind words and are so happy it lit a few fires out there. Stay tuned as the Saturday the 14th radio version is all set up to go down.

Cheers and good rockin’ to you!

Hi Rick!
You make me think of the Hendrix song "cross town traffic". Something like "Tire tracks all across you back, I can see you had your fun". Yeah, rockin from the past and then some. Thanks for the kind words and do take care!

Rocking in my Rocker,

Brilliant - brought a smile to my face - a really joyous song nicely performed. Sing hosanna - brings me back to my own childhood.

Hi LB.

Thanks you very much, I am really touched by your kind words. I indeed like a lot a various (rock) music and try to play various style. And I think I'll like your taste in music too ;)
You are clearly a good musician, and good songwriter, I need to learn that too.

Keep on rocking ;)

Hi Guys,

Well, I can't claim to be a massive fan of the song or genre, but I very much applaud the motivation behind it.
Great to hear music being put to such great use and a great memento for all involved.
Very well executed; sounded a lot of fun.

Hope it gets the radio play.

All the best.

Hi,
Thanks for stopping for a spin and commenting! Well this well could bring back memories of your childhood as it is a kids church song. We heard another version of it that was uptempo and decided to give it a shot that way.

Take care,
LB

Thanks for the nice comments Cagn,
Ah, I am not the musician though in this one. I worked long and hard on the guitar part (acoustic) but never got past the campfire performance level. So Roman took it on and then Leo did it with his new axe. Also if you notice there is top quality productions when Roman lends a hand and there certainly is a difference when I go it alone or without Roman's help on an original. When I do originals that is a huge challenge for me. I learn new stuff every song and am still looking for "paydirt"....  :o

So at any rate that is some insight on what I am involved with.... On musical tastes I used to be very narrow and on a classic rock only bent. But over the years I grew to like things I even used to hate. Like country, big band and much more. I think part of wanting to be a musician is taking in many genres and learning to appreciate them for what they are and the talent  that produced it.

But rock - rocks,
LB

Hi Diggs...
Was hoping you would stop by as you have been laying low for a while on your end. Hope work is not pressing you into hamburger.

Thanks for the comments and well this one was for the kids. So indeed you might find it a bit "different".

Radio play, if it goes as planned is in about 2 hours. I am going to try and snag a copy and post it in another thread. If you see this can you tell me if you were on AM with your stuff or FM? Might be best to put that in the Radio Thread when and if it comes to pass.

Take care,
LB

Hi Leo,
I actually snagged that stream and was going to post it. I still may but the Station Manager was kind enough to offer me a digital copy done at the station and I am hoping their quality is better than I what I "intercepted". I will say more about all this in the new thread posting of just the radio part of it...

Thanks for the king words and rock on!

Very nice little family project, and congrats on getting some air time ;)
I think I remember you and Roman talking about this a long time ago... good to see it's finally done, and the end result sounds as good as expected!

Cheers,
Kasper

Hi Mari and thanks for the kind words. On the radio I had hoped to get something up already but I only have 1 poor copy to date of the "on-air-play". The station manager was to send me a copy and never did. I will get working on it this week and see if I can get a better sounding copy, then post it.  Stay tuned as they say!

Ready to Rock on the Radio!
