Incredible! Just listened to all songs with headphones on and I was really really impressed. Everyone's a winner in my book. A lot of talent and great recordings.

Thanks for putting this together and a great job at sequencing the 14 songs. A lot of variation throughout.

Just gave all of them a listen. Everyone should be proud of themselves! Really great job, everyone! Thanks for the time and effort everyone put into this!

 

I've been thinking (don't know how legal this would be) that it could be a good idea to create a bandcamp profile for Greasy Lake and create an album there with these songs that people could just stream or, if they wanted to download it, they could pay whatever they thought was fair and all proceedings would go towards keeping Greasy Lake up and running. I've got a couple of bandcamp accounts so I could help set this up.

Well, all I can say is that every one of you are winners in my eyes... Bloody well done to all of you. I am genuinely well impressed.

The only comment I do have is... Where are the ladies of the Lake??!

You can use the cover I made a few weeks ago if you'd like.

This was my first thought also. Obviously, a man's job ... :P

I am impressed, haven't had the time for a detailed listen, but from what I've heard you are all very talented and I'm looking forward to voting.

 

Congratulations, everyone!

 Everyone of those blows mine out of the water.

Not at all. What I like about yours, even more so that the original, is it's guitar driven instead of organ heavy. Sorry Danny, that's just what I think.
