Broadjam Artist: Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods
Song: A Cold Blade Tells / Blues Rock

Reviewer: Marc S. Pate

Positive Comments: Great guitar tone. Tasty and sparse, I like that.

Constructive Comments: It’s very well done, don’t have much. But, just thinking maybe a cold stop, or two, would add a nice contrast.

The Usual Victim by HarryBudini

Broadjam Artist: HarryBudini
Song: The Usual Victim

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Groovy psychedelic vibe that reminds me of Lennon, Bowie, and more currently, Of Montreal. Of course it’s Harry. I think you’re using your voice perfectly in this one. Cool sitar touches and swirling feel. I really like at 2:20 where you starting hitting one One with sitar splash–this gives it a Funk that really works.

Constructive Comments: That bridge comes in really late–it should be a good bit sooner. The bass & drums are kind of fluttery and don’t really settle into a smooth rhythm, which detracts from the song. I think they’d be so much better if more simple and grooving on the beat. The words are a bit hard to understand at times.

Waiting by Richard Walker

Richard Walker

Broadjam Artist: Richard Walker
Song: Waiting

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Really nice baritone vocals that remind me of Ron Sexsmith, as does the song. Maybe Rufus Wainwright a bit too. Good production, playing, and arrangement. You’ve borrowed The Beatles’ “Listen” in the progression which will make it familiar but not so close that it’s a copy.

Constructive Comments: The bass is overpowering with a loud low end. It needs to be backed down and thinned out a bit.

Everybody Needs Somebody by FRED GROSS

FRED GROSS

Broadjam Artist: FRED GROSS
Song: Everybody Needs Somebody

Reviewer: Marc S. Pate

Positive Comments: Very nice! That’s a nice tune, nice playing, great harmonies.

Constructive Comments: The mix needs a little adjustment. Bring the vocals out a little more, smooth out the drums and rhythm section a bit. But, you have a nice little tune here, it’s definitely a keeper!
