Rough vocal - 1st verse and part middle -



  1. Ghosts Don’t Cry, and Volver, work nicely together. Both of a gentle mind and a little Spanish romance never hurt a fly.

    I’m glad to see the Brits got it right this year, as did the Grammys. Win Butler is not a singer, but the Arcade Fire make do! with what they got. Robbie Roberson cannot sing Rock and Roll – his voice is too falsetto. No! It is not falsetto, ‘tis something else. Neil Young. You have a voice that belongs in a choir, we need some backup. And I don’t mean Bono.

    I am looking forward to this next adventure, Rachel, I mean after all, it’s not as if you are an absolute beginner. You know your stuff. You know how to execute. So I guess it all boils down to this: I think within every great work of art we find attitude.

    All throughout history, there is not one documented case of a ghost actually hurting anyone. This is not to say that they’re all friendly, no, some have a scary way. You see, ghosts are like a mirage, all white and misty – you’ll often find them meandering in the London fog. They don’t pick things up and they don’t carry guns, and when they talk, it’s all kind of wispy. They are physically harmless and yet, poor McBeth, and life’s but a walking shadow…full of sound and fury. Ghosts have been known to scare people to death. That’s how they do it. There is no other way. They have no other tools at their disposal.

    With Love,

    PS; I sent “Dog Days” to a woman I know. Here’s what she said: “Don’t like it. Sounds French.” I had no idea what she meant by that! But I get it.

    PPS; It’s nice to see your hair getting long again, and that mousy-brown colour suits you. Other than auburn, that is your colour. And whoa, is that auburn I see lying down (while you sleep) amongst the flowers, with a blade and a sheet of music? Or does the sunlight play tricks with my eyes?

    Here’s Robbie, for your listening pleasure Rachel, and thank God this is not Rock and Roll.


    I like Robbie's almost Spanish sounding guitar and the dramatic piano chords - cool.


  2. I'd have to say, this is probably my favourite pic from this project so far. Who took these photos? Very rich colour, love it!!

  3. magnificent. soothing, calming.
