This is a very live and loose sounding track from Guitarist Larry Mitchell. One of the coolest things about this track is that the Trilian Bass parts were played by Larry on his MIDI Guitar, which really makes a big difference in the realism of those bass parts. All of the drums are coming from the Retro Funk SAGE Xpander. Good example of how Retro Funk is very useful for Rock stylus too.

"a nifty bunch of top session drummers focusing on laid-back and super-cool funk drumming. Groove Control™ is an amazingly useful addition to any CD-ROM, and Retrofunk uses this feature to the full...this is a release that deals in sheer quality...more than enough authentically '70s drumminq sounds and stvles to keep retroheads and ex-hippies happy. But where this release succeeds best is in providing all the flavour and spirit of retro soul/funk while at the same time fusing it with a 'must-sample' sound quality and an infectiously musical groove. There is a fantastically wide range of drum sounds on offer, from ultra-tinny hi-hats to 'squanky' snares and bass drums that sound as if they are stuffed with cotton wool. But it's not all tongue-in-cheek, and there are some amazingly tight and powerful funk-rock kit sounds that would give even hard rockers a run for their money...Ultimately, Retrofunk's flair, precision, musicianship and sheer usefulness certainly rate it as one of the best drumming discs."
