Can't Smile Without You by Joe McGinty

Here's something a little different. A cover of Barry Manilow's by Joe McGinty

"Julian Velard on vocals: He’s a super talented NYC pianist and songwriter.

The drum beat is from the Casio MT-52. Later in the song the MPC One does the 80s sounding drums...

The 'whistle' sound at the top is the Pro 3, and the main string pads are the OB-6. The high strings are the Blofeld. Vibes are from the Kurzweil K1000 and the electric piano is the Yamaha CP-25. Bass is the Korg MS-20 (original, not reissue). If you listen closely, you’ll hear vocoded vocals as it fades. It’s the new Arturia vocoder."

"Recorded in honor of the recent passing of Rita Houston and also dedicated to the memory of Mike McPadden.

Written by Christian Arnold, Geoff Morrow, David Martin
