a really nice, mellow, bittersweet song that features slide guitar.


Apollo 18: the Gemini, and then the Apollo missions that ran thru the 60’s to the 70’s, was an amazing time in my mind; Apollo 18 would have traveled to the Copernicus Crater, but it never happened, and the Apollo program was retired. A bittersweet melody runs thru this song, as the ending of the Apollo program was just as bittersweet.

Love the overall vibe of the track -- and the slide work is just right for the emotional feel and beautifully done!

Great work!

I love it.

I'm 61 years old, and was a big fan of NASA and the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs in the 1960's. I was glued to them.

Sanguine, warm, and melancholy, your song.
Two thumbs up.
Joe Walsh would approve.

sparque,
that's cool, about being such a fan...
i think that program was one of the most forward thinking things america has ever done...
even watching the crappy videos of the moon landings and all that, is still mind bending.

one of the things i always say, when i encounter folks that can't get something done for some reason, is 'they put a man on the moon... in 1969!!"
LOL

really glad you dig this one,
i'm certainly glad some folks can directly link the song to the experience. that's cool.

I wonder why we flew those rockets when we had perfectly good flying ssucers tucked away in Area 51?
Brilliant music, BTW.
