End Of The Road (Dual Mono)

In Dual Robot, Simon's Blog by Simon Townshend17 Comments

Hi All

Here’s an interesting treat for you…. it just so happens that the acoustic version of, End Of The Road was easily time stretched, tuned and manipulated to fit perfectly alongside the electric version. Also, by chance both versions were recorded in mono. How about that, they fit together perfectly! Enjoy!

Stay Tuned for more mono fun over coming weeks!

PS – If you have a balance control on your stereo or player you can pan left and hear the acoustic version or pan right and hear the band version – centered you get the full picture.
*iphone7 & ipads: balance slider is at the bottom of the accessibility tab in settings
*on macs: System Preferences > Sound, then click Output, the balance control is right there; L/R slider
*on windows: control panel – sound > playback tab > click speakers/headphones > pick levels tab > click balance button. There you can adjust L/R.

  1. “Water sweet as wine, stone cold sober” – This is REALLY good stuff, hope you have something more up your sleeve!

  2. Thanks for sharing with us. Truly have blessed us with your thoughts and I take a great deal of hope from your music. Please more, more and hoping to see you real soon. Bill and Renae

  3. Thank you so very much for sharing this with us Simon!!!!

  4. Fabulous!! Awesome!!! I’m using one word superlatives….and there are many!! downloaded…thanks Si

  5. This version the most immersive. And the more immersive the more energy. The meaning,
    to me anyway, is with 1st version all acoustic the ‘End of The Road’ is a pivot to a hardship. As
    you add more input/energy the ‘End of The Road’ becomes more of an optimistic renewal/beginning
    of a new chapter in life as “the clouds have all dispersed”.

    Great music from an artist doing quality work. Am wondering how you might offer an official release. Maybe a trifold disc set with each recording on the 3 separate discs? Or maybe with a 4th, the 4th being the mix of the tunes you chose to be in a larger Simon John Townshend project….

    And I will mention on the new ‘Looking Out/Looking In’ disc you and Eddie Vedder sound great together.

  6. Thanks for giving us another gem of a song Mr. T.

    Hope all goes well at the RAH for the TCT concerts tomorrow and Saturday night.

    Will wait patiently over the coming weeks for another version of a new or old song rebooted.
