AJ Resings - 2021

Following lockdown and everything else we're having to deal with globally; AJ has recently re-opened and had a vocal session 2 weeks ago - I understand there were quite a lot of jingles sung!

Anyone on here had any? .....and happy to share?

  • They sound gr-r-reat Tony; just hope the ones I've ordered from AJ turn out as good!

    I will post an updated montage of all my AJ re-sings here once the new ones have arrived.

  • Great selection Tony. Love the long musical cut especially! Well done young man .......
  • Here you go then, Tony. The last 2 of these are the most recent ones. As you know, AJ's work is always great quality and great value!

  • I'm only just starting to familiarize myself with AJ's work, but everything I've heard has been great, including the cuts posted here!
  • AJ would probably sell a lot more jingles if he had a website with demos, pricing and contact info.
  • As promised earlier, here's a montage of all my AJ Classic Re-sings, including my latest cuts sung a few weeks ago (from 0:50 onwards in the video):



    It was a pleasure to work with AJ again. :)
  • AJ has posted a montage of some of the latest Classic Re-Sesings from his May 2021 sessions, including cuts for a few JingleMad members:



    His next session is at the end of July and details of how to order are contained within the SoundCloud link.
  • Not digging these.
    Will stay with JAM for personal cuts.

    Love these!
  • The ONLY "cut" that I found to be SOMEWHAT "entertaining" was the "Martin Lester" cut @ 1:39--
  • I ran across his SC demos some time ago but there's no info on rates. Anybody know what he/they charge?

    Thanks I will take that as a complement !
  • I just "call 'em" as I "see (or hear) 'em"...:)
  • I thought they sounded fine.
    I think already being familiar with a jingle might make someone lean more towards JAM.
    I don't know the price, but for me having a jingle that is new is better.
  • I listened to both 'demos' on Soundcloud and they sounded even better than the above montage. Unlike what I hear from most jingle companies today, there were a lot of vocal and technical things I wasn't expecting.

    Perhaps but how do you explain my "appreciation"for the Martin Lester cut?
    I liken this to the FIRST time I heard JAM on WABC--the jingles were DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT from the PAMS/PAMS "Knockoffs" that WABC was using as a"placeholder"of sorts. I WILL Say that Jingle lyric "creativity" has suffered since the early 70's--but that's a "failing"of the Radio Stations. "It all started when Simon Williams became Wonderman"--(Oops-- wrong "contamination" theory--apologies to Thanos & Marvel Comics)...:)

    Nliebo, since you asked me a question, I will answer you. I was not referring to you or anyone in particular. There are other opinions on this thread similar to yours.
    People in general will go with what they know. That's human nature. That was my point. No one said that you cant like other jingles.
    As far as creativity, even radio stations have to have something to work with. At least there was creativity in these cuts.
    Regarding Martin Lester's cut, here is my opinion:
    You said Martin Lester's was the 'Only "cut"' you found 'SOMEWHAT entertaining.' I don't think that's a compliment. What does that say about the other people's cuts on this montage?
    ------------------------------------------------------
    Generally speaking, this is the second thread in the past few weeks involving some sort of criticism of people's personal cuts.
    Admittedly, people run the risk of hearing criticism when they post them.
    Even though everyone has a right to their opinion, people pay a lot of money for these cuts. I think very few people want to hear criticism when they post their cuts hoping the listeners will enjoy them. After all they probably wouldn't have posted them in the first place if they didn't like them.
    I think personal cuts should be off-limits.
    If the purchaser likes it, that's all that matters.





  • Well, I think my Cuts sound good. And that's really all that matters :-)

    Indeed, and the whole point of getting these cuts resung is to have a little bit of Steve Wright in the Afternoon/Morning, Power FM, Q101, City FM etc for yourself. People who buy JAM personal cuts are also buying stuff they grew up with and remmeber. I don't imagine many people buy obscure personal cuts to play to friends. They'll want cuts that non-jingle anorak people might know.
  • I've never yet found an AJ cut that would I feel would adapt to "fit my name" melodically/emphasis unfortunately
    - but I still class the "sound" of AJ's material as one of the most instantly recognisable and distinctive "jingle styles"
    anywhere - and I'm quite happy to still have dubs of some of those "classic ILR" station packages in my collection!
