yes, of course. I knew it from the start and I said it before. Without that incredible shaker this song would be only half that good!  Wink

Thanks Dave,

I think its a mix of mama + papas + dead + chet atkins + beatles perhaps?

Everyone really pulled in a great performance, and I couldnt ask for a nicer bunch of collaborators to work with!!

Just wanted to add another compliment for this one since it looks like it almost never saw the light of day.

You know when the double-tracked lead vocals come in near the beginning, I can completely convince myself that it's a new Beatles tune with John singing. This is more magical for me than the Beatle's own Free As a Bird was. I sent this one around the office and everyone loved it.

And did anyone comment on what Tricia did near the end? Four completely different harmonies for the same background vocal line. Very nice, I rarely hear background vocals infuse so much personality into a tune.

I liked this song from the moment I heard it , and they were kind enough to let me mix it.....I also thought it had a Beatles vibe  , and I actually used ' What goes on ' as my reference track during the mix.

Nah it's you. I didn't mean 4 harmonies at the exact same point in time. I meant that each time the line came around, you did something different to it. You're turning into a jazz musician with this one.

Peter,

Fancy you digging this song up from the mists of time....thanks so much for the very kind words.

This one was a real collab in every sense of the term - everyone contributed original ideas to the song. Holger intepreted the vocal superbly, Tricia added a heady mix of background harmonies, Roger came up with cool Harrison/Atkins guitar lines, and Mark (CD) did a stellar job of organizing us and coming up with a exquisite 'vintage' mix (check out the wispy/sizzle effect of the vocals at places).

I will always retain fond memories of this one.

Cheers
Andy


PS - What Goes On - that reminds me -- at one point Mark threatened to mix all the guitars on the left and the vocals and drums on the right  Grin.....the Beatles catalogue needs remixing not remastering- specially for ipod listening!!!

This is a great tune guys. It came up on my iPod recently and remembered how much fun it was to play. I LOVE the guitar tones I got. I use that patch a lot on my Tonelab as a starting point for new sounds. Everybody did a great job! Thanks for pulling this out of your vault Andy. One of my faves Smiley
