OT: Scott, definitely try out the Lawson.  One, it's not that expensive (I mean, it is, but you know).  Two, it sounds fantastic.  And three, it's modular, so you can add the tube body next, or maybe the 251 head - whatever.  A big selling point for me as I'm trying to spend my money in the most flexible and expandable means possible.  One reason for the API 500-series chassis and pres, too.

Thanks to everyone who participates.  Can't wait to hear the results!

Cool back story, Lindsay, and terrific results... I love it when something just comes together despite everything...

Thanks for letting us mangle your work...

I think the bass double makes the tune... I'm not sure if it was intentional, but the electrical buzz jumps out every backbeat... very cool...

The vocal is perfect, first take, damn.  Wish I could sing like that sober, much less a touch drunk.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of my mix...

Best,

Yes,  Wait for it... some of us are on the west coast you know (late risers) ... J usually waits until he figures everybody has upped their files... perhaps Wed. even ...  Until then listen to the files and make notes for later comment... I usually try to comment on all the mixes, so I make sure that all of them have been uploaded before I even start listening... Patience is difficult in these imps ... lOL

my ONLY issue with anything on this recording is the amount of compression on the vocal track.  was hard to wrangle. a deesser-fest.  otherwise, i think the song and performances are working perfectly together and THAT is what matters.  as tom said, if you brought in vinnie to play drums, it would SUCK.  i don't need dave grohl either.  the drums are just fine and none of that shit matters an ounce on a song like this.  the fact that it's super loose is the WHOLE fucking point of the song itself.  

the snobbery going on in this thread is making me want to puke.  thanks to those trying to fight some of it off.

Ok, now that everyone is done with this thing (I think?) how many think that the tambourine was just thrown in to see how many people would actually try to use it?  I just can't believe that this was part of the original tracks Smile  I contemplated copying just 1 hit and pasting it in places, but that seemed an awful like "adding a part" to me, so I didn't.

I was so glad that the tambourine was thrown in. It allowed me to copy and paste one of the hits in the chorus, according to the rules.

Here's the answer to the tambourine, a description of which I left out of my previous post.

We were about done with the track, and it was late.  I walked in from the tracking room and into the control room as Marcus was listening back.  While getting back to the desk, I stepped on a tambourine.  Marcus's eyes widened and he jumped up exclaiming, "that's it!".  Back in the tracking room, he had both fists full of every tambourine I own (four, I think) in front of the L47.  What you hear is what he tracked.

We loved it.

To me it sounded like sputters from the powerlines which were down on the wet streets. Not a rhythmic sound- color, EFX. I put reverb on, and killed the lows ruthlessly, until it sounded sparky enough for my taste Smile

at least it made some sense to you. i left it out cuz i didn't get it. Lindsay said they were drinking all night long and that part came late. maybe i should have a few drinks and listen again. Smile

anyway, good song Lindsay, thx for letting us use it!

This is the first time I've gotten to do one of these. They always seem to come when I've got a project that's gotta be out the door yesterday.

This time it was a project that's gotta be out tomorrow, so I gave it a couple of hours. Hope it works on it's own.

I didn't edit anything, and I used the tamb track. I loved it, too.

Look forward to listening to everyone's, and getting some critiques of mine.
