    I can't hear it any more. Help!



    Yeah, starting to hear it again. Tweaked levels mostly. Overdid the panning suggestion.





    And three. Thanks to Fritsthegirl and Mickster for nudges.

    The mouthhorn sounds pretty silly in this one. Nothing wrong with the mix.

    If you had released this, as is, in the late 60's you'd be a millionaire today...I have no doubt of it.
    Sounds interesting. Keeps your attention. Good mix. The mouth solo sounds kind of underwater, which went with the lines just before about stepping out of the water and onto the shore.
    Your music sounds nothing like Harry Nillson, but reminds me of him anyway. Don't know why, I'm just whacked that way, I guess.

    Hmmmm..........this one got to me for some reason. I started to stop it. But....then.......it was so out there that I had to see where it went. I liked it!! Can't get away from a bad visual during the "mouth" solos. The only change I'd make is to the full panning of the two guitar rhythm parts. Too far left and right and needs a tad more in the center. The base fills to a degree......but too much missing in the center. Just my opinion. Thanks for letting me listen.

    Reminds me of Peak era Residents but much better recorded.
    The mouth solo makes sense in that context.

    Hey, thanks for the mix comment. However, one man's silly is another man's playful.

    Interesting, thanks. I can play with that a bit. Listen again to the guitar during the lip trumpet parts - your attention's distracted by the lip trumpet part, but the guitar part's doubled there and fills in the center.

    I thought it sounded real good. Tone on everything is excellent and vocal is very clear.

    No nits. It sounds great.

    Yip, I heard it just fine. I like the sudden intro of vocals. I think this might be one of my favourites of yours to date. I like the mouth trumpet, but I wonder if it might sound cool with a few yeah yeahs in the background, bit like that song by the Flaming Lips, The Yeah Yeah Yeah song? But maybe not actually, it's kind of a minimal track maybe that makes it too busy. I like the sound of the rhythm guitar. As usual the vocals are clean and clear, and really well sung and good.

    Tweaked the panning back and forth and gave the bass more body and came up with this - Babies Come Home At Last. Guitars in a bit and bass and djembe separated slightly.
