    A McCartney Cover

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Here's a cover of the Paul McCartney tune, Young Boy form Flaming Pie. The song was played and tracked by Glazierman in our studio, with a final mix by yours truly. The song was tracked using an HD-24 through a Soundcraft Ghost.


    Young Boy


    Let us know what you think.

    Very nice recording and mix (at least over headphones). I'm not familiar with the original, but I can imagine McCartney using this arrangement and instrumentation. The vocal, while certainly not mimicking him, also has the same general character. The slow down at 3:00 is a good break.

    Lead guitar tone can be harsh at volume. Sent me grabbing for the fader

    Other than that I think it sounds really good Even great!

    Vocals are awsome

    Ya......... that lead can make you bleed At least to my ears.
    Where is Darwin when you need him?

    Thanks jmasek for taking the time to listen and provide feedback! It is greatly appreciated.

    The origianl was a duo with Jeff Lynn, which accounts for the ELO feel in the arangement of the harmonies.

    Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

    Freudian Slip (great name by the way ) Thanks for the feedback. Not exactly sure about the lead but I've listened to the song about a million times now and I'm sure I've lost all perspective . Will step away and listen again in a few days with your comments in mind.

    Glade you liked the vocals because there was considerable work getting them down. I think there are at least 14 vocal tracks (have to check track sheets) and could have used another HD-24 ; had to push some tracks up onto the computer. Equipment is like money, you just never have enough.

    I do appreciate you taking the time, thanks.

    No problem. I'm on my monitors that aren't generally harsh and pretty true but, it may not be an issue on other systems (car stereo, etc)

    Once again very cool!

    F.S.
    Where is Darwin when you need him?

    Very nice, very enjoyable. This is one of my favorite Paul songs.

    I thought it was Steve Miller? I know that Steve is on the album and co-wrote with Paul. Anyhoo, nice work, sounds great.

    Thanks DavidK. I know Steve Miller is playing and singing on I use to be bad. I think the album was Paul an several different aritist. Elvis Costello is another artist on the album as well.

    Thanks.

    Really enjoyable listen!

    I agree with Dr. Frued. The lead guitar could be lowered and EQ'd a tad.

    Great vocal harmonies!

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    Good news is I did not zero out the board . I really need to get go and listen with clean ears and fix the guaitar parts.
