Another remix from ElRon’s inaugural Peavey Power Slide recording session. While waiting for the Ebay steel guitar purchase to arrive, we decided to ready a reggae song in G or C.

Searching ccmixter for reggae, discovered Clarence Simpson’s version of Fishes in the Sea and that pointed to Sassy Girl and Scomber’s version, neither of which are in G or C. We settled on Bb and repitched the samples accordingly.

Using drums & percussion from,, ccmixter and our sample library plus reggae horns and samples by Clarence and Scomber, we created a backing track for Sassy Girl, Scomber and Clarence’s pells.

Sidechaining: A technique that we do not use enough was liberally applied. A compressor on Scomber’s bass track was sidechained to the kick drum track except during Clarence’s vocals. To reduce the horns stepping on the vocals, the horn (brass section, bone & tuba) track’s compressors were sidechained to the vocal track. Same sidechaining approach was used on Elron’s guitar and steel tracks during the outro vocals.
