A roving bit of bar-band atmosphere,with a clubland feel.

I like that roving bass line and the all the organ bits.

I like the way you’ve integrated the spoken word into the mix.

I like the traditional feel you’ve got going here. I feel the sung portion of the vocal might be brought up and made a bit more dynamic.

The lighter instrumentation at 2, fading into a near-‘pella is nice.
Then you bring back up the percussion,and it’s all fresher for the break.

The “in this world of nothingness” lyric fits with the uptempo blues
feel of the piece. Blues and trad gospel are so often kissing cousins, and here you’ve crossed the feel of the two genres nicely.

A nice mix.

Thanks, I’ve made the changes you sugested and added a couple of bars as an intro and tided up the bridge. Thanks again John

I’ll always have time for a nice old school blues remix. Well done indeed!
