This has got a great live feel and a joy to listen to.

I have listened to quite a few mixes of CG’s work (not all- far too many)and for me this is by far the best I have heard. It is a relaxed laid back interpretation that just hangs there and does the business.

Great stuff!!

WOW! After this, I will get shy in posting new remixes there in the future, but, as for tonight, I may go to bed!

Lovely and laid back. I like the the jazzy earthy “she could be singing in front of you” feel.
Thank you.

Well, quite a rough trick, reverb at 30%…(while mastering I use always 8-11%)

I can repay the compliment now.

I love this. The chords sequence for this A capella is very original and has a very Donald Fagan` The Nightfly’ feel .

The instrumental part is cool so overall a great mix.

I loved Donald Fagen the nightfly when it came out back in 1981, I didn’t think of it while doing this but perhaps things work that way,inconsciously, so perhaps your’re right.
I have a little emotion, I mean: I am replying to Loveshadow, that is, the great Loveshadow, whose 12 songs I skipped through one after the other during an endless night some time ago! THX for posting a comment here

You have a skill for relaxing the soul through music. I found this track to very soothing. I myself tried to play with the CG September vocals but failed. You have created the music around these vox perfectly… well done.

The truth is described in my diary as a miracle: I had written the song BEFORE meeting CG, completed it in every detail and still couldn’t find any single word to it and left there. 7 months later, I found CG website and found words almost perfectly matching the rythm and also very close in the melody. I melodyned the original voice to fit the original tune and submitted everything to CG, who preferred resinging (to my happy surprise). She has also posted the new voice here on ccmixter just today (I learned from her website)

You know what? I’m sat here waiting for Sidney Portier and Lulu to come out and do that little dance they did in To Sir with Love!(lol) This does have a Faganess vibe to it. Nice C-Zone, very nice!!

Peace! ;)-

Thanks for taking the time, I pointed it to you just because I thought it could be closer to your natural genre.
And, as I leave, I know that I am leaving my best friend..
