I guess Mrs. Uribe was more right than I was able to recognize at the time.

I’m so glad you like it Vic. Means a lot to me. Happy anniversary to you too — if it weren’t for you, none of us would be here today, in this way. So seriously, thank you. And thank you for turning me onto ccMixter.

Great choir Susan, terrific lead vocal, and please thank Haskel for that great Gimme Shelter sound…. He’s truly great.

Thanks Richard. I showed Haskel your comment. I will be getting all the stems up (including Haskel’s) soon.

Nice indie sound. Lots of voices in it I can recognize.

WOW! What a special blend of guitar and vocals. Those voicings together have some magical power. Haskel is an amazing talent as well are you. Should be an opening scene to a movie.
Ed-picked.

Thank you Greg. It means a great deal to me that you like my music and found this track ed pickable. There was a serious face off with my limitations in this one, and honestly, I thought of you and your crystalline productions a lot during the process. Haskel is amazing too — I’m lucky that he is willing to play along. Stems will be up soon.

A wall of sound! This is so catchy!!! Love that you went with the Secret Mixter theme for your vox and pulled together such a splendid team of musicians. YESSSS!

There’s a whole lot to like about this mix. Too much to go into detail, mostly it’s just downright enjoyable.

Oh and - nice bass! I hope that’s in the stems.

Thanks Speck — so glad you like it. I was incredibly grateful for “Roll Call” - thank you for sharing. And thank you for being part of our musical family. ccMixter wouldn’t be the same without you. Yes — the bass will be one of the stems once I get them bounced and uploaded.

Wow this is great! So catchy. Great vocals, and Haskell’s guitar fits perfectly. Also like that you went with the ‘music connects us’ theme. Very cool to hear my stems reworked in a way that I would have never imagined.

So glad you like it. Your source material is fantastic. I am really no good at remixing vocals so these stems were perfect for my skill set. Thanks so much for sharing and being part of the ccMixter musical family!

Thanks Jeris. It was a crazy one to mix (41 tracks including the aux tracks).

I have to agree with V - your production skills have blown off the Richter. Beautiful

That’s really nice of you to say Scomber because I don’t consider myself much of a producer at all — although I do work very hard and keep trying to refine my skills. I envy folks like Scott Altham who can quickly throw something together and have it end up sounding fantastic.

Thank you so much dear Ditto. It has been so nice to have your music with us lately and to have you as part of the secret mixter mix! You most certainly are a sweet member of the ccMixter musical family. (I simply love your music.)

Great remix on many levels, music, vocals and lyrics. I like a lot your harmony vocals (not only here, in general) they always sound like mermaids singing and her voices stream over the waves…
I love to read your notes introducing the song and and finding the right words for ccmixters anniversary. I think this means something. Communities like these need persons who can care and hold things together.

Thank you so much for your very kind words. I always enjoy reading what others write in their song descriptions too. It’s so nice to have you back at the mixter at this time too.

I find State Shirt incredibly difficult to remix. You done good, Susan.

Been on travel so I am just now getting around to listening to the top secret remixes. A week in the French Quarter with no weight gain. Yeah, baby!

Oh wow, what a fun surprise to have my vocal “covered.” So glad that I was able to inspire you. :)
