This is a whole heap of fun and entertainment, spinmeister. I could actually hear the clink of Clint’s spurs and catch the aroma of his cheroot. In fact, I’ve just found some ash in my hair …

Thanks CB! Ennio Morricone is one of my musical heroes. They finally gave him an honorary Oscar a couple of years ago. Sorry about the ash! :-)

it’s great when a group like BoHeart shows up. thoroughly pro with super-well recorded samples & a unique sound, too. your additions & mix set this up wonderfully well. great job mr. meister.

Thanks for your kind words, PM. Much appreciated! And you’re so right. Well recorded samples / tracks are a treat to work with.

…cue tumbleweeds….Nice stuff…reverb is clearly your friend too :-). A very well constructed track and a treat to hear some gospelly stuff here, which you know is amongst my favorite forms of music.

I read your HIDI … geez…all I can say is I hope it was fun ;-).

Thanks Ms. E.! Mahalia Jackson was a big influence in my musically formative years! mmhhh… makes me wonder, if any of her old recordings are public domain yet?

Great Spin (both interpretations).

Just finished my own version of this so its nice to immediately hear an alternative take. It’s like hearing an established mix… you know the lyrics, but you’ve never heard them like this before.

Refreshing to hear this very well done mix. Thumbs up sir.

oops, I forgot to post a little thank you, so here it is, better late than never :-)

Thanks SA for your kind words, and as you know I like your version very much. And best of luck with your upcoming move!

It has some classic mood which(regarding my age) is familiar to me and also very pleasant as this music brings some calming down in a very hectic life.
I also like the fact, that the BoHeart already meet some same musicians in Germany as i did long time ago.
Nice song Spin!

Hi Spin—-this is just very well crafted music, well done to you and BoHeart. Great that you both can work together despite the many miles.

thanks AT! And yes, it’s a real treat to be able to connect with family and musical friends in this ccM way.

stellar! ;)

just a perfect treatment. yeah, i dig the morricone guitars too. this just feels like a timeless classic, like an updated pancho and lefty.

brilliant take man. very very cool.

thanks MCJitB! After this remix, I felt obliged to update my profile page to publicly confess to Ennio’s influence on my music. :-)

This reminds me a lot of the Johnny Cash contribution to U2’s Zooropa “The Wanderer”. A post-apocalyptic western where our hero wanders empty streets between the tumbleweed and shelled out buildings in search for fuel.

I’m assuming the harmony’s are your signature melo-spin cleverness and well placed. I think the Cohen bros need this for their next movie! ;-)

Thanks J.! The harmonies are a little of each: The ooohh’s are from Bo’s original remix pack, and the harmonies with words are made with VoiceLive hardware.

Love the spaghetti, spinmeister.

(Mr. Meister. Very cute :’ )

And I’m starting to “get” the power of VoiceLive.

…wait a minute… You’re brothers?! 8’.

Thanks ALM! I had been wondering if you’d figure it out :-)

I assume you read the “how I did it”? Because in this remix, the harmonies are a combination of the real harmonies by Bo and artificially generated one’s using VoiceLive.

And no worries, VoiceLive isn’t the first musical technology not understood at first. :-)

I think I got which is which. VoiceLive is a sweet little box.
