Hi Everyone.

Appologies to those who have heard this before, but I wanted to include it in My file.

I made the "style", if you can call it that, from scratch,..... with most of the EP, bass,and drums played "Live"....and I used just about every channel ( some of them twice) to try and capture all the fiddly bits that are so typical of Supertramp's songs.

The midi is the original, but the MP3 is a re-worked version with that signature "music box" ending instead of the previous "fade out "

Kind Regards
Gordon

Nothing there to apologize about Gordon. It was good the first time around and is even better the second.

Excellently performed and tastefully executed! Very professional sound. Very close to the actual recording as I remember it.

Some songs don't need close attention to the "little things". However, this one is one that did need it, and you provided it, ... very well. Now, thanx to you, we all get to reap the benefits of listening to your fine creation! Well done!

Hi Gordon
To make this standard you have to know the original extremely well. It's very apparent that this is the case, a lot of work obviously to produce this as close to the original and it's a cracker, yes I've heard it before but I can listen to it when I want as it's on disc.
Well played mate your music is always a pleasure to hear
Cheers
Spike

Hi Gordon

Great to hear this one again .. your attention to detail is spot on .. you must have too much time on your hands to make something this involved

Exellent stuff

Thumbs up Re: Dreamer - 18-06-2008, 09:22 PM

I remember this one, but had forgotton how good it was!

God, this must have taken you ages! How do you remember all the parts so well? Love when the bass kicks in with 'ba bap' Clever lead vocal parts also, must have been tough to find the right sounds for the lead? Excellent electric piano part, got that sounding spot on.

There seems to be no discernible difference in sound quality of the T1, compared to the T2. I'd be well-happy if I could get something sounding this good on the T2.

Nice one Gordon, you've done us Notherners proud lad!

Cheers

Paul

Hi Gordon
No apologies required mate, this is fantastic!!!..You have a remarkable memory for musical detail. I don't know what the "aural" equivalent of a photographic memory is called, but you have it. Sheer magic!
Kind regards
Andy

Sincere thanks to friends :-

KRAZY.....SPIKE.....ANDY b.....PAUL.....ANDY a.

I think the attention to "background" bits came from years of playing rhythm guitar , 'cos as we all did in those days, we leared the songs by listening closely to the records.

Now,...............if only I could remember what I did last bl**dy week


Kind Regards
Gordon

Gordon's professionalism at his best ! ! !
Don't know the tune but that's not importan ; what really is important is this kind of magnificent sounds you get from your machine.
I'm wordless my friend ; I wish I could play this kind of music as you do.
Magnificent and terrific rendition, . . .
My deepest respect to your music, . . . .
Julio.-

Hello Gordon
Listening to some of the music you guys turn out and the way you are constructing these songs makes me envious of your abilities. This is really good
All the best
Ewan
